As the sign is such an important feature of your business’s branding, enhancing it with lighting could help you to get more out of your signage and attract more customers to your premises.
The main reason that businesses opt to light their signs is visibility. There’s no denying that a sign which is brightly lit up through the day or night is more visible than those without illumination.
When you have put all that time and effort into creating a sign that perfectly illustrates your company’s personality, illuminating it can be a great way to get your brand message across and make the most of all that hard work.
There are many illumination options available for signage, some of the most popular and effective options include:
Halo Illuminated Letters typically have a metal face with an opal polycarbonate back tray. LEDs are mounted to the rear of the face and shine through the opal backing to create a ‘halo’ of light around each individual letter.
Face Illuminated Letters, as the name suggests, have the face of the letter illuminated. They typically will have acrylic faces with LED modules fitted to a back tray.
Acrylic Illuminated Letters are very versatile for lit signs. Suitable for bold fonts and logos, these signs can be lit from all sides, or face only.
Lightbox Signs can be used indoors and outdoors and are one of the most commonly used forms of illuminated signage. Lightboxes have an acrylic face with LEDs installed to the back plate of the box. Printed vinyl graphics are then applied to the acrylic face to bring the design to life with illumination.
Stencil Cut Signs are cost-effective illuminated panels suitable for external or internal use. Aluminium panels are cut to house acrylic inlays, coloured acrylic or vinyl can be used to create corporate colours. LEDs are added to the back tray to shine through the acrylic creating a cut-out lit letter effect.
Neon Signs are lit by long luminous gas-discharge tubes that contain rarefied neon or other gases.
