Backlit Lobby Signs

Get noticed with a backlit sign

Backlit signs provide an element of interest and visual excitement to your sign and office space. Our backlit signs are illuminated with low-voltage, state-of-the-art LED lights. Typically, these lights are white but you can also use RGB colored lights and dial into an exact color from the spectrum for a striking effect.

Before you choose a backlit sign, keep in mind that you’ll need an electrical junction behind the wall or in the ceiling above power the sign. We will provide the power supply (transformer) needed to power the low voltage LEDs. Also, adequate access will be needed in the ceiling and wall to run the wiring (Link to FAQ). Backlighting adds a significant amount to the sign’s price and installation costs.

Backlit Lobby Sign Options:

Backlit Stainless Steel "Halo" Lit Letters

Individual fabricated stainless steel letters, with “halo” effect backlighting. Faces are waterjet cut, returns bent by hand and welded to face, to form a hollow letter. LED’s are inserted, and letters floated off the wall with spacers to provide a breathtaking “halo” lighting effect on your wall
