Your business gets only one chance to make a lasting first impression. You must use that the best way possible to rake in the profits, and what better to guide you on your journey than custom LED neon signs. Talk of neon, and the first thing that comes to mind is a dazzling view of Las Vegas, New York or Tokyo shining as bright as stars under hundreds of versatile neon signage. Considered among the most famous places on Earth, these cities have seen businesses use neon signs to attract customers for decades.
There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be doing the same. After all, a neon light boosts your brand’s personality by adding retro class and a quirky new age feel in just the right amounts. At Kings of Neon, we believe smart use of custom LED neon signs can help you make a statement and turn your store into a favourite among customers. Let’s tell you how.
The Advantages of Using Neon Light
Flexible LED neon wall lights have significant advantages over their predecessors that comprised glass tubes, gases and electrodes. Not only are custom neon signages more durable and last longer, but they also consume less power and are cheaper to operate.
Some of the advantages of using LED neon include:
- Increased longevity
- Customization options
- Easy installation and handling
- Energy efficiency
LED neon lights are among the longer-lasting lighting options available today. They have an average run time of 30,000 hours—a whopping 20,000 hours more than their glass predecessors, which could be used for about 10,000 hours.
You can leave them lit for long periods without worrying about damage. LED neon wall lights from Kings of Neon have an approximate lifespan of 50,000 hours.
Wrapped in flexible plastic tubes, modern LED neons are malleable. They can be bent into a lot of different shapes easily. Our Australian design team can help you design custom neon signs in case you don’t find something you like in our extensive catalogue.
Easy Installation and Handling
Neon wall lights are simple to set up. The ones from Kings of Neon come with detailed instructions, which make hanging them an easy task even for those who aren’t confident of their DIY skills. A neon light also remains cool to touch even after prolonged use and can be repaired or replaced easily. Made of acrylic, they’re nearly unbreakable and sturdier than older glass varieties.
Modern LED neon wall lights need a 12v plugged into a 240v transformer compared to glass neons which need 18v. This reduces their power consumption by nearly 20%. LED neons use about the same amount of energy as a 60W–100W light bulb in your home. Moreover, they last way longer than traditional lights. Now, imagine the difference that makes to your power bill and environmental impact.

The Evolution of the Neon Sign
Nobel Prize-winning Scottish chemist William Ramsay discovered neon and other noble gases in the last decade of the 19th century.
But French engineer Georges Claude saw the potential of these gases in the commercial lighting industry. After years of experimentation, Claude introduced the first neon glass tube light at the Paris Motor Show in 1910.
With different noble gases being used to produce an array of colours (see table), the lights became an instant hit. They’ve only evolved for the better since then.
|Gas Used||Color Produced|
The neon lights you see today no longer use glass tubes and electrodes. Instead, they comprise tiny LEDs packed in flexible plastic tubes, individually programmed to emit different colours.
At Kings of Neon, neon products are available in myriad colours and can be hooked to remote control systems to produce various effects.
