Vivid backlit signage & graphics get noticed

Backlit graphics, or translucent signs illuminated from behind with a light source, are a sensational way to promote your organization’s name, logo and product offerings. AlphaGraphics offers durable, eye-catching signs that will shine day and night!

Our backlit signage options

Backlit signage requires two basic elements: a light box and a printed graphic.

The three main types of lightboxes are:

Fluorescent Graphics are evenly lit by standard fluorescent tubes

LED Intensely bright but energy-efficient. Require adequate diffusion to evenly spread light

Edge-lit LED Popular for retail graphics, these inexpensive light boxes house lights evenly spaced around the frame


At AlphaGraphics in Apple Valley we can help you showcase your brand’s message with visual interest and dimension using backlit graphics.

It can be difficult to stand out in today’s constantly stimulating environment.  Our backlit graphics can help put your brand in lights and give your product or service the credibility they deserve.  It’s impossible to miss backlit signs since they are illuminated from behind.  The applications for backlit graphic signs are endless whether the sign is used indoors or outdoors.  Billboards, bus stops and building signs are popular for outdoors and malls, trade shows and restaurants are popular indoor uses.



Backlit graphic signs can show your customers that you’re serious about promoting your business and are willing to make the investment necessary to ensure your continued success.  Our friendly experts work hard with you to determine the perfect material and lightbox that will be perfect for your needs.  Prior to starting you may want to consider these following questions:

  • is it being displayed for short or long term use
  • what size
  • where will your graphic be displayed
  • are you looking to customize or use a template

Since the cost has come down and the materials are more durable than ever before, the demand for custom backlit graphics has grown rapidly.  Thanks to the advancements in technology we have several lightbox options for your backlit graphic.  The three options are fluorescent, LED and edge-lit LED.  How are they different?  Fluorescent bulbs provide an evenly lit graphic and won’t cause hot spots.  LED lights are more energy efficient than fluorescent and are exceptionally bright.  Edge-lit LED lights are commonly used in retail graphics and use little power making them less expensive.  Regardless of which one you choose, your backlit graphic will demand attention with its vibrant and accurate colors combined with your chosen lightbox.
