Halo Lit Signs Versus Front Lit Letter Signs
Illumination Options for Channel Letters
There are two main ways of illuminating channel letters, Halo Lit and Front Lit. Take a deeper look so you can make an informed decision about which one is the best choice for your business.
Halo Lit Channel Letters
Also known as reverse channel letter or back-lit channel letters, they are a great way to showcase your company by giving your sign a distinctive and memorable approach. The letters create a prominent halo effect by emitting light on the wall behind the letters instead of in front of the letters. They cost slightly more than front lit letters, but the results speak for themselves.
Use this type of channel letters for building name recognition, reinforcing brand awareness, and providing wayfinding aid.
Front Lit Channel Letters
Also called standard channel letters, they cast illumination only from the front of the letters. They can be mounted to a raceway, wireway, or flush mounted to the building.
Standard channel letters are commonly used as outdoor business signs, storefront identification, university identification, airport illuminated, apartment identification, illuminated entrance monuments, shopping malls, and outdoor plazas. They are incredibly effective in directing potential clients and customers to your location.
Both options can be lit by LEDs lowering the operating costs. Channel letters are custom designed allowing business owners to fully create their logo into a two or three-dimensional visual representation of their business. This type of sign will surely make your business noticeable.
