Church Podium Backlit Sign

Custom Church Podium Backlit Sign

Our team was recently commissioned to make an internal lighted sign for a church podium. We have a wide variety of commercial sign materials in stock, and welcomed the opportunity to mix-n-match for a unique piece of art.

Here is the first layer of our our design, a laser cut blue acrylic emblem:

And our next level was applied to the top of the blue acrylic. We carry ACM (aluminum composite material) which is basically two thin sheets of aluminum sandwiched over a solid PVC (plastic) core. ACM comes in a wide variety of finishes. For this project, we chose brushed gold:

The next level is tricky. We digitally printed the graphics on clear #M laminate, then applied to white acrylic. The shape was cut to match the first two layers, which will knock out the lighting (just wait):

We then produced an ACM backboard in brushed silver aluminum. This gave the sign something the assemble can mount to the podium, and will reflect light from the LED lighting we integrated in the lightbox cabinet:

While we can’t show you how we make the lightbox cabinet as it is proprietary, it’s basically a custom shaped box that holds low-voltage lighting. Here is a picture of the completed assembly as we tested it before shipping to the customer:

What do you call a sign at the entrance to a neighborhood?

What do you call a sign at the entrance to a neighborhood? An entrance sign monument. It might seem simple, but they are not!

Entrance sign monuments were traditionally made in brick and mortar, with wood frames and vinyl graphics. Wood is a product of nature, and expands & contracts with the seasons. This affects ANY priming and paint finishes – regardless of paint quality options. Our products avoid all these issues.

Brick and mortar causes another issue. Did you know if a vehicle hits your community entrance sign monument, and any passengers/driver gets hurts, your community is liable for your monument being in the way? That’s terrible!

We have created a timeless solution that meets if not exceeds all Federal and Local Municipality regulations – our break-away system.

Our products are a foam core with acrylic resin coating, just like the exterior of any Walmart, CVS, Wallgreens, etc. The difference is we have much tighter tollerances, meaning we can emboss text, graphics, and even produce any color scheme you like on any shape and size sign monument.

Here is an example of a community entrance sign with our break-away system. The signs are in faux river stone with faux wood beams:
