Which printed graphics are suitable for outdoor lightboxes?
The ideal material used for external grade lightboxes is a special type of backlit poster media, sometimes known as Duratrans or backlit transparencies. The backlit media is translucent before your artwork is printed to it. We use high-quality 100% polyester and HD printing technology to print your artwork onto the surface, creating a vibrant printed image. The backlit media ensures the artwork colour is displayed vibrantly and once illuminated with the lightbox LEDs, your artwork will burst into life.
Can an outdoor lightbox be recessed?
Yes, we can custom make your lightbox to fit perfectly into an existing recess. We can also exit the lightbox power exactly where you need it to connect to the electrics. We create custom lightboxes using various different depth profiles.
How do I change my external lightbox graphic?
Some of our outdoor lightboxes use a simple snap frame style system. This is where the surrounding lightbox frame has a mitred finish in each corner. The frame surround is pulled open and the existing lightbox graphic is swapped easily for a new print. Other lightboxes use hidden clips to hold the lightbox in place as well as a frame that is secured using grub screws and an Allen key. We also make external lightboxes using door openings with gas struts. This is particularly helpful if your outdoor lightbox is especially large. The way in which the graphic is changed over differs between the lightbox designs.
