Sourcing trade illuminated signs, advice please?


I’ve been asked to do two illuminated signs in the style of the attached photo

As were relatively new and manly work in just vinyl so far this would be our first box like this.

Would anyone be able to recommend me a supplier to get the return letters cut.

For the light box itself I’m going to use Ashbee as we’ve dealt with them before.

Any advice to a newbie would be greatly appreciated

Thanks guys

Re: Advice (you should use a longer title)

Ashby should be able to make the letters too, as they're push through acrylic, through a fret cut tray.

We have used NCS in the past for a similar post sign.

Re: illuminated signs advice please?

You could try either of the following:

Vinnie at 3D SIGNS -

William Smith -

Source it all from the same supplier, you are just adding to costs and probability of a mistake trying to break the manufacturing up like you say.

Return to Neon, LED, Lighting
