WHAT IS LED NEON?
Here’s a close up of a typical LED neon flex tube. LED flex is made with PVC & acrylic, powered by LED lights and cased in 6x12mm 8x16mm or 10x22mm tube thickness depending on your sign's design and size.
LED flex neon products are more cost-effective, durable, energy-efficient, and safer than glass neon products. They also provide an incredible visual impact that is on par with or even greater than you would get with a traditional glass neon sign. Our LED neon signs have a range of brightness options and flash, flicker, and pulse control. This allows our customers to have more flexibility in specific lighting settings
TUBE SIZE AND COLOURS
Our LED neon signs come in up to 11 vibrant colours* with two main neon jacket options: Colour Jacket: the neon tube shows colour when the light is off White Jacket: the neon tube appears white when the light is off *Due to the hand-rendered nature of our neon signs, they can be subject to variations and slight discolorations.
RGB LED means red, blue and green LEDs. RGB LED products combine these three colours to produce over 16 million hues of light. For an additional fee, customers may choose to have their sign made using RGB, which provides extra scope for colour mixing to create a huge range of unique shades. London Neon can also program a unique light sequence of your choosing.
Acrylic Backboards Shapes: All of our signs adhere to 5mm acrylic backboards. You have a choice of the following free backboard options:
Cut to Shape or Text: The OG backing for LED neon signs. The acrylic board is cut following the shape of the neon tubes. This style is ideal as it provides the most stability and versatility for your sign. We recommend using this acrylic backboard if you want to hang your sign from the ceiling or in front of a window or mount it on a load-bearing wall.
Full Board: The neon tubes adhere to a solid rectangular or square acrylic board. We recommend using a full board if you will hang it from the ceiling or if you plan to use it for special events and will need to move your neon often.
Line or Invisible: This style is popular for text-based neon signs because it’s minimalist and virtually invisible when the sign is lit. This simple backing holds the letters together, but can also be quite fragile, so we recommend using this backing only if your sign is under 100cm or you decide to mount your LED neon sign to a wall permanently. In addition to these three options, we also offer acrylic boxes and stands for an additional cost.
Acrylic Stand: The sign is mounted onto an acrylic stand. We only recommend this option for smaller signs that you plan to place on a tabletop or on the floor.
Acrylic Box: Your neon sign in enclosed inside an acrylic box. We only recommend this option for smaller signs that you plan to place on a tabletop or on the floor. Acrylic Backboard Styles: Customers have the option of adding unique backboard styles to their neon sign for an additional cost.
Mirrored and Coloured: You can combine our LED neon tubing with a customized acrylic board. Above is our range of acrylic backboard options and a few examples of customized coloured acrylic boards that you can use to make your neon sign more dynamic and visually impactful.
UV printing: UV printing is a form of digital printing that uses ultraviolet lights to dry or cure ink as it is printed onto an acrylic backboard. UV printing can be used to create different types of signage, branding logos, and intricate or complex designs due to the excellent resolution it produces. London Neon offers UV printing on select standard signs and custom orders. For custom orders, we require our customers to submit hi-res images.
For most living rooms, we recommend between 29'' / 75 cm and 79'' / 200 cm For most bedrooms, we recommend between 20'' / 50 cm and 60'' / 150 cm For most kid rooms, we recommend between 20'' / 50 cm and 40'' / 100 cm For most shop windows and offices, we recommend between 40'' / 100 cm and 99'' / 250 cm For most weddings, we recommend between 29'' / 75 cm and 59'' / 150 cm
WHAT COMES IN THE BOX?
Your Guide to Electrical Components: Unless otherwise stated, every London Neon indoor sign comes with a free remote or rotary dimmer, advertising screws or command strips for mounting your neon sign, a power pack (for medium and large signs), and a 4m transparent cord that plugs into a 12V certified adapter. The adapter has an additional 2m of black cable that plugs into a power socket. For use without a power socket, we recommend purchasing an external battery power pack to plug your sign into. Our LED neon signs include pre-drilled holes on the acrylic backboard. For wall mounting your new neon light you may need fishing wire, rope or heavy duty removable hooks in addition to the standard fixing pieces provided.
Follow these step-by-step guidelines for wall mounting your new LED neon sign.
Using advertising screws:
Step 1: Open the package carefully and pull out the supplied wall mount kit.
Step 2: Mark the ideal spot you want to hang it with a pencil. Make sure to mark the ones that match up with the pre-drilled holes on the LED neon sign.
Step 3: Take the drill and drill the holes at every spot that has been marked. Use the hammer to pound the wall anchors or the while gib.
Step 4: Take the longer hollow mounting pin up to the hole.
Step 5: Match the sign holes with the small ones through the hollow entry.
Step 6: Repeat the process with other hollow bases and turn the LED neon sign on.
Using a hanging kit:
Step 1: Thread the wire through the ceiling mounts.
Step 2: Measure the distance carefully and then drill them to the ceiling.
Step 3: Thread the cable wire through the aluminum holes in the acrylic backboard.
Step 4: Tighten and secure the wire. Repeat the process with the other side. Plug in and let the LED neon sign lighten up your space.
