Considering a channel letter sign to elevate your brand's visibility? You're on trend! Over the last year, we at Loumarc Signs have expertly installed more than 100 channel letter signs, and their popularity is only soaring. Dive into our easy-to-follow guide below and illuminate your knowledge on these standout signs!

So, what's the story with illuminated channel letter signs?

It's all about making a statement! These are not just signs; they're captivating three-dimensional letters that house a light source, shining brightly both day and night.

Why should you consider one for your business?

Investment insights: What's the cost?

Generally, you're looking at a range between $5,000 to a plush $20,000 and up. For instance, a strip mall retail store might spend between $4,000 to $7,000. Remember, it all boils down to your chosen size and features.


Recently, our skilled Loumarc Signs crew set up two channel letter blade signs, each priced at $30,000. A blade sign is artfully designed to stand perpendicular to the oncoming traffic, ensuring maximum visibility.

Channeling the Lights: Types of Illumination

When it comes to illuminating your business, there are two primary choices: Front Lit and Reverse Lit.

Setting up the Stage: Mounting Methods

Channel letters need a stage, and how you set that stage can change the entire feel:

The Heartbeat of Signs: Neon or LED?

These are the pulses that bring your signs to life!

Colors and Their Stories

Your brand colors are not just hues; they're stories. However, remember: the medium can tweak the narrative. Want an exact match to your media campaigns? Some illuminations handle color fidelity better than others.

Crafting Perfection: The Loumarc Signs' Mantra

Every sign has its nuances. The right brightness ensures you shine but doesn't overshadow. Local regulations might have a say, so understanding them is key. That's where expertise comes into play. With Loumarc Signs, you don’t just get a sign; you get a seasoned guide to navigate the illuminating journey of brand visibility, ensuring your sign stands out impeccably—both day and night.

How Long Do Illuminated Channel Letter Signs Last?

The core, made of sturdy aluminum, stands resilient. Why aluminum? Because it's the titan of the sign industry: lightweight, rustproof, and invincible against the elements. Plus, its sleek metallic finish oozes professionalism.

Now, for the heartbeats of our signs, the LEDs. They're set to glow for 13 years or more. The acrylic visage of our face-lit letters, though, like any beauty, may fade a tad after 8-10 radiant years. They might need a little power boost, say every 3-5 years. Fear not, with Loumarc, we've got you covered with our three-year warranty.

Loumarc's Gold Standard: The 3-Year Sign Warranty

Proud of our craftsmanship, we stand by every sign we create. Our three-year pledge ensures:

A footnote: our high-output lamps are backed for two radiant years. If a hiccup arises, just remember: Loumarc is here to mend or swap the troubled parts, no charge!

Lost in Options? We're Your Compass

With a sea of choices, steering right can be daunting. Enter your sign guru—our consultants. They blend your desires with practicality. Larry Gliozzi, the founder of Loumarc Signs, suggests a chat over some pivotal questions:

  1. What are you trying to accomplish with your business signage?
  2. What is your sign budget?
  3. What are the sign regulations for the location, including size restrictions?
  4. What exactly do you want on the sign? Do you need to include a logo?
  5. What is the building’s façade made of? Is the surface corrugated or smooth?


Direct-to-building channel letters are all the rage today. But here's the catch: this isn't a task for the faint-hearted. It demands not just attaching the sign but threading and finessing wiring right inside the structure. Now, think of an indomitable “I” beam obstructing installation or an unsuspecting office innocently sitting right behind your sign spot. Yup, the plot thickens!

But fret not, for not all heroes wear capes – some wield tools and wear Loumarc logos. While several sign businesses might flinch at the challenge, we roll up our sleeves and dive right in. Our crew doesn't just “install”; they craft, taking utmost care to ensure your business and its premises face minimal disturbance.
