Standard channel letter
A standard channel letter is 3-dimensional graphic sign element. Its channel is fabricated from sheet metal, most often aluminum since it will not rust. A flat sheet of aluminum is typically cut on a table by a computer-controlled router. This creates the back of the channel and is the basis for the letter shape. The sides of the channel letter, called the “returns”, are then formed by bending a 3- to 6-inch-wide (150 mm) strip of aluminum sheet around the aluminum back. The letter is painted and fitted with any lighting components necessary such as neon gas tubes or light-emitting diode (LED) modules. A translucent plastic face usually of acrylic or polycarbonate is cut to fit the open face of the letter can. A trim cap border is applied to its edges which gives the letter face a finished appearance and creates a fastening surface to attach it to the letter can. When illuminated at night, channel letters draw the eye of passers-by.
Reverse lit channel letter
In this letter type, the face of the letter is constructed from aluminum and the lighting is directed to the back. This light floods the wall that the letter is mounted to and creates a negative space at night. Letters in this style are also called “halo letters”.
A light box provides the glow for your storefront that will attract customers day and night. The illumination of a lighted box sign draws people in and creates a lasting image in their minds. Company signs are near impossible to see at night; with your lighted box sign, you will never miss a customer.

Similar in construction to Dibond, Alumalite has two sheets of aluminum permanently bonded to both sides of a corrugated plastic core, sandwiching the plastic panel in between. The aluminum sides provide rigidity and durability to the sign, while the fluted plastic core makes Alumalite a very lightweight sign panel. It will not swell or corrode from the inside which makes it a perfect choice for outdoor applications.

Alumalite metal signs are the perfect solution when your sign panel weight must remain low while retaining excellent rigidity. The relatively light weight of Alumalite makes it an excellent choice.
Neon signs are luminous-tube signs that contain neon or other inert gases at a low pressure. Applying a high voltage (usually a few thousand volts) makes the gas glow brightly. They are produced by the craft of bending glass tubing into shapes. Neon sign tubes are distinguished from neon lamp bulbs by their length, customized shapes, higher operating voltages, and range of colors.
