Channel Letters Provide Excellent Visibility
When compared to sign boxes, channel letters provide a greater flexibility of design and offer a much more dramatic appearance. One of the most attractive benefits of using channel letters is the limitless range of fonts available; the unique construction on channel letters makes it possible for their use to extend beyond the traditional worded sign to consist of contour boxes, logos, and even pictures to give each sign a distinctive appearance.Font and colour personalization is one of the many benefits of using channel letters to promote your business or organization.

Front Lit Channel Letters Are A Popular Choice
Occasionally referred to as standard channel letters, front lit channel letters are the most widely used channel letters and are commonly found in and around retail malls and outdoor shopping centers.
Each letter consists of a durable aluminum composite panel (ACP) backing and sides made from pre-finished aluminum channel letter coils, typically painted white on the inside and available in a variety of colours for the outside of the letters. Each individual letter is illuminated internally by LED modules – or neon tubes – and a translucent acrylic face is mounted on the front of the letter to ensure consistent illumination across its front surface. A wide range of colours can be produced by utilizing one of the available translucent acrylic colours or by applying a translucent vinyl overlay onto the surface of white acrylic.

- 5″ x 0.040″ Pre-Finished Aluminum Returns (White on the inside of the letters)
