LED Lighted Signs

With over half the year in darkness, you want your branding to keep working for you even at night. With LED illuminated signs, you can increase your brand awareness at night and get a sign that is energy efficient, reliable, cost-effective and low maintenance. Lighted signs can also be used indoors to make your brand pop.

Our LED signs use concealed illumination built to your specifications, so you don't need to compromise on perfecting your sign branding strategy. There are three types of illumination to choose from.

Types of LED Lighted Signs

Face-Illuminated or Front-Lit Signs

The most common type of lighting is the front-lit or face-illuminated signs. The face of the sign is built of translucent acrylic which allows the light to shine through making the front of the sign light up. The acrylic face can be made out of a variety of colors. Front-lit signs are easy to read and offer great visibility at night and over long distances.

Back-lit, Reverse or Halo Signs

Known by several names — backlit, reverse or halo — this type of lighting makes the sign appear to float off the wall. The face of the sign is made of solid aluminum and the back of the sign is either open or covered with a translucent acrylic. This allows the light to shine out of the backside of the sign.

During installation, spacers are used to put space between the wall and the sign allowing the light to create a “halo effect” that surrounds the shape of the sign.

Front/Back Lit or Combination-Lit Signs

A Front/Back Lit or Combination-Lit sign allows light to shine through both the face and back of the sign. This allows you the option to choose one color for the face and a different color for the back. This contrast of colors can make a statement or is sometimes used to make a sign more readable at night. For example, blue colors work well during the day, but can be hard to read at night. Adding a white color coming out of the back, makes the sign visible at night.

We have been working with Spectrum Signs for seven years. I asked around before hiring them and Rick Ferraro's name kept coming up over and over. During our rebranding, they helped come up with designs that highlighted our new look and helped solve color issues and poor lighting from our previous signage. They did an amazing job and I appreciate their attention to detail and making sure that all regulations and permitting were taken care of. I continue to use them to this day and would, without a doubt, recommend them and have.
