    Which Channel Letter Sign Variety is Right for Your Business?

    Channel letters are plastic and metal letters. We design and custom make channel letters to help businesses advertise their brand or services. People usually opt to have these letters fixed to the exterior of commercial buildings. Some people also use them as three-dimensional decorations inside commercial buildings and offices.

    Channel letter signs are also known as dimensional letters, and they come in numerous varieties.

    5 Channel Signs Used to Advertise Businesses

    There are many varieties of channel letter signs, suitable for different property types. Discover which variety is best for your company.

    1. Exposed Neon Channel Letters

    An exposed neon channel letter sign is a regular channel letter sign made of neon lights. We cover the neon light strips with a clear acrylic. This layer of acrylic stops birds from nesting in the letters and protects the electrical system from the weather too.

    2. Metal Channel Letters

    Metal channel letters are a standard three-dimensional sign formed of metal. Made to measure, we usually make these signs out of sheets of aluminum and cover them in vinyl to add color.

    3. Plastic Channel Letters

    A plastic channel letter sign is a lighter alternative to metal letters. We make these signs using a plastic mold system. You can opt for translucent plastic to diffuse light or we’ll fit these signs with neon lights too.

    4. Back-Lit Letters

    Back-lit channel letters are typically made of metal, with the lighting directed to the back of the letters. This means that the word lights up from behind.

    5. Face and Back-Lit Letters

    Face and back-lit letters will light the letters up from the back as well as from the front. This makes it easier for people to see bright colors and to notice the sign during the night. This is ideal for nightlife and 24-hour companies too.
