Backlit signs are signage elements designed with a lighting source on the back that illuminates the front surface of the sign. These signs are used in a variety of environments, from outdoor advertising to indoor signage, with the primary purpose of improving visibility and visual impact, especially in low light conditions or at night. Backlit signs are highly effective for highlighting messages, promotions, logos and any type of content you want to reinforce.
The main function of backlit signs is to attract attention effectively and ensure that the message or information on the sign is visible even in low light situations. These signs achieve this effect by using a light source located behind the sign surface, which illuminates the front content evenly. This lighting creates a sharp contrast between the message and the background, increasing readability and visibility, both day and night.
Backlit Signs are commonly used in outdoor advertising such as billboards, store canopies, road signs and business signs. They are also popular in indoor signage environments, such as signs in airports, train stations, shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, and more. These signs can be customized with graphic designs, logos, promotional messages and any other content you want to highlight.
The choice of materials for backlit signs varies depending on the application and environment. Transparent materials, such as acrylic or glass, are common for the front surface of the sign, while light sources can be neon tubes, LEDs, or fluorescent lighting. LEDs are particularly popular due to their energy efficiency, durability and ability to produce a variety of colors and visual effects.
The backlighting can also be customized to create special effects, such as letters or images that appear to float in the air. Combining backlighting with translucent materials allows for significant creativity in the design of “Backlit Signs.”
