channel letter signChannel letters are a type of electrical signage. The difference between channel letters and other signage types is that channel letters are dimensional. Each letter is formed individually with its own separate enclosure. Channel letters get their name from the internal "channel" contained by each letter where the letter illumination is housed. The side of a formed channel letter is called the "return" and the return is what forms the letter enclosure or channel.

Raceway mounted channel letters are attached to a long, narrow rectangular aluminum box call a raceway. The raceway contains all the electrical components such as wiring and power supplies. Instead of each individual letter mounted to the wall, the letters are mounted to the raceway which is then mounted to the building. Raceways allow for easier installation and service and can be painted to match the wall.

The wiring is then fed through the wall to an interior cavity where the power supplies are located. Direct mounted channel letters are cleaner looking, but also require more installation time and drilling holes in to the building.
