      Apparently Jewelite is out of their Gold Trim Cap until July / August, so we've been getting a lot of calls from large Sign Shops for orders of Plasco's 1" Gold to complete a rather large Sign Program.
       
      So I dug out a Jewelite Sample of Gold, compared to Plasco's Gold Channel Letter Trim Cap.  
       

       

       
      In the comparison, Plasco has just a more nicer gold color, Jewelite looks more of a washed out metal coloring with a little gold in it, IMO.  
       
      If you're looking to see the Gold difference between the two to substitute, I think using Plasco 1" Gold Trim Cap will make those signs look so much better.

      Some notes I'd like to add about this product.

      Some may have used this product in the past and some may have never had a chance. This product disappeared from suppliers right after 9/11 from what I understand there were Customs issues that made it too costly to bring in.

      IF you remember this product from long ago, you will be glad it's back (just like the reaction I've gotten to all who have purchased from me).

      IF you have never used it, your fabricators will love you for using it, it's MUCH MUCH easier to work with and notch, you won't get those splits you sometimes get on corners.
      My other understanding is that this product was mainly distributed on the west coast, so not many on the east coast have ever tried it. My advice is try it, believe me YOU will LOVE it!

      Before 9/11 I used PLASCO and the Silvatrim Trimcaps. I still have signs up 16+ years and this trim cap is still up, it's very durable.
       
       
       
      PLASCO Trim for Polycarbonate Channel Letter Faces
      Plasco is an excellent channel letter trim cap to be used to fabricated polycarbonate / Lexan channel letter faces. We also stock Channel Bond, the 1 part system which makes it easy for bonding Plasco Trim to Polycarbonate. You can also find Channel Bond here
       
      PLASCO VS JEWELITE
      In another thread I was asking why anyone east of Colorado "WHY" they mainly buy 1" Jewlite and not 3/4" Jewelite for 24" Channel Letters and smaller.
       
      The reason seems to be is that when you use 1" Jewelite with a standard 3/16" channel letter face the 1" Jewelite gives you more clearance because the arrow extrusion protrudes more than 1/4" from the face giving you less mechanical fastening room. Make sense but 1" is very tough to notch, bend and get in small letter centers too because of that arrow extrusion.
       
      I was always use to Plasco Trim Cap in my years of the sign industry, NOT Jewelite because on the West Coast Plasco was stocked more than Jewelite before 9/11. So after this "clearance" point was brought up I did some quick measuring because I had a east coast client buy Plasco 1" to match up with his regular use of 1" Jewelite. Then shortly after receiving his order with 3/4" samples he soon after starting ordering 3/4". I asked him why the change in smaller trim. He said the change was because the 3/4" Plasco trim gave him the same fastening clearance that he got buying 1" Jewelite. He went from paying about $70.00 per roll to $44.75 saving $32.15
       
      I've attached some images to show you that you can use 3/4" Plasco Trim Cap that will give you the same clearance as 1" Jewelite IF clearance is important to you.
       
      Plasco vs. Jewelite - Here we display the channel letter baseline along with the clearance you get using 3/4" & 1" Plasco / Jewelite Trim Caps

       
      1" Jewelite clearance

       
      1" Plasco - More mechanical clearance than 1" Jewelite

       
      3/4" Plasco - Just about the same mechanical clearance as using 1" Jewelite

       
      3/4" Jewelite - Less mechanical clearance than 3/4" Plasco

       
      1" Jewelite - Arrow extrusion protrusion more than 1/4" past the channel letter face.

      Like everywhere else if you're very fortunate to be busy during this shut down, some business's are still willing to upgrade their branding in these slow depressing times
       
      We removed some outdated retail signage and upgraded them to their current look.
       
      I know, this is normally just an average channel letter sign....*Yawn*......but what's unique is the lighting system that powers it at night.
       
      The Illumination?
       
