Top 4 Uses for Channel Letters - Houston Graphic Sign

Channel letters are a popular choice of sign for Houston-area businesses to identify and promote themselves. This article will look at four ways you can use channel letters.

 

1. The most common use of channel letters in and around Houston, Texas, is to identify businesses.

Channel letters have two major qualities: they’re illuminated and they’re three-dimensional. The benefits of illumination are easy to understand. A lighted sign is significantly more visible than an unlighted one. In the Houston area of Texas, we’re lucky to not be troubled by snow very often, but it still rains here. And most businesses in the Houston area need their signage to be seen in rain and at night. The only effective way to achieve this is by illuminating your sign.

 

2. The illumination of a channel letter sign boosts its visibility. But its shape and structure allow for a channel letter sign to be an effective promotional tool.

Beyond illumination, the shape of channel letters makes them more eye-catching. Two-dimensional planes are adequate for many signs, but by utilizing the third dimension, channel letters can convey more character. The added depth of field allows sign designers to impart more boldness, creativity, or whatever characteristic of your Houston business’s brand that you want to emphasize with your channel letter sign. If all you cared about was identifying your Houston business, you could simply commission a giant sign with nondescript font. But a channel letter sign doesn’t merely identify your business, it promotes it as well, making it look more attractive and interesting.

 

3. Channel letters don’t have to be used to identify your Houston business; they act as great supplemental signage, too.

Sometimes channel letter signs are not the most appropriate choice to be the main identifier of your Houston business. While they can be quite large, channel letters rarely reach the sizes that some pole signs and roof signs can reach. But even if your business needs a very large outdoor sign, a channel letter sign is still useful as supplemental promotional/branding signage.

 

4. While mostly used outdoors, channel letter signs can be used indoors as well.

For Houston businesses with large, open indoors spaces (such as a lobby), a channel letter sign can be used to brand the space and promote your business. Just keep in mind that channel letter signs require wiring, either using a wireway or raceway, so you should consult a signage expert from a sign company before choosing a location to install your channel letter sign.

    High quality graphics and they came to install them. Good work.

    Adam Davidson Aug 8, 2021

    I had a great experience with Michelle at HGS. We we're in a huge time crunch to get our signage created in time for an upcoming tradeshow. I supplied HGS with the art, and unfortunately we had some issues with my files. HGS was able to re-create the artwork AND print my signage in less than a week. Top notch communication and exceptional prices. Can't recommend them enough.

    Houston Graphic Signs is by far the best sign company in Houston, I am an assistant to a large local real estate brokerage in the area. We had an emergency regarding the HOA size requirements for a yard sign for one of our top agents about a year ago and Houston Graphic Signs were the only sign company able to expediate the sign and have it delivered asap! (believe me I probably called every sign company in Houston for help and Houston Graphic Signs were the only company that got it done) I have been working with Houston Graphic Signs for over a year now they produced high quality signs for our top producing agents (around 300) and worked with me regarding the art work and spreadsheets. Houston Graphics Signs always checks for errors on the art work to insure high quality. Michelle Mason who is one of the owners is always available! She always goes above and beyond even working late into the evening and weekends to assure our products arrive on time. You will not go wrong using Houston Graphic signs if you want high quality material priced at a competitive rate as well as top notch service. Thank you for everything Houston Graphic Signs Michelle Nagler

    This company is fantastic. The design department was very receptive to our ideas for our logo. They were quick to offer suggestions for ways to make our company logo memorable. They offered multiple designs for us and were quick to present any changes that were made. They were very accommodating to our schedule for the installation on our truck. If you are looking for great service and a quality product, you need to look no further than Houston Graphic Sign Company. They will be doing all of our future graphic projects.

    Houston Graphic Signs is a fantastic business with amazing customer service and a fast turnaround! Michelle was extremely helpful and communicated with me every step of the way. I ordered a yard sign to announce my son's graduation from college and it is much nicer and bigger than I expected! It was also packed with great care which tells me how much they value their customers. I will definitely give Houston Graphic Signs more business in the future!

    We had an outstanding experience with our signs! HGS made decals for the sides of our trucks. Brent helped us with creating the right electronic file from one of our old files. Michelle has been proactive in her communications. Quality is far better than we have received from other sign companies. HGS will be our permanent sign company going forward!

    They made a custom yard sign for me very quickly. It was affordable, well made, and exactly what I was looking for. I have had several neighbors comment on it andI happily yell them where I got it. I would use Houston Graphic signs again without hesitation for any signage needs.

    I was impressed with the array and caliber of work that Houston Graphics Signs does and love supporting a local, business that does much of the work in-house, so you know where your “stuff” is and you know it will be done right.

    Chevonne Marie Jun 6, 2020

    We ordered a sign to commemorate our son graduation from JH. Houston Graphic Designs did an amazing job. From ordering to completion and pick up it was a smooth process. We are very pleased with the looks and with the quality of our sign. In fact, we placed it in our front yard and right after it rained non stop for 12 hours. The sign though withstood the inclement weather without any damage. Nice product at a great price!

    Monica Jung May 5, 2020

    Houston Graphic Signs has been super helpful with all my requests. They are efficient, good pricing, and deliver on time. Love the business cards and graduating senior signs they made for me!

    Sonia Dang May 5, 2020

    HGS did a fantastic job with our club. We worked closely with the team and the owners to come up with a design that turned out better than we expected. HGS was very responsive to any changes or tweaks we required. We had several renderings before we settled on the final design. The install took less than a day to complete. All in all...very impressed and will always come back to HGS in the future. Many thanks!!!

    My experience with the wonderful people at Houston Graphic Signs was great, and they did an AMAZING job on our first partial truck wrap for my business: Johnson’s Garage Doors. They even helped come up with a brand new logo design and it came out better than I could’ve imagined. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for design and graphics work as they offer a wide variety of services that any business would benefit from. I’m looking forward to them helping me with my business cards and shirts with my new logo design when we are ready for that too.

    Johnsons Garage Doors Feb 2, 2020

    Finding fast and reliable service providers is so hard. I'm glad that I was able to easily contact and communicate with Houston Graphics and Signs. I recommend them!
