Using LED neon signs can help add value for your business and allow for a huge range of customisation options. But with so many choices available, it can be hard to understand what contemporary signs are and how exactly they are put together.

While many may think of neon signs as crafted from delicate glass tubes, modern designs are far from fragile. Crafted from robust LED bulbs, contemporary units are bright, durable, and easy to maintain – making them a perfect choice for many businesses. And with a range of customisation options, a client can end up securing the exact kind of unit they need for their specific requirements.

So, how exactly are modern LED neon signs made and what should you be aware of before potentially making a purchase?

How are LED neon signs made?

When you have made the decision to install a LED neon sign and know the design you want to use, it’s time to get the ball rolling on realising your vision. This includes the following steps-

Reaching Out: After you have an internal discussion about your proposed design, reach out to us to talk through your specification and secure a costing. During this time, we will walk you through the process offering prompts and options to ensure that all the required variables are covered. This culminates with a quote and a costing. If approved, we will move onto-

Design & Review: We work out a design for your sign, obtain your feedback and secure a sign off on the project. This will allow you to choose from a range of potential options before actioning your proposed design into a final proof. Once you are happy with the work, it will be approved, and the team will start-

Construction: During this time, we will assemble your sign to your exact specifications. This includes prefabrication, machining, prep, and the application of vinyl and bespoke elements. Once the frame is complete, your LED’s will be attached, and the device will undergo final assembly and extensive testing to ensure it is fit-for-purpose.

Delivery: Once complete and fully reviewed, the sign will be packaged carefully and delivered to your business. Our team can then mount the sign in your chosen location and can enjoy the follow-on after-care and support that we provide.

Are LED Neon signs safe?

Yes. Led neon lights contain no potentially toxic gases or mercury so are perfectly safe for all environments. They do not require any special handling or disposal either.

Can you create one yourself?

Absolutely, providing that you have the time, resource, and experience.

LED signs are simple to manufacture, provided that you have access to a fully equipped workshop and dedicated design team to work with you and produce your materials.

If you do go on to pursue this route, it is important that you are fully confident in your capacity to deliver. A ‘homebrew’ sign can involve increased maintenance, lack the polish of a professional product, or even be risky to put in public.

If you’re looking for reliable quality, a speedy turnaround, and guidance and care; a professional service is the way to go.

What are some potential advantages?

When it comes to deploying a sign in your space, there are a number of distinct positives. These include by are not limited to-

Low Running costs: Choosing LED neon bulbs for your build keeps the cost of your unit down compared to conventional neon options for other signage alternatives. This also helps cut back on maintenance and call-out expenses, ensuring that your unit enjoys savings across the board.

Flexibility: Choosing the right provider allows you to pick out a design that not only matches your brand but serves a specific marketing function. No matter the dimensions, aesthetic, or use-case, a reliable provider will be able to provide the solution that you require.

Eye catching Quality: LED neon signs stand out and get you noticed. It’s as simple as that.