      BrightON II 24v constant current NOT constant voltage ....LEDs instead of the industry typical 12v LEDs for half the amperage across the wire and components which translates to less heat, resistance, and in return a MUCH better system for dependability.  Not even to mention just how much light for very little power you get from the super high efficient BrightON II Chips with the added 175˙ high efficiency optics.  Another advantage of 24V is the typical single channel power supplies are 96W, which means you can et LOTS of LED modules on a single power supply (less parts, less problems) which leads me to the next part...
       
      The system doesn't stop at the LEDs, it continues with France Lighting Solutions "True Power" LED Power Supplies.  The Electric Sign industries unique and sole 100% load Power Supplies, no not 85%, not 80%.....100%.  5 year Labor / 5 Year Parts.   If you've been in this industry long enough I don't even need to mention what "France" products mean....it mean Longevity & Dependability...just the BrightON II LEDs
       
       
       
      Front and Rear illuminated channel letters.  France Westrim Pattern Paper 

       
       
       
       
      15" thick Tilt-Up Wall with plenty of rebar, WOOOHOOO!!
       

       
       
       
       
       
      France Lighting Solutions Power Supplies of course.  The Atlas series with diagnostic LED lamp
       

       
       
       
       
      The Finished Day Look

       
       
       
       
      The Night Finished Look.
       
      For typical 5" deep return channel letters with front illumination light output measured right on the face for decent or as most LED MFG's like to say..."usable light"... if you have a light meter on hand ....."usable light" is right around 150 - 165 Foot Candles....that's just your typical even lighting number.  
       
      The BrightON II at full stretch already exceeds that and with fewer modules compared to competitors using higher powered LED modules.  This set right here gave us an average of 213 Foot Candles right on the face despite the light loss coming out of the rear.  Brighton LEDs are "Competitive Light"...NOT "Usable Light"
       

       
       
      In the end?  
       
      The client letting me know that they are VERY happy and that the sign looks AWESOME.
       
      These are the types of signs you flash to potential clients....Bright, Dependable, & Happy Reviews by Happy Customers.  If this sign was in a shopping center the light output alone would stand out, and far above other competing signs.

      What's just as good if not better than our Channel Letter trim Cap?
       

       
      Our fresh batch of Syndicate Bootleg Brewing "K-Liscious Summer Sunset Ale", that's what!  It goes perfect with Trim Capping, it gives your finger tips a cool buzz feeling while saving the taste of hoppy goodness!
       
      By the way, I STILL don't get why most of you buy 1" Jewelite or 1" Plasco trim Cap for your average size letters.  3/4" PLASCO has the same mechanical clearance as 1" Jewelite, and again MUCH easier to work with without having to worry about bending that Jewelite arrow trim around tight corners and bends for small letter faces.
       
      Check this out, see.....same mechanical clearance!
       
       

       
      So why spend the extra money on 1" Jewelite???

      I wanted to initiate some conversation regarding Trimless channel letters which are becoming more common every year.  Adams Tech introduced a new patented coil named LetterForm at ISA Sign Expo 2016.  We were actually presented with an ISA Innovation Award for this new coil. I've been working closely with many of our customers and the feedback has been tremendous.  A number of major players are pitching Trimless letters to their national accounts with success.  Just wondering if many of you are seeing more jobs come in specifying rimless letters?

Neon Sign as A Meaningful Imagery Neon signs are not generally just utilized by retail facades or coffee shops. They’re a stylish and fun method for drawing consideration and brightening up a plain dull wall. A neon sign doesn’t generally need to be something that shows your organization’s name or logo. Truth be told, it doesn’t need to be a text by any means. Perhaps you have a particular picture at the top of the priority list that addresses your business, like a mascot, an item, a product, or even a spot. You can make a unique LED neon sign for nearly anything you conjure up. Customize a neon sign of your food or beauty product for successful marketing. If your organization is a privately-run company, and you need to give recognition to that, you can add a neon country map as a stylistic theme to your wall to add an individual touch to your office interior décor.

Whether you have a new, limited, or best-selling product or service in-store, using custom neon signs to advise your customers about it, is multiple times more compelling than customary promoting. It gets consideration quicker and satisfies the eyes much better. Have these thoughts propelled you to make your own neon sign for your business? Fantastic!
