You can make a glowing sign by using a Glow Inc Sac on an existing sign that already has a message written on it.

Making a Glowing Sign

Signs have been in Minecraft since the dawn of time. A simple yet necessary tool in the grande world of building & adventure.

However they never received much love until the most recent 1.17 Caves & Cliffs update.

Now you can add a Glow Ink Sac to any basic sign with text on it. This will make the text glow brightly & stand out from a regular sign’s text.

Here are the steps to make a glowing sign:

  • Acquire a Glow Ink Sac from a Glow Squid
  • Build & place a sign then add your message to it
  • Use any color dye on the sign to change the color of the text
  • Finally add the Glow Inc Sac to the dyed sign text to turn the sign into a glowing sign!

Tip: You must add any color dye to the sign to make it glow. You can’t use the Glow Ink Sac on the sign without placing the dye first.

Benefits of a Glowing Sign

While this isn’t a huge groundbreaking update for Minecraft, it is definitely a helpful addition to boring old signs.

Glow signs can be seen at night & from a further distance than regular black text signs with no Glow Ink Sac.

They are still hard to read the further you get away but you can use the light that they give off to locate them from a distance at night.

Other than that they just look cool & i’m sure someone will come up with a super creative way to use them inside & outside of their builds.
