Channel Letters – Face Lit

Face lit channel letters have acrylic faces, which can be in a variety of colors, as well as white acrylic with a translucent vinyl overlay for an even greater selection of colors. The faces are mounted to the aluminum or metal return using a trim cap edge. The letters can be internally illuminated using an LED lighting system. They can be mounted either directly to the wall individually or mounted on a metal rectangular box called a raceway. The individual mounting looks much better than the raceway mounting because the raceways tend to be distracting and create unwanted shadows. However, many landlords prefer the raceway style of mounting because it requires fewer holes made on the building facade. Raceways are also required in case of limited access in the building facade for the electrical hook-up of the sign.

Channel Letters – Face Lit & Halo Lit

Both face lit and halo lit channel letters are typically crafted from durable materials like aluminum, and the lighting can be achieved using energy-efficient LEDs. The choice between these two types depends on your branding, aesthetic preferences, and the message you want to convey. Whichever you choose, channel letters are a powerful way to enhance your business’s visibility and make a memorable impression on passersby.

Channel Letters – Reverse Halo Lit

This type of lettering is designed to be mounted to the wall approximately 1.5″ off the wall and create a halo-lit effect at night with a soft glow around the letters. The illumination can be created with LED lighting. The illumination is not as bright as standard channel lettering, but it creates a very soft, elegant, and modern look for your business.

Channel Letters – Edge Lit

Edge lit channel letters are a contemporary and captivating variant of traditional channel letter signage. In this innovative design, the illumination source is located on the letter’s edges, creating a striking and visually appealing effect. These letters are characterized by their sleek and minimalist appearance.

Channel Letters – Trimless

Trimless channel letters are a contemporary and captivating variant of traditional channel letter signage.  These letters are characterized by their sleek and minimalist appearance.

Channel Letters – Open Face

Channel letters – open face are the same letters as face lit channel letters except that the metal return is left open, no acrylic face or trim cap is used, and the inside neon lighting or incandescent light bulb is exposed. These are classic, American style letters.
