Channel Letters

Visible by day and luminous at night, channel letters provide great depth and precision to your company's sign.

Channel letters are also known as "internally illuminated letters." Each letter is generally lit from the inside with light shining through the plastic sign face or out the back of the letter (called a halo-lit, or reverse channel letter). As is the case for most of the signs we offer, channel letters are custom made from metal and plastic and are commonly illuminated with LED lighting (very efficient) or neon tubing.

Channel letters may be installed directly to the building fascia with each letter 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. Whatever the requirements, 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.

Types of Channel Letters

  • Standard Letters

    Standard letters are 3-D letters covered with thick plastic and illuminated from the inside, most commonly with LED lighting (by modern standards).

  • Exposed Neon

    These resemble standard letters but there is no plastic covering, allowing the neon to show. This provides an attractive "retro" appearance.

  • Backlit

    These have a metal or solid opaque front and are illuminated from behind the letter, causing a "negative space" or "halo" effect when illuminated at night.
