    Reverse Channel Letter Signs

    Quite distinctively, reverse channel letter signs are highly in demand for businesses that like experimenting with different lights.

    Instead of keeping a front-lit or back-lit as a standalone option, buyers can choose different colour lights for the front face and back face.

    We also customise the colour contrast look to make your brand name look even more appealing.

    What you Get:

    • A colour contrast brand image that looks rich and vibrant.
    • Custom reverse channel letter signs
    • Option to choose different materials
    • Sustainable option with the use of sustainable aluminium and acrylic materials.

    Open-face Channel Letter Signs

    Typically, these types of signs do not use LED lights but traditional neon lights. Apparently, neon bulbs are costly which makes these signs an affordable option for large business spending.

    The reason why open-face channel letter signs are still in demand is their neat and clear front face. Since all neon lights here fit inside the acrylic material, you will hardly see any cast or halo effect with open-face channel signs.

    What you Get:

    • No light in the front face makes it useful during the daylight.
    • Good for heavy-budget businesses
    • Guarantee replacement after 48 hours of use

    What is the difference between raceway and wireway?

    Raceways and wireways are both used as mounting structures for channel letters. Both of them make moving and removing your channel letters simpler. But their encasement is what makes them unique. Wireways are typically only made up of wires and are slimmer and narrower. Conversely, raceways may include both wiring and electrical components.

    How long do channel letter signs last?

    Nowadays, LED or neon lighting is used to illuminate many channel letter signs. Depending on how often the light is used, LED bulbs have a life expectancy of 50,000 to 100,000 hours, which translates to 13–15 years, and are safer than neon bulbs. This expectation could still change based on other outside variables. To learn more about this, get in touch with us at (647) 763-9173.

    How do you put LED lights on a channel letter?

    Using LED lights, you can illuminate your sign in a number of different ways. These lights are mounted with the other lighting components on a plastic or metal enclosure. Make an appointment for a consultation with one of our knowledgeable experts to find out more.

    Will illuminated channel letters last outside?

    Durability is a benefit of channel letters because they are typically made of aluminum. While these signs are typically made of sturdy materials, which are strong enough to withstand various weather conditions and other external factors, they are also lightweight.
