What are Backlit Office Signs?

Backlit office signs have LED light strips mounted to the back of each letter allowing a light to glow around each letter providing a “halo” effect. Backlit signs are typically made using flat cut materials like acrylic and are raised off the wall on special clear and metal mounts. The acrylic is sometimes finished with a metal face with painted silver edges to match.

Benefits of Backlighting your Sign

  • Helps draw attention to your sign
  • Increases visibility
  • Increases impact
  • Makes viewing the sign more memorable

Backlighting requirements

While backlighting is a great way to help your sign stand out from the wall, especially in poorly lit areas, only certain signs with large enough letters or bold font may apply for illumination. Illuminated letters or symbols must allow enough space on the back to hide 1/2” wide LED strips without running into difficulty.

Backlit vs other lighted options

We most commonly use backlighting with flat cut dimensional materials. A few other lighted sign options include:

  • Backlit Metal Channel letters
  • Face-lit Metal Channel letters
  • Acrylic Channel Letters
  • Frosted Illuminated Letters with backing panel or box
