Picking Out Your Stone

We’ve worked with a lots of different surfaces in the past, and can help you determine what works best with Light Tape®. The more translucent the better. When considering Light Tape® over a traditional LED backlight, a more translucent surface works best since the light doesn’t have to be diffused. Because we don’t have individual bulbs, your surface will be evenly lit. If your surface is very opaque with minimal light penetrating, an LED solution might work best for you.

Here’s some great surfaces we know work well with Light Tape® because they’re the most popular:

Cristallo Quartzite

Honey Onyx

Blue Agate

Stained Glass
