When it comes to signage, channel letter signs are a great option.  All around Atlanta you can see some beautiful examples of these highly popular signs. Channel letters lend themselves well to 3D designs, and can be seen clearly 24 hours a day. Moreover they are energy efficient signs. As the leading sign company in Peachtree Corners, United Signs can fabricate eye-catching signs that will make a bold impression on all passers-by.

What’s a Channel Letter Sign?
A standard channel letter sign consists of custom made, individual 3-dimensional letters fabricated from sheet metal or aluminum. At our Norcross facility, usually a router cuts the letter shape, and the sides or returns are made by bending an aluminum sheet around it. The letters can be painted or fitted with lighting, and are given a translucent plastic face. Variations include exposed neon channel letter signs and reverse lit channel letter signs.

Standard letters are often fitted with high-efficiency LED lighting that gives off bright, even illumination. This makes the letters highly visible during the day and especially at night. Finished letters can either be mounted directly onto the face of a building, or first onto structures called raceways and wireways. Other elements may be added to complete the design, such as custom shapes made in the same manner as the letters.

Reverse lit signs have the light directed toward the backs of the letters which are left open. The light hits the back panel or wall and produces a brilliant halo effect around each letter, which is often painted black to provide a good contrast.
