Also known as reverse channel letters, Halo lit lettering creates a refined, contemporary look. Typically LEDs and sometimes neon creates the “halo” effect.” The installation process involves using spacers to create a gap between the rear of the letters and the surface from which it protrudes. In this way, the light will exit through the gap. The typeface is usually made from a plastic, acrylic, aluminum, or metal material. Depending on which material being used, it will affect the different degrees to communicate lighting sophistication.
Sam’s Sign completed a halo lit sign for Pacific Motor Inn located in the peninsula area. The surface on which the sign was installed was wrapped, using a scenic view of the ocean to set the tone for the light projection. The project definitely captured an alluring look.
