Injection Molded Channel Letters

About these Letters:

Each Injection Molded Channel Letter is perfect due to the precision toolmaking of the molds used to make this product. While only 2 type styles are available, they can be ordered in nearly any combination of can and face colors. When combined with the EDGE-GLO face (Red Only), this letter is 100% injection molded and ready to ship within 2 days. For ordering, choose style, letter size, copy, can color, face color, trim color and specify wit or without LEDs.

Sign 2000 Injection Molded Channel Letters are the perfect way to cost- effectively illuminate your sign. These 5” deep letters blend in seamlessly with other fabricated channel letters. The only difference is, that these letters will not dent, corrode, or show adverse signs of weathering. In the event that a catastrophic event does happen to the face, Sign 2000’s lifetime guarantee allows you to replace the face without needing a measurement of the existing can as each letter is exactly like the first. The cans are made of Artek, a space-age plastic that is impact resistant also passes all UL flamability requirements for illuminated signage for both high voltage and low voltage applications.
Now Available with LEDs

  • 8 Standard Translucent Acrylic Face Colors

Formed Channel Letters

About these Letters:

The new low-profile look of GemLite Formed Channel Letters are sure to make you happy. The new slim-line design with near invisible can and trimless face, allows channel letters to go places they have never been before. Now channel letters can go indoor, as part of POP displays, behind front desk areas, or anywhere you want illumination without the large 5” protrusion of a bent aluminum channel can. Aside from its sleek looks, the face material of the GemLite Formed Channel Letters has been specially formulated to work with LED wavelengths to promote the best diffusion and light translucency for eye-popping brightness.

Each GemLite Formed Channel Letter comes with an opaque white can approximately 3/4” deep and a corresponding face made from a translucent, LED compatible (built in diffusion) face color. The face can be made either with a flat, round, prismatic or other sculptured profile to match your customer’s needs. The light visible to bystanders will be emitted not only from the face but also from the sidewalls of the face portion of the letter. Round face letters particularly have a striking look using this manufacturing technique. Some customers have also accented GemLite letters by applying a translucent vinyl onto the surface of trans-white GemLite faces so the face emits desired color and the light through the sides of the letter face create a halo effect for the sign.

8 Standard Translucent Face Colors Specifically Formulated for LED Illumination

Opaque White GemLite Channel Cans

Opaque white cans are required for UL recognition as the material has been specifically identified by Lot#, material thickness, and composition. This opaque white reflects more light through the faces than other colors, and will also prevent most LED lighting systems from showing through the can side-walls–unless the LED modules are placed within 1” of the letter return. If a different can color is required or 100% opacity is required on the can, Sign 2000 will charge an additional 15% to paint the can exteriors.

Note on LED usage:

GemLite Formed Channel Letters are UL recognized components for LED installations. The renewable resource plastics used in the face and cans meets flammability rating of 1, fire rating of 94HB and can be used with virtually any low voltage, low profile lighting system that does not require a metal can for a heat sink. These letters are not for use with any neon or other lighting system of greater than 24V.

GemLite Formed Channel Panels

Sign 2000 GemLite Channel Panels are the best way to add illumination to letters as small as 1” in height while maintaining a simple way to design, manufacture & install. Channel panels are the perfect compliment for ATM machines, POP advertising, logo creation to use in conjunction with other GemLite letters—or just about anywhere a beautiful, durable LED illuminated sign is required. Due to the physical properties of our CAB material, large panel faces will require sufficient copy to prevent warping.

Included in the price of the Gem-Lite Channel Panels are a face with 1 translucent LED color and 1 opaque painted background color and an opaque white can. For multi-color applications customers may order translucent white panel faces and apply translucent vinyl to achieve effects as seen in the “24H” installation. These panels can be ordered in conjunction with standard or custom letter styles to complete nearly any installation.

Not for use with high heat and/or high voltage lighting systems. Use low profile LEDs to light.
