Front lit channel letters

Front lit channel letters use lights to illuminate the face of the letters. This is done with a translucent acrylic face and lights that shine from within the letter itself. Front lit channel letters are the most common type of channel letter and they draw attention during the day or night. Most front lit channel letters are three-dimensional and made of sheet metal cut to create the letter shape. The letters can be painted to the color of your choice and you can select neon or LED illumination for the lighting. Front lit channel letters can be seen from a distance and have several choices for customization.

Back Lit Channel Letters

When selecting a channel letter sign, reverse channel letters are used by clients who want an impactful, classy look for their signage. They are mounted away from the wall so that the light forms a halo behind them, which is why they’re often called “halo”or “backlit” letters. Reverse channel letters have a metal face instead of an acrylic one. They’re also fitted with aluminum returns. Reverse lit channel letters, as they’re otherwise known, typically have clear Lexan or polycarbonate backs. The distance that they’re mounted from the building enables the halo of illumination around each individual character, helping the reverse lit channel letters to stand out.

Front & Back Lit Channel Letters

Front and back-lit channel letters create striking illumination for channel letter signage. In this option, the channel letters are illuminated both from the front and the back. The effect is slightly different and more dramatic than illuminating from either side. Read on for an overview of front-lit, back-lit and both front-and-back-lit channel letters.

Cabinet Signs

Cabinet Signs are large signs that can be non-illuminated or internally illuminated by many methods including LED, Fluorescent, Bulbs, Neon, Etc. They are generally rectangular in shape, but BSC Signs can create a cabinet sign in almost any custom shape.
