Neon Vs LED Signs

The following is a more detailed analysis of the differences between neon and LED signs. Read our blog post entitled The Effectiveness of LED Lighting for Signs to learn more about the advantages of LED lighting.

1. Purchase Price

Neon Vs LED Signs

The initial pricing of neon and LED lights is comparable, although LED signs may be slightly cheaper. The prices will vary depending on the size and style of your choice. There are also fewer neon sign suppliers because of a significant decrease in demand so it may be harder to source a good supplier within a close proximity to your business.

2. Power Usage

Neon signs have improved their power consumption recently but they  still use higher voltage than LED signs, which are safer to work with.

3. Maintenance

LED signs are almost maintenance free and have dramatically lower running costs. Neon signs require more maintenance, especially in a colder climate where ice and snow elements factor into the equation. A trained professional is also required to attend to maintenance issues, which can incur further costs.

4. Safety

Neon signs use high voltage and use real glass tubing so there is always the potential for breakage and will require special treatment for disposal.  LED’s are shock proof and have very little heat emitted, which makes them absolutely safe to use. LED signs also do not contain detrimental materials like mercury or phosphor.

5. Brightness

image of the interior swatch channel letter sign

Neon signs have a warmer, more aesthetically pleasing light than LED signs. On the other hand, LED lights are brighter and can be seen from a greater distance.

6. Accessibility

Neon signs can come in many colours and is flexible in design. They are reliable and can operate 24 hours a day to better serve your business. LED signs can be easily controlled by wireless modem & remote control. LED signs are also a newer technology and they are increasing in popularity.

Acrylic Sign Applications

Acrylic can be used to meet a wide variety of signage needs. Among these are:

  • Point-of-purchase products
  • Menu boards
  • Tradeshow exhibits
  • Retail signs
  • Restaurants signs
  • Nameplates and name badges
  • Directional and informational signs
  • Showroom signs
  • Office building signs 

The Lifespan of Custom Acrylic Signs

Since Acrylic is a tough, durable product it can last for many years. Although they have a glass-like appearance, they are quite rigid. In most cases, acrylic signs are lightweight and easy to transport from one location to another. This is a real plus for a business that is rapidly growing and finds its workspace needs changing. Longevity depends on the use, whether indoors or outdoors, and the care given. Most acrylic signs should last a minimum of 5 years.

Customizing Acrylic Signs

When designed by professionals, customized acrylic signs can bring a degree of sophisticated elegance to your business. Acrylic is malleable, enabling designers to create various shapes, including your logo and company name. The use of CO2 lasers and a CNC router on acrylic signs allow for very detailed shapes and cuts.

Acrylic signs have an opaque or translucent background on which customize graphics are added. The opaque background acts as a perfect foil for the bright, glossy colours of the message and logo. The translucent background is typically used for illuminated signs with translucent graphics.  Acrylic can be formed into near limitless possibilities depending on the customer’s requirements.

Simply bring us your requirements and we will assist you in meeting your business or organizational needs.

Why Choose LED Signs Over Fluorescent Lighting?

Fluorescent lighting is the standard that has been used for decades in signage around the world. While it remains the preferred choice over all other lighting options, many business owners are investing in LED lighting.

The future of lighting belongs to LED. Below are a few of the reasons to choose LED lights over fluorescent lights:

  • Low Energy Use: Only a fraction of the power needed for other technologies is required for LED lights.
  • Longer Life: LED lighting features long operational lifetime expectations. This means less frequent replacements.
  • Low-Voltage: A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination.
  • Sizing: LED’s diminutive size means they can be used in locations and ways that other lighting technologies can’t match.

Our article entitled “LED vs Fluorescent Lighting” elaborates on this topic.

What Is Coroplast Made Of?

