If you’re reading this, you’re one of our neon aficionados. The buying of neon is not difficult. However, if you’re new to neons, you’re likely to have a lot of questions about the buying procedure. With our gorgeous neon designs and high sign quality, The Neonist is on a mission to bring light and joy to the world. To assist you in making the best neon purchase possible, we’ve put together this guide with everything you need to know.
First and foremost. Decide on the neon’s function.
The most critical question to ask when purchasing a neon is what it will be used for. Is the sign going to be exhibited at your wedding reception? Is your wedding reception going to be held inside or outside? Indoor neon signs are not waterproof, however outdoor neon signs are. Will you display this sign in your living room? Would you like it to be displayed in the nursery or children’s playroom? Are you a coffee shop, boutique, or beauty parlor owner looking to add an eye-catching touch to the interior of your establishment?
Why are all of these questions being asked? It’s because the neon’s purpose dictates many of its characteristics.
If your wedding reception will be held outside, a neon seller will need to know ahead of time so that it may be exhibited outside. If you want to utilize neon as a decorative component in your nursery, you don’t necessarily need the hanging pieces; instead, choose a neon with an acrylic frame stand. If you don’t have access to a power outlet near the neon sign, you can order a rechargeable battery (though it will limit your size choice).
It’s All About the Size
Take a look at the wall or place where you want your neon to be installed before placing a purchase. It will assist you in determining the size of your neon sign. Try measuring your wall or area to see what percentage of it you’d like your neon to take up. The Neonist can make whatever neon size you want; just let us know what you like. The size of the neon sign also plays a role in determining the ultimate price. The higher the price, the larger the sign.
Color and Design
The Neonist offers a wide range of design options, including colors, typefaces, and shapes. We enjoy working with clients who have a clear vision of what they want. If you’re not sure, don’t worry — we can make a realistic mockup to assist you understand your feelings about each design style. The price of a neon can also be influenced by its design. A neon sign with a curving typeface will be more expensive than one with a block font.
The Sign’s Supporting Structure
Another neon feature to think about is this one. There are a variety of neon sign backings available, including clear acrylic, colorful PVC (to make the sign even more vibrant), and gold and silver mirror backings (for a real WOW effect). The cost of each type of backing varies.
Finally, but certainly not least. Your financial situation
The cost of neon signs varies depending on their size and design. Starting a conversation with the neon studio by establishing your target budget is a great way to get things started. This aids in the resolution of some potential misconceptions in the order process’ later stages.
