This debate has been going on for years now and yet it still rages on. Time and again, businessmen have asked, which one is really better? A LED sign or a neon sign? Business signs are vital to any business, especially small to medium enterprises with no budget for pricey traditional media advertisements. So deciding whether to invest your budget on a LED sign or a neon sign is always an important issue to tackle. Before you make a decision on which one to use for your business, here are some key factors to consider.
1. A LED sign is thinner, and thus lighter, than a neon sign. Therefore, it is easier to install. It is almost like hanging a picture frame on your wall. Of course, this may not be an issue for some entrepreneurs but it is important to note that with a neon sign, you will have to take into consideration the depth during installation because a neon sign’s glass tubing must extend away from its backing. In addition, LED signs are easier to ship, transport and deliver because of its relative lightweight property.
2. A LED sign shines brighter. And by brighter, we do mean bright. This will clearly and effectively broadcast your message even when exposed to direct sunlight or even when viewed from afar.
3. A LED sign is more cost efficient. Initially, you may find that a neon sign is cheaper. However, in the long run, a LED sign will prove to be more budget-friendly. LED signs virtually require no maintenance and the energy consumption of a LED sign is just a fraction of what a neon sign consumes.
4. A LED sign is more environment-friendly. Aside from lesser energy consumption, LED signs do not leak argon and mercury, as neon signs do, which are toxic gases.
5. A LED sign gives you more options when it comes to customizing your advertising message as compared to their neon sign counterparts. You can choose from many animation and color options and thus, you can create better and more effective advertising messages. A LED sign also allows you to change your message more often, without incurring huge costs. Depending on your budget and preference, you can choose a full color LED sign, a tricolor LED sign and even a scrolling LED sign. Talk to your LED sign manufacturer about your options.
