When you look at a custom channel letter sign, sometimes called building identification signs, most people immediately notice the size and shape of the letters. However, did you know there are several different ways to light them? And that your business needs and the type of lighting options available where your sign will be installed can make a big difference in visibility?  You may have already guessed that one of the most important considerations for lighting custom channel letter signs is what type of light will be most visible in the area where you want to install your sign. 

Determining the Best Lighting

The black letters are a contrast to the white trim, and the new LED lighting allows for brighter lettering with less power.

If your business depends on visibility at night, then using neon or LED-illuminated sign might not be a good choice. If tall trees and bushes are blocking the sign, or if there is no lighting in the area, then you might want to consider an alternative option. And if your business is located near a major highway or a road where it could be easily seen from passing cars, then you will probably want to install a lighted channel letter sign. You have probably noticed that some custom channel letter signs are lit up in the back to make the surface of the letter black. 

Lighting Benefits

Lighting is a great way to make sure your custom channel letter signs stand out at night or are very visible during an outdoor event. If you decide on adding lighting to your custom channel letter signs, then there are many options available to you, from neon all the way to black.

Why Dimensional Signs Are So Popular

If you’ve ever been to a retail or manufacturing facility or even a doctor’s office, chances are you’ve seen these big, multi-colored, plastic rectangle signs. These signs are used to attract the attention of passersby, and they have many different purposes: to keep people from wandering off, for directional purposes, and for emergency evacuation purposes. Whatever the reason, these signs are one of the big reasons why dimensional signs have become so popular.

Why? Because they’re a lot more versatile than you may think and they can be used in any number of settings. As it turns out, dimensional signage is great for indoor or outdoor use, especially when you take advantage of advanced printing technology that modern sign companies use for flat-cut lettering.

Dimensional signs have become so popular in recent years because they are an easy way to improve the overall look of your store or area.

What are the Benefits of Dimensional Signs?

The first thing you’ll probably notice about dimensional signs is that they’re far more eye-catching than traditional signs. This is because of the three-dimensional nature of the letters, which are raised up off the surface and have a clear depth to them. If you’ve ever seen a retro movie or cartoon from decades past, then you know what we are talking about.

The 3D effect of dimensional signs makes them eye-catching and memorable. However, it’s not just the way that dimensional sign letters pop off of the background that makes them effective. They’re also very durable compared to traditional flat signs. This is because there are no rounded corners or edges on a dimensional sign. Furthermore, they are completely waterproof and will not fade in sunlight.

Dimensional signs last for years! Plus, they have plenty of energy and movement. This is why dimensional signs are so popular with businesses. There’s no denying that 3D lettering looks fantastic on a sign. It can really catch people’s attention.
