Non-Illuminated Signs Features

Non-Illuminated Signs

  • In addition to the common non-illuminated metal signs made of stainless steel and aluminum, laser-cut acrylic signs are also common non-illuminated signs.
  • The surface of stainless steel can obtain different finishes through plating and antique processes. For example, the surface of the gold-plated signs appears golden.
  • If your area is close to the sea, it is recommended to use marine grade 316 stainless steel to produce the signs, and donot use plating process, because the plating layer will still be oxidized and corroded.
  • In order to make the logo installation well, we recommend using stud bolts to install the non-illuminated signs, which needs to drill holes on the wall for the stud bolts. Of course, it can also be glued or installed with 3M VHB.
  • Although the installation of non-illuminated signs is very simple and does not require electrician qualifications at all, we still suggest hiring a professional installer to install the signs, we will provide the layout template and installation notice, so the signs could be installed correctly and quickly.


According to experience, there is a certain proportional relationship between the height of a letter and the viewing distance. The viewing distance of a letter is about 100-120 times the height of the letter in good light. For example, a letter with a height of 10cm can be read at a distance of about 10 meters, and a letter with a height of 10 inches can be read at a distance of about 100 feet.


Non-illuminated signs can be installed in the following ways:

  • Direct Mount:Non-illuminated signs are mounted directly to the wall by stud bolts, needing drill holes in the wall to install stud bolts. Also could be gluded on the wall or use 3M VHB to install on the wall.
  • Raceway installation: Non-Illuminated sign is mounted on the raceway, raceway is a rectangular mounting structure which serves as a mounting structure. Then the signs and raceway are mounted on the wall as a whole. Compared with direct installation, using raceway installation can make installation easier, because there is no need to drill many holes in the wall. Mostyl, each non-illuminated letter has 3 stud bolts, If it is installed directly, it needs to drill 3 holes on the wall. Then for a set of signs to have 10 letters, it needs to drill at least 30 holes, but if it is installed on the raceway, it probably means that 10 holes is enough.
  • Hanging installation: use stainless steel rope or stainless steel round tube to hang from the ceiling, or hang from the bracket.
  • Bracket installation: similar to raceway installation, the signs are installed on the bracket, then the signs and the bracket are installed on the wall together.


As long as the non-illuminated signs are installed correctly, the maintenance is very simple, just wipe the dust with a soft cloth moistened with clean fresh water, never use organic solvents to clean, especially for signs with plating or paint layers.

Non-illuminated Channel Letters

Non-illuminated channel letters are the most frequently asked type of non-illuminated signs due to its excellent three-dimensional effect. Under good lighting conditions, the display effect of three dimensional letters is not inferior to that of illuminated signs. Yes, our eyes have a clear preference for three-dimensional things, and dimensional letters are more eye-catching than 2D letters.

Unless it is a large letter, aluminum will be considered for weight reduction in order to facilitate installation, otherwise we will use stainless steel by default. Stainless steel has better corrosion resistance and service life, and has better processing characteristics, which can produce more exquisite signs.
