Outdoor Lightboxes

Stand out with weather-resistant lightbox signs for all sorts of exterior applications.

Outdoor lightboxes from Signs By Tomorrow® Charlotte South are weather-resistant cabinets that have a transparent panel in the front that displays your logo or promotional message. Your graphics are reproduced on translucent film and backlighted by fluorescent or LED illumination. When you flip the switch, your graphics come to life in brilliant, vivid color — making these electric signs perfect advertising and branding solutions for stores, restaurants, offices and more!

These illuminated signs are highly versatile. Outdoor lightboxes let you swing open the clear front panel to update your graphics without replacing the entire sign. Outdoor lightboxes were pioneered by movie theaters that needed to switch out film posters frequently and capture the attention of passersby. Now, many businesses are benefiting from these attractive and affordable signage solutions!

Use outdoor lightboxes as “stand-alone” signage solutions. Or, have us add them to your monument signs or pylon signs. Whatever your choice, you can rely on us for the custom designs you’ll display! We’ll print your logo, graphics or promotional message on translucent vinyl film for insertion into the lightbox.

At Signs By Tomorrow Charlotte South, select from off-the-shelf backlit signs in standard sizes. Or, choose custom light-up signs in sizes, colors and finishes that meet your specifications. Single-sided or double-sided outdoor lightboxes are available, including those with dimmer switches enabling controllable backlighting for your graphics.

Questions & Answers

How do outdoor lightboxes work?

Outdoor lightboxes feature a clear glass or acrylic front panel behind which you mount your promotional message or logo in a translucent vinyl film.

Switch on the power and your graphic or advertising lights up!
