When it comes to customer facing advertising methods on your storefront, a quality, vibrant, and properly sized set of channel letters cannot be beat!
What is a channel letter?
Simply put, a channel letter is a three dimensional letter that is made up of 4 common parts.
Can channel letters be illuminated?
Absolutely! Illumination is a must this and age of advertising. Depending on local sign ordinances, lighting can be employed in many different styles, colors, and reveal types. From the classic hum and soft glow of traditional bent neon or the modern low wattage and high lumen LED, illumination is a guaranteed way to get your sign noticed. Ask our sales team what lighting and control options are best for your application.
How will my business’ channel letters be mounted?
There are two ways to mount channel letters to the facade of a building and we strongly suggest checking with the property owner before you decide on a type of mounting method if you lease your business space.
Individually mounted – This method uses the building as an anchor point and if illuminated, power is routed through the facade for each letter.
Raceway mounted – A “raceway” is a box typically employed in instances when signage needs to be easily removed such as leased tenant buildings. The set of channel letters are fastened to the raceway and power in the case of illuminated letters is routed from the letters, into the raceway where the transformer is mounted, and then a whip is sent into the facade of building. This method results in only one hole that is drilled into the building for power and a limited amount of anchoring bolts compared to individually mounted letters.
