My Cinema Lightbox – Vintage Edition


Don’t forget the signage! If you are looking for something that can stand the test of time and be reused in the years ahead, consider something like a lightbox or a letter board. That way you can swap out the letters for different themes and different kiddos instead of purchasing a new sign every year.
