Machined Acrylic Letters with embedded LED's

view of a machined acrylic plastic letter with embedded led's

Made in the USA from 1.5" thick acrylic sheet, these letters have precision machined channels cut into the back of the letter where we embed the LED modules. Machined acrylic letters are one of the most expensive types of LED letters we offer due to the amount of labor and the high cost of 1-1/2" thick acrylic sheet.

These types of letters are considered professional quality and carry an unmatched 5 year manufacturer's warraanty on the LED modules and power supplies and a lifetime warranty on the acrylic letters. Systems are designed to last approximately 50,000 hours, or around five years but eventually the LEDs will burn out and have to be replaced.

Machined acrylic are produced in 10 different variations with prices starting at $348.00 for an 8" x 1.5" L100 face and side lit letter.

  • Colors Red, Blue & Green when used on face lighted letters correspond to the color of the lens(face) ordered. A red or orange face needs red LED, green for green and blue for blue. White can be used for white or yellow face lenses.

  • While it is possible to have more than one color on some variations the price would be much greater. For instance, on halo backlighted letters, the edge and face color could be painted differently but it would add another 50% to the cost due to paint masking. If this is desired it would need to be done as a custom addition. Call or email for details.

Return Style

  • G100, G200 and G300 have 2 types of edge returns available. The stepped edge leaves some of the backplate showing while the full depth edge allows the face plate to fit seamlessly over the backplate. The stepped edge is cheaper and is the default selection.
