Backlit Graphics

In a marketplace with branding as far as the eye can see, backlit graphics add dimension and visual interest to static advertising, showcasing your business by day, and glowing like a beacon at night.

Whether indoors or out, the marketing experts at AlphaGraphics can help you design remarkable backlit photos, posters, and building signs that not only elevate interest in your brand but inspire people to do business with you.

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

Outdoor Backlit Graphic Signs In Raleigh, NC

In order to remain competitive and gain more viewers, it benefits you to pay close attention to your outdoor signage. Long gone are the days of being able to slap a logo and a design onto a bus bench and have the phones ringing off the hook within a week. This is why you should let AlphaGraphics in Raleigh design your next backlit graphic sign. We have the experience and know-how to design a vivid, eye-catching sign that will draw viewers and attention from near and far.


You may not have realized outdoor signs are meant to attract two different groups of people—those on foot and those sitting in traffic in their cars. In order to effectively reach both audiences, you need to make sure that your outdoor sign is designed in a such a way that it can easily be seen and read by both.

Viewing a sign from a few feet is simple enough. Being able to view that same sign from 25 yards away as you’re sitting in a car stuck at a red light is something entirely different. AlphaGraphics has expert graphic designers on staff who can help you design the perfect sign that will attract as much attention as possible.

Good design principles are only part of a successful outdoor backlit sign. The other part is the actual construction and design of the sign—and that is best left to the experts at AlphaGraphics. We have been helping the local business community for many years and as such we know how to get the job done right the first time around.

Let's Get Started

We can create three different types of light boxes to fit your needs and budget.

  1. LED boxes are our most popular option, from a visibility and energy savings perspective. LEDS are extremely bright, last many times longer than a conventional fluorescent bulb and have a sharpness to them that is hard to beat.
  2. If you’re looking for retail graphics, then an edge-lit LED box would be what you’re looking for. They are less expensive than a LED box, but still use LED lights sparingly around the entire frame.
  3. Finally, we can create the tried-and-true fluorescent light box which has been a staple of the outdoor advertising realm for well over 50 years. The graphics are lit evenly by a standard fluorescent bulb.  These types of boxes are great for when you have a lot of boxes that need to be created, but you’re on somewhat of a budget (as compared to LED boxes).

No matter what kind of outdoor backlit sign you’re looking for, AlphaGraphics in Raleigh can design and create it for you.
