Channel Letter Signs

Channel letter signs are the most popular and highly effective choice for storefronts and commercial buildings of all kinds. Available in different styles, colors and finishes, channel letters offer versatility and durability that makes them a perfect match for today’s buildings.

1 - Front Lit Channel Letter

The most common type of channel letter. Available in a variety of colors, sizes, finishes this letter option has an acrylic face which is mounted to an aluminum or steel return using a trim cap edge. The letters are internally illuminated with neon or LED lights.

The sign is either mounted directly to the building facade or on raceway (rectangular metal box). Landlords tend to prefer the raceway, since it requires less holes to install the sign; however, direct mounting will result in fewer shadows to the sign. A raceway may be required in cases where the building facade is constructed in a way that makes access to electrical hookup challenging.

2 - Back Lit Channel Letter

Reverse channel letters or Back lit channel letters are not mounted flush to the wall; instead they sit approximately 1.5 inches away. This creates a “backlit” effect with soft glowing light appearing around each letter. These are manufactured with aluminum or steel faces and both neon and LED lighting can be used in this option. Reverse channel letters gives a tasteful, sophisticated look.

3 - Combination Channel Letter

This choice has both front and rear illumination, successfully combining the styles of a regular and a reverse channel letter. The resulting sign product is illuminated at the front of the letter (front lit channel letter) and has a backlit effect (reverse channel letter). The result is a very striking effect.

4 - Open Face Channel Letter

Open face channel letters are made in the same way as front lit channel letters, with the exception that the acrylic face are not used. Instead the letter uses neon or led bulbs to light of the sign. As the name implies, this style has an “open face” that leaves the neon lighting or bulbs exposed within each letter making up the sign.
