Choosing a home for your custom neon sign

Because the location of your neon sign can have an impact on its design, so it's worth considering before you buy one. The design, size, shape, and kind of backing can all be influenced by the possible display location. If you want to put your neon sign in a high-traffic area, such as a hallway, you might want to take extra precautions to keep the sign safe. This is usually done with an acrylic box or cover to keep it out of the reach of children or passers-by. .

How does a neon sign work?

Making a neon sign requires a great deal of expertise and years of practice in order to make stunning designs for your house or company. While you will receive a completed sign that is ready to hang or mount on the wall, your custom neon sign has traveled a long way to get there. Making a neon sign requires a combination of technical know-how and artistic glass bending. If you've ever wondered how your neon sign lights so brilliantly and in such a beautiful color, look no further.

A neon sign’s anatomy

Glass tubes make up the majority of neon signs. They come in a variety of diameters ranging from 8 to 20 millimeters. For the majority of the neon signs we make, we utilize 8mm and 10mm tubes, however it depends on the design you choose. The glass tubes are then linked to a transformer through electrodes on both ends. When all of the pieces are ready to be put together, you can choose from a variety of backing options, including acrylic cases or panels, but there are also other options!

What causes a neon sign to glow?

A neon sign's distinctive glow is extremely eye-catching and colorful, which is why they're so popular as a decorative item for your home or workplace. The neon atoms are pushed towards the electrodes by an alternating current, which helps to build enough energy for them to split. As they clash with each other, their energy increases. When the atoms return to their original state of neutrality, they emit a light particle. This is what gives the light its distinctive appearance.

How does a neon sign get its color?

Neon signs are made up of a variety of noble gases that are all odorless and colorless. Noble gases are common in the air we breathe, which means they're harmless. The characteristic orange-red color of neon signs derives from the gas itself. Other gases, on the other hand, can be used to generate other colors. Argon emits blue light, helium emits pink light, while krypton emits green light. A combination of gases can be utilized to produce a variety of colors or even a multicolored sign.

Neon signs do not get hot

Many people believe that a neon sign's glow generates a lot of heat, which can be distracting if the sign is displayed in a high-traffic area. Fortunately for you, this isn't the case! The neon tubes may feel warm, but they are not hot, and you can touch them without burning your fingers or becoming uncomfortable. This might provide you some piece of mind, knowing that your custom neon sign will be safe to install.
