Back Lighting for LithoPhane

Postby olf20 » Thu Jul 20, 2017 10:48 pm

I ordered these for some litho's I'm doing and was
pleasantly surprised when I got these today and hooked
them up.

Bob,
Just looking at the eBay listing - aren't they awfully bright?
Just thinking compared to using the 5050 led strips for edge lite signs.
I have never made a litho, so I am asking for reference as much as anything.
It certainly reduces parts required any prep work.
Thanks,
Scott

They are bright. But they can run on 9VDC.
I like a bright light behind my litho's. With these I can
tweek my picture so its a little thicker in the light area's.
I guess simplicity is the thing I like about them, and of course
the price.
