Abstract

Signs including electroluminescent lamps are described. In accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, electroluminescent lamps are coupled to a sign by first forming a rear electrode on a front surface of the sign. After forming the rear electrode on the sign, a phosphor layer is screen printed over the rear electrode. A conductor layer is then screen printed to the phosphor layer to form an EL lamp.
