Traditional Neon Signs vs LED Neon Signs

Once you have decided to buy an office neon sign, it's essential to understand the differences between traditional class neon signs and LED neon signs that use the latest neon flex technology.

I explain the critical differences in the list below to empower you to make informed decisions.

The key differences are:

Personalization Capabilities: LED light-up signs can be customized in nearly every aspect. They allow us to create inspired designs, from intricate patterns to personalized text, with a broad spectrum of colors, fonts, and sizes available for fantastic handmade customized neon artwork.

Environmental Impact: LED office neon signs are ecologically friendly and more energy efficient than classic neon light signs. Thanks to their low energy consumption, LED lights emit little heat and are also free from harmful gases. Therefore, they reduce energy use to about 1/6th the amount traditional glass neon signs consume.

Durability and Longevity: LED neon lights are hard-wearing, long-lasting, and rarely break. They are celebrated for their remarkable durability, offering a lifespan of 50,000 to 100,000 hours. This extended longevity translates into lower ongoing maintenance costs.

Maintenance Ease: The construction of a neon light sign ensures it is robust and low-maintenance. Without fragile glass components and relying on solid-state technology, these signs are less susceptible to damage and easier to maintain, safe to post, and easier to install.

Easy to Mount: The three most popular ways to install an LED neon sign are; hang it from a ceiling, wall mounting with screws, pins, or tape, and stand-mounted - available in indoor and outdoor (requires weatherproofing) variants.

Safety Features: Designed with safety in mind, LED neon signs operate at lower voltages and generate minimal heat, making them safer for indoor environments. They are also adult and kid-safe.

I hope these insights will help you choose an option compatible with your aesthetic preferences, style, environmental concerns, and budget considerations.


I hope this article has helped business customers who are considering buying a neon sign for their office make a decision. I outlined the benefits, considerations, ideas, and options and compared LED neon to traditional neon signs.
