Do you mean you want to have visible light beam in the shape of the number radiating out?

no. just to see the number ‘lit up’ so when i look at the lamp it is clearly lit.

You could just put a plane behind the cutout numbers and just increase the emit value of its material or even fill in the numbers and give them this material.

easy when you know how!
