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


Showcase your brand’s message with visual interest and dimension using backlit graphics from AlphaGraphics in Minneapolis.

Standing out in today’s constantly stimulating environment can be difficult.  At our Minneapolis commercial print center, we can help put your brand in lights and give your product or service the credibility it deserves with our backlit graphics.  Backlit signs are illuminated from behind making them impossible to miss and with numerous indoor and outdoor applications, they can be designed to stand out just about anywhere!.  Malls, trade shows and restaurants are popular indoor uses where billboards, bus stops and building signs are popular for outdoors.


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 expert team will work with you to determine the perfect material and lightbox.  Questions to consider prior to starting include:

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

The demand for custom backlit graphics has grown rapidly since the cost has come down and the materials are more durable than ever before.  Advancements in technology have provided several lightbox options for your backlit graphic including fluorescent, LED and edge-lit LED.  What’s the difference?  Fluorescent provides evenly lit graphics and won’t cause hot spots.  LED lights are exceptionally bright and more energy efficient than fluorescent.  Edge-lit LED are less expensive light boxes that use little power commonly used in retail graphics.  Whichever you choose, your backlit graphic will demand attention with its vibrant and accurate colors combined with your chosen lightbox.


Our Minneapolis Alphagraphics is more than just your local, corner print shop.  We are a full-service center with a phenomenal team of friendly and highly skilled customer service representatives, designers and print specialists.  If you’re looking for other eye-catching signage, we offer acrylic and aluminum signs as well as coroplast signs just to name a few.  Your brand’s personality is communicated through your signage.  Let us help you capitalize on a great brand awareness opportunity!
