Channel Letter Signs are made up of individual, three-dimensional letters. The color of the face, trim cap and return are fully customizable. Channel letters can be directly attached to a building or more commonly to a raceway that generally holds the electrical wiring.
Channel letters can be illuminated or non-illuminated. Historically they have been lit with neon tubing, but most often they are now built with energy efficient, long lasting LED modules. Channel letters can also be back lit, which throws the light behind the letters creating a halo or shadow effect.
More About Channel Letters
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.
