Channel Letters

Channel letter signs are a superior signage choice for many applications. Each set of channel letters has an individual structure and separate illumination, resulting in a professional and highly visible signage presentation. Channel letters are one of the most common type of signs used on building exteriors. Imagine the name of your company “in lights” featuring your preferred colors, fonts and other features. The flexibility and affordability is what makes these signs a great choice for many customers. Channel letter signs can be produced in almost any font, color or size. This flexibility permits channel letter specifications to be matched exactly to your specific needs.

LED channel letters are the most common letter type now, as the usage of neon illumination has decreased. LED channel letter illumination has improved dramatically in the past few years, and in many cases can equal or outperform neon illumination.

There are many lighting options for channel letter signs including:

  • Front Lit – The “normal” style of channel letters offers a translucent front and solid back. The light shines through the letters themselves.

  • Back Lit (Reverse or "halo" lit) – With this style light, the front of the letters are solid and the back is open, allowing light to escape and form a halo-like effect.

  • Open Face – Open Face letters are open only at the face, and have a thinner return (3” instead of the usual 5”.) The same letters that are used in other styles are utilized here, but there is simply no “face” on the sign. This provides an old-fashioned neon look, that is quite unique.
  • Unlit – If your company is only open during daylight hours, it may not be necessary to have a lit sign. Consider this option only if you do not want customers to see your signage at night.

Mounting options include:

  • Raceway - Raceway mounted channel letters are affixed to a rectangular structure called a "raceway", and the raceway is then mounted to the surface of the building. Raceway mounting has the advantage of fewer mounting holes. and ease of installation and servicing.
  • Flush Mount – Flush mounted channel letters are affixed directly to the substrate of the building.
  • Sign Cabinet Face – Allows for unique designs.
