How to Design Your Very Own Custom LED Neon Sign

Creating a custom LED neon sign doesn't require you to be a professional designer. With a little bit of guidance and creativity, you can design a neon sign that perfectly suits your needs. Whether you're a business owner looking to add some flair to your storefront or an individual seeking to enhance your home decor, this blog post will guide you through the steps of designing your very own LED neon sign.

 

Understanding Your Needs

Before diving into the design process, it's vital to consider two crucial factors: the type of neon sign you desire and your budget. The cost of a custom neon sign often depends on the length of the Neon used, so having a budget in mind will help guide your design decisions.

Sketching Your Design

You can start your design process by sketching a rough draft on paper or using digital software like Adobe Illustrator or Gimp. These platforms allow you to export your designs as vector files (.svg), which are required for actions like cutting the acrylic backing or printing out the installation reference sheet.  Sometimes drawing on paper is all that our team need to then replicate in a digital design, and then in the real LED sign itself.

Including Dimensions

While sketching your design, ensure to include the dimensions. This information will allow the manufacturers to understand the size of the sign you want. Remember, the size doesn't have to be exact. You can give just one side's measurement, and they'll calculate the rest.
