Light Box Signage – The Preferred Design
If there’s one fast and immediate way to let customers know you’re in business, it’s with a lightbox signboard on the front of your store. They’re not only eye-catching but also evocative of professionalism, quality, and success. Plus, they do double duty by continuing to advertise your business long after you’ve closed your doors for the day. It’s no wonder these are by far the most popular types of business signage.
Lightbox Sign Boards also provide some of the most interesting and eye-catching options when it comes to signages. Not only are they eye-catching, lightboxes have the advantage of being even more visually appealing at night.
The Preferred Design is a Light Box Signage
Next time you have a moment when you’re out and about town, turn your eye upwards. Take mental note of all the storefront signs you see around you. You can bet the most successful businesses with the budget for it will have light box signage out in front of their stores.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s day or night: LED lighted signs stand out no matter what time of day.
Design-wise, the lighting will take the creative elements in your sign and augment them dramatically. Once you’ve seen your business sign done up in light box style, it’s hard to imagine going back to a traditional signboard that does not incorporate any light at all.
How to Choose a Light Box Sign
Your strategic investment in a light box signboard for your business should take the following points into consideration. Just a little background knowledge on how light box signs work and what options you have will go a long way towards helping you make a wise investment. What you want to shoot for is a sign whose look is befitting your business and which also gives you the highest return on investment.
Here are a few tips for choosing a light box signboard:
- Decide if you want a 3D effect on your sign. This is called “box up” designs, which are usually front lit, back lit, front-back lit and can be customized infinite ways with vinyl stickers. The stickers give your sign a branded look and will be matched to whatever logo design you give the sign maker.
- If you decide to go for a 3D look, you can choose floating letters/logo or choose to have a the letters/logo mounted on a platform which serves as a backdrop for your sign. One nice effect you can add when you have your sign mounted on a metal or acrylic platform is the backlit effect. This creates a glow around the sign, for a very dramatic look at night. This is the classic light box design.
- Don’t forget to check restrictions in your area, especially if you are in a mall. They may have their own guidelines on the types of signages you’re allowed to have.
