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.
