Channel Letter Manufacturing Process


Creating Design & Production File

Before beginning production, the customer will validate the design regarding dimensions, methods, and unique requirements. The customer will also produce an easily recognizable file for machines and deliver one copy to each department.


Laser Cutting & CNC Engraving

 Acrylic and stainless steel are engraved and cut based on the production file.



Production file specifications indicate that fold the piece of the side that contains the slot, then bend the portion of that side that includes the curvedness.



Weld the side or return to the face of the channel letters while ensuring that their surfaces are accurately welded.



To effectively ensure a strong weld connection, it is important to polish the face and return until they are completely smooth, with no gaps in the surface.



Painting the channel letter completely and uniformly using the painting reference provided by the customer.



After the letters are painted, they are placed in the drying room and allowed to dry so that their paint will become more durable.


LED Module Assembly

 Install the LED module according to design, then choose a suitable LED module and evenly spread them throughout the letter, making sure that the wiring from one letter to another is even brighter.

Light Up-Testing2

Light Up Testing

Once the wiring is complete, we evaluate the letters’ overall quality. Every sign is given our approval before it is released from the factory. After being assessed by our in-house inspectors and found to be up to standard, channel letters are ready for shipment.


Overall Quality Checking

All stages in the production process—from quality to quantity and craftsmanship—are governed by a strict, step-by-step procedure. Take photos of the completed letters at this point, including all of the screws and transformers, then place them on the 1:1 size template for the final inspection.



Channel letters come in various sizes, giving you options for compact packaging. They help keep your product organized and clean, and they can save you money on shipping costs.

Significant Advantages of Channel Letters

Channels are essentially marketing tools and can be used for promoting a product or organization. They are also known for expedient communication between different parties in an organization. However, channels have significant advantages to the trade, enabling faster business processes, increasing productivity, and reducing costs. Here are the considerable advantages of channel letters.

Flexible Design

Channel letter signs can be made into practically anything you can think of because of their various fabrication options. The size, color, shape, and fashion are up to you. The only restrictions you might experience are those imposed by zoning laws, rules, and codes.

Indoors and Outdoors

You may buy both outdoor and indoor varieties of channel letters for your store because they can be lit or unlit and have varied sizes. Businesses can use channel letters as eye-catching directing signs. This enables the maintenance of a consistent image, which relates to our following argument about brand recognition.

Durability and Longevity

Aluminum and acrylic are strong materials that can withstand all types of weather. For instance, aluminum withstands ice, severe winds, scorching heat, and direct sun exposure. Aluminum and acrylic or polycarbonate are also low-cost materials that need little upkeep. You won't often if ever, need repairs.

High Visibility

For two reasons, companies choose channel letter signage for their retail locations. First, there are instances when a law or other requirement makes signage necessary. Second, channel lettering looks elegant and polished. When potential consumers or clients see your company's name lit up distinctively, they begin to recognize it and finally stop by.


Once installed, channel letter signage requires almost no maintenance. These rigid signs are made to last, though occasionally, you may need to check for weathering. Additionally, LED lamps offer more excellent energy economy. Depending on the grade of the LED lights and how frequently the sign is used, they can survive for five years or longer.


Our channel letters are affordable and versatile, making them ideal for branding anything from office buildings to restaurants and retailers. We also offer highly customizable letter panels that can be easily picked up, shipped, and installed at your facility.

LITASIGN's Durable and High -quality Channel Letters

LITASIGN offers an extensive range of channel letters for residential and commercial applications. The channel letter is a unique way to design your path to attract potential customers. The letters are created from high-quality materials that make them durable, weather-resistant, and impact resistant.

Non Illuminated Channel Letters

As the name suggests, individual letters that lack internal illumination are known as non-illuminated Channel Letters. However, we would advise illuminated signage for any business. Non-illuminated signage is more economical for establishments that operate during regular business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Don't necessarily have walk-in traffic or must have non-illuminated signage due to landlord or bylaw requirements.

Illuminated Channel Letters

The term "internally lighted letters" is another name for illuminated channel letters, and it perfectly sums them up! Each letter has an internal light source that shines through the plastic sign face or the back (called a halo-lit or reverse channel letter).

Indoor Channel Letters

The Indoor Channel Letters are a well-liked option for businesses of all sizes and sectors. Ultimately, they make companies or stores stand out from the competition while enticing customers to associate success and professionalism with their feelings. This does not imply that there aren't other signs that can accomplish this.

Outdoor Channel Letters

Demand for outdoor channel letter signs is higher than for any other type. Outdoor channel letters have a unique attraction that isn't present in different sign kinds, thanks to their three-dimensional form. They are made by cutting the metal into letters, pictures, and other designs. Then, these components are affixed directly to a building or securely aligned to a backing structure. The letters are covered with an acrylic top to give them a polished touch and complete personalization.

Building Channel Letters

The most common type of building or business signage is channel letters. LED lighting makes these signs look fantastic both during the day and at night. Select from lighted or non-illuminated channel letters that can have both backlighting and face lighting.

