Salt Lake City businesses choose backlit cabinet signs when they really want to get noticed by potential customers passing by.

Although you can choose either indoor or outdoor illuminated cabinet signs, you’ve probably seen this design most often in the outdoors. Strong backlighting ensures readability and allows you to choose almost any design you prefer for the signage face.

The M Graphics & Signs team specializes in designing, fabricating and installing electric signs, including backlit cabinet signs, for customers in the Salt Lake City area and throughout northern Utah.

What Is a Backlit Cabinet Sign or Light Cabinet?

The basis of this design is a sturdy cabinet or lightbox – typically made of aluminum – that contains an illumination source.

On the cabinet’s face goes a layer of acrylic, polycarbonate or another flexible, long-lasting material, onto which is printed your design of choice. When illuminated, the light source projects from behind to create a professional and noticeable sign that your prospects will be sure to notice, day or night.

Available in one- and two-sided configurations, you can choose to have your sign mounted directly on the face of your building or on a dedicated pole or monument structure, so that it’s visible from two directions.


The Benefits of Using Illuminated Cabinet Signs for Your Business

The most obvious benefit of adding a backlit cabinet sign to your business location is how much it will increase your visibility. These designs are durable and long-lasting but also highly cost-effective. They require little to no maintenance and they will look great for years or decades.

You also have many options for colors, materials, shapes and illumination sources. We typically use LED illumination. However, if you prefer another light source – or if your city sign ordinances do not permit LEDs – we have many practical alternatives to offer.

What we love most about this type of lighted signage is its flexibility. You can quickly and affordably change the sign’s face whenever you want to update the design or modify your message. Simply give us a call and we can have your updated graphics in a matter of days.

Designing Your Light Cabinet Sign

If you’re ready to increase the visibility of your business, it’s time to think about your sign’s design.

For exterior designs, this means identifying the signage guidelines of your location, which typically address the size, height, illumination, brightness and location. The M Graphics team is well-versed in Utah’s local building codes and signage requirements. We will ensure that your design meets those requirements and obtain all necessary permits on your behalf.

We will work closely with you to create a design that reflects your brand, using your company logo, colors, fonts or whatever graphic elements you prefer. This ensures that your lighted sign clearly and accurately communicates your message in the most cost-effective manner.

Our one-stop business signage services include design, permitting, fabrication and installation. We have almost 20 years of experience in northern Utah, and you won’t find better customer service anywhere.
