Backlit Signage

Backlit signage substrate can be made from flex face material or Acrylic.

Essentially, a backlit sign requires translucent material that allows light to shine through, without loss of colour.

When signing a backlit sign, it should be remembered that the colour of the material will be darker with the light off, than when the light is on.

It is generally accepted that the colour match should be made with the light on, as that is the primary reason why a backlit sign would be employed in a branding situation.

Common materials for backlit signs are;
