Channel letters are individual letters or shapes with built-in illumination. They can be front-lit or halo-lit and are often used for storefront signage, particularly in retail and restaurant settings.


Also known as halo-lit or reverse-lit signs, these signs have LEDs installed behind the sign, creating a halo effect around the letters or graphics. They offer an elegant and eye-catching appearance.

Frontlit signs are designed with the light source located in front of the sign elements, illuminating the sign face. These signs are commonly used in outdoor advertising, such as billboards and building signage.


Edge-lit signs have light sources along the edges of a transparent or translucent sign material, such as acrylic or glass. The light is internally reflected through the material, making the sign elements appear to glow.
