I wish I would have found them first. I looked through several others that were not as user friendly and also more expensive. Next time I won’t waste time looking around.

Sign Boards - Acrylic and LED Safety Sign BoardsFRONT LIT CHANNEL LETTERS

Front lit are the most common channel letter type. As the name implies, these signs emit illumination only from the front (or face) of the letters. They are often used in both shopping malls and outdoor plazas.

Front lit channel letters can be either raceway or flush mounted. Signs Market can produce this letter type in many different font and color combinations.

Front lit are also sometimes called “standard” channel letters. Please, contact us for a prompt wholesale channel letter quotation.

For Front Lit channel letter signage, Signs Market offers:

  • Any font style
  • 5″ prefinished aluminum returns
  • Aluminum backs
  • Acrylic faces
  • 1″ Trim cap
  • LED illumination
  • U.L. Listed

CHANNEL LETTER VINYL COLOR CHART

The usage of vinyl can help to give your channel letters a vibrant and eye-catching appearance. This optional translucent material is applied directly to the acrylic sign face. Vinyl is an easy-to-use material to further customize and enhance the appearance of a set of wholesale channel letters.

A specialized vinyl type (perforated) may also be used to give your letters one face color appearance during the day, and then a different color when illuminated at night. For example, your sign could have a black letter face appearance during the day, and then a white or red appearance at night. Other day/night color combinations are also available.

Overall, vinyl provides an additional set of color and appearance customizing options for your channel letters at a nominal additional cost. Please contact us with questions.

OPEN FACE CHANNEL LETTERS

Open Face channel letters are an excellent choice for businesses that need a highly conspicuous night signage presence, such as restaurants, nightclubs and bars.

Neon is the illumination source, and the neon is actually exposed (instead of being encased behind colored acrylic.) The face of this letter is typically open, but an optional clear acrylic face is also available.

An open face letter return (side) is 3” instead of the usual 5”. This gives the neon illumination full exposure and ensures the sign can be easily read.

FRONT/BACK LIT CHANNEL LETTERS

Front/Back Lit channel letters are an excellent choice for a striking and eye-catching signage presence. As the name implies, these letters emit illumination both from the letter front (face) and back.

Just as with standard reverse channel letters, front/back lit letters have a clear poly-carbonate back to prevent animals from nesting inside the letter.

Well designed Front/Back lit letters have a dramatic effect. The combination of both front and rear illumination creates a vibrant and attention-generating channel letter sign.

LED CHANNEL LETTERS

Channel letters are typically illuminated with either neon or LED (light emitting diodes). Neon was previously the primary illumination media, but in the past few years LED has become the main lighting source for channel letter signage.

When you hear the term “LED channel letters”, it typically means a standard letter set which is illuminated with LED modules instead of neon.

The reason for that change is LED illumination offers several compelling advantages. For example, LED is more resistant to shock and vibration which is helpful during both channel letter delivery and installation.

Second, LED is more energy efficient. It consumes less power than neon illumination so your client’s utility bill will be lower.

Third, LED is a more environmentally friendly product. Neon tubing contains mercury. Some cities and municipalities are more likely to issue a permit for LED channel letters due to this greater degree of “greenness.”

CHANNEL LETTER LOGO BOXES

Signs Market can also produce a logo box as a part of your channel letter set.

A logo box is an optional channel letter sign element, and is basically a contoured channel letter.

A logo box face may include either a colored vinyl application or a digital print. Digital prints offer a complete customization of the logo box appearance.

CHANNEL LETTER SIGNS

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 letter signs can be produced in almost any font, color or size. This flexibility permits channel letter specifications to be matched exactly to our client’s 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.

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.

Many national chains also use channel letters. Channel letter signs can be an effective component of a national brand building program. Many national grocery chains, restaurants and retailers exclusively use this type of signage.

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? Thousands. Please, contact us for a fast wholesale channel letters quotation.

CHANNEL LETTERS

Channel letters are a type of electrical signage. The fundamental difference between channel letters and other signage types is that channel letters are dimensional. Each letter is individually formed, and has its own separate enclosure.

Channel letters get their name from the internal “channel” contained by each letter. The internal channel is also where the letter illumination is housed. The side of a formed channel letter is called the “return”, and the return forms the letter enclosure (channel.)

The letter return can be painted a custom color per the client’s wishes. This can be either a logo color or an attractive contrast to the face color.

The face of a channel letter is typically constructed of acrylic. Acrylic is a translucent material that comes in many different color options, and permits great flexibility in the finished letter appearance.

The channel is typically constructed of aluminum, but steel is also used. Aluminum is a viable option, as it is both lightweight and does not rust.

Channel letters come in 4 basic configurations:

  • Front Lit
  • Reverse Lit (or “halo lit”)
  • Front/Back Lit
  • Open Face

Front lit channel letters are the most common letter configuration. As the title implies, this letter type emits illumination only from the front (face) of the letters. Front lit letters are also called “standard” channel letters.

Reverse lit channel letters emit illumination only from the back of the letters. Reverse lit channel letters have sealed faces, and the illumination forms behind these letters. Reverse channel letters are also called “halo lit” letters.

Front/back lit letters produce illumination from both the front and back of the letters, giving them a dynamic and dramatic appearance.

Last, open face channel letters are less common but can have a spectacular impact in the right location. Open Face letters are open only at the face, and have a thinner return (3” instead of the usual 5”.)

Channel letters are typically illuminated with LED, but neon is still utilized periodically. Either can be a viable illumination option, depending on the circumstances. Please see our Illumination page for further information.

Non-illuminated channel letters are also sometimes specified. They are less common than illuminated letters but are perfectly appropriate for certain applications.

Channel letters are typically mounted in one of two ways: flush mount or raceway. Flush mounted channel letters are affixed directly to the substrate of the building. 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.

Overall, channel letters can be an attractive and compelling form of electrical signage. Contact us for a fast wholesale channel letter quotation.
