Channel Letter Signs

What is a channel letter sign? Channel letter signs are signage solutions that have cut-out letters and logos. These sign pieces can be illuminated or non-illuminated and mount to an exterior or interior wall. Channel letter signs come in all shapes, sizes, and are crafted according to your design and specifications. 

Take a look around you and you’ll see channel letter signs all around you! Channel letter signage dominates the  landscape on buildings, retail locations, strip malls, inside offices, and more. 

If you’ve driven around Nashville, Hendersonville, Gallatin, Goodlettsville, Franklin, Brentwood, or other places in middle Tennessee, chances are you’ve already seen some of the channel letter sign solutions we fabricated and installed.  

Types of Channel Letter Signs

Although channel letter signage solutions come in all shapes and sizes, they are generally one of the common types below:
  1. Standard Channel Letters: These are individually fabricated letters with a face and sidewalls. They provide a clean and professional look.
  2. Reverse Channel Letters (Halo-lit): In reverse channel letters, the face is opaque, while the sidewalls are constructed to allow light to emit from the back. This creates a “halo” effect, with light casting a glow on the mounting surface behind the letters.
  3. Open Face Channel Letters: These letters have an open face without a clear acrylic face or any other covering. The exposed light source provides a unique and eye-catching appearance.
  4. Front/Back Lit Channel Letters: These letters have both front illumination and halo lighting, combining the effects of standard and reverse channel letters.
  5. Trimless/Flush Mount Channel Letters: Trimless channel letters are designed without visible borders or trim, giving them a sleek and modern appearance. These letters are installed directly onto the building surface, creating a flush or recessed look. They provide a seamless and clean aesthetic.
  6. Formed Channel Letters: Formed channel letters are created by bending a continuous piece of sheet metal, typically aluminum, into the desired shape. This method allows for a wide range of letter designs and styles, offering more flexibility and customization options.
  7. Fabricated Channel Letters: Fabricated channel letters are constructed by attaching individual metal or plastic components together. They offer greater design versatility, as the letters can be customized in terms of size, shape, and color. This type of channel letter is often used for creating intricate logos and unique designs.
Knowing where your sign will be located (inside, outside), the size, illuminated or non-illuminated, will help you determine the best type of channel letter option for you!
