Channel (Illuminated) Letters
Visible by day, visual by night, channel letters provide great depth and precision to any company’s signage.Channel letters are also known as “internally illuminated letters”. This description says it all in that each letter is generally lit from the inside with light shining through the plastic sign face or out the back of the channel letters (called a halo-lit, or reverse channel letter). This is the case for most of our sign letters we offer, channel letters are custom made from metal, plastic and are commonly illuminated with LED lighting (very efficient) cost effective or neon tubing.
Channel letters may be installed directly to the building facia (each letter is mounted individually) or on a raceway. A raceway is a pre-fabricated metal box that runs the length of the channel letter sign. The raceway is then mounted directly to the building fascia. Your type of installation may be determined by the city ordinance or building owner’s sign criteria. We can help you get the results you’re looking for.
Our channel letters are manufactured to the strictest standards and meet all the necessary local electrical and building codes.
Standard Letters are 3-dimensional letters covered with thin or thick plastic and illuminated from the inside or inside.
Exposed Neon Letters resemble Standard Letters but there is no plastic covering, allowing the neon to show through the front or backside.
Backlit Letters have a solid opaque front and are illuminated from behind the letter, causing a “negative space” when illuminated at night.
