What Are Channel Letters
Some Popular Choices
Front Lit Channel Letter
Commonly referred to as standard channel letter, this item has a wide application. You will commonly found them in and around retail malls and outdoor shopping centers. Each letter is consisted of strong and long lasting aluminum composite panel (ACP). The back and sides are crafted from pre-finished aluminum channel letters coils. These standard letters are typically painted with white color on the inside. However, you can choose from an array of colors to beautify the outside of the item. The letters are illuminated internally using LED modules or neon tubes. A translucent acrylic face is applied on the front surface. This ensures continuous illumination across the front surface. To produce an array of colors translucent vinyl overlay is also applied onto the surface of white acrylic.
Halo Lit Channel Letters
If you want to create a more refined look for your signage, this is definitely a desirable option. Also known as reverse channel letters they are generally mounted with spacers. This creates a gap between the rear of the letters and the mounting surface where the sign is installed. This allows proper exit of light through the rear of the letters which create a halo effect reflecting off the wall. To create this halo effect the letters are constructed with their open side facing backwards, hence the term reverse is used.
Front and Back Lit
This type of signage creates a distinctive look combining the effect of both translucent acrylic and halo lighting. It utilizes translucent acrylic to illuminate the front of the letters. Again, halo lighting is used to illumine the wall or the mounting surface behind the product. High quality transparent polycarbonate is used to craft the back of this attractive signage. This material allows smooth passing of light through the letters which reflect off the mounting surface creating an eye-catching look.
