Channel letters are individually illuminated units that are mounted individually on a building or raceway, and can be produced in a wide variety of fonts, styles, and sizes. They can be illuminated, non-illuminated, front lit, or halo-lit letters.
These letters can be illuminated in either a wide variety of brilliantly colored neon, or a more energy efficient low voltage LED.

|The most common letter type, as the name implies, this type of sign only illuminates from the front face of the letter. Internally illuminated with led, the face is created of colored plexiglas. The return (side) is 5" deep to allow light diffusion behind the face.||This type of letter is illuminated with exposed neon. The face is usually open, however a clear acrylic face can optionally be installed. The return (side) is 3" deep to allow neon to show full illumination.||These letters offer an elegant style, with the illumination highlighting a "halo" around the letters. The faces and returns are fabricated of aluminum leaving the face and sides opaque with illumination inside pointed to the wall. These are installed spaced off of the building in various depths so the wall behind the letter is illuminated.||This type of sign can create a vibrant effect with both the face and back of the letter being illuminated. The face and back can be lit with the same color or optionaly contrasting colors.|
