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
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 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.
