Cabinet Signs – In Depth

in Sep 28, 2023

This type of sign is a traditional box type sign made up of a face and back or two faces, with designs ranging from simple plastic faces to metal faces with push-thru letters. They are often called lightboxes and can be internally illuminated, externally illuminated or non-illuminated, and are good for both interior and exterior applications.

Typically, when people think of a cabinet, they think of a box shape. But we manufacture custom shapes in a range of sizes. If you want more information on our cabinet signs check out pages 15 – 17 in our virtual catalog or request a catalog here.
