Types of Backlit Channel Letters


Standard Reverse Channel Letters

Custom backlit channel letters are adjusted onto the wall with the help of pins, spacers or studs.

With our vast experience in reverse channel letter fabrication, we properly capture the design and provide striking lighting effects.

The longer the pins or gap between the letters and the wall, the wider the shadow and more diffused the lighting.

Pin mounted reverse channel letters are created using individual letters, symbols, logos and/or numbers. Each and every one of these signs are individually secured on the building face and powered with LED lights.

The style, dimensions and design elements like font and color are fully customizable. Front Signs has all the necessary equipment to fabricate your reverse channel letters in-house to meet and exceed your business requirements.

    Reverse Channel Letters FAQs


    What are backlit letters?

    Reverse channel letters or backlit letters are large advertising mediums that grant even the most drab locations a strong sense of brand identity and panache. Each individually cut and fabricated reverse channel letter emits light from the back to create a brilliant outline of the sign. For illumination, we use LED bulbs which are very popular with bars, clubs and professional establishments.

    What is the process for creating reverse channel letters?

    There are several types of backlit channel letters. Each kind has its own special manufacturing and fabricating techniques. First off, reverse channel letters are three-dimensional illuminated signs capable of creating messages on materials such as aluminum and acrylic. The body of the structure is mostly aluminum to prevent light from passing through. The reel is made of acrylic or lexan to create a light effect that surrounds the sign like a luminous outline.

    How much electricity do reverse channel letters use?

    On average, low voltage LED bulbs use 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs.

    What’s the difference between halo and reverse channel letters?

    There are several distinguishing elements to consider. The back of each sign is where the main differences come into play. Apart from manufacturing techniques, the major variable is the light effect displayed on the sign. Both incorporate LED lights of different color and intensity. In the case of reverse channel letters, there is a silhouetted backing that centers the viewer’s attention onto the letters surrounded by light. In contrast to reverse channel letters, halo signs provide more of a dispersed lighting effect that envelopes the display to create dramatic illumination.
