A light source, such as a neon tube, is positioned within the enclosure and attached to provide illumination for the letter. For high profile sign applications, three dimensional illuminated or non illuminated channel letters are an ideal choice. High-efficiency L.E.D. lighting, classic neon tubing, or fluorescent lighting for large letters are additional options, each having its own benefits.
