Channel Letters are extremely effective for aggressively grabbing attention. The three types of channel leters are: Standard Channel Letters, Reverse/Halo Channel Letters, and Open-Face Channel Letters.
Standard Channel Letters are made up of a U-channel base, with colored Plexiglass faces.
Reverse / Halo Channel Letters have metal faces and returns (sides of letters). These letters are designed to be mounted an inch or so from the wall. At night, when lit, these letters create a halo effect.
Note: for both standard and reverse channel letters, we highly recommend the use of LEDs. LEDs are more energy efficient and they require less maintenance. Open-Face Channel Letters are built just like Standard Channel Letters. However, they have clear plexiglass faces, so that the neon inside can be seen.
Every illuminated set of channel letters we make are built to UL standards. Zoning departments in almost every county requires UL listed signs; and for good reason. Electric signs need to be properly fabricated and wired to prevent any devastating problems or fires.
