We do illuminated channel letters signage made to order in Calgary
Channel letter term refers to the individually mounted signage letter fabricated using a "can" construction (a hollow U-section body, with a fitting cap).
Channel shape term refers to essentially the same type of signage when it is not a letter, but a shape (e.g. swoosh, shield, logo element).
Sample photo above of front lit channel letters shows how faces with vinyl graphics are translucent permitting the light to pass through.
Returns term refers to the plastic or sheet metal that is bent around the perimeter of a letter's face to form its sides and give the 3D depth.
The back of the channel letter can is fitted with LED modules (for a front-lit effect). Or, the LED's can be placed oriented toward wall (for halo effect).
LED-lit channel letters are installed on building's fascia, with concealed wiring, either flush-mounted (front- lit effect), or with a gap (halo effect).
Another elegant yet more economical configuration is when the channel letters are pre-installed on a raceway (in our shop), thus reducing the site labour.
Properly manufactured channel letters should not have "hot spots" (term refers to areas on the face where illumination shows more intense than around it).
For Calgary and area we supply and install commercial LED signs letters front-lit, back-lit, and glow around aka halo effect.

- Back Lit (also known as Reverse Lit or Halo Lit) Channel Letters and Channel Shapes / Logos: the LED lights are pointed toward the back of the sign, i.e. toward the wall they go onto, thus the light will have a glowing effect; light is diffused around the letters, around the back area, and no light comes through the front or face of the letters; they have welded or notched sign cans).
- Front and Back Lit Channel Letters and Channel Shapes / Logos: the lighting effect is a combination of the lighting effects of the two types mentioned above.
About the LED light modules used: in the signage industry LEDs are the 21st century modern illumination solution, offering substantial advantages over fluorescent tubes and bent neon, such as better energy efficiency, easier to handle during the sign manufacturing process, and to install at customer's location (not nearly as fragile as the neon tube, and reduces the overall weight of the illuminated sign by more than 30 percent). Transformers are included (enclosed in the sign can where possible, otherwise will be mounted at site in the bulkhead).
Channel letter and shapes produced by C.S.B. can have any shape (like font type), any size, and any colors for the face and the sides (also known as "returns"). All our illuminated signs are custom designed and produced to Client's wants, after consultations, and design (layout) approval process.
