Nothing pops like bright lettering on a dark night. But, depending on your business, vibrant, glowing letters may not be a good fit for your brand.

Fortunately, when it comes time to select a lighting option for your signage, there are several choices available.

Before making a decision regarding the ideal sign for your business, it’s important to consider specific factors. The location of your business, the building your company is located in, and the message you want to convey to your customers are all important elements to think about.

Below, we have outlined three different lighting methods.

Channel Letters

These custom-made signs are composed of aluminum cans that are covered with a translucent material. Then, LED lights create an illuminating effect, lighting up logos and lettering from either the front or back. For more information about channel letters, check out our past post.

Browse the gallery below for examples of channel letters:

Gooseneck Light

There are options for lighting up your sign that use an external light source. The result is eye-catching, but more subtle than channel letters. This option works well for carved signs and dimensional lettering.


Lighted Cabinet Signs

In some cases, your brand may call for a boldly lit sign, but channel letters may not be appropriate. An alternative option is to use a lighted cabinet sign, like the photo below:
