Lightbox Signs

At Platinum Signs one of our specialties is the design and manufacturing of custom lightboxes. Lightbox signs have many uses in business, and they can be installed on the inside and outside of most buildings. All of our lightboxes are manufactured in our Australian workshop and are of the highest quality. They are made with all the internal lighting installed, an aluminium and steel body (unless noted), with the panels being made from acrylic, polycarbonate, or a flex face banner. It’s these panels that you can have printed with any design or text of your choice. As our lightboxes are custom made, they can be constructed to your specific measurements and the size you choose is generally only limited by your budget. If you’re looking for a lightbox sign, backlit sign or other type of advanced signage, call us. Based in Sydney, we offer lightbox signage at competitive prices and can even serve Melbourne, Canberra, or throughout Australia.

Illuminated lightboxes are a fantastic method for displaying your business to the world at any time of the day or night. You can use traditional lettering or add in 3D lettering for an extremely professional look. The majority of lightboxes we produce use advanced LED technology as the lighting source. LEDs have many advantages over other lighting options, including a longer lifespan and not producing any noxious gases, and are cheaper to run; they are the best option for a reduced environmental impact.

Benefits of Using Light Boxes

With fierce competition in Sydney, you’ll want to make use of every possible advantage when it comes to signs and signage. This is where having a lightbox sign can help. Consider these facts.  A lightbox is visible at night, and this allows you to advertise your business through your signage at all times of the day and night. Also, as the lightbox can be double-sided, it does not matter which way the sign faces, it’ll be just as visible. Light naturally attracts people, which is why you’ll see advertising lights used everywhere in major cities (especially if you ever visit amazing cities such as Las Vegas or New York!).

There is little doubt that many customers will decide on what they think of your business before you even get a chance to talk to them. When you have a professional sign, you are already breaking that first barrier, as it tells them you care about your business and makes it easy for them to find you. Signs tell them what you’re capabilities are. They are informational and they build your brand.

Things to Consider when Installing Custom Light Boxes in Sydney

A lightbox sign should be in a position where it has the most impact and can be seen from a good distance. Standing out from the crowd is also ideal, and this is where a totally custom lightbox is going to fit in well. To get the most from your lightbox, we’d recommend the following:

  • Have a good look at your business from all angles, think about where your current signs are visible from and what they may look like when you’re adding light. Will they perform better if moved? Review your business at night. What places may the lightbox perform best?
  • What type of design do you like? Is your current logo modern or might it need a refresh? If you’re planning on updating any parts of your logo, doing it before organising a lightbox may be best. Consider hiring a designer for your lightbox, this will mean you can get the maximum value out of the sign.

How Much do Lightbox Signs Cost?2022-01-27T18:17:53+00:00

Without knowing the specifics of your particular sign, it can be hard to give out a ballpark figure. All signs are different, and many variables go into what makes them a certain price. We are able to work with most budgets, so please feel free to get in contact with our team for a quote. Simpler, standard ones range from $1100 to $1600 on average, depending on the size involved, being single sided or double sided print. The ones that are fully customised, full acrylic boxes, push through letters added or custom shaped ones can go considerable up, depending on the size and complexity of the project ranging on average around $2500 to $4000.

How Long will it Take to get our Lightbox Sign?2022-01-27T18:16:51+00:00

This all depends on the complexities of the lightbox, but a good approximation is around two to three weeks. We can confirm a date after we discuss your particular needs. We may be able to have quicker turnaround for standard size ones, potentially delivering the order within a week.

What Kinds of Designs Work for Lightboxes?2022-01-27T18:15:19+00:00

Generally, the light will do all the work for you, but it is best to keep the design reasonably simple. Many businesses have found that a logo and brand messages are more than enough to attract new clients. You can print out your design on paper and hold it over a light source to have a rough idea of what it may look like.

How are your Lightboxes Illuminated?2022-01-27T18:14:42+00:00

In the past lightboxes used fluorescent tubes. However, a better method is with more modern LEDs. LED lightboxes are considerably more cost effective to run, have an increased lifespan, and come with minimal maintenance requirements.

What Types of Lightboxes do you Supply?2022-01-27T18:13:55+00:00

The style of lightbox you’ll go with largely depends on where it is installed. We have single sided lightboxes to install on walls, or double sided ones that are ideal under awnings, or on top of buildings. We also have 3D lightboxes that include ‘push through’ lettering for a unique look.

How Durable are your Lightboxes?2022-01-27T18:13:24+00:00

In many cases our lightboxes are installed externally, so we fully understand that they need to be durable and hold up against all sorts of weather conditions. They are made of steel and aluminium to help strengthen the box. When considering different quotes, it is important to ask what the internal structure is made from. Cheaper lightboxes generally use cheaper materials and may not last as long as others.
