Top Tips for Choosing the Perfect Neon Sign
26 April 2019 By Jessica Jones
Whether you’re looking for a neon sign for your home, place of work or even an event, there are a lot of decisions to be made before you collect your newly made sign! At Neon Creations, we can work with you to make sure your neon sign is just how you pictured it, but it’s crucial that you consider some all-important aspects before the design process.
After all, you don’t want to place an order for a great neon sign, only to realise weeks later that it would have looked better in a different colour! So, if you’re thinking of creating a neon sign with us, here’s some advice on the different design aspects you should consider first.
Consider your budget
Once you’ve decided you’d like to invest in a neon sign, get an idea of what budget you’d like to spend. This can help during the design process by making sure you don’t end up spending your life’s savings by accident!
Our prices vary depend on the colour, size and type of backing, so consider what budget you have. Our prices start from around £350 +VAT for a very basic, small sign. Having a realistic idea of what you want to spend on a neon sign can help you choose the right design to suit your needs perfectly.
Type of neon sign
A neon sign can mean many different things; at Neon Creations, we work with a number of different mediums to help create unique designs. Each type of neon sign can create a diverse appearance, so take some time to familiarise yourself.
For example, we can make neon on print, which consists of a printed background with the neon fixed to the front. We can also create neon infinity boxes and neon mirror boxes which provide a statement feature for any room.
The type of neon sign you choose can have a huge impact on the final look, so take a look through our different products and see which one catches your eye!
The design you choose for your neon sign could be heavily dependent on a particular theme that you have in mind. For instance, a wedding or birthday party will instantly help to narrow down your ideas. It may be worth remembering where your neon sign will hang once it’s ready; will it go with the rest of the room? Will it match the theme perfectly?
You can use your imagination or take inspiration from our gallery to help you with a great design. We can turn almost anything into neon, including logos, handwriting and artwork.
For a long time, neon signs were mostly associated with red and orange. This is because the neon gas creates a red colour, while argon gas is used to make most other colours. We can offer a variety of colours, so take your time and think about what colour would look best.
Consider where your sign will hang and the existing colour theme of the space, as well as what colour will really make the design pop!
Choose your size
We can make your neon sign to a variety of sizes depending on what you prefer. We have ample experience in working with smaller, intricate designs just as much as large scale signs. It’s important that you choose the right size for your neon sign, as this could have an impact on the overall look.
Be sure to measure the space that it will be displayed to ensure it will fit, and ensure it is big enough that it can be seen clearly! After all, there’s no point choosing your favourite quote and having it made too small to see from a distance. Your neon sign should be a great focal point and create an eye-catching feature as soon as you walk in the room.
