“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!
The sign on your business is the first thing customers can see. If you are in a shopping mall, these are likely to be channel letters. A great set of channel letters pulls traffic through your door.

Channel letters are letters that light up. These are made of Aluminum with acrylic faces.
The “Channel” in the name is for the shape and construction of the letter that channels or directs the light out the front. These are familiar to you because they are on nearly all the retail shopping mall businesses. The reason for this is they are effective. They attract customers in the front door. They are also required be the property manager of most all the shopping mall locations in the United States

In the “good old days” neon was the light source of choice. That was back as far as the 1920s. Today, it is all about LEDs.
Neon was a difficult process, it involved different chemicals to obtain different colors. While beautiful, it also was source of toxic waste. Maintenance on Neon also is expensive. LEDs are the lighting source of choice today. They last up to 40,000 hours and require little to no maintenance. It is much lower voltage as well. So, it is safer to use, last longer, uses less electrical power, is better for the environment and cost less in maintenance
You may be wondering why dimensional letters are in a channel letter page! It is simple, Channel letters look “dimensional during the day, and light up at night.
In the evening and nighttime, the information needs to be immediate and pull the customer in. Saying too much diminishes your impact. But during the day, a much higher level of communication is possible. We mix dimensional letters with channel letters to get the best of both worlds. This maximized the impact day or night.
We will cover this in a different page, but there are different lighting methods for channel letters.
The most common and the most impactful is the front face Illuminated channel letter. It is the brightest, the easiest to read and is the mainstay of retail shopping mall use. There are back lite letters, called halo channel letters. These have special uses, and you may benefit from this type of letter. There are also front and back lite letters. Channel letters run from 6” to 6’, but if you want a 5” letter – Carlsbad Signs can do that too. Carlsbad Signs is a manufacture and we make it all
