Storefront & Building Channel Letters

Increase your location’s visibility with logos and letters that stand out.

Visible from long distances, storefront and building channel letters and logos from Image360 RVA are a popular way to identify a retail store, restaurant, shopping mall, office or other building.

Raised letter signs can be seen by motorists and others much more easily than two-dimensional signs. The added element of depth along with width and height makes these logo signs stand out when compared to flat alternatives!

Most of these exterior letters for buildings are built of metal, while others are made of plastic or combination of both materials. Typically, they range from two to three inches deep to as many as five or six inches deep. Of course, as custom signage, you can specify almost any depth, size, shape and color in raised letter signs!

Lighting storefront and building channel letters

The natural shading and shapes of 3D channel letter signs from Image360 RVA catch the eye without illumination. That said, most prefer lighted sign letters for even greater visibility at dawn, dusk, nighttime and on overcast days. Of course, nothing communicates “We’re open for business” like an illuminated sign! Here are popular ways to light storefront and building channel letters:

  • Back lit channel letters: Sometimes termed “halo lit” letters or “reverse channel letters,” they are lighted from behind, usually with LEDs (light emitting diodes). Positioned slightly away from a wall, the lighting gives them a distinctive halo effect!
  • Edgelit channel letters: These have translucent sides from which light is emitted. Or, the light can be provided from an external source around the letters.
  • Front lit channel letters: These are often called “standard” channel letters or LED channel letters. These raised letter signs have an open or translucent face. Light — usually from LEDs or neon — shines through the face.
  • Front/back lit channel letters: These emit light from both the front and back of the letters. As a result, front/back lit channel letters often have a dynamic and dramatic appearance!

Mounting storefront and building channel letters

Whatever your choice in channel letter types from Image360 RVA, they are typically installed two ways:

  • Flush mounted channel letters: These channels letters are attached directly to the façade of the building.
  • Raceway mounted channel letters: Here, the channel letters are affixed to a rectangular structure called a “raceway.” The raceway is then mounted to the building. Raceway mounting has the advantage of drilling fewer holes in the building.

what our customers say

5 Star Rating 5 Star Rating!

I recently worked with Kelly All to develop a unique exhibit for a large event. She was extremely patient and responsive as we explored many options before settling on a “one of a kind” display. She helped us work through several issues that arose along the way with prompt, courteous service. The final product was truly amazing and well received with several meeting attendees asking for more information about the exhibit. Kelly (and Katie Pearson) go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service.

Kelly All was great to work with…very professional, great communicator, quick response time, and very attentive. Their design team and installation teams are equally as good - all were professional and dedicated to producing high quality work. We are extremely pleased with our final product in the new space!

I've been doing work with Image360 long before we started Spoken4 - we started working together when I was working for a local ad agency. The team at Image360 was (and still is) so helpful, when we started the business, it was a no-brainer who to turn to for our signage. They are much more than a typical vendor. They are thought partners, colleagues, and friends. The work is always high quality. Our signage is our main means of marketing Spoken4 and our ad clients, so the quality of production is critical. The relationship we've built with Image360 is one you can only hope to have with other businesses - we trust them with every project, recommend them to other businesses, and look forward to many more years of work together.
