Exterior, backlit lighted signs can be critical for your business, and Metro Sign & Awning has the experience to help you select the most attractive, beneficial, cost-effective sign possible.
Illuminated signs vary widely by styles, location and materials used.
Low voltage LED lighting is often used to light up the cut-out letters. This is a greener alternative that does add initial cost upfront but will ensure less service work and lower power bills over time.
Channel letter signs are high-profile, professional-looking and easy to read. They are also referred to as 3-D or three dimensional letter signs. They are used by many retail businesses, restaurants, medical and professional offices and institutions incorporating their logos in the sign to reinforce their brand image.
Channel letters are internally illuminated (backlit), easy to read in the day or night and upscale in appearance. They allow for creativity in presenting the business brand to effectively draw the attention of potential customers.
The two primary categories of backlit channel letters are face lit and halo lit. Face lit channel letters are those letters in which the light from within the letter comes through the front face. Signs that have individual colored letters visible at night are face-lit. Halo lit or reverse lit letters are those letters in which the characters are dark at night but have a glow that forms an outline, or halo, effect.
