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.
Sam’s Signs recently completed a full, matte finish, custom vehicle wrap on a Tesla Model X. The Gun Metal matte metallic, in Avery vinyl gave the Tesla an almost futuristic look, given the gullwing doors we worked with. The Tesla aesthetic by nature is a simple, modern, and classy look. Totally transforming from a glossy black to a mattified finish gave this Tesla a whole new, original vibe.
We offer matte, and glossy finishes, and art/advertising display on any canvas you might bring to us. We hope to transform your canvas into you personal visuals and broadcast them for your audience. Help us bring your vision to life.
