Video: Here's how channel signs — basically those big signs that hang above stores and restaurants across the world — are made. The Science Channel gives us a sneak of the way things are done and it's surprising that so much of it still requires the help of a human. It's not all robots!

When we think of early logos, we think of 19th and 20th century classics like Levi's or Coke. But the origins of logos and trademarks go back way further than that — back thousands of years, when merchants and craftspeople used "merchant's marks" to designate the origins of goods and their authors.
