Are you a business owner who is curious what channel letter signs are and how they could give your company an advantage? Channel letters provide eye-catching style that will make your business stand out in the crowd.
What are Channel Letter Signs?
Channel letter signs are illuminated letters or logos made from durable materials that create a 3D effect. They come in various sizes and colors and can be customized to meet your business’s specific needs. Depending on your location, these signs may also be referred to as lightbox letters. LED lights are usually used to illuminate them at night for maximum visibility.
The Different Types
The type of sign that is best suited for your business depends on its size, budget, and intended use. The most common types include:
Reverse Halo Lit Channel Letters
reverse halo lit channels feature trim-less edges while front lit channels have a thin aluminum trim around each letter.
Open Face Channel Letters
Open face channels feature two layers of aluminum with an acrylic faceplate between them while standard depth channels feature three layers of aluminum with an acrylic faceplate in the middle layer.
Raceway Mounted Channel Letters
Raceway mounted channels are attached directly onto a metal raceway which creates a neat appearance while providing extra stability for the sign itself.
Uses for Channel Letter Signs
These popular signs can be used both indoors and outdoors depending on the type chosen by a business owner or manager. These signs can be used to create brand recognition in high traffic areas such as shopping centers or busy streets where potential customers may pass by on their daily commutes or errands. They can also be used as directional signage or identification signage at office buildings or other larger commercial complexes where tenants may need help finding their way around the premises.
Advantages & Disadvantages
One of the main benefits of using channel letter signs is that they offer excellent visibility due to their illumination, which makes them easy to spot in low light conditions, or during night time hours when other signage may not be visible enough. However, they often require more maintenance than traditional signage options, such as vinyl banners or printed posters, which only need occasional cleaning and repairs if necessary. However, all signs will require some maintenance due to wear and tear over time from exposure to elements such as rain, wind, snow, etc.
How to Choose the Right Sign for Your Business?
Before selecting a particular type of channel letter sign for your business needs, it’s important to consider all available options carefully based on factors such as size and scale, your budget, the signs intended use, and local regulations regarding signage installations and permits. Once these factors have been taken into consideration then you should feel comfortable moving forward with making an informed decision about which type would best suit your particular needs.
