Storefront signs: The best types and where to buy

Storefront sign of College Park designed by Envision Orlando

A storefront sign is any sign mounted on or around a building’s facade. You’ll see a variety of these around Orlando, Florida.

And, while there are many types of storefront signs that come in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and styles, all storefront signs are designed with the same three basic goals in mind:

  • Promote sales, products, and services
  • Build brand authority
  • Provide landmarks for wayfinding

For the best storefront signs in Orlando, partner with Envision Orlando.

Storefront Channel Letter Signs & Lit Shape Signs

Channel letters are one of the most popularly used storefront signs in Orlando. These are individually made three-dimensional letters put together to create a sign. Usually, these are used outdoors, mounted on a store or building façade.

There are four main types of channel letters:

  1. Front-Lit Channel Letter Signs: These signs have LED lights installed within the letter frame, creating a sign that glows from within. Front-lit channel letters are usually the standard option you can get.
  1. Backlit Channel Letter Signs: These have LED lights installed behind each letter. When the sign is mounted away from the wall, it creates a warm glow around the sign. This halo effect is very attractive, especially at night.
  1. Front & Backlit Channel Letters & Logos: This is a combination of the first two types. The vibrance you get is perfect for an eye-catching sign. From day until night people are sure to take notice.
  1. Open-Faced Channel Letters: Channel letters usually have an acrylic front face. However, for these signs, the acrylic is removed, exposing the LED lights from within. The exposed LED lights create neon channel letters.

Custom Channel Letter Sign Styles

Aside from the main types of channel letters, there are also other styles you can choose. Envision Orlando ensures you have the right options that work best for your business in FL.

We offer various illumination options. For instance, you can choose different colored LED lights for your front-lit/reverse channel letter signs. This can elevate your sign and make it better for branding.

Contour channel letters are also an option. Instead of individual letters put together, these signs are designed with all the letters connected. They’re great for signs that are too small to make into individual channel letters.

Self-contained letters, on the other hand, are similar to cabinet signs. However, they are thinner and shaped according to your design. These have LED lights installed within, making your sign glow.

Why Choose LED Channel Letters for Your Storefront

When choosing a sign for your storefront, it’s important to go for one that makes your FL business distinct. If you look like the other businesses around you, it’s easy to fade into the background.

Here’s why channel letters are a popular storefront sign choice in Orlando:

  1. These signs are highly customizable. This means having a sign that matches your brand. With a customized sign, you’re sure to start building brand awareness at the first point of contact.
  2. Block channel letters increase your visibility. These bright, vibrant signs are great when you want your sign to be seen, even from a distance. Day and night, customers are sure to spot your sign amongst a crowd of other businesses.
  3. They’re long-lasting. Enjoy the rewards of your storefront sign investment for years with channel letters. They are made with hardwearing materials like aluminum and acrylic, perfect for outdoor use. These signs also use LED lights which can last a long time without burning out.

    Loved working with envision Orlando! If you want it done right the first time I highly recommend them. They were nothing but outstanding the entire process. They took my vision and brought it to life. And they gave me input and ideas that I would have never thought of!

    Stephen and Todd at Envision are the definition of professional! Envision handled all of our small business needs from signage to custom vinyl lettering for our product and more. They also helped with logo adjustments which helped our overall image that we were looking for. Every question or request was answered with a "yes, no problem!" and they were extremely flexible and helpful with scheduling while still getting the job done quickly and efficiently. We had spoken to several shops prior to choosing envision and found them to be extremely competitive and affordable. We are very pleased with our choice and would absolutely recommend them!
    Worked with them before so not quite sure what changed in their customer service but I contacted them for a sign and have been out on the back burner for months.Today I asked again and they said they couldn’t do the sign after waiting for so long and them never returning calls. I’m super disappointed in my experience.
    Stephen was amazing to work with and his work was 10/10.
