Combine the premium look of our fabricated stainless steel letters with the sophisticated visibility of diffused halo lighting. Produced in a wide range of sizes from 6” to 36”high, in multiple rich stainless finish options, all lit with one of five LED colors. Halo Lit fabricated letters are produced with a removable can to allow for servicing of LEDs. In addition, optional detachable studs create a 1-1/2” stand-off, and allow easy removal of letters from the wall. Halo lit letters can be fabricated with or without LEDs. Alloy 304 is the standard stainless alloy, offering excellent resistance to corrosion. Alloy 316 and Titanium are also available and recommended for more harsh environments, such as coastal areas.
The look of our fabricated precision aluminum letters matches perfectly with the subtle and dramatic halo lighting effect produced by our reverse channel LED-lit letters. The lightweight solution for letters 16” and up to an astounding 120” tall, these dramatic large letters are impossible to ignore, yet won’t overwhelm your design or your shop floor. Gemini’s aluminum reverse channel letters feature a durable .090” (2.3mm) face gauge with .063” gauge returns, and offer a choice of polycarbonate backs with integrated LEDs to provide the lighting effect you desire. To provide outstanding light consistency and brightness, the interior of the cans are painted white.

With the industry’s broadest offering of cast letter styles, including our next generation Chank™ typeface styles from designer Chank Diesel, chances are Gemini has a cast letter style that also fits your client’s need for halo-lit, night time illumination. We engineer a recessed cavity behind our cast letters which can be populated with bright, energy-efficient LEDs providing a stunning halo look and sophisticated effect. Now your customer can get the timeless, classical look of cast without compromising on the need for illumination. There are better ways of achieving sophisticated illumination, and Gemini has the solutions.
UL Certified GemLite letters are produced with a two-part construction – faces and cans. Both components are formed with UV stable, CAB plastic that has been certified by UL for lit letters. Face lit letters are produced with a translucent material that is custom designed for LED lighting. Typical backs are formed in white to better reflect the LED lights. LEDs are secured to the backs with double faced tape and special hold down blocks. Average letter depths are recommended to be 2”-2-1/2”deep with a minimum stroke of around 1-1/4”.
For the past half century, Gemini has been a leading wholesale manufacturer of dimensional letters & logos. Continuous innovation is just one way we have achieved this recognition. For custom illuminated logos and letters that require exacting precision, LUXE letters made by Gemini are the solution.
This process results in a refined, sharp letter that yields perfectly diffused light in both the face- and back-lit halo options. These beautiful letters feature sculpted acrylic with precisely defined edges and a return thickness of only 1½ inches.

Stainless “L” bracket with bosses to receive threaded studs is held in place with truss head machine screw. Due to bracket size, a minimum 4” high and minimum 1/2” deep letter & stroke is required. This allows the can to be removed from the letter back for servicing LEDs. (view drawing)
Lexan backs are cut to fit within the inside of the return. This is not a perfect "puzzle" fit–but is close. "L" brackets are glued to the inside return of the can. The Lexan is attached to the "L" bracket with stainless flat head screws. Lexan is flush with back of letter. Holes are drilled through lexan to allow for mounting studs into "L" brackets. Lexan is available in clear or light diffusing. Optional detachable stud is available. Shown with optional white painted can interior. Upcharge for painting is 10%. (view drawing)
