What are Neon Signs?
If you’ve seen a traditional bar or restaurant sign, you’ve likely seen a neon sign. These signs are specialty electric signs that are illuminated using gas-discharge tubes. For advertising, neon dates back all the way to the 1920s, and many businesses still choose to use neon signs today. Big letters with lights look unique and they’re unmistakable when illuminated at night or day. Because the gas-discharge tubes are often used to form the lettering, the text on neon signs is sharp, highly legible, and free of any blur or light bleed.
Neon big letters with lights look their best in the evenings and in low-light conditions. They also work fantastically indoors, managing to stand out and attract attention even in brightly lit retail spaces and showrooms. LED lighting has overtaken neon in terms of popularity, but plenty of business owners in Canada still want the timeless look of brightly glowing neon tubes. If you fall into this category, About Signs Limited can help.
How Much Do Neon Letter Signs Cost?
The cost of neon letter signs can vary depending on the size of the sign and the complexity of the lettering. This ranges from extremely affordable for a traditional “OPEN” sign for a grocery store, up to a significant (but valuable) investment for primary storefront neon letter signs or large wall signs.

Are There Better Options than Neon Letter Signs?
LED lighting is an alternative to neon that you can consider over neon letter signs. Depending on the size of neon lit up letter signs, choosing LED instead of neon letter signs could result in energy savings of up to 60%. Neon signs typically last for five to seven years before the tubes need to be repaired or replaced. LED lit up letter signs can last for up to ten years in some cases.
Is Neon Suited to Illuminated Channel Letters?
Our illuminated channel letters are created with LED lighting to improve efficiency and durability. They are striking in appearance and equally as impressive as neon. Illuminated channel letters are typically front or halo lit, so the look is not quite the same as neon. However, it can have a similar impact and many people find that LED illuminated channel letters are much more contemporary.
