What makes a channel letter sign different from any other sign? Channel letters jut out from the wall because they are three-dimensional.

Each letter is usually made from heavy-duty, rust-proof aluminum. Letter depth varies depending on design and size of the sign. And each letter or number is covered with translucent acrylic.

Types of Channel Letter Signage
Typically there are four variations of channel letter signage.
1. Front-Lit Channel Letters – the light shines through the front of the letters making the sign visible 24/7.
2. Halo-Lit Channel Letters – here, the sign’s internal lighting comes from the back of the letters to create a halo effect surrounding the mounted letters.
3. Open Face Channel Letters – these signs are similar to front-lit signs except that the acrylic face is clear so it appears that the face is open.
4. Front and Reverse Lit Channel Letters – combines halo-lit and front-lit letter styles creating the great illumination.

Durable and Energy Efficient
Aluminum is lightweight and durable so it stands up well to rain, sun, sleet, snow, and high winds. These signs require less maintenance and repair than neon signs.
