About Acrylic Front and Backlit Channel Letters

Acrylic Front and Backlit Channel Letters

Acrylic front and backlit channel letters are a type of front and backlit channel letters. Light sources, LED by default now, are placed in individual 3D CNC engraved acrylic letter shell and separately internally illuminated. The middle part of the return is painted opaque,the front surface and the return near the back panel of the letter shell are illuminated. The letters, numbers and logo are all can be made as acrylic front and backlit channel letters, with high visible by day and radiant by night, the acrylic front and backlit channel letters provide lasting appeal, strong 3D effect, high brightness and long life time. They are ideal signage for most exterior and interior commercial businesses, whether for advertising or wayfinding, including:

Bar, Coffee Store, Shop, Office, Restaurant, Hotel, Gas Station, Car Wash Store, Trade Show, Pharmacy, Theater, ATM, Cinema, Corporate, SPA, Shopping Center, Dental Office, Law Office, etc.
Church, Hospital, Museum, Library, Stadium, Laboratory, University, etc.
Wall, Lobby, Reception, etc.
Building, Storefront, Architectural, etc.
  • Many cities and landlords have requirements for signs, such as installation, construction of business signs for safety, sign size, signs type, brightness, color temperature of LED, etc. Before you decide to order custom signs, please be sure to understand clearly to avoid unnecessary loss.
  • If your signage needs to be used outdoors, please be sure to inform before production. The signage needs to be weather-resistant, improve waterproof performance, and need to use materials suitable for outdoor environments. Similarly, if your sign needs to be used in a marine environment, in areas with frequent heavy rain, in areas with extreme high/low temperature, or in areas with strong ultraviolet rays, please inform in advance too, to avoid the signage not available in your area.
  • It is recommended to set up a weak current box with cooling holes within 5 meters (about 16 feet 4 inches) of the installation position of the sign to place the AC transformer. If the distance is too far, the DC line loss will be too high, which will affect the service life of the LED and the brightness of the signage. The AC transformer will generate heat when it is working, if it cannot dissipate heat in time, it will seriously affect the service life of the AC transformer.


  • The letters are separated
  • The middle part of the return is painted opaque,the front surface and the return near the back panel of the letter shell are illuminated

Important Data

Minimum width of the strokes of the letters
Minimum height of the letters
Default thickness
Production time
In 15 working days by default

Letters with too thin strokes or too small letters are difficult to install enough LEDs evenly inside the letter shell, unless custom PCB LEDs are used but this will drastically increase the production cost, so it is impossible to obtain uniform light up effect or good brightness, then the display effect will not be ideal. For letters with thin strokes or small letters, if you must make them as illuminated signs, then it is recommended to make the letters as acrylic channel letters or light box signs. Acrylic channel letters use 3D CNC engraved acrylic letter shells, and the return of the letters can be made into bevels. Make the LED have enough installation space, and at the same time keep the front of the letters with thin strokes or small letter size, but generally speaking, it is recommended to make as light box signs, the LED will be installed in the backing box.

Hanging Installation
Use stainless steel rope, stainless steel chain or stainless steel tube to hang from the ceiling or the bracket.
Raceway Installation
Raceway is a track of metal tubing that carries and hides wires and cables on the surface of a wall. The signage will be installed on it first, and then the whole thing will be installed on the wall. Raceway installation can reduce the holes that need to drill on the backing wall, easy installation and maintenance.
Wall Mounted Installation
Signs are installed on the backing wall directly, using stud bolts by default.
  • Except for large letters and signs that require professional equipment such as scissor lift to complete the installation, the installation of signs in most cases is relatively simple. But we still recommend that you hire a professional sign installer to install, only in this way can ensure that the sign is installed safely and correctly, and ensure the display effect of the sign.
  • If you can't find a suitable sign installer locally, please tell us the sign installation address, and we can help you to contact our partners near you. At present, we can provide such services to the vast majority of customers in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and other regions.


Generally speaking, the height of a letter has a certain proportional relationship with its viewing distance, that is, the viewing distance of a letter is usually 100 to 120 times the height of the letter. For example, if you want your sign to be visible from 100 feet away, the letters need to be at least 10 inches high, or if you want your signage to be visible from 100 meters away, the letters need to be about 100 mm high.


Working temperature
-30 ~ +70℃ (-22 ~ 158℉)
  • In three years, if it is not the man-included damage, we will send you the damage part.
  • After 2 year, because of the half-life, the LED lighting would be weaker. In order to keep the effect of the signs, we suggest changing the LED lights when you feel the brightness could not reach your requirement.

  • We are a sign manufacturer in China.

  • By default, we use DHL for transportation, and we can also use express companies such as UPS and FEDEX. These express companies can transport goods to many places of the world.

  • If your local or the lord has some specific requirements for the signage, please send these specific requirements to us. Our signage products have UL certification.

