Neon tubes require up to 15,000 volts, at a low current, to operate. LED’s use either a 12 or 24 volt power supply. There are still billions of lineal feet of neon tubes installed in channel letters. Pylon signs and wall signs typically utilize fluorescent tubes, so energy savings isn’t as dramatic, but is still substantial. Converting all your signs to LED’s generates savings on utility bills with a payback on your investment in as little as 2 years. But wait, there’s more…
- Energy efficiency- consumes 60%-80% less electricity
- Maintenance- reduces service calls from 2-3 per year to once every 5-10 years
- Lifespan- lasts 50,000-60,000 hours (burning 10 hours/night = 16+ years)
- Durability- solid state technology, less breakage
- Environmentally friendly- fluorescent and neon contain toxic phosphor and mercury
- Instant on- other technologies must warm up
- Not sensitive to low temperatures
- Energy rebates- many utilities are still offering rebates for converting to LED
Your company’s logo and color palette should make it easier to find and recognize your stores. Many companies design their logos for one-dimensional printed materials or for electronic purposes such as magazine ads, business cards, letterhead, and social media pages. Signs are three-dimensional and may be internally illuminated with LED’s, neon, or other lighting sources. Designing and engineering signs involves much more than putting a logo in a square box.
The performance of your signs is critical to properly and consistently displaying your brand. A certain PMS color can look much different depending on the substrate, application method, and lighting. Our designers are experienced in making sure your signs look great and perform as expected.

If you’re replacing existing signs, you will want to see the difference between existing and proposed signs.
