Illuminated Sign Cabinets

Illuminated sign cabinets (also called “light boxes”) are popular types of exterior signage for businesses in retail environments. These signs are typically illuminated using LED lights on the interior of the sign, allowing them to be seen day or night. They can be mounted directly to a building or can be a part of a free-standing structure that contains multiple light box signs for businesses in an area.

The exterior of illuminated sign cabinets are made of rigid pieces – usually metal, fabricated to hold the face of the sign in place. The face of the sign contains a graphic and is made of a translucent material that allows light to show through. The interior of the sign is empty, which allows you to use different illumination strategies.

This type of sign is very forgiving for brands who plan to change their messaging over time, or for property owners who know that there will be multiple businesses using the same sign cabinet over a long period of time. This often leads to cost savings in the long run. The face of the sign can simply be removed, the graphic reapplied, and the new face reattached.

We can help to create and install brand new light box signage, or we can help you switch out the graphics on an existing one.

Typical Pricing

Pricing for illuminated sign cabinets depends on multiple factors including size, hardware, graphic information, illumination/electrical work needed and installation. Once we have a firm grasp of your sign needs, which usually occurs after we have performed a site survey and contacted the city planner to discuss the sign options for your location, we will be able to send you a rough estimate of the project cost.

Art Requirements

Our team consists of talented production and graphic design staff with impressive industry experience. The price we estimate for your project includes all production costs and may include two rounds of design for your signage (this may vary depending on your situation). We recommend that you work directly with us to create the designs for your sign. If you have worked with another designer on the sign, we may have to make changes to the design to fit the sign requirements by the permitting office (if required).

Production Information

Production time for illuminated sign cabinets varies based on multiple factors, including face size/graphic size, hardware, electrical work required, and installation. Typically, we can provide a timeline for completion once the sign package has been approved by all parties including you (the client), your landlord, and the permitting office.

Material delays, weather, and holidays may impact timelines for these projects. We will try to meet your deadlines, however, sign creation is a complex process and requires time to be done correctly.
