Neon or LED? It’s a question that pops up all the time. The short, simple answer is that LED signs are far superior to neon signs, and that’s not just because we happen to make LED displays.
Let’s go through the pros and cons of each type of sign, and you’ll see exactly why LED is the way to go.
Neon has been used in signs for almost a hundred years, meaning you know what you’re going to get. It’s a reliable, commonplace technology you’ll find in cities across the planet, and finding a neon sign dealer near you is pretty easy no matter where you live.
One of the biggest advantages of neon signs—and a big reason they’re still around today—is the “romance” factor associated with them, and their use in both films and art.
Yes, neon signs have a sort of warm, comforting light to them, but that doesn’t mean they’re great for advertising.
LED signs have a lot more going for them than nostalgia:
If you’re concerned with the effectiveness of your display in advertising your message, its longevity, and how much it’s going to affect your wallet, LED signs are the right choice for you.
While there are very, very specific scenarios where neon signs might be a better option, those don’t apply to the average business. LED signs get the job done, and they’re here to stay.
