Frequently Asked Questions

What type of channel letter signs are available?

There is a wide variety of channel letters however here are the most popular ones.

Front-lit
Front-lit can be the most common channel letter signs or standard characters. They have an acrylic face, aluminum returns, backs, and trim caps.

These signs are totally customizable, and each letter has LED modules hidden within the acrylic face. Front-lit channel letters are ideal for attracting the attention of drivers passing by your business because they can be seen from afar. To make them easier to read from a distance, choosing bright LED illumination and thick fonts could be the way to go.

Halo Lit Channel Letters / Reverse Channel Letters
These types of signs are known by several names — Backlit Letters, Reverse Channel Letters, or Halo Lit Channel Letters.

This type of sign allows you to use different colours to show a contrast between the front and backlighting to give off a halo effect in the back.

 

Front and Backlit Channel Letters
One of its features is that the light shines through a translucent acrylic face within the letters or logo to draw attention night or day, offering great visibility over long distances that are easy to read.

The interior lights are generally LEDs (and therefore the halo colour) is typically white, but other colours are available, giving a glow in the front and a halo effect in the back that makes this type of lighting appear to float off the wall.

Another energy-efficient option is bulbs that also provide cost savings over other types of lighting.

What is the difference between a sign and a banner?

A banner is considered a sign.

The “sign” term is very broad since a sign can be any type of advertising displaying a slogan or advertisement and can be made with a variety of materials (Alupanel, plastic, coroplast, papers, etc.). While a commercial banner is typically printed on heavy-weight vinyl material, technically known as PVC or fabric material, and printed with aqueous (water-based), eco-solvent, or UV-curable inkjet inks.

Another characteristic is the use of hems, typically for more secure insertion of grommets or eyelets, which allow the banner to be fixed or hung especially when it is in big sizes.

 

What are the types of banners?

Hanging Banners

Hanging Banner Signs are the ones that are meant to be suspended over a wall or, in the case of hanging structures, from the ceiling. You can personalize a hanging banner to match your specific requirements. You can, for example, customize the visuals and messaging on the banner. There are plenty of size options, including width and height, as well as the material and finish.

Roll-up Banners / Retractable Banners

Retractable Signs banners are portable exhibition displays that are designed to carry an eye-catching graphic they are ideal for use at exhibitions, conferences, retail outlets, or in any public building. They are lightweight, easy to use, and are ideal for one person to carry and erect.

Tradeshow Banners

Tradeshow banners include a vast variety of types of banners such as Floor Standups, Vinyl Banners, Retractable Banners, Tabletop Signs, Flags, and any other that can be used on a tradeshow event.

Mesh Banners

Unlike regular vinyl banner signs which sometimes require wind slits cut into the vinyl if it is to be used outdoors, mesh banners are not breathable; it will actually allow air to pass through. This feature makes mesh banner printing ideal for installations in any outdoor location, even if it is in a quite windy area. And, since mesh won’t tear as vinyl does, they generally last much longer.