Coroplast has a similar appearance to cardboard. That’s why sometimes it is referred to as plastic cardboard. The product is made of  polypropylene or polypropylene copolymer plastics sheets. The sheets are extruded so that they resemble corrugated cardboard. In place of the wavy or curvy appearance of cardboard, however, Coroplast is formed with square channels known as flutes. The flutes can run horizontally or vertically depending on the customer’s needs.

where to buy coroplastWhat Is Coroplast Used For?

The product can be used for a wide variety of purposes ranging from shipping boxes to model airplanes. However, it is probably best known for its use in the signage industry. In our previous post, we examined some potential sign uses for Coroplast. Listed below are a selection of signage uses for the product.

An important note to remember is that these signs are good for both indoor and outdoor applications. Although not suitable for long term outdoor signage, Coroplast is strong enough to withstand all but the worst weather. The product is also water resistant making it ideal even in damp, rainy or snowy weather.

Point of Purchase Displays

This image from Garden Centre Marketing is a great example of how Coroplast can be used in a point of purchase display. The sign is bright and colorful, immediately catching the eye. It can easily be used to create point of purchase display signage to attract attention to new products, promotional products, special features and more.

To the right is another point of purchase display. coroplast This one is a self-standing unit Pinned by Ondřej Bahula | Onto POS/POP displays and built to present Air Wick products in an eye-catching manner.

_smcoroplast2Why Is Coroplast a Good Choice?

Although there are better choices for long term signs, Coroplast’s adaptability makes it an excellent choice for many short-term uses – both indoors and temporarily, outdoors. The product is cost-effective yet provides a strong visual presence. Its benefits include the fact that it is a lightweight product, making it easy to handle, yet effective in a variety of situations.

Its rigid plastic construction makes it durable enough to be used outside – even in Canadian winters!

coroplast_lawn_signSome of Coroplast’s Advantages

Coroplast is tougher than cardboard, fibreboard, and card stock. It is also considerably lighter than solid plastic signs. Although often used as temporary signage, Coroplast is durable enough to last for up to two years in the outdoors, although due to its lightness, it can be susceptible to extremely high winds. The product can be cleaned easily, is stain resistant, and waterproof.

What Should My Coroplast Sign Look Like?

Coroplast can be cut to any sign size you require and comes in a variety of colours. This allows you to create a simple design with a simple message or let your creative juices flow with something more intricate.

The Value of Attractive Exterior Signs

Think about it. How many times have you entered a business location because the sign was well-placed, attractive, and informative? Consider your business and how many competitors you have in your market. Many businesses are competing with a half dozen similar business within a few blocks. If your sign is unappealing then you are letting your competitors have an advantage over you. First impressions are important, and that goes for business signs too. If you are considering a new business sign, then contact us to see what we have to offer.

“I have used Westmount Signs for all of my signage and printing and recommend them to anyone looking for great quality work, for good value, that is delivered with exceptional professionalism.”

Cost Effective Window Lettering & Graphics

Window lettering and graphics are relatively quick and easy to produce. They create an attractive, visually appealing sign that is cost-effective.

They help to reinforce branding while communicating quickly and clearly with your customer. An added benefit is that they provide a certain amount of privacy.

Graphic signs can be offered with a complete installation package. Explore our window lettering and graphics page here.

Three-Dimensional Signsexterior signs

Three-dimensional signs are valuable for the texture and interest that they create.

By throwing off shadows, they add depth and provide solidity and perspective. These types of signs can be created in all shapes and sizes and are relatively inexpensive to produce. They can be plain or backlit for further colour enhancement.

Great for plazas or large, stand-alone properties and as a marketing tool, they are effective at getting your business noticed by your potential customers.

What style of building are you in? Match your signage to the type of property. For example, LED signage that is suitable for a take-out restaurant may not suit an office situated in a renovated older historic building. Perhaps you might want signage that is more subtle and has a more vintage appeal.

Backlit signs are ubiquitous in plazas and may even be part of your lease agreement.

Also, take into consideration what you are seeking to accomplish. An A-Frame on the sidewalk is an excellent way to attract casual passers-by into a bakery, a coffee bar or restaurant.
