Before You Buy a Neon Sign: Important Factors You Should Know About
If you’re reading this post, then you are one among us, neon lovers. Neon is an easy purchase. You may have questions about neons if this is your first time buying them. The Neonist’s mission is to spread light and joy through our gorgeous neon designs, and superior sign quality, and to make the world a better place. We have created this guide to help you select the right neon.
It is important to start with the basics. Determine your neon purpose.
Before buying a neon, you must first decide what it will be used for. Is the sign going to be displayed at your wedding reception? Will your wedding party be held indoors or outdoors? Outdoor neon signs are waterproof whereas indoor signs aren’t.
Do you want this sign to be part of your living room decor? You would like it to be hung in the nursery or playroom. You are a business owner who wants to add a unique element to your interior, whether it be a boutique, coffee shop, or beauty parlor.
These are all important questions. It’s because the function of the neon dictates many of its features.
To ensure the neon can be displayed outside of your wedding reception, it is important to let a neon vendor know in advance. A custom neon sign with an acrylic frame will work well if you are looking to decorate your nursery with neon.
A rechargeable battery can be ordered if you do not have a power outlet near the neon sign.
Size is everything
Before you place your order, be sure to take a look at the area or wall where your neon will be placed. It will help to decide how big your neon sign should be. Take measurements of your wall to determine the space that your neon should occupy. The Neonist can create any size of neon; just let us what size you need.
Also, the size of the sign is a major factor in determining its final price. The price of a LED neon sign that is large will go up.
Design and Color
The Neonist offers many design samples including fonts, colors, and shapes. We love working with clients that know what they want. Do not worry if you don’t know what you want. We can make a mockup that will allow you to feel confident about the design styles you choose.
The price can be affected by the design of the neon. You will pay more for a neon that has a curvy font than for one with a regular font.
The Sign’s Backing
This is another feature you should think about. There are many options for neon sign backings. You can choose from clear acrylic, transparent PVC (to make it more colorful), or mirror backing (gold or silver) to create a real WOW effect. Each backing has a unique price.
Last but certainly not least. Your budget.
The price of neons varies depending on their size and design. It is a good idea to get in touch with neon studio and tell them your budget. This can help you avoid potential misunderstandings later in the order process.
Takeout: When negotiating with a neon vendor for your neon sign requirements, make sure to specify:
- The purpose and location of your neon sign. A professional neon studio will match a sign to your specifications.
- You can add a logo or monogram to your wish list if you have a specific design in place.
- Target Budget.
