“If I could give more than five (5) stars, I would! My experience with Signs for San Diego was nothing less than exceptional from start to finish. As a Project Manager for one of Gable’s largest clients, I expect our vendors to deliver high-quality product and/or services.”
We got both of our restaurant signs from them, and we couldn’t be happier! They were affordable, had incredible customer service, and the quality of their product matches their customer service! They even took care of some of our street light issues at no additional charge since they were already on-site with the lift!
They have a new customer for life!
Halo Channel Letters Reverse Channel Letters light from the back of the letter.
Carlsbad Signs makes these. Halo Channel Letters add a feel of class to lighted signs. These are used to differentiate the signs from others. They are seen on churches, synagogues, resorts, legal offices, restaurants, high end retailers and others that wish to stand out against a sea of standard channel letter sets. These are the “Cadillac” of channel letters. Do you need halo channel letters? We can help, Carlsbad Signs makes these letters every day.
Channel letters are illuminated letters. These letters are constructed from Aluminum with an acrylic back with LEDs mounted and facing inward.
The light bounces off the inside and back out the back of the letter. This floods light on the wall behind the letter. One can see these on many businesses. They are different from front face lighting or the normal channel letter. These are used because they attract attention. They attract prospects and customers through your front door.
We can make a set for your too. Unlike normal channel letters many of these are made by hand.
That is the automation we have to make a normal channel letter does not work well with this type of letter. Each side or return is MIG aluminum welded to the face. The backs are clear and have LEDs mounted. They require standoffs to creates a gap between the letter and the wall. The distance controls how far the light spreads out. The whole letter is rather special.
It starts with YOU! You are the foremost expert on your business. What the idea customer looks like, their “persona”.
Once we understand this, we make some intelligent estimations of what they will respond to. We take this information and combine it with Carlsbad Signs’ extensive knowledge and experience to create a fusion of your goals, you identity and your brand with the best designs, the best manufacturing and the best installation methods. The result is the best sign for your business. A sign that will drive your business to higher levels, and better profitability
Halo letters can be made in many fonts, from 6” to 6’, with a lot of variations. In many ways the letters are mostly limited by our imaginations. However, there are a few constraints. The distance from the letter to the wall is important. The texture and consistency of the wall is critical. The face can be a solid or light up. The letters cannot be too “pointy” or the LEDs will not fit. So, there are some considerations.
10 years ago, there was still a lot of Neon. Today nearly 100% of the channel letter lighting is from LEDs. LEDs come in various colors.
For Halo letters a white light is not required, Red and Blue are very popular. This can give the letters a unique and sticking light at night. Also, LEDs are sealed against weather. Halo Letters are not able to protect the light source as well as front lit letters. With the new LED technology this is not a problem. The wiring must exit the back. It is more exposed than a front lit channel letter set. Also, the standoffs can be seen from directly below the letters. All of these issues and the hand build means halo letters look more expensive…and they are.
Halo letters are called “Halo” because they form a halo of light around them. But this is not the only name you find used. Reverse channel letters simply means the light exist in the reverse direction. Back lit channel letters also is used.
