What are Marquee Channel Letters?

A marquee sign is a type of permanent signage that serves as the main signage for your business. Suited to storefronts, commercial locations like offices, and even industrial locations, the signage lets your customers and clients know who you are.

Marquee channel letters are a unique type of marquee sign, bringing three-dimensional depth to increase visibility and impact

Unlike standard printed or vinyl board signs, Marquee channel letters are made up of individual structures that pop out from the wall or custom sign backing. Each letter is three-dimensional and can be made from aluminum, acrylic, or a combination of the two. Because marquee channel letters are three-dimensional, they have room inside for lighting, creating an impactful glowing effect at night or in low-light conditions.

Fabrication of Exterior Marquee Signage

It’s the unique fabrication of exterior marquee signage that gives each individual letter its signature look. There are several key elements of exterior marquee signage. Understanding these elements can give you context on why these signs look like they do and create the kind of impact that isn’t possible with other types of signage.

  • The front face of exterior marquee signage is typically made from acrylic and can be in a colour of your choosing. The face of your marquee channel letterscan be made from aluminum, with a finish of your choosing. However, the letters must then be halo lit and not front lit. The aluminum used for exterior marquee signage can be finished to look like stainless steel, bronze, chrome, gold, and other metals.
  • The sides of channel letters are known as the “return”. These can be made from aluminum or acrylic, depending on the look that you’re going for. Depth can be customized to suit your preference, although the overall size of your exterior marquee signage will typically suggest a depth. For example, larger faces typically look better with a deeper return of 5” or 8”. If you’re working with smaller letters, then the depth could go as low as 3”. This is a fully customizable option so there are no hard limits, outside of the space that you have to work with. We’ll help you to determine the best dimensions to make your letters stand out.
  • Lighting is also something to consider when installing marquee channel letters. In most cases, the light source will be integrated into each letter, so every element of the sign will be independently illuminated. There are other effects available, such as backlighting where the channel letters are solid, with a light source behind them, creating a halo effect.

One of the advantages of custom Marquee letters in Toronto is that you can fully customize the aesthetic to suit your business needs. The font, size, shape, colour of the letters, and colour/style of the lighting can all be customized for your needs.
