Signs 101: Illuminated channel letters on a budget?

April 20, 2017

Channel letters are custom-made metal or plastic letters that are commonly used on the buildings of business, churches, and other organizations for exterior signage. They can be illuminated or non-illuminated and can give your business a clean and sophisticated look.

Unfortunately, illuminated channel letters can be financially out of reach for some signage budgets. In many situations though, similar effects can be achieved in a more affordable way with our LED-illuminated push-through letters. Typically, this type of letter is routed from a thick polycarbonate substrate to give it dimension, and then back-lit with LEDs. It won’t be quite as thick as a traditional channel letter but can be fabricated at smaller overall sizes when required. Push-through letters also offer the benefit of side-lighting at no extra cost, adorning the letter edges with an eye-catching halo light effect at night.
