    See Your Name In Lights, Just Like On Old Movie Marquees.

    The Marquee Light Box I bought on Amazon is no longer listed, however this one looks like mine. It comes with many more letters and symbols, a total of 175, which is 100 more than mine! (Mine only included letters and didn't have any symbols or punctuation.) It's only about $5 more than I paid, but it can be USB powered or AC powered with a plug to AC power which is not included, but most gadget folks have. Here's what Amazon says about the  

    LEORX Cinematic Light Box LED Lightbox: Here's a neat way to display a message or other text with the old-fashioned look of a movie marquee. Black letters that are set up in tracks on a white box lit from within. Totally readable in the brightest light or in total darkness. The uses are as limitless as your imagination. Say "Happy Birthday" to a family member, or "I love you" to your spouse. Put a sign in your window so arriving guests will know they've found the right house. These are just a few of the endless uses. With the bold black letters against the lighted white background, this sign has a striking effect. the size is about 22x30cm -- the size of an A4 sheet of paper. (That's roughly 1/2" bigger all around than a piece of 8.5 X 11" paper.) It comes with 175 characters, including letters, numerals, punctuation, and many symbols such as hearts, stars, smiley faces, and common typographical symbols such as #, &, etc.

    From the Giz Wiz: Had I seen this first, I would have bought this one, rather than the one I got. It's $22.99 (as of 3/16/17) and Amazon Prime, so free shipping for Prime members:
