For a more dynamic effect, RGB/WRGB LEDs can be used. Based on our experience, if you require your reverse illuminated channel letters to have high brightness and a strong halo effect, we recommend using white LEDs with a color temperature of around 6000K or warm white LEDs of about 4000K. If you have specific requirements for the color temperature, please inform us in detail.

Depending on the type of sign, some must be installed off the wall, while others can be mounted closely. The installation methods vary depending on the building's facade and the sign's design, making collaboration with experienced installers crucial.

  • Plating is a method of coating a conductor with a layer of metal using the principle of electrolysis. It can make the stainless steel surface have different colors.

    Depending on the different signage details, the plating factory will use chemical plating or vacuum plating for plating operations. Please note that due to the complexity of the plating process, even if the exact same equipment, the same plating solution formulation and even the same plating time are used, the products produced in different batches will have slightly different color.

    Our factory does not have the production equipment for plating. If your sign production involves plating, the production time will be increased, usually an additional 3 working days.

    Please note:

    • If your sign is installed near the sea, it is not recommended to use the plating process for your sign, since the plating layer will be corroded by salt.
    • There is a high probability that the plating layer will be gradually oxidized, and the color will change to a certain extent.
  • We are a sign production factory in China and are currently unable to provide sign installation services outside of China.

  • Reverse channel letters can be installed in the vast majority of locations, indoors and outdoors, on marble walls, brick walls, concrete walls and even glass.

It is also possible to install the whole set of signage on the bracket or the backing box, and then hang it from the ceiling through stainless steel chains.

    We recommend that you provide a photo of where your sign will be installed so that we can advise you on the installation method that best suits your sign.

  • Yes, we can help you renew your LEDs, but because we are a sign factory in China, considering the expensive international shipping costs, maybe the cost of asking us to renew the LEDs for you will be much higher than finding an electrician locally to renew your LEDs.

    BTW, the LED technology is constantly updated, and new models of LEDs are constantly appearing. We cannot infer the cost of renewing LEDs for your reverse channel letters in a few years.
