Channel Lettering

A channel letter sign is a three-dimensional graphic element with an individual structure and separate illumination. In simpler terms, a channel letter can be any letter, number, or other character that, when combined with other like characters, makes up a sign presentation. Each letter is made using aluminum sheeting, and acrylic. Channel letter signs are highly flexible, and can be made using a wide variety of fonts, colors, and sizes.

Signs4sa’ fabrication and assembly workers create channel letter signs for all types of businesses. Illuminated with colorful neon or LED lighting, in an unlimited variety of “type face” designs, and including your logo, channel lettering creates a high-profile label for your business.

Durable, weather-resistant channel lettering signs are manufactured with aluminum backing and Plexiglas® faces with neon or LED lighting installed within each letter. Letter style or “type face” is reflective of your business’ signature style, shape, and colors. Logos or visual elements can be included as additional channel lighted elements or added to your sign with printed vinyl components. Vacuum forming and embossing processes create striking added effects for the face of channel letter signs, providing depth and texture to your sign.

Channel lettering sign consist of the following parts;

Face: For a standard or front-lit channel letter, the face is made using 3/16” thick colorfast acrylic sheeting that is typically cut to shape using a CNC or multicam router. The acrylic sheeting is available in a variety of color options, and can be customized to a wider spectrum of available colors through the use of high quality translucent vinyl or perforated vinyl from leading manufacturers including 3M, Avery, and Oracal. The acrylic face of a channel letter is attached to the channel letter “can” through the use of “trim cap”.

Trim Cap: The mechanism for attaching the acrylic channel letter face to the body of the channel letter is a UV-stable, earth-friendly, highly durable plastic that is extruded around aluminum foil. The trim cap attaches to the acrylic channel letter face using a liquid bonding agent that “welds” the trim cap to the channel letter face. The face is then ready to be attached to the body of the channel letter.

Channel letter signs are ideal for commercial buildings and institutions and light up your location from high above street level. Channel letters are also popular for outdoor store fronts, providing street illumination and allowing your customers to easily locate you. In addition, channel letters are a popular sign style for indoor mall store fronts to promote the store location and draw customer attention.
