In this article, we’ll talk about all the similarities and differences between traditional neon signage and our LED neon signs. We want to show you all the advantages of owning an LED neon over a traditional glass neon tube sign. We’ll also cover common questions people have about neon signage, so you can choose a neon sign with ease and confidence.

How much would I normally pay for a neon sign?

The price of LED neon lights and traditional signs really depends on a few factors. The first is the size of the neon sign. The second would be the complexity of the design and how many colours are used in the sign. And lastly, it depends on whether it’s a custom-made sign.

On average, a traditional glass neon tube costs about $200-$300 per linear foot. So, if you wanted a 3-foot by 5-foot sign, that would cost you $900 on the low end. An LED neon of the same size would only cost you about $450. And if you want a custom-made sign, the price will be higher.

How long does an LED neon sign last?

Our signs last for 60000 + hours. That’s about 7 years if you run it 24/7! So, if you’re looking for a long-term investment, an LED sign is the way to go. Our signs are built to last. With proper care and maintenance, our signs can last for years. Plus, if any of the components in your sign ever fail, we offer a warranty on all our products.

Are they worth it?

Yes! Custom signs are worth it for a business or a for personal use. With a custom sign, you can create your own design or incorporate your business name or logos into the light sign.

Why are traditional neon signs expensive?

The glass used in traditional neon signs can be made of rare-earth metals, which makes it more expensive than the plastic used in our LED signs. The process of making a traditional neon is also more difficult and time-consuming than our LED signs. All these factors make traditional neons more expensive than our LED signs.

Are neon signs expensive to run and maintain?

Our signs are much more energy-efficient than traditional neons. They use much less electricity, which makes them cheaper to run and maintain. In addition, our signs are rated for 60,000+ hours of continuous use. So, you won’t have to worry about replacing your sign anytime soon!
