Humans are visual beings, and brightly colored signs can quickly call attention. So when you’re a business owner and want to attract customers, having a well-lit space is a plus. There’s no wonder why neon lights are a hit then and now. With the onset of LED lights, business owners currently have more options.
Know what is the difference between NEON GLASS AND LED FLEX and see which ones can serve your business best:
Traditional Glass Neon Tubes:
These pieces are made out of glass tubes and filled with neon gas/argon to light up! These are the neon you typically see when you walk into a clothing store or in a storefront. It’s now making a big splash in home design too! Many clients choose to go this route. As traditional neon is made of glass, it is delicate so we recommend a backing or professional installation if you want to install the sign direct to your wall or your own backing. If it’s being shipped somewhere, we can help with that as well!
Traditional glass neon production time is about 9-10 business days once the design is finalized and the invoice is paid. However, if you need it sooner than that, let us know so we can see if that is possible.
LED Flex Sign
This is made out of flexible LED strips with a rubbery casing around it. It is a more cost effective option if you are looking for a sign but perhaps have a different budget. The good news is since it’s not glass it’s highly durable, and doesn’t get hot. The LED lights are energy efficient and last about 50,000 hours. Many clients who are looking for items in children’s rooms or events go with this option. Our LED neon is pretty easy to install so you can feel confident doing it on your own!