  • Under normal circumstances, excluding the necessary communication time, the approximate timeline is as follows:

    • Detailed design: 1-3 working days
    • Production time: within 15 working days
    • Shipping: DHL takes about a week

    So it takes about 25-30 days total.

    If you order a lot of signage, or are close to major holidays, such as China National Day, New Year’s Day, Christmas, and Spring Festival, it may increase.

  • Each of our quotations has fully taken into account the discounts we can offer. If you only produce 1 set of signs, basically there will be no discounts. Of course, if you order a lot of signs, a dozen sets, dozens of sets, or even hundreds of sets, these can significantly reduce the production cost. Anyway, if you have any question about the price, please contact our salesman, we will try our best to give you the best price.

  • You can always find a cheaper supplier, but there are usually some reasons for being cheap. We prefer that you consider the quality and service life of the signs. After all, if you have to replace a set of signs in a few months, even if you do not consider the production cost, the installation cost also would be a lot of money to point out. Anyway, if you have any question about the price, please contact our salesman, we will try our best to give you the best price.

  • We can produce almost all kinds of signs, but because we are a sign maker in China, you have to consider the shipping cost if you buy from us. For many cheap business signs, the production is very convenient, even if most costs in the United States will be higher than that in China, but once the expensive international shipping costs are considered, it is generally cheaper to buy locally in the United States. For such a signage case, we will recommend customers to buy locally. Of course, sourcing from China can be a good option if you’re ordering such a large quantity that international shipping isn’t the main cost, as many American advertising signage companies do.

  • Our signage products have the UL certification and fully meet the US standards, so there will be no difference in use. Specifically, some of the processes may be different, because different factories will have different equipment, and the process might also be different. In addition, the row material may be different, the biggest difference is the thickness of the material. We are a sign factory in China. In China, the unit of thickness is the metric unit, while the US uses the English unit. For example, the 1/2-inch thick material used in the signs made locally in the United States is not available here, and usually uses 10mm (0.39″) or 15mm(0.59″).

  • We usually use vector design files in ai, cdr, eps, svg formats, vector design drawing files in PDF format are also available. If your design drawing is made by AutoCAD, please provide the version of AutoCAD 2007.

  • Very sorry, we suggest you contact your local designer to design your logo from scratch. This design work requires a lot of communication work, and we are in China, the time difference and language differences will make the communication very difficult. We can advise you or help you modify your logo design so it can be produced.

  • We use PayPal to accept payment by default, but our quotation only includes production costs and shipping costs. PayPal will charge a transfer fee of 4.4%+usd$0.3, which will be borne by you.

    Since PayPal accepts credit card payments, you are free to pay with credit cards.

    We also accept TT.

  • Yes, we accept credit card payment. In fact, we use PayPal to accept payment by default, but our quotation only includes production costs and shipping costs. PayPal will charge a transfer fee of 4.4%+usd$0.3, which will be borne by you.

  • Yes, we use PayPal to accept your credit card payments. However, our quotation only includes production costs and shipping costs. PayPal will charge a transfer fee of 4.4%+usd$0.3, which will be borne by you.

  • If you haven’t sent out payment, you can cancel your order at any time and you won’t be asked to pay anything. If you have sent out payment, if we have started the work, including detailed design, production, etc., you will be required to pay the cost that has occurred, if you paid with PayPal fee, then the corresponding PayPal handling fee will also be borne by you.

  • Yes, we provide color matching service, it’s free. We use the Pantone color card for color matching by default, you only need to provide the Pantone value of the color, but generally speaking, the amount of paint required for the production of a set of signs is very small, which is not suitable for using a dedicated color matching machine. Therefore, in most cases we use manual color correction, which is only a simulation of Pantone colors, and we cannot guarantee an exact match.

  • We lovingly pack every order to ensure that your signs arrive in pristine condition. UPS assures us that their delivery personnel take every precaution to handle your package with care.

  • Unfortunately, DHL and UPS won’t deliver to a P.O. box, so we’ll need a physical street address.

  • Unless the installation of large signs will involve the use of professional engineering equipment, the installation of signs is not complicated in most cases. However, we still recommend that you hire a professional sign installer who can make your sign look better, stronger, and more safe, especially if your signs are illuminated signs.

  • We are very sorry, we are a sign factory in China and currently do not have any offices and branches in other countries and regions, so we cannot provide you with installation services. But we have partners all over the world, and if you can’t find the right installer, we can help you find one.

  • Usually the maintenance of the signage is very simple, just wipe off the dust with a soft cloth dipped in clean fresh water. Never use organic cleaners, especially if your signs are painted or electroplated. In addition, for illuminated signs, placing the AC transformer in an environment with good ventilation conditions can effectively improve the service life of the AC transformer.

  • For most LED lighted signs, it is possible to open the signs and renew the LED. However, we recommend that you find a local electrician to do it for you, as it will involve wiring and other work. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

They are really professional and know how to deal with customers. Highly impressed. Thank you very much.
