Dimensional & Channel Letters On the Mississippi Gulf Coast

 
 

Channel Letters - (Illuminated Letters)

Visible by day, luminous at night, channel letters provide great depth and precision to your company's sign.
Channel letters are also known as "internally illuminated letters". This description says it all in that each letter is generally lit from the inside with light shining through the plastic sign face or out the back of the letter (called a halo-lit, or reverse channel letter). As is the case for most of the signs we offer, channel letters are custom made from metal and plastic, and are commonly illuminated with LED lighting (very efficient) or neon tubing.
Channel letters may be installed directly to the building facia (each letter is mounted individually) or on a raceway. A raceway is a pre-fabricated metal box that runs the length of the channel letter sign. The raceway is then mounted directly to the building fascia. Your type of installation may be determined by the city ordinance or building owner's sign criteria. We can help you get the results you're looking for.
Our channel letters are manufactured to the strictest standards, and meet all the necessary local electrical and building codes.

Types of Channel Letters

 

Standard Letters

Standard letters are 3 dimensional letters covered with thick plastic and illuminated from the inside.
 

Exposed Neon

These resemble Standard Letters but there is no plastic covering, allowing the neon to show through.
 

Backlit

These have a solid opaque front and are illuminated from behind the letter, causing a "negative space" when illuminated at night.

Dimensional Letters - (Non-Illuminated Letters)

 
Add some dimension to your signage, literally! Dimensional lettering is an effective way to grab attention and guide customers to your place of business. Exterior dimensional lettering can be installed directly to your building facade and to self-standing signage structures, such as monument signs or other low profile signs.
There is a distinct difference between our dimensional letters and its cousin, the channel letter. Dimensional letters are illuminated externally. That is, if you're looking to light up your sign by night, you'll need to consider an external lighting source. If you're looking for maximum impact, and the application warrants it, we recommend that you consider channel letters to internally illuminate your sign to attract attention to your brand, day or night.
Durable, yet economical, our dimensional lettering can be made in varying depths depending on the material you choose.
