Signs do not necessarily have to be internally illuminated to attract attention. Many businesses choose to use external lighting such as spot lights or gooseneck lamps to illuminated their signs. Signs Unlimited just completed the installation of such a sign at Old Town Los Gatos for Anthropologie. This is a great example of how a sign can remain elegant with external lighting. These letters were stud-mounted with custom painted stand-offs (or spacers) to give them more depth.
