Channel letter signs are a superior signage choice for many applications. Each set of channel letters has an individual structure and separate LED illumination, resulting in a professional and highly visible signage presentation. Below are examples of face lit channel letters.
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 client’s needs.
Channel letter signs project a very professional image. That is why many building and shopping center owners insist on channel letter signs for their developments.
Channel letter signs can be an effective component of a national brand building program.
Channel letters have a substantial amount of “stopping power.” If your prospect’s business is located on a busy street, how many more impressions will they receive from using channel letter signs?
Exposed neon channel letters
These are standard channel letters, but the neon is covered with a clear acrylic face to keep birds from making a nest as well as to protect the exposed neon from outside elements, i.e., weather, etc. This allows for the exposed neon to be seen, as well as the inside of the channel letter interior itself to add to the dimensional look.
Back (Halo)-lit or reverse-lit letters
In this letter type, the face of the letter is constructed from aluminum and the lighting is directed to the back. This light floods the wall that the letter is mounted to and creates a negative space at night. Letters in this style are also called halo letters. It is usually the most expensive form to manufacture. LEDs are installed to the inside back of the can, and the back is often fitted with a clear or translucent plastic back to diffuse the light and protect the lighting elements and wiring. The letters are typically mounted 1-1/2″ from the wall so they are set off from the façade of the building. The inside of the can is often painted white to reflect light. The effect of the halo lighting allows for a variety of creative effects depending on the color, sheen, and texture of the building surface. Light-colored building surfaces with a matte finish produce the best halo effect; dark mirror-like finishes the worst.
