We will visit your site, conduct a thorough survey and discuss several options that will meet your needs.

Internal Lighting
The most commonly used system for lighted signs is internal lighting, which today is LED tubes, to distribute light. Other types of lighting include neon or florescent systems, although they are rarely used in today’s signs anymore. Internally lighted signs are often found in businesses, retail stores, healthcare centers and other organizations.

Halo Lighting
Another type of lighting is known as halo lighting. A halo-lit sign places the source of illumination behind the letter, which is usually opaque, but sometimes an illuminated channel letter. Halo-lit signs are not as common as those with internal lighting, but they are truly stunning and unforgettable.

External Lighting
An economical choice is to utilize ground-mounted or pot lighting that overhangs the sign, and this system is known as external Lighting. When used properly, not only can this save money, but it can also create a quaint feel. Add visual effects such as color and external lighting can be used to bring interesting effects to a building or sign.

Solar Lighting
In some cases, electricity is not available so it’s necessary to light your businesses or organizations sign with solar power. Sometimes solar-illumination if chosen for its earth-friendly, energy efficiency. Solar panels, along with batteries can team up with efficient LED lighting systems for a green lighting solution.

Passive Lighting
Florescent material can catch passing light and Phosphorescent material will store light energy and slowly let it go to “glow in the dark”. Some materials can create highly reflective surfaces, such as aluminum, to play with light and create lighted surfaces. Utilizing light in this way is known as passive lighting. Passive lighting can be very beautiful and super-efficient since it uses the light from passing headlights to allow the sign to keep working in the dark.
