Channel letter signs are great outdoor signs for identifying and promoting businesses. Discover five advantages to installing channel letters.

1. Channel Letter Signs Allow For More Character Than Two-Dimensional Text.

Every sign you have is representative of your business and your brand, especially any sign you’re going to use to identify your Houston-area business. While it’s not the first thing we think about, something as simple as font choice can convey the character of your brand. Some fonts appear more playful and creative while others are more reserved and authoritative. Whatever font you choose, because channel letters are individually crafted three-dimensional letters, its character comes through a lot more impactfully than the same font printed on a two-dimensional sign panel.

2. Channel Letter Signs Are Illuminated, So They Can Be Seen From Long Distances.

All channel letters are illuminated (non-lighted channel letters are typically called “dimensional letters”). Illumination brings with it several advantages. A bright sign can be seen further away than a non-lighted sign. By simply illuminating your sign, you can achieve a range of visibility that could only otherwise be achieved by making your sign quite a bit larger, which is not always practical nor desirable.

3. Illumination Makes Channel Letter Signs Stand Out At Night.

Even if you do have the space for a large enough sign to be seen, if it’s not lighted, it can only be seen during the day. As illuminated signage, channel letters really stand out at night and in the rain, when other signs lose their visibility.

4. Channel Letter Signs Illuminated With LEDs Are Very Cost-Effective.

The most common light-source for channel letters nowadays are light-emitting diodes (LEDs). LEDs have advanced a lot over the past 20 years. They no longer give off an unpleasant bluish glow as fluorescent lights do and they last longer than neon lights. Furthermore, they are far more efficient than incandescent bulbs. This means you will save money on your energy bill and you can expect to keep your LEDs for a long time.

5. You Have Different Installation Options With Channel Letter Signs.

You can choose your look for your channel letters with a raceway or flush mounted. A raceway is a mounting structure that houses the electrical components of the sign. A  flush mount has wiring, going directly through the wall.

    • 5 star review  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

    • 5 star review  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.

I ordered a yard sign to announce my son's graduation from college and it is much nicer and bigger than I expected!
