Ever wonder where channel letters come from?  Signs for San Diego does national chains and wholesale to the trade.  Here is a great example. This sign is for a sign company near San Francisco. They sold the sign and we made it.

Channel letters are the illuminated signs you see in every strip mall.  During COVID the demand hit rock bottom, but today, we are making these as fast as we can.At Signs for San Diego, we provide customized channel letter signs. We start with the back of each letter. We cut these out of sheet stock using a state-of-the-art CNC router. Then we bend raw Aluminum strips called coils into the sides of each letter. After the shape is formed we cut the “face” or the translucent part and fit it to the letter.  Add LEDs and a power supply, a UL label and you have channel letters

In this case we also have a “Pan”. This is a flat thin box that ties all the channel letters together. The entire assembly also in painted inhouse. The product is involved, takes experts and specific equipment to complete. Very few sign companies do this manufacturing, and even fewer will ship. This sign shipped 600 miles north and was installed last month.
