The Versatility Of Channel Letter Signs For Los Angeles Businesses


At Dave's Signs, we understand the importance of selecting the perfect sign for your business. We also know that a sign is one of the most important aspects of branding and identifying your business, store, restaurant or commercial property and the look and style of the sign sends a message.

Through the years we have provided custom made signs to all types of commercial properties all over Los Angeles. Each one is carefully crafted and uniquely styled to provide the right look and atmosphere for the property. While we do provide a full selection of all types of signs, and some of our most often requested are channel letter signs.

The Design Type
The vast majority of signs you will see today are channel letter signs. They are created by individual, three-dimensional letters made of either metal or plastics. Many of these types of signs contain lighting either as a backlighting or as neon elements within the channel letters.

Since the letters are raised up and off the background, either in the form of a full sign or directly onto a building or a background, they are eye-catching. They also cast a shadow, which provides added dimension to the sign that changes based on the time of day and the location of the sun.

When neon letters or background illumination is included, the effect is very dramatic for evening displays. These are very popular for restaurants, nightclubs, taverns and bars, or any business that has late hours.


Since the letters or of the sign or the sign itself is created to order, there is no limit to the style selection for each of the letters or the design elements.

We offer standard serif and sans-serif fonts that look great for any type of commercial property. For specific types of styles elements, we can craft the letters and design elements to suit a theme.

Of course, the colors selected for the sign will also add to the theme and look. Classic channel letters in black with white neon and backlighting really stand out, while exotic colors and metallic sign lettering adding a touch of the unique and interesting.

With our channel letter signs, a Los Angeles business can create the right exterior sign to highlight their business. We can work with your team to develop the perfect look, providing a timelessly beautiful sign that is ideal for your space.

Superior Graphic Design for our Custom Signs

Graphic design is not all about artistic skill; many outside factors influence how well the sign will work in its location. We are familiar with these outside influences, so we set out to develop each design to stand out in beauty and function, given each unique location. Whether you are purchasing a pylon sign, backlit channel letter sign, neon sign, or any custom sign, we use our creative graphic design talents to make it stand out. Contact us for questions about graphic design and signs.
