Where do you place the LEDs to get best "performance"?

I made a plexisign a while ago and I placed two LEDs in the lower corners and aimed upwards. I think the sign didn't light up as much as I wanted to. Maybe it was because I carved to deep or I had to dark LEDs but I still wonder if it is the position of the light that makes it all wrong.

Someone who knows?

a) More leds to get higher brightness and more even light.
b) Brighter leds

Placement doesn't matter that much if you have bright enough leds. Two leds for a sign also sounds quite low amount so maybe you should get few more. hmm... about that placement, there is one tip. You should try to get the leds diagonal to those carved line. If the light and lines go in parallel the lines will not be lit.
