Lightboxes

A Lightbox is a cost-effective way of bringing any design to life as a cool sign. Our retro Light Boxes consist of a powdercoated steel box with either a vinyl-covered acrylic face , or built up acrylic lettering. We then illuminate the face of the Lightbox from behind with LEDs, therefore bringing the design to life as a Lightbox Sign. We can paint the aluminium mount in any standard RAL colour and fix a graphic to the face. No matter what sort of Lightbox sign you’re after, size, colour and design are all customisable, so just pop us an email and let us know what sort of lightboxes you’d like.

How do I commission my own Lightbox?

Design & Colour

All of our Lightboxes are powdercoated metal, meaning we can paint them any standard RAL colour that you choose. Our default finish is satin but we can paint your Lightbox gloss if you would prefer. The most common way for us to produce faces for our Light Boxes is for us to print your design onto vinyl and then fix it to opal acrylic. The light then shines through the graphic and illuminates your design. Alternatively, we can cut your design from acrylic to give the face of you Lightbox a 3D effect, which can also be used to create edge-style effects. If you’re not sure what design you’d like then we can design it for you. If you already have a design then we’ll produce that.

Light source

Lightbox signs were historically illuminated from within using fluorescent tubes, but LEDs have superseded them as the preferred light source of a Lightbox. The LEDs are located within our lightboxes, being securely fixed and emitting a choice of colour at low energy and low heat.  Lightboxes can have either Warm White, Ice White or even RGB illumination, giving you a full range of colours to choose from. Should you wish, this would also enable you to change the brightness of your Lightbox which is an option we often recommend if using the light box in still or motion photography. 

Size & Construction

Whether you want landscape or portrait with deep sides or a narrow profile, we’ll produce your Lightbox to the exact size you want. The sides and back are produced from metal with a high quality printed vinyl attached to an opal acrylic front, which illuminates when the lights shine from behind. The beading around the face of your Lightbox sign is removable, meaning you can change the acrylic panel if desired – perhaps if you’d like to change the design from time to time. All of our Light Boxes are designed and produced here in the UK using CE-market components. We only use recyclable acrylic and steel for our signs, meaning they’re all produced in an extremely environmentally friendly manner.

All of our Light Boxes are made to order and as such, we can do them in any size subject to a few restrictions. What’s more, they’re all made here in the UK which means we can deliver them to you very quickly with short lead times.

Why should we choose you for our Lightbox

As a multi-award winning family businesses, many of the World’s most famous brands ask us to design and produce their Light Boxes for them. Not only are they extremely good value, offering you high impact lighting for the investment, but we can turn them around very quickly so can supply Lightboxes at the last minute to add finishing touches to your signage projects.
