Lightbox - Illuminated signs

What are lightbox signs?

When it comes to illuminated signage, there are two main differences between a lightbox and a flex face sign.


Lightboxes are typically constructed from an aluminium frame which houses the LED lights. The frame has an acrylic panel to the front, upon which the graphics are printed. When the light is turned on, the lighting shines out through the whole of the acrylic panel illuminating the details, colours, graphics on the face.

Bigger lightboxes require joins in the acrylic panel on the front. This join can sometimes be visible when the light is on. They’re a fantastic solution suitable for many a social club, takeaway shop, estate agents etc but if you’re concerned about the join, it may be worth spending a little more money on your project and looking at a flex face sign.

Flex face - Illuminated signs

Perfect for larger illuminated signs

Flex face signs

Flex faces are similar to lightboxes in that they’re a form of illuminated sign and they have an aluminium frame which houses the led lights. However the face of these illuminated signs is where the difference lies.

A flex face sign has a printed skin, imagine a drum skin. This is held taunt over the aluminium frame by a number of hidden clips along each edge of the illuminated sign. This gives a couple of clear advantages.

  1. Large distances can be covered in one skin, meaning no joins at all.
  2. If you ever need to change the graphics, you’re only changing the skin and not the whole sign.

Flex face signs are incredible as large scale led signs. Whether it’s for an illuminated signs on a business building, high up on an office external wall or across the entrance to your premises. We provide highly detailed proofs prior to manufacture.

Fret cut illuminated logos

Illuminated custom signs and designs

A simple, yet entirely effective form of illuminated signs. If you imagine a sign made as a box, with the led’s inside the box.
Think of it as a rectangle which is fixed to the wall of a shop. Now cut out your business name & logo from the front of the sign. When you turn the led illumination on, the light will shine out through the letters and logo you’ve cut out. That’s a very simple summary of a sign with a fret cut logo or letters.

We use lasers and machinery to complete the task of cutting out the logos and letters. We then apply a sheet of acrylic inside the box and seal it so water can not get inside. It’s a long lasting illuminated sign which will delivery your message to the world time after time.

As the lights are high quality LEDs, they’re low energy so cheap to run, and won’t need to be replaced on a regular basis like the old style of fluroescent tube signs. This is a great way of creating illuminated signs for shops , businesses and companies where you would like your brand to stand out from the competition.

Push Through - Illuminated signs

Push through letters and logos with internal illumination

Now we’re starting to get a little more into the high end signage. This is a step on from the fret cut logos with internal illumination we were talking about above.

We’ve added a photo here which we hope helps explain this range of illuminated signs and how the push through letters differ from the fret cut signs.

Either option is manufactured from high quality materials and stands out at night or on dark evenings.
However, the extra aesthetics from the push through letters do add an extra level of class to the signage as the photos here hopefully show.

Trough light illumination.

A cheaper form of illuminating a sign

Trough lights, aka pencil lights, are different names for the same thing. They both offer an illumination solution which increases the visibility of your signage. They’re one of the lower cost options and can be installed at a later date.

It’s very likely that you’ll have seen these tube like lights positioned above or below a shop sign.

The light shines back towards the signage creating an illuminated area visible across the wall.
They’re a low price lighting option and are suitable for a wide variety of uses, but are typically suited to shop and office signs.

      If you are nervous or anxious about getting your signage done then these are the people who will put you at your easy with their friendly, helpful and patient approach they guided me through the process. They listened, asked questions and made suggestions to ensure they understood what I wanted the finished signage to look like. I loved the end product, so a huge thank you to you all.

    • Suzie Hellier

      Really great quality and service from Signet Signs. They came and helped us re-do all of the signs in the GP surgery. I would definitely recommend them and have used them since for additional work.

    • Kevin Munnings

      I was very happy with the level of service that I received from Signet Signs. The customer service was excellent – including the re-working of artwork prior to manufacture to get exactly what we wanted. We (Pitch Architects) will certainly use them again!

    • Paul Daly

      Thank you so much Signet Signs. Sam and Kieran were awesome. We are a new business and needed some guidance with our designs and signs. We were guided every step of the way with advice from absolute professionals and nothing was too much trouble even when we asked for the almost impossible on a really tight time frame. Cannot recommend these guys and this company enough.

    • Ian Barker

      Of 5 quotes obtained Signet were the best on price. All the people that I dealt with either by phone or e-mail were polite and very knowledgeable of the products that they sell. I would definitely recommend to others in need of this product or service.
