MAPLE RIDGE, BC — The Value of Channel and Dimensional Letter Signs for Your Business

Home » Industry News » MAPLE RIDGE, BC — The Value of Channel and Dimensional Letter Signs for Your Business

Channel letter signs are a great choice for many business owners who want easily customized three-dimensional signs that pop. And you can decide how you want the sign to look before it’s created for you. Flat letters or letters with lights behind them are both options for these eye-catching signs.

Store owners who want to get people into their storefront often use these signs whether they are selling food, clothing, appliances or other items or services, because they stand out. At Pure Image Signs and Graphics, we create these custom signs by forming letters out of assorted materials, including metal. The letters are equipped with frames, making installation easy and we can take care of this for you.

Sign Design – Channel or Dimensional Letters

 The first decision is whether you want channel or dimensional letters. Exterior dimensional lettering can be installed directly to a building facade whereas channel letters have frames. Dimensional letters are illuminated externally whereas channel letters can be illuminated internally.

Our team of designers will work with you to develop an image of the exact sign you want including specifics like color, size of the letters, whether or not your logo is to be included, and will the sign be backlit, or front lit. We will be specific so that once we are ready to fabricate the sign, you’ll know exactly what to expect.

Advantages of channel letters include:

  • Easy to see from distances day or night.
  • Eco-friendly, low power usage.
  • LEDs are unaffected by cold Vancouver winters.
  • LEDs use low voltage DC power.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Heavy duty.
  • Many design alternatives.

Dimensional letters, unlike channel letters, do not light up, but are still a great option because they are timeless, and easily customized. Typically dimensional letters are made of acrylic or metal materials and are best for businesses that are not open after dark.

Back Lit and Illuminated Signs

If you are looking for a sign that lights up your establishment after dark, then channel letters are perfect because it is easy to install LED lights behind them. Many business owners leave their Channel Signs unlit during the day then turn them on after the sun sets. This makes sense for businesses that are open well into the evening hours like restaurants, pizza stores, and movie theaters.
