Channel Letter Signs

Channel letters are a classic and time-tested sign solution for those looking to make a professional and attention-demanding first impression with their business sign. They offer multiple methods of illumination which help you stand out day and night.

Channel letter signs are typically installed on the exterior facade of a building. The benefit of channel letters compared to similar sign styles, like three-dimensional signs, is the size and thickness, and the ability to illuminate the sign in creative and eye-catching ways.

There are many ways to go about illumination of these signs – each with a different effect:

  • Backlit channel letters – also called halo lit and reverse channel letters
  • Face lit channel letters – also called a standard illuminated channel letter
  • Front and Back-lit Letters – include both standard illuminated letters with lighting behind the letters

If you’re looking for a highly noticeable, effective sign for your business, channel letters are a fantastic option. We work with you to create the channel letter sign you desire – walking you through the steps of design, illumination, electrical work, and installation. We also work with the local city planner to ensure that the sign produced aligns with the laws in your location, and we handle permitting.

Typical Pricing

Pricing for channel letter signs depends on multiple factors including size, color, material, illumination strategy, location, and installation. Once we have a firm grasp of your sign needs, which usually occurs after we have performed a site survey and contacted the city planner to discuss the sign options for your location, we will be able to send you a rough estimate of the project cost.

Art Requirements

Custom fabricated signage requires special consideration regarding design. We’ll work with you to analyze your situation and goals then support your project with one of our sign design professionals. We can work with your existing brand guidelines and artists to prepare necessary files and formats required for production.

Production Information

Production time for channel letters vary based on the same factors as pricing: size, color, material, illumination strategy, location and installation. Typically, we can provide a timeline for completion once the sign package has been approved by all parties including you (the client), your landlord, and the permitting office.
Material delays, weather, and holidays may impact timelines for these projects. We will try to meet your deadlines, however, sign creation is a complex process and requires time to be done correctly.