Day Night Channel Letters

Day-Night Channel Letters give a transition between day and night a distinctive appearance. With 3M's Day Night Film, you may achieve two different face colors instead of the traditional channel letters that display the same color day and night. Day-Night Channel Letters provide a visually appealing and functional sign for both day and night. Because the most acceptable color option for the day may not be the best for the night.

Neon Channel Letters

These letters' faces are usually open, but a clear acrylic face is also an option. Neon, as the name implies, is the illumination source for open Face channel Letters, and the neon is exposed (rather than being encased behind colored acrylic). Numerous writing types, fonts, and styles are available for Open Face Channel letters, but only Neon illumination is general.

Foam Channel Letters

You-specific customized foam channel letters. Choose from a range of foam sign letter materials and finishes depending on the strength and endurance required for your unique project. Our most popular foam channel letters are composed of 3-pound polystyrene. Which is dense and has fewer pinholes on the sides than the one or 2-pound foam letters sold on other websites. Foam channel letters for signs have fantastic depth and are built to last.

Lettering is available with backing or without backing and comes in various metallic, electroplated colors. You can also paint your lettering with any Pantone color. The LED modules run throughout the letter, so you get a complete outlining of your letters in the lighting color of your choice.

The Ultimate FAQ Guide for Channel Letter Manufacturer


With so many sign manufacturers, figuring out who is right for you can be tricky. Choosing the proper manufacturer can be even more challenging with hundreds of different types of channel letters and formats. You want the best price but don’t want to sacrifice quality or service. You want to ensure you’re getting a fair deal, but who has the best reputation? We constantly hear these questions from our customers.

We decided to create this Ultimate FAQ Guide for Channel Letter Manufacturers.

Table of Contents

1. How Are Channel Letters Fabricated?

Channel letters are composed of four main pieces: the return, the face, the backing, and the lighting element. The return is a piece of sheet metal; aluminum is the most popular material. The look is acrylic or another material if it is halo-lit. The same rules apply to the back of channel letters. LEDs have replaced neon tubing for illumination because LEDs use less energy than neon bulbs.

Some manufacturers use computer numerical control (CNC) manufacturing, while others use hand tools. CNC is often considered higher quality since the chance of error is reduced. Hand tools increase the risk of imperfections and possible moisture intrusion into the channel letter, damaging light bulbs.

2. What Types of Channel Letter Signs Do You Manufacture?

Front Lit Channel Letters – The most common type in channel letter sign design is called “front-lit.” It is also known as “standard channel letters.” The main advantages of front-lit channel letters are daytime and nighttime visibility, created by placing lights inside the letters and other parts of the sign, such as a logo. This lighting keeps the sign lit throughout the day and night so that message can be visible to drivers during both daylight hours and periods of limited visibility due to fog or rain.

Figure 2 - Front Lit Channel Letters

Halo Lit/Reverse Lit Channel Letters – Halo-lit channel letters are also known as reverse-lit channel letters. This is because of the halo of light that forms around each letter. The back of the sign is made with clear acrylic that stands about 1.5 inches apart from the mounting surface. When the light shines, it comes from the back, illuminates the mounting surface, and then diffuses.

Figure 3 - Halo Lit/Reverse Lit Channel Letters

Open Face Channel Letters – The open-face channel letter design is similar to the halo-lit sign, except that it contains no front panel or a protective covering. This makes the lighting element visible to people passing by, so they can see the light inside each letter.

Figure 4 - Open Faced Channel Letters

Combination Front/Reverse Lit Channel Letters –combine regular and reverse channel letters. These letters are illuminated from the front and give a halo effect on the back. Front/back-lit channel letters can add color by adding translucent vinyl to the face or changing the LED. Front/back-lit channel letters have a clear polycarbonate back to prevent animals from nesting inside the letter.

3. How Long Will Illuminated Channel Letter Signs Last?

Channel letters with high-quality LED light will last 30,000–50,000 hours. Some could even last longer. Take into account the lumen maintenance rating of the LED bulbs to get an idea of how long your LED-lit channel letter sign will endure. The bulbs in your LED-lit channel letter signage should last under 10 years if you run them for 10 to 12 hours daily.

4. How Much is the Cost of a Channel Letters?

10. What are the Basic Channel Letters Tips to Look Out for?

  • Avoid overestimating the trendiness of the sign market. Following trends can raise the bar, but trends may have a short lifespan, whereas your signage should endure the test of time. The market is dynamic, so various lettering styles pop up and go out of vogue frequently. Despite this, there are a few that remain steady in their desirability.
    • LED/neon lighting continues to be the leading choice for signs. As previously stated, there are two types of lettering: illuminated and non-illuminated. The Illuminated options consistently remain more popular than the non-illuminated ones.
    • Metal signs are more popular than acrylic signs, and for a good reason. They offer a more professional appearance and can be produced in various finishes. Metal is also more durable than acrylic, although both types of signs have their pros and cons.
  • High-quality signage is worth the investment, as it will last long. If you invest in a premium product, to begin with, you’ll never have to worry about its longevity or appearance.
