Following is a press release from Bogar Enterprises:
After reaching international success with the replica of The Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, Bogar Enterprises, LLC is launching five new themed souvenir products honoring additional recognized icons that represent Las Vegas and one of Las Vegas’ most loved performers, Elvis Presley. On the heels of the original sign’s success, Bogar has developed two new products licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises and one product with VEGAS.com. The company is also offering The Welcome to Las Vegas Sign replica as a night light.
The original Welcome to Las Vegas Sign replica has taken on a new look, honoring Elvis Presley’s life in Las Vegas. Bogar Enterprises has added Elvis singing “Viva Las Vegas” to the already successful Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, keeping the same iconic flashing lights and famous flashing star as the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, and adding a 30-second clip of Elvis’s hit song, an Elvis photo and a shiny plaque that reads “Viva Las Vegas.”
Fans can also look for the ELVIS ’68 Comeback Sign, a replica of the towering backdrop when Elvis performed his NBC television special, popularly known as The ’68 Comeback Special, which aired on December 3, 1968. That special was one of the biggest television hits of the year. The ELVIS ’68 Comeback sign features white Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that display red lights and like the backdrop sign used on stage in 1968. Bogar’s replica adds a 43-second sound chip playing another one of Elvis’s most recognized tunes, “Don’t Be Cruel.”
Bogar Enterprises, collaborating with VEGAS.com – the official Las Vegas travel Web site, has replicated the quintessential VEGAS.com logo into The Vegas Sign. The sign features VEGAS.com’s famous red arrow with white LEDs around the border and yellow LEDs in the word “VEGAS” that lights up, flashes and points visitors to Las Vegas. Launched in 1996, VEGAS.com garners more than 50,000 visitors from all over the world who take advantage of this site each day to book hotels, shows, night clubs, packages, golf tee times and more. Since its debut, VEGAS.com’s logo has become one of the most recognized icons associated with Las Vegas.
“Our original sign was very successful with tourists and locals – they loved it. We wanted to build on the interest in the souvenirs and introduce new products that are representative of Las Vegas,” said Bob McMonigle, Owner and President of Bogar Enterprises, LLC. McMonigle continued, “No similar products exist and we are confident the new products will become just as popular as our original sign.”
The ELVIS ’68 Comeback Sign and The Welcome Viva Las Vegas Sign have a suggested retail price of $49.95. The Welcome to Las Vegas Sign has a suggested retail price of $39.95. The VEGAS Sign has a suggested retail price of $29.95 and the Welcome Nightlight has a suggested retail price of $9.95. These products can be purchased in casino gift stores, hotel gift stores, specialty stores and souvenir shops throughout Las Vegas. To purchase the signs online, visit www.LVSignCo.com.

Hey why not. If you consider hanging a big goofy illuminated sign post on your wall as a classy move, then I'm on your side.
