Neon Trivia
  • The gas inside a neon sign isn't always neon. Neon, used by itself, produces red or orange.  To make other colors, related inert gasses like  argon, xenon, or helium are needed.  Often, a small drop of mercury is added to increase the light intensity.  
  • Neon is present in less than 0.002 percent of our atmosphere.  However, despite that small percentage, neon is the fifth most common element in the universe.
  • Georges Claude is commonly recognized as the "father of neon". He was the first person to create glowing neon tubes in 1910. He was also the first to use bent glass tubes in a sign
  • The first neon sign ever sold in the United States was purchased by Earle C. Anthony.  He bought the sign in 1923, to use in a Packard car dealership.  He paid over $24,000 dollars for the sign.  That's close to $500,000 in today's dollars, once you adjust for inflation.
  • Neon is lighter than air, just like hydrogen or helium.
  • One gallon of compressed neon can fill more than 1000 linear feet of glass tubing
  • Neon is also leveraged in lasers.  It also used to be in the cathode ray tubes of older televisions.

What Can Neon Do For Your Business?

Wondering why you should use neon signs in your business? Consider this:

  • The U.S. Small Business Administration has this to say: Signage is the most effective, yet least expensive, type of advertising for small businesses.
  • Neon draws attention 24/7. It promotes your business, even when you are closed.
  • Appearances matter. Buyers make their purchase decisions, in part, based on how professional your storefront looks.
  • A neon sign in your window reinforces your brand...it is, many times, the first impression for potential new customers.
  • The U.S. Census Bureau says that 1 of every 5 families moves to a new city... every year. This creates a need to constantly message potential new customers!
  • Our Neon signs are professionally designed, extremely bright, and draw attention in a way that traditional backlit signage never will.

Small Business Signage Tips

How much business would you lose if a potential customer didn't know you're open? Your open sign is the most critical piece of secondary signage. In fact, if spend a bit more...for a larger size, that upgrade can likely pay for itself. A handy rule of thumb is to allocate one inch of letter height for every ten feet away a potential customer is.

Neon does more than just advertise your brand. You can also leverage it to highlight specific products or services. To increase sales for a specific product, choose an item with a higher margin, and place a sign advertising that in your front window. For example, if you own a restaurant, advertise your dish that makes you the most money.

We stock an extensive variety of signs for specific business types. However, we also sell custom neon...with your choice of sizes, typestyles, words, and colors. Often, a custom-made sign will attract more attention than a stock sign. There's no compromise in the messaging, as it says exactly what you want it to. That said, we highly recommend short "action oriented" phrases. Customers won't read a long sign...they react much better to breif, "call to action" messages,  like "25% OFF" or "CLEARANCE SALE". 

BudgetNeon.com sells only neon, but as part of the BrightSigns family, we also sell other products, like LED displays and backlit signage. See BrightLEDSigns.com for LED signage, and check out BrightSigns.com for other businesses in the BrightSigns family. We've been in business in 2008, and our primary goal is help small businesses leverage signage to produce more sales.
