Storefront Channel Letters

Storefront Channel Letters Naperville, ILChannel letter signs are getting more requests than any others. The three-dimensional design of channel letters gives them an appeal that can’t be found in other sign types. Creating them involves cutting metal to create letters, images, and other elements. These elements are then securely aligned to a backing frame or mounted to a building directly. To finish the letters and give them complete customization, an acrylic top is used to cover the letters.

Using channel letter signs, logos, names, and slogans can be made in different colors and sizes. The option to hand form the signs is also available, creating the opportunity for custom icons and images.

Areas such as churches, schools, stores, malls, and office buildings are more likely to choose channel letter signs for their needs.

Dimensional Letters

Dimensional Channel Letters Naperville, IL Dimensional letter signs have a trait in common with channel letter signs. Both are created by taking individual elements and combining them. The difference in dimensional letter signs and channel letter signs comes from what’s inside them. Dimensional letters are cut from solid pieces of material, leaving no room for anything to fit in them. Channel letters have room inside for illumination if they are wanted. The look of signs can be customized in many aspects, down to the thickness of the materials themselves.

High-quality dimensional letter signs can be created specifically for your brand needs by Captivating Signs.

Lobby and indoor signs are perfect candidates for dimensional letter signs. These signs can commonly be found in places like malls, retail stores, offices, restaurants, and even manufacturing areas.
