Neon signs are a tried, true, and reliable type of illuminated sign. They have been in use for over a century, having been invented in 1910!
Real neon signs, however, have declined in popularity in recent years, due mainly to the ease and cost-efficiency of using LED lighting. LED lights have replaced neon as the go-to light in many types of signs. Let’s face it though: LED signs may be brighter and less expensive, but neon signs just look better. Not only is the light warmer and more pleasing to the eye, but a well-made neon sign is as much a work of art as it is a sign.
Nothing can beat the romanticism and nostalgia of a real neon sign. Share your message with retro flare! A classy custom neon sign can do wonders to enhance the atmosphere of your bar or restaurant.
The energy efficiency of LED lighting is often touted. A little-known fact is that neon is nearly just as energy efficient as LED. It was one of the first forms of lighting to be “Green Energy Certified” by the US Department of Energy. While LED lighting uses slightly less energy, the savings that you would see on your electric bill due to choosing an LED sign over neon would be mere pennies a year
