Channel Lettering

What is channel lettering?

Channel lettering is a 3-dimensional graphic sign element that displays your company’s name or logo. When mounted onto the front of your store, these custom signs instantly become one of the best forms of advertisement for your business.

What channel lettering options are available?

Our team of experts are capable of designing many different styles of channel letters, made from a wide variety of durable materials. Let your storefront shine by illuminating your channel lettering with neon gas tubes or LED modules. Different materials are used depending on your specific needs.

We can design your channel letters out of:

  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminum
  • Acrylic
  • Polycarbonate

Although a variety of channel lettering techniques can be used for your storefront, standard channel lettering and reverse lit channel lettering are the two most common types.

Standard Channel Lettering

This very common form of channel lettering requires sheet metal to be machine-cut into a specified shape, forming the back of the letters. The sides of the letters, also known as “returns”, are formed by bending strips of aluminum around the back. Lighting components are inserted and covered with a translucent plastic face. This translucency allows light to shine through and prevents potential customers from missing your business at night.

Reverse Lit Channel Lettering

In this letter type, the face of the letter is machine-cut from aluminum, and the lighting is directed to the back. This light floods the wall that the letter is mounted to and creates a negative space at night, silhouetting the letters against the illumination. Letters in this style are also called “halo letters”.

Looking for something a bit more unusual? Our team of experts can design everything from open face channel letters to front and back lit channel letters, and much more!
