Custom Marquee Signs and Letters in Los Angeles and US Wide

Marquee signs and letters like cinema light boxes are a tried-and-true method of advertising and branding. Their retro look has captured the imagination of movie-goers and fans of dazzling displays worldwide. Front Signs offers custom marquee signs with shipping and installation in Los Angeles and across the USA.

No matter how the signage industry develops over time, custom marquee signs continue to be a popular choice because of their classic look. In the past, marquee signs were made with fluorescent light bulbs. As LED bulbs became more popular, sign makers started using them instead of fluorescent ones for a number of reasons.

For one, LED lights are more durable, which means less maintenance. Secondly, LED lights are eco-friendly and have a better impact on the environment. Lastly, they are more cost-effective than fluorescent bulbs so you can save on electricity bills and invest more back into your business.
