Flush-Mounted Face-Lit Channel Letter Signs

Make your establishment easily noticeable with eye-catching front-lit channel letters. This style of channel letters is directly affixed to the facade of a building or an interior wall.

These flush-mounted channel letters underscore the brand name and logo of any business - be it a franchise, corporation, retail store or otherwise. 

Furthermore, individually mounted channel letters add an element of intrigue and visual appeal to any exterior or interior space.

The letters are illuminated with energy-efficient yet powerful LED bulbs that emphasize your brand name and capture the attention of prospective clients. For companies who struggle to get noticed among competitors, pan channel letters are the best solution.

Trim Cap Channel Letters

Trim cap channel lettering is one of the most sought after signage styles for fulfilling branding goals and requirements. A trim cap is an elastic piece of aluminum that can often be seen on channel lit letters.

The band is attached to the edges of the letters to connect the acrylic face to the aluminum sides. This is the traditional way of making lighted channel letters. 

Trim caps provide a bolder look to the sign by outlining the letters. Usually, the trim caps are the same color as the letters but you can choose a different color for them to provide a unique look to your sign.

This style comes with built-in flexibility and design options. Our professional team specializes in channel letters and is ready to provide world-class solutions and visuals to best reflect your brand culture.

Raceway Channel Letters

Raceway channel letters are used to promote and add character to different business establishments. They’re a highly popular signage solution among business and shopping centers, markets, retail stores, medical centers and a wide variety of other corporate organizations as well as mom-and-pop shops.

A raceway is a metallic box between the wall and channel letters. It covers up and safeguards all the electric wires used for illuminating the channel letters. The raceway is attached to the wall followed by custom channel letters that are fixed onto the raceway with wires. A rust-proof aluminum raceway and our state-of-the-art fabrication technology are combined to best reflect your brand. 

The raceway mounting option is wonderful for business signage. It will help your company gain maximum visibility and earn groundbreaking engagement within your community and beyond. Unlike flush-mounted signs, channel letters on raceways are easily noticeable even without illumination. The letters “pop out” from the wall because the raceway gives an added depth to the sign.

    Channel Letters FAQs

    Q.

    What type of illumination do you use for custom channel letters?

    A.
    For custom channel letters, we use energy-efficient LED strips. These are small LED bulbs on strips attached to the inside of the letter returns, allowing light to transfer forth through an acrylic or lexan face. Unlike other types of light bulbs, LED illumination is cost-effective and lasts longer than incandescent bulbs. Also, LED lights leave 6 tons less carbon footprint than regular bulbs, making them an eco-friendly option.
    Q.

    What materials are used for making channel letter signs?

    A.
    Channel letters are made of only top quality materials such as aluminum, dibond, acrylic and lexan. For the back and sides of the channel letters, we use aluminum or dibond for durability as well as to reduce any risk of a fire hazard. As for the front, we use acrylic or lexan which are both translucent materials for transferring the LED illumination.
    Q.

    What sizes are available for channel letter signs?

    A.
    At Front Signs, we offer custom channel letters which means you can order signs of any size. No matter how big or small your channel letter requirements are, we can manufacture them in your desired dimensions.
