Channel Letter Signs
Front-Lit or Standard Letters
Front-Lit or standard letters use aluminum backs and translucent acrylic or polycarbonate faces. Light is emitted from the front of the sign which gives the Front-Lit letter style the best overall visibility.
A Special Front Lit face style is the “Daytime Black / Nighttime White” Face, which allows the best of both worlds. A dark colored face on a light background, but a white letter when the background turns dark at night. It’s an up charge to standard Front Lit channel letters because of the special vinyl used to make this cool feature but well worth the cost if you have “Black Lettering” in your logo.
Reverse- Lit Letters
Reverse or halo-lit letters are essentially the opposite as they mostly have aluminum faces and clear polycarbonate backs. Light is emitted from rear of the sign and projects a halo or soft lighting effect on the building.
Raceway mounted channel letters are attached to a long, custom fabricated aluminum box that is mounted to the building and houses electrical components required to power the LED. The raceway method is often specified by building owners because it causes less damage to the building.
Individual or direct mount channel letters are attached directly to the building facade. Wiring is routed through the wall to an interior cavity, drop ceiling, or other available space.
