About Illuminated Signs

Sample case

Illuminated Signs
  • Today's illuminated signs usually use LEDs as light sources, which are safe, energy-saving, high-brightness, and long-life. Although solar energy and wind energy are used by more and more users due to their green characteristics, when used as power sources for illuminated signs, these green energy sources need to be matched with energy storage batteries to ensure the stability of the current. Therefore, the stability and cost of this kind of power supply will all be worse than the mains power. Therefore, we recommend using mains power. Whether it is civilian AC or industrial AC, it will be more stable.
  • The vast majority of LEDs are driven by safe 12V DC power. Therefore, if the mains power is used as the power supply, the AC transformer is required to convert the AC power into the 12V DC power required for LED operation. Therefore, it is recommended that before purchasing, you first understand the voltage of the AC power at the place where the illuminated signs will be installed, so that we can provide you with a suitable AC transformer.
  • In order to reduce line loss, we recommend that the length of the wire from the signage to the AC transformer be controlled to 3 meters (about 118 inches), otherwise the LED may not fully emit light due to excessive current loss.
  • The AC transformer will generate heat when working, it is recommended that the AC transformer be placed in a place with good heat dissipation. If the AC transformer cannot dissipate heat smoothly, the service life of the transformer will be seriously affected.
  • The installation of illuminated signs usually requires drilling holes in the wall, so it is recommended that you confirm with the landlord what restrictions there are on drilling holes before purchasing.
  • Some cities, communities and landlords have certain restrictions on the brightness and color temperature of illuminated signs, so it is recommended that you understand these restrictions before purchasing.


  • Can be letters, numbers and logos
  • A variety of light sources can be used, such as neon tubes, fluorescent tubes, and light bulbs, but now more and more LEDs are used
  • Can be used indoors or outdoors


Illuminated signs are a dynamic category of signage that integrates lighting to enhance visibility and impact. These signs come in various forms, including neon signs, LED displays, backlit boards, and more. The defining characteristic of illuminated signs is their use of internal or external lighting sources to illuminate the sign's content, making it visible and readable in varying lighting conditions, especially at night. The lighting can be used to highlight text, graphics, or both, and can range from a subtle glow to a vibrant, eye-catching display. Illuminated signs are made from a range of materials like acrylic, glass, metal, or vinyl, and can be designed in almost any shape and size, offering a high degree of customization to suit different branding needs.

Function and Importance

The primary display effect of illuminated signs is their striking visibility, which captures attention and conveys messages effectively. The brightness and color of the lighting make these signs stand out, especially in low-light environments, drawing the eyes of passersby and potential customers. This visibility is crucial for businesses located in busy commercial areas or those that operate during evening hours. Illuminated signs are versatile in their application, suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings, and can range from elegant lightbox displays to bold neon signs.

Functionally, illuminated signs serve as a powerful marketing and branding tool for businesses. They are instrumental in increasing brand recognition, attracting customer attention, and enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of a business’s premises. In retail settings, illuminated signs can be used to promote sales, highlight offerings, or direct customer traffic. For businesses that operate after dark, such as restaurants and bars, these signs are essential in attracting customers and creating an inviting ambiance. Furthermore, the advancements in LED technology have made illuminated signs more energy-efficient and durable, offering a cost-effective solution with low maintenance needs.

In conclusion, illuminated signs are a crucial element in business signage, combining functionality with aesthetic appeal. They are an effective way to enhance visibility, attract customers, and reinforce brand identity, making them a valuable investment for businesses looking to stand out in a competitive marketplace.

  • The types of illuminated signs actually far exceed the list shown above, but some illuminated signs are difficult to transport, such as neon letters using glass tubes, or marquee letters using light bulbs; some require software matching, such as digital signs; some signs is easy for production, but the freight is high, such like backlit laser cut metal signs, the maker only need to laser cut the metal plate and stick LEDs strip on the back. The production is very simple so the production cost is low, but the weight is very heavy, so the freight usually accounts for a high proportion of the total cost, etc. Although we can also manufacture these signs, we have not listed them here. If you have needs, please contact us.
  • Light box signs are also a very important type of illuminated signs, but because they are usually larger in size and have higher transportation costs, we have not listed them here. If you have needs, please contact us.

Visible Distance and Recognition

When you set up fascia signs for your business, building, store, etc., you definitely want the sign to have very good visual distance and recognition, so that your customers can see your store from a long distance. Although navigation is becoming more and more developed, it still cannot replace the visual recognition effect provided by signage.


  • For signage with thin strokes, their visual distance and recognition will be affected.
  • Bigger signs have better viewing distance and recognition
  • When the environment is relatively dark, the visual distance and recognition of illuminated signs are better than those of non-illuminated signs.

Many factors such as the finish of the sign, the color contrast between the sign and the installation location, the intensity of light at the location of the sign, etc. will affect the viewing distance of the sign. If you need a suggestion, then as a rule of thumb, the viewing distance of a sign is approximately about 120 times the height of the sign. For example, a 1-inch-tall sign can be seen with good recognition from a distance of about 10 feet.


Most of the installation methods of illuminated signs are flush mount, off-wall mount or raceway mount, using stud bolts to install the signs on the wall or just using glue/VHB to fix on the backing wall directly.

  • Flush Mount: This installation method uses stud bolts and is installed separately on the building facade using the mounting holes. The wires used to power the lighting are fished out of the wire holes and mounted behind the wall so light source maintenance can be easily done from behind. Typically each individual illuminated sign part has 2-3 stud bolts and 1 wire, so 3-4 holes need to be drilled in the wall for this. Obviously this installation method will increase the installation workload, but since the wires and stud bolts are buried in the wall, the installed signs will be sleek and sophisticated.
  • Off-wall Mount: The only difference between this installation method and flush mount is that the sign is away from the backing wall, and spacers are used to ensure that each part is at the same distance from the wall.
  • Raceway Mount: In this installation method, the sign is first mounted on a slender metal mounting structure called a “raceway”, usually made of aluminum or stainless steel, and then the raceway and signs are mounted on the wall as a whole. The interior of these mounting structures can be used to house electrical wiring and AC transformers. The advantage of this type of installation method is that it has fewer holes need to be drilled, which can be an important consideration for building owners or landlords, and it also makes it easier to install and renew the signage, while creating an off-wall visual for the sign, so the three-dimensionality will be better. However, due to the existence of the “raceway”, the integrity of the sign and installation wall will be weakened.

To ensure your signage is installed correctly for optimal display and longevity, we recommend hiring professional installers. We will provide a 1:1 layout template to show the hole positions of stud bolts and wires, the installer will drill holes on the wall according to these hole positions. If it is an illuminated sign, the wiring work of the wires needs to be completed. We will provide installation instructions, wiring diagram and necessary installation accessories to help your installers complete the installation correctly and quickly. If you are unable to find the professional installers, please let us know and we will put you in touch with one of our partners to find good installers for you.


Fascia signs are generally installed at a high location and may not be accessible without a lift machine or scaffolding, so routine maintenance is basically difficult. Therefore, it is necessary to purchase high-quality signs and hire professional installers to install them. High-quality signs that are installed correctly can significantly reduce the possibility of sign failure.

In fact, the maintenance of illuminated signs is very simple. Just need to wipe the surface of the sign with a soft cloth moistened with clean fresh water. Never use liquids containing organic cleaning agents to wipe the sign, as such cleaning fluids may cause irreversible damage to the exterior finish of the sign.
