How much does it cost to operate a neon sign?
Neon signs are extremely efficient. The reason they look so bright is because all of the output is focused within a small wavelength band of light. The average neon sign only consumes about .8 amps ( 8 tenths of an amp). This equates to about 96 watts (about equal to a single light bulb). Average cost to operate your neon sign is only about 20 cents per day (if you operate it 24 hours per day).

We do not ship any of our products out for Collect on Delivery. All orders must be pre-paid. We accept all major credit cards, check, or you can also make a payment to us via Paypal.
How far away will the letters on my neon sign be readable?
As a general rule of thumb, your letters will be legible up to 38 feet away for each inch of letter height. Hence, 6 inch lettering would be readable up to 200 feet away. Red neon letters are most readable, and account for its popularity in open signs. Purples and yellows are least readable and are usually recommended for borders. Black backings will also increase the visibility of your sign.

Can I pay for my neon sign using C.O.D?
We do not usually advise to clean the sign. But if you insist, please make sure you prepare things You'll Need:
- Soft bristle nylon brush
- 1/2-cup household ammonia
- 1/2-cup water
- Plastic container
- Microfiber cloth
Unplug the neon light or sign. Allow the tubes to completely cool.
Brush the neon tubes with a soft bristle nylon brush to remove surface dust. Apply only light pressure to the brush to prevent breaking or damaging the light.
Inspect the neon tubes for stubborn residue, such as nicotine stains. If residue or stains remain on the light, mix 1/2 cup of household ammonia with 1/2 cup of water in a plastic container.
Dip a microfiber cloth in the ammonia solution. Wring out the cloth to remove excess liquid.
Wipe the neon tubes gently with the damp cloth to remove sticky stains and stubborn residue. Allow the tubes to air-dry completely.
You can substitute a soft sock for the soft bristle nylon brush.
Never clean a neon sign without first unplugging; the high voltage can cause serious injuries. Do not soak the sign with the solution; the block-out paint on the neon tubes can crack and peel off.
