    Recieved a back-lit item today that is all well and good, but on looking
    inside it (the PCB was loose and rattlin, had to re-secure) I found a rather
    curious white light tube .. Dunno if its CCFL or Fluro, just wondering if
    anyone knows a source for similar tubes to these and their driver circuits?
    And even a possible cost? Curious into looking into making my own signs like
    the one I recieved today :)

    Excellent .. Now all i've gotta do is work out how to print onto white
    plexi, and I can make my own signs .. gotta be cheaper than buying these
    things off ebay :)

    You can just inkjet print onto "backlit film" a white translucent film
    designed for light boxes.

    Hmm.. never heard of the stuff, but sounds great :) I'll shop around for
    some :)

    I've never actually bought any for my inkjet, but I know Canon used to offer
    it as part of their range of papers - it's certainly common at graphics
    bureaus, although they use it off rolls for their large format inkjets.
