Custom Lithophanes

See custom lithophanes based upon photos in this 30 second video.


Aren’t lithophanes amazing? We make beautiful custom lithophanes for Evergraph.

Our most popular item is the custom lithophane nightlight. You can see many examples of our nightlights in the Lithophane Night Lights. Or, you can visit our Etsy shop at etsy.com/shop/evergraph

We also designed the LED light panels used to illuminate them. There are four great things about our light panels:

  • the LED lights do not get hot,
  • the LED lights last an incredibly long time (about 5 years if you leave them on all the time),
  • the panel disperses the light evenly so you don’t have dark and bright spots on your lithophane,
  • the panels are thin which makes them easy to frame!

Perhaps you have a special photo you would like to have made into a custom lithophane? Please visit our website at Evergraphs.com to view our gallery website. We have some great testimonials!

Note: We have a new website with a larger selection of Lithophane Light Panels! You may continue to shop here or feel free to visit our new website at https://evergraphs.com/lithophane-light-panels/. We will continue to provide the same quality of light panel and service regardless of which website you use.

Our Small Lithophane Light Panel measures 5 1/4 inches by 6 15/16 inches. With a slim profile of just under 7 mm it is perfect to backlight lithophanes measuring 5 inches by 7 inches.

For the best fit, we recommend using a matte around the lithophane and light panel and framing with an 8″ x 10″ frame. Or, create your own custom frame if you would rather not use a matte. A frame of sufficient depth is required.

Every light panel comes with a 6 ft cord with an on/off rocker style switch. Our LED light panels do not get hot and use only a very small amount of electricity. We expect our light panels to last more than 5 years if left on 24/7!

How to light a lithophane


There are two challenges with creating framed custom lithophanes after the carving process is complete.

  • lighting
  • framing

The challenge with lighting is usually brightness and evenly distributed lighting. Unfortunately, efforts to use Christmas lights, incandescent bulbs, or LED light strips result in uneven or dim illumination. Our light panels provide a bright and even white light.
The challenge with framing is usually related to the depth of the frame. Traditional frames don’t typically have enough depth to hold all of the “equipment” associated with those types of lighting.

Framing your lithophane

Typically, a lithophane is approximately 1/4 inch thick. Combined with our light panel, the total thickness is just 1/2 inch. If you want a ready made frame, then we recommend the Blick Essentials Wood Gallery Frames combined with a framing matte.

Where else can I get one of these lithophane light panels?

2014-04-26T22:48:36+00:00

Necessity is the mother of invention. We searched high and low for a method of back lighting our own lithophanes–with no luck. We finally designed our own version and found a manufacturer willing to work from our design. You will certainly find other LED light panels being used commercially, but none of them are designed for lighting lithophanes.
