LED Signs vs Neon Signs: The Digital Signage Battle

It has been the ultimate question when it comes to digital signage. What really is better – LED signs or neon signs? Of course, there are situations where LED signs would fare better than neon signs and vice versa. These are technological innovations that have allowed businesses to bloom without spending thousands and thousands of dollars to advertise their products and services. For small businesses however, they have to choose one over the other and that is what post aims to answer.

In terms of price, LED signs generally cost cheaper than neon signs. There is an initial price difference between the two and LED signs cost cheaper if you are talking about that. When we say initial price, this excludes the maintenance, total cost of purchase, and operational costs of the product.

LED signs also consume less space than neon signs. This is because LED signs are approximately 1/3 to 1/5 thinner than neon signs which tend to be wider and taller than LED panels. LED signs are perfect for windows and walls and so are neon signs so business owners won’t really have a problem with this factor. In terms of depth, though, neon signs pack a thicker depth because they normally measure 3-5 inches deep as compared to LED panels that are only 1 inch thick. Because of their relatively-smaller sizes, LED signs are cheaper to ship than neon signs.

Clarity is so important when buying indoor or outdoor LED message board sign because you want passersby to see what information you want to share. LED signs would win this competition as neon signs tend to become a little blurry especially if viewed from a distance. Indoor LED messages are brighter and more appealing to customers, leaving a clear image in their mind as they drive by.

LED signs need no maintenance because no gasses are involved in its manufacture. LED light bulbs don’t run out and they operate for a longer time than neon signs. With neon signs, gasses make the light glow so if they run out, then your neon sign has to be replaced.

Clearly, LED signs are more practical and beneficial for small business owners. The price of LED signs may initially be a little expensive for local and small stores but every dollar spent is worth it because LED panels last longer and are more efficient than neon signs.
