Fabric Light Box Sign Benefits


Our light box signs are made with LED lighting. By using only 20-30% of power that most other signs do, this makes them both cost efficient and more environmentally friendly. No fancy tubing or other electrical parts are required. You can also customize the level of “brightness” you want – something you can’t do with fluorescent signs. Our fabric is also highly durable, with minimal upkeep required to keep it looking fresh and new.


Unlike glass, plastic, or other popular sign materials, fabric doesn’t allow for glare that makes the text difficult to read. You can easily view the sign from any angle, in any kind of light. Fabric, more so than other materials, is better for displaying colors, as the detail comes through more clearly. Because we can print in full color graphics, this allows all colors to pop.


If you’re like many businesses, you need to change your sign up often. Once you have the light box, we can create numerous affordable signs that you can use to replace your current display any time you need to, all with the same durable material.
