Back-lit signs | LED signs and Lighted signs

Cabinet-type internally lighted signs have many names but basically, it is a metal cabinet with LED lights inside (they used to be fluorescent) that light up a face that is translucent so the light shines through illuminating the graphics and letters from the inside. Or it can have a solid aluminum routed face where the letters and graphics are routed out and backed with translucent acrylic. 


The first example (AAA) lights up the whole sign face and the second (Aberdeen Fabrics) only lights the letters and graphics

AAA Storage is a two-sided vacuum formed face and letters, graphics, etc. by moving the face outwards away from the sign it helps to stop hot spots allowing for a narrower (less expensive cabinet) and It gives ridigity and strength to the face.

Aberdeen Fabrics has two routed aluminum faces so that the letters and logo light up and shine at night.

The choice of which style and which material is decided on, depending on such things as height of the sign, its size, shape, and general design, plus prevailing weather conditions and local sign ordinances and regulations.
