Channel letter signs presently are the top choice for commercial signage and are our bread and butter.
Highly versatile, channel letters can be created from standard styles or completely custom designed to suit your client's request. They can be used for internal or external storefronts and may be mounted directly to a building or on a metal "raceway" structure that can mount to a building with connection points. Whatever style you choose, US Signs and Letters will fabricate a quality illuminated or non-illuminated sign that makes your mark!
Whether standard or custom fabricated, our channel letters are individually created, dimensional letters. Each letter is separate and formed of separate aluminum "channel" enclosures that can house LED or other lighting to form an illuminated sign. The sides of the channels, or "returns" can be of depths from 2" to 10" with the outsides painted to match the face or in a contrasting color. The front or "face" of some styles of channel letters signs are acrylic and provide a wide variety of color choices to work with your clients' logos, branding, and specific site.
US Signs and Letters wholesale channel letters come in six basic styles:
- Front Lit Channel Letters - these are the most common type of channel letter type also sometimes called "standard"channel letters.
