Digital Prints on Front Lit Channel Letters
Each sign letter face is a digital print front lit channel letter. To create the border they wanted, we did something a little different from typical front-lit channel letters. Usually, we put trimcap around the flat sign face and attach it to the return. This incidentally creates a border around the letters but it’s only about 1/8″ at most. 10 Speed Coffee wanted a thick, black border around each letter. In order to obtain this, we decided to put a retainer on the letters. A retainer is usually used for a cabinet sign when the face needs to be held in place and the sign is just one big box. Making retainers for each face made it possible for us to give each letter a 1/2″ thick border. The returns and the retainer were all painted black.
