Why to choose a LED Neon Sign over a traditional Neon Sign
Traditional neon signs are made using glass tubes filled with neon gas, while LED neon signs are made in various ways with an array of tiny LED lights. The main difference between the two is that traditional neon signs are heavier, more fragile, and require more maintenance, while LED neon signs are lighter, more durable, and require less maintenance. Additionally, LED neon signs offer significantly greater design flexibility and are much more energy efficient (and therefore environmentally friendly) compared to traditional neon signs.
LED neon signs are generally less expensive to manufacture than traditional neon signs, although the cost does depend on a variety of factors such as the size and complexity of the design, the materials used, and the manufacturer. In general, LED neon signs have lower upfront costs and have lower operating costs, as they are more energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan compared to traditional neon signs.
What are the different types of LED Neon effect signs?
There are various different types of LED neon signs. Some of the most common types include:
1. Flexible LED neon strip: a flexible plastic tube that is illuminated by a series of LED lights and designed to mimic the appearance of traditional neon.
2. Edge-lit LED neon: a flat acrylic panel, etched with a design with LED lights around the edges, creating a neon effect when lit (generally single colour).
3. LED neon flex rope light: a flexible and bendable LED light rope that can be shaped and formed into various designs and patterns.
4. LED neon sign with PVC cover: a plastic cover that encases the LED lights, giving the sign a more solid and finished appearance.
5. RGB LED neon: LED lights that can change colour, allowing for more creative and dynamic designs.
6. Madaboutneon: A unique design/method of construction that provides any amount of different colours in any intricate design, unlike any of the above types.
Each type of LED neon effect sign has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the best choice depends on the specific application and design requirements.
