About Our Channel Letter Signs

Channel letter signs spell out the name of your company with aluminum lettering that frequently includes LEDs for illumination. We manufacture your logo symbol with an electrical cabinet sign that we size proportionally to your letters.

  • Aluminum construction. Aluminum is lightweight and sturdy. We shape the letters to present the font that you have chosen for your website’s appearance or business cards.
  • Facings. Select polycarbonate or acrylic for the facings.
  • Illumination. There are three standard forms of lighting: front-lit, backlit and open-faced. They allow the light to escape through the front or back; in the case of open-faced signage, we use neon tubes to present the colorful illumination you desire without the need for a facing.
  • Installation options. A raceway makes it possible to install channel letter signs to all types of facades. We paint it in the tone of the façade and use it to hide the wiring for illumination. A flush wall installation is another option in many cases. When you decide on backlit channel letters, our technicians use two-inch standoffs to allow for the formation of a halo effect.

By the way, although the vast majority of clients prefer to commission illuminated channel letter signs, you also have the option of ordering unlit lettering.
