Working with Chris was an absolute pleasure. He helped design a sign and suggested all possible options. We went with a dynamic neon sign in the end, and it's unreal in our coffee bar, behind the servers.

Considerations When Creating a Custom Neon Sign

Investing in a custom neon sign can be expensive, so it is crucial to understand the range of customization options available.

Here are the variables you can customize:

  • Design: Create a bespoke design for your cafe or coffee sign, incorporating elements such as text, images, your company name, business logo, or artwork.
  • Colors: Choose from 24 LED neon colors to align with your brand or match a specific theme.
  • Fonts: Use your brand's font or select any font that suits your preference for the sign.
  • Background Print: UV-printed backgrounds allow for detailed graphic elements, such as intricate logos or artwork, adding depth and character to the sign.
  • Mounting Type: A custom neon sign can be mounted in virtually any location - hang, mount, or on a stand.
  • Indoor/Outdoor: This is a consideration for coffee shops that wish to mount the sign outdoors; bear in mind weatherproofing and mounting high enough to be out of reach by the public.
  • Advanced Features: To enhance the experience of your custom neon sign, consider advanced options like Dynamic Neon, flashing effects, or multiple colors.

There's no going wrong with a custom neon sign, as it can be tailored perfectly to match any decor or branding requirement.


Every cafe owner knows that welcoming and engaging decor is vital to success. The goal should be to draw customers to your brand and into your coffee shop and make them repeat customers. One component of achieving a warm atmosphere is the effective use of lighting.

For home decor, be attractive, inviting, and bold. Again, lighting creates ambiance, and vibrant neon signs in your home decor are a great way to elevate the interior design in an area of your home.

The conclusion is that having a coffee neon sign - whether in the commercial context of a cafe, restaurant, or business or the decor context of a home or event - expresses your passion and love for coffee.
