Reverse illuminated channel letters do not light up the front of the letters like face lit channel letters do. Instead, the letters are mounted 1-2” stood off the wall and the light is aimed at the back of the letter and it provides a halo light around each letter. The main advantage is aesthetic look. This look is recommended in high end retail, historic or design conscious areas. It is important to note that with this option you cannot light up graphics, fades or specific colors in logos. Most often this look is found in pedestrian level areas. This sign style is best installed on brick/stone or matte finish walls. Walls with a shine or glossy finish can tend to show “Hot Spots” where LED modules are seen individually.
Face lit channel letters are an appealing way to promote your brand on your building or on a monument sign. At night, each individual letter lights up giving the appearance of your name floating on your building. Letters can be flush mounted to the building or on a raceway to allow for easier installation and less penetrations into the wall. Our letters are all LED illuminated ensuring a long lasting display and peace of mind.
Cabinet Signs or Light Box signs can come in a variety of shapes but are best known in the classic rectangular shape. These signs are typically internally illuminated and are built from an extrusion system that allows for a variety of depth. The faces can be Lexan, flex face, routed and backed aluminum or routed push thru acrylic. The flexibility of a cabinet signs allows our fabricators to make them into any shape, including complete radius curves. This style is most often found on the exterior storefront but can also serve as interior signage as well. In addition to being wall mounted cabinet signs can also be mounted on poles or on a monument sign base.
This type of combination is not new. In fact, it has been a favorite of businesses that need to have a logo displayed alongside the spelling of the company’s name. Since the channel letter manufacturing process does not usually lend itself to the creation of a full-sized logo, the addition of a box cabinet with a vinyl overlay usually sufficed. Sign company’s usually charge per letter making a cabinet sign less expensive.
No matter if you are a single business looking for a street-side, standalone pylon or a property manager in need of a pylon for all of your properties and buildings, we will assist you in installing a custom pylon sign to fit your needs! Pylon Signs, typically custom lightboxes, come in different shapes and sizes. For single businesses a large lightbox with lettering is affixed to a large pole or is a self-standing 3-D fixture with several faces.
Monument signs are the smaller cousin of pylon signs. These signs tend to be lower to the ground and create that crucial first impression to your customers. Typically, less than 20’ in height monument signs are tied into the brand and also can highlight/compliment architectural features of your business’s building itself. The base of a monument sign can be complimentary stone/brick or fabricated metal. Often times on the top of the main cabinet a decorative topper can be created. Monument signs are usually illuminated and can have a variety of face types. These include flat Lexan with vinyl graphics, routed and backed, routed push-thru and even channel letters on the faces.
