Channel Letter SignsChannel Letters – Illuminated And 3D Sign Fabrication Company

Channel letters are custom-made letters that alone are self-contained letters, but when put together create a sign. They are particularly effective because they are illuminated and designed with custom colors that look great in the light. 3D Channel letter signs that are not illuminated are referred to as dimensional letter signs and are a great option for an indoor storefront.

Uses of Channel Letter for Storefront Signs

Channel letter signs are usually used as exterior storefront signs, on the outside of buildings. Channel letter signs are particularly effective at attracting the eye of passersby because they light up, making them one of the many illumination options we have available. They stand out in all weather conditions, including rain, fog, and nighttime.

There are 4 main types of channel letters: front-lit, backlit (or halo-lit), front and back-lit, and open-face lit.

Front & Backlit Channel Letter Signs

Which is the best direction to light your sign-up from? This all depends on how good the visibility is and what type of effect you are trying to create. Backlit channel letter signs give off a nice, warm inviting feeling because of the effect the lighting creates. These reverse channel letter signs (as they are also called) are great for pubs, lounges, theaters, or any business where the lighting inside is dim, so they match your storefront.

If you need optimal lighting for your sign, then open-face neon channel letters or standard channel letters might be a better option. There are also front and back-lit channel letters to consider, which gives you lighting from both sides.

You can create different designs and shapes and even opt for contour channel letters—letters that are all connected as one big sign—which gives them a more uniform look.

Storefront Channel Letters & Lit Shape Signs

Some materials that are frequently used to make channel letter signs include various types of plastic as well as metals, such as aluminum, stainless steel, copper, brass, and more.

LED channel letter signs are often mounted to the exterior walls of businesses or organizations. This can be achieved by directly attaching the channel letter sign to the surface of the wall, or by mounting the sign on a raceway or wireway. A raceway is a type of mounting structure that also houses the electrical components of the sign. A wireway is similar but generally contains only wiring, so wireways are thinner than raceways.

Benefits of Channel Letters For Business

Like any creative and well-built sign, channel letters are good at attracting attention. They are big and bold, and the LED lights make them shine in the dark. As long as you place them in a spot for optimal visibility, these letters are almost guaranteed to pull customers in.
