Primary Building Signage

Building Fascia signs, also known as Primary Building Signs, are a type of signage that is affixed to the fascia of a building. The fascia is typically an area on a building, just below the roofline or above the storefront. Fascia signs are highly visible and play a significant role in establishing the identity and branding of a business. 


  • Channel Letter Signs: Channel letter signs are similar to raised letter signs but with a specific construction method. Each letter or element of the sign is fabricated individually, creating a hollow channel inside. These channels can be filled with LED lights to create illuminated signage. Channel letter signs offer versatility in terms of font styles, sizes, and lighting options, making them popular for branding purposes. 

  • Lightbox Signs or Sign Cabinets: Lightbox fascia signs feature an illuminated display area that emits light from within. They are typically made of aluminum or acrylic with translucent panels on the front face. The internal lighting source, such as fluorescent tubes or LED modules, provides even illumination to the graphics or text displayed on the sign. Lightbox signs offer high visibility, especially during low-light conditions or at night.

  • Raised Letter Signs: Raised letter fascia signs are three-dimensional signs that create a sense of depth and dimensionality. The letters or elements of the sign are raised from the flat surface, providing a visually striking effect. Raised letter signs can be made of materials such as metal, acrylic, or molded plastic and are often illuminated for enhanced visibility at night.

  • Flat Panel Signs: Flat panel fascia signs are made of rigid materials such as aluminum, acrylic, or composite panels. They are typically rectangular or square in shape and feature the business name, logo, or other relevant information. Flat panel signs can be customized with various colors, graphics, and lettering styles to match the branding of the business.

  • Projecting Signs: Projecting fascia signs are mounted perpendicular to the building's facade and extend outward, usually suspended from a bracket or arm. These signs are designed to catch the attention of passersby from different angles and improve visibility from a distance. Projecting signs can be flat panels, dimensional letters, or even custom shapes that feature the business name or logo on both sides.


Fascia signs are an effective way to create a strong visual presence for a business, establish brand recognition, and attract customers. The choice of fascia sign type depends on factors such as the desired aesthetics, budget, location, and local signage regulations.
