    Light Box Signs FAQs

    Q.

    What’s the difference between neon and LED illuminated custom signs?

    A.
    LED and neon custom signs have their own audience and areas of application. LEDs provide a brighter light, while neon lights have a warmer glow and are more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. A neon bulb can also be used to add a romantic or atmospheric feel to a location. Bear in mind that compared to LED lights, neon lights require higher electrical usage and are expensive to replace. Also, LEDs are more affordable than neon lights (the maintenance of LED lights is also way more affordable compared to neon). If you’re looking for a more modern sign, then we suggest you choose an LED light box. But if you want a retro looking sign, then neon light boxes and letter signs are perfect. Your choice will depend on the needs of your overall design, layout, and purpose.
    Q.

    What materials can I use backlit decals with?

    A.
    As backlit decals need light from behind to transfer through them, a transparent material is a must for their base. These required materials used are acrylic and Lexan. They also allow the graphics printed on the decals to be brighter and clearer.
    Q.

    Can I get my backlit decals in the shapes I want?

    A.
    Backlit decals are versatile. They can be cut any shape you choose. Any detailed or complicated image or shape can be cut from this malleable material. Our vinyl plotter cutting machine is capable of anything! And printing options widen the possibilities of creating any design.
    Q.

    What is the original color of backlit decals?

    A.
    Backlit decals start as opaque but that doesn't mean that your printed graphics will have white on them. The white background makes the print more vivid and is seen only on places without printing. If this doesn’t work for your design, just tell us what color you need the unprinted parts to be and we will ensure you get the exact graphics you have in mind.
    Q.

    How are light boxes made?

    A.
    To make a light box we use the combination of an aluminum foundational structure with an acrylic or Lexan face. To create the logo on the sign, we use UV inks for direct printing on the acrylic or Lexan. The ink is dried with ultraviolet rays during printing, which makes the printed graphics sun and fade resistant. Besides printing, we offer vinyl letterings to write anything you want on the light box sign.
    Q.

    Can I change the light bulb when it burns out?

    A.
    No, you can’t change it yourself. If a bulb in the LED stripe burns out, our professional craftsmen will come and change it during working hours.
    Q.

    Can I use a light box in the house?

    A.
    Yes, you can use light boxes in your home. Usually, people get cinema light boxes as a means of decoration as you can have anything written on these signs. Popular choices include names and quotes to hang on a wall or put on a desk.
    Q.

    What colors are available for light box signs?

    A.
    We can print on a white plexiglass sheet in any color you desire, since the signs are all customized. Also, we offer plastic and metal sheets in different colors and finishes to create one-of-a-kind artwork for your business.
    Q.

    Why choose LED lighting for your light box sign?

    A.
    LED lighting has become the number one choice for almost all modern illuminated signs including light box cabinets. LED lighting has huge advantages over other types of bulbs. For instance, LED bulbs have a longer lifespan, offering 20% more hours on average compared to fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. They are 30% more energy-efficient and less costly in the long run. Also, this lighting system doesn’t require much maintenance and runs on low voltage. With flexible design, color options, density and pixel pitch, LED is a fantastic option for your branding and marketing goals.
    Q.

    How are light boxes fabricated?

    A.
    Most of the time, light boxes are made of translucent plexi and, for more specific uses, Lexan material. This helps to withstand vandalism while giving a lifetime warranty on manufacturing quality. The light box foundation is usually made of aluminum, giving you peace of mind knowing that you made the best investment in the future of your company or organization. To create the logo on the sign, we use UV inks for direct printing on backlit decals, plexiglass or Lexan. The ink is dried with ultraviolet rays during the printing, which makes the printed graphics sun and fade resistant. Besides printing, we offer vinyl letterings to write anything you want on the light box sign.
    Q.

    What is backlit film and how is it used for a light box?

    A.
    Backlit decals are a great way to make your message more visible, delivering it to a broader audience. The backlit film adheres to an internally lit sign face to create back-lit signage. These semi-translucent decals are removable and can be changed and replaced. The vinyl has a 75% opacity and works best when applied to glass, acrylic, and similar translucent surfaces. More specifically, backlit vinyl serves as the best example for light box signs, cinema and theater boxes, or outdoor advertising. Due to its special quality - light transmission and clear message delivery - it’s one of the best signs for brand visibility day or night. A backlit sticker can depict the company name, logo, a quote; all these options are at your disposal. Apply backlit decals to your store window, light it from behind, and let people know about your sales, coming or current promotions, news, and more - even when you’re closed!
    Q.

    What is the lifespan for LED lights?

    A.
    The normal lifespan for an LED lighting system is 100,000 hours, which is roughly 11 years. For a “salesman on the street”, attracting customers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, a light box sign turns your business into a recognizable landmark.
