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.

Marquee signs are also known as cinema boxes for a simple reason. Cinemas were the first establishments that began using large marquee letters. Over time, many other businesses such as restaurants, theaters, bars and other businesses started using light up marquee signs. 

There are a few types of custom marquee signs that we offer. Whether you need light-up marquee letters for company branding or interior decoration, you can find them all here. We offer vintage to contemporary marquee signs made of top quality materials.
