Examples of Our Light Boxes

What Are Light Boxes?

The term "light box" sign can be broad. They are best described a box uses lights behind a printed graphic to illuminate the sign, making it both eye catching in the day and visible after dark. Depending on the need, an illuminated sign cabinet can be designed for indoor or outdoor use:

Indoor light box signs use a box made of acrylic or plastic and print the graphic on fabric or translucent acrylic. They can be lit with either a fluorescent light or LEDs for maximum brightness and efficiency. While they can be installed permanently, indoor light boxes are also light enough to transport.

Outdoor sign cabinets are designed for durability to allow them to withstand harsher weather conditions. The cabinet for an outdoor light box is made of aluminum (to resist rust) and the graphic is printed on acrylic. To increase brightness, these signs use outdoor LEDs or rows of fluorescent lights, which help them stay visible even in low lighting.

The cabinet for the light box is customizable whether it’s crafted from aluminum, plastic, or acrylic. From the colors we offer, the most common options are:

  • Bronze
  • Matte Black
  • Gloss Black
  • White
Light boxes are available in 3” and 4” deep profiles. Thin profile sign cabinets minimize the space required for the sign and make them more lightweight for convenience.When designing a sign cabinet, there are a variety of different options for installation and display. These include:

  • Wall Mounted – Both indoor and outdoor sign cabinets can be installed directly to almost any flat surface. They can be used to label a storefront or for a flashy indoor display.
  • Window Display – Light cabinets can be mounted or hung in windows to display products and business information to passerby.
  • Hanging – Popular for displaying a company name or product offering, sign cabinets can be suspended from a bracket on the building’s face. They hang over the walkway and offer increased visibility from both directions.
  • Pole Illuminated – Light box signs can be mounted on a pole. Pole illuminated signs can be larger than other light cabinets, making them visible from further away or allowing space for several different business names. For this reason, these signs are popular for shopping centers and parking lots.
As the face of an illuminated sign cabinet is acrylic or fabric. Any graphic can be printed and used for the sign face. This can include company name and logo, custom graphics, product photos, or industry related imagery. Graphics can be rendered directly onto the acrylic or fabric to maintain color quality and sharpness.

Benefits of Light Boxes

Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

What is Your Return Policy?

Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.

What Signs Are Best For Indoors?

All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.

What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?

There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.

What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?

Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.

How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?

Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.
