Welcome to this edition of the TechTraksTM newsletter.  We at Holiday Technologies appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to read this newsletter and hope you pick up some helpful information along the way.

We have been hard at work locating, designing, and building new products we think our customers would be interested in purchasing. Additionally, some of our existing products have been flying off the shelves (such as our FM transmitters). We will continue to add products to the store so check back often. You can visit our store by clicking here.

We have several things to discuss in this issue so let's get started!

We recently added several (ok, many) new videos to the Showcase section of our website showing off what some of our customers have done in the past as well as introducing a few of the new products we are bringing to market.

For example, our new chasing arch tunnels are sure to be something people remember about your display and come back time and time again to see.

The lights can be chased up and down the arches in different directions.  Add more than one arch and many different combinations of visual effects can be realized.  Add different colors and the effects are off the chart!

There are two different types of arches:

  • an elegant, thin archway that's approximately 1 inch thick
  • a "fat" archway approximately 6 inches thick (tall, not deep) that gives the archway a different appearance

The arches can ship with or without LED-based lights installed.

If purchased with lights pre-installed the units come with LED-based light strings, featuring the same durability and low power consumption as other LED-based displays.

Click here to find out more about the 1 inch archway.

Click here to find out more about the 6 inch archway.

Have a technology that you just don't understand or a product you can't figure out even after reading the manuals?  Chances are we've used that very product in other installations and can get it to work for you.

We offer on-site training for both individuals as well as groups of people.  And should you be interested in a more turn-key solution we also offer installation and programming services.  Allow us to do your installation and go to sleep at night knowing the work will be done and the show will go on!  Please contact us for more information.


By now everyone has heard what a difference LED-based lighting makes to both the amount of maintenance you do on your display and the size of your electric bill (they both go down!). We have added quite a number of products to the online store since our last newsletter. Probably the most visible (no pun intended) of these are the LED-based lighting products we now offer.  These include:

Just click on the above pictures to learn more about those products. Please note - pricing on LED-based light strings will be changing later this summer.

We are also proud to announce our new Build-a-Sign product.  This product allows you to build custom LED signs by selecting the letters, numbers, and symbols you wish to use in your sign. It is the easiest and most inexpensive way to take advantage of bright LED technology to catch people's attention.

Here's a link to the Build-a-Sign sales flyer and another link to the Build-a-Sign user manual.

Several different options are also available for these signs, including a flasher module.

As always, please contact us if you see or learn of an item that interests you and you don't see it listed on our store.

Feel free to contact us any time.  Here is a handy contact sheet you can print and place on the front of your refrigerator, right next to the kids' drawings. Be sure to check the website often for new product announcements.

You always have the option to contact us and request to be placed on our mailing list.  We can also remove you from the mailing list if you so desire.  Simply call us at 913.626.6226 or e-mail us at

You can also use one of the following options to subscribe or unsubscribe:

We encourage you to forward this newsletter to all the people you know who you think would be interested in adding a bit of technology to their holidays.  It doesn't matter if it's a birthday, St. Patrick's Day, an anniversary, the 4th of July, or even Christmas.  There's always an opportunity to "tech the halls!"  See you next time!
