Light boxes are most commonly used in retail displays. With good reason, they catch your eye and make the image look fantastic when lit up from behind. This look doesn’t have to be just for your local store. Why not build one for your home? You can use your own picture, and create some soft mood lighting to boot.
The people at ReadyMade show you how to easily build your own 2′x2′ light box. Our suggestion is to use nails that are easy to remove so you can swap out the print whenever you would like. Using Duratrans backlit media and printing direct to Plexiglas would also work great for this project.
