SpellBrite signage was born from the technology developed by iLight, a pioneer and leader in innovative LED illumination solutions. Founded in 1999, the company’s award-winning legacy of exceptional lighting products known for high brightness and smooth even glow was the seed that became Optiva Signs, maker of SpellBrite. iLight continues to develop and deliver innovative LED illumination solutions that transform, excite, and energize architectural environments worldwide. The company currently holds more than 100 patents in the U.S. and international markets. SpellBrite was introduced in 2012. Retailers and restaurant owners quickly grasped the benefits of the signage system; SpellBrite was named a Retailer Top Pick at the 2012 NACS trade show and Best New Product at the 2012 ISA International Sign Expo. In 2014, Optiva was named one of the winners of the 12th Annual Chicago Innovation Awards for its unique SpellBrite LED signage system.
