CUSTOM NEON SIGNS VS CUSTOM LED NEON SIGNS - WHICH IS BEST?
When choosing between custom neon signs and custom LED neon signs, the key is deciding on the purpose for you sign.
If you have a business that has a really retro feel to it and you want to have authentic signage and you aren’t worried about the cost then choosing custom neon signs would be a good option.
However, if you want to have you signage outside, and you want a neon look without a hefty price tag, then an LED neon sign would make the most sense.
