Light Boxes with Push Through Style illumination Effect

The intricate artistry of crafting push-through lightbox signs, meticulous considerations, where every detail plays a pivotal role in the creation of these illuminated marvels.

These types of light boxes are known as a step up from a conventional standard light boxes signage because of the stand out 3d graphic letters and logos appear to have a “pushed through” effect on the face panel of the illuminated sign creation.

Boldly the “push through” design in acrylic material, defines this evolution contributing to its identity. The magic lies in the translucency of cut-out areas, allowing light to dance through, giving birth to a captivating sign image. These light-boxes can be constructed in various ways, using different styles of fabricated metal construction techniques, available in different sizes and finishes. To add the final brushstroke to our masterpiece, we carefully select an acrylic that snugly fits into the raised sections, bringing a three-dimensional aspect to our illuminated creations. The result is not just a sign; it's an artful manifestation of light and shadows.

The face panel is designed to block light except for translucent cutout areas where logos and letters are placed. The light is blocked by the solid metal face panels and the light only travels through the negative (cut-out) areas of the face panels. The process is referred to as intra-cut lettering. The illumination happens through the cut-out logo and lettering graphic areas, which are translucent allowing the light and illumination to create the sign image.

The visual illuminated graphic finish is further enhanced by raised solid translucent opal acrylic that fits into the missing cut-out sections to form the three dimensional look, creating a protruding illuminated sign result. The construction style, if you look very carefully, creates a shadow line effect at the edges of letters and logos, adding depth and dimension to the luminous characters.    

When colour matching is imperative, if the cut out letters or logos are required to match branding, we achieve this by either using standard coloured acrylic sheets but do have a limited colour range, otherwise for a more accurate colour match we use self adhesive translucent vinyls which are applied onto the acrylic cut letters to create the desired colour.

The enchanting possibilities and another choice can be to have solid flat metal letters adhered onto the raised acrylic faces to entirely block out the lighting from the front of the faces to only allow a halo illumination lighting glow out of the sides. A halo of illumination emerges, elevating our creation to a more subtle lighting effect.

An important part of the final sign which needs to be considered is the aesthetic appeal of how the metal face panels are attached that no fixing is exposed. A mandate that shapes the visual elegance of our creations. The box must be designed in a way that it can be easily opened for maintenance, cleaning and to replace the light source when necessary. A very tidy illuminated signage creation is our single single sided round lightbox signs.
