Neon Sign Articles and FAQ RSS
We’re big fans of both color and typography, and if there’s a fun way to combine them—even better. Which is why this 'No Vacancy' neon sign in the home of Birmingham artist Matt Underwood decorated by designer Barri Thompson is one of our favorites, and why we’re still obsessing over neon signs as decor. No longer just for bar signs (though those are still going strong!), you too can decorate like an interior designer and add a little glow to your home.
Custom neon signs can be used by homeowners or any business including bars, restaurants, nail and hair salons, convenience stores and more. The price of a sign really depends on the complexity of the design and how big the piece is you plan to create. Many basic signs can be purchased for under $500. These small investments pay for themselves pretty quickly with increased customers.
Neon lights have the potential benefits of not only attracting onlookers, but also adding to the image of the product or company. The eye-catching displays create a psychological impact on the mind, by luring the customers and to make them think that “this is their best choice”. Many national companies continue to select neon in their newest installations including: Target, Old Navy, Bass Pro Shop, Ramada, Red Lobster and Bennigan's to name but a few.
Surprisingly, the new-age is familiar with technology, but people are still attracted to the old signage mainstays especially in case of neon. Many companies are more dedicated these days to create “new signs” that are reminiscent of yesteryear. If you have ever visited the City of Memphis TN, you will have seen Bass Pro Shops nationally recognized flagship store that encompasses this vintage look.
Since the advent of neon signs, people have been fascinated with the brilliant glowing colors. Once they served as signage and now as attractions in the modern era. When you see a classic restaurant, you probably don’t think that it neon signs serves anything other than an advertisement of services, and good food. Nowadays, however, they have another purpose: providing "vintage charm".
