How Channel Letters Are Made:
A channel letter is made from aluminum for outdoor signage because of the size of display letters. For inside signage, thickness varies which can be made from plastic, wood or LED wiring. Sizing also matters. Each letter is made of acrylic unless you want a hollow, open-face design. Then there are 3D channel letters that use LEDs for illumination. These types are pleasing to the eye and hard to miss at night.
Newer channel letters are reliable for the environment because they are made with aluminum which does not rust, and LEDs which do not contain any harmful substances. Older channel letters were made from neon tubing which contained mercury and wasn’t safe for the environment.
How Channel Letters Can Be Modified:
Channel letters have a creative advantage over other colorful signage types. You can choose from a variety of fonts, size, and LED colors to create a customized brand name for your business. After designing your channel letter, there are some options for channel letter placements. Channel letters can be:
- Mounted on a metal panel, giving space from the exterior wall
