Custom Neon Signs

Classic neon VS LED neon

Neon is cool! And no matter what anyone says, this type of advertising will probably never go out of fashion. However, the modern market for illuminated advertising products is developing at the speed of the light and dictates its own trends and rules. The philosophy of sign production has changed as well. Along with the good old classic neon, another player enters the advertising market - flexible LED neon. This is a fundamentally new LED technology, but as we know, there will always be conservatives and innovators in the choice of outdoor advertising. So, which backlight technology should you choose?

Every type of neon has its benefits and drawbacks. For the long-term projects, we strongly recommend using classic glass neon, as it has a much longer service life and a much brighter glow. Flexible neon has established itself as a great budget option of the neon sign, which is easy to install and attractive.

Traditional neon signs are considered classics of outdoor advertising! This is one of the most beautiful, unusual and bright types of advertising that always attracts attention! Custom neon signs allow you to use original fonts, combine different colors and create unique visual images.

Production of neon signs

In 1910, the French engineer and inventor Georges Claude introduced the neon lamp to the world. He applied an electric discharge to a sealed glass tube filled with neon gases, which made the gas glow. Such signs quickly gained popularity all over the world. For 100 years, neon signs have been both a symbol of chic and luxury in expensive restaurants and casinos and a symbol of decline in gangster movies and criminal areas.

In recent years, there has been a huge demand for custom neon signs worldwide.

Neon is an odorless and colorless inert gas. In the process of work, specialists bend the special glass tubes according to a given template using a gas soldering iron. Then they are filled with a gas (or a combination of gases), and under the influence of an electric discharge, properly chosen pressure, phosphor and pulse frequency, a bright glow of gases in the tube is achieved.

The two most common gases are neon and argon. By changing the combination of elements, adding mercury and spraying the inner walls of the glass tube with a phosphor, you can get a bright red or dark blue color, the popular amber color, as well as many shades such as pink, turquoise and green. Advanced neon sign manufacturing technology allows to prevent the release of mercury into the environment and at the same time maintain its precise dosage.

Neon tubes are flexible enough to create the original signs of unusual shapes with beautiful fonts and creative images for a specific business. Neon is resistant to temperature extremes, so the neon tube can be placed both outdoors (for outdoor advertising and architectural lighting) and indoors (for stylish interiors).

LED neon is a sealed flexible cord (duralight), made of transparent PVC or silicone, inside which a LED strip is located. Thanks to the matte surface of the cord and the small LED pitch, flexible neon visually resembles traditional neon, but it is much cheaper.

An interesting feature of LED neon is a high degree of protection against moisture - IP68, which allows you to use it under water, as well as inside ice. Flexible cold neon is widely used for decorative lighting of premises and interior decoration due to original inscriptions and light images. LED neon is very popular as a lighting for costumes for different dynamic light shows, as well as among racers and fans of tuned cars (for the interior, dashboard, steering wheel, seats or bottom of the car).

Anyway, you will never go wrong with neon lighting! Custom neon signs will make the face of your business shine brightly. So, use the breathtaking power of neon to create a stylish image of your establishment!
