From specialized fonts to large glowing images, neon signs have been driving business and enriching city landscapes for many decades. That being said, for Colorado businesses, neon signs have also suffered under the pressure of our extreme weather conditions. Fortunately, modern-day technology has given us a solution for delicate neon signs: Faux Neon Signs!
There’s no sign that is more classic than a neon sign. Neon signs are versatile, colorful and provide unlimited creative solutions to bring out your brand personality and attract attention. However, for a neon sign to live outdoors and serve as exterior signage, the delicate glass tubes have to be completely encased or mounted inside the windows not to succumb to hail and extreme temperatures. These limitations have been frustrating signmakers and business owners for years.
Faux neon signs do not have those same limitations. With faux neon, business owners carry the visual effect of neon signs without the worry of broken glass and constant sign repair and maintenance.
But, what exactly is a faux neon sign? In short, it has versatility, functionality, performance, and tell-tale bright, bold colors, without the delicate glass tubes and the gas that create the neon colors. Instead, faux neon is LED lighting and custom-formed acrylic tubes that mimic the style of classic neon signs.
Benefits of Faux Neon Signs
Besides being made from a studier material, there are benefits that any business owner should find attractive.
- Visibility – They have a cleaner and crisper appearance, shine a bit brighter, and are more visible in the daytime and nighttime.
- Energy-saving – Cost is always a factor with any sign design. LED signs require less energy, less power, and fewer electrical supplies.
- Reduced service – LED has a long life span and is more resistant to weather and damage.
- Availability – Neon bending is an art. Additionally, materials are becoming limited in supply and colors.
