If you want to take your event to the next level and have it last in people’s memories for a long time, a neon sign is one of the best ways to help you achieve this. From weddings to baby showers to corporate events, neon lights are chic and bring out the fun through colour and ambient lighting.

However, when on the search for a neon sign, there’s one major decision you need to make: whether to buy or hire a sign. And while both have their own benefits, there are several reasons why buying a neon sign will always be the better option.

Buying Allows You to Make Your Own Designs

The biggest benefit of buying a neon sign is that you can design your own sign from scratch. This means you pick everything from the colour, size and design that go into the sign. Generally speaking, there are several benefits of creating your own neon sign over buying a ready-made sign.

  • Custom signs make a statement and show clients what your business stands for
  • They’re unique and stand out compared to generic ready-made signs
  • You can match your custom neon sign to the event’s theme
  • A permanent neon sign that you own grab attention and attract potential customers

Additionally, LED neon lights can be uniquely designed for specific events.

Buying a neon sign is a Long Term Investment

Buying a neon sign for a business or event can be a long term asset. This is because our neon lights can be reused many years after purchase. On average, our lights have a lifespan of over 50,000 hours. LED neon lights for the holidays are some of the best investments for business owners. For example, rather than hiring a Christmas neon every year, it’s more convenient to custom-design and buy the sign. More importantly, it’s also cheaper since all our prices are calculated on an individual basis.
