The Options

Channel Letters come in 3 basic forms: Front Lit, Back Lit, and Open Face. Front Lit Channel Letters are the typical form of Channel Letter. They have solid, plex faces and are illuminated from within.

The second form of Channel Letters, Back Lit, are also called "Halo-Lit" Channel Letters. These are basically Front Lit Channel Letters, without faces and reversed, so that the internal illumination shines onto the wall behind. This leaves a glow around the letters, or "Halo" effect.

Sign Cost Considerations

The third form, Open Face Channel Letters, are one of the few forms of channel letters that still use Neon Tubing as a form of illumination. They lack plex faces, so that the Neon is exposed. The final effect is beautiful and eye-catching, but this form of Channel Letter requires more service than others.
