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:

Community Message Boards

Community Message Boards:

Updating your existing community message on the way in, AND on the way out. This is finally a simple process. Replace your outdated existing entrance (or exit) sign easily. If you have an outdated changeable letter sign – the ones like in older school systems with individual letters you manually arrange, you can now replace with an affordable electronic LED sign panel!

Our electronic sign panels use LED technology. These are the lighted signs like you see at your local schools, businesses, and your local churches.

This technology used to be out of budget for most, but now is an affordable solution!

We offer commercial-grade LED message boards that are programmed by a simple key-pad (much like your TV remote). They have the options for multiple lines of text, different fonts, animated scrolling effects – even full-color motion video on our high-end models!

This community had an outdated manual change letter system:

We made a custom tri-color (Red Green & Yellow) electronic message board with a custom aluminum mounting brackets system to go right on top of the existing brick wall.

They have the option of scrolling messages to notify the community of upcoming events – not to mention starting the homeowners’ day by simply says “have a nice day!” as they exit in the morning. Keep in mind, Red Green & Yellow can be used in a variety of color combinations! Check out this animated American Flag screen as part of their daily program loop:
