Just Neon Products & Production FAQ

How are Just Neon light signs made?

Just Neon signs are handmade to your approved design using LED flex on an acrylic backing. The materials used are PVC and acrylic. There is no fragile glass that can break, no neon gas, and no mercury.

What is the LED neon flex tube attached to?

Our signs come with an acrylic backboard. You can choose from a variety of options when it comes to this backboard (sometimes the design will determine what backboard is required). The backboard can be cut around the shape so it is contoured and nearly invisible or it can be cut in a desired shape. The backboard color can be clear, metalic, a solid color or UV printed with an image.

What color can I choose?

We have a total of 18 colours (click the colour tab) to choose from. 8 of these are white when the sign is turned off and coloured when the sign is switched on. The remaining 10 colours come with a cover on the tube so that even when the sign is turned off it still shows its colour (just not as bright).

We can also offer a color change option for certain types of signs. Please request a specific quote for this.

What font can I choose?

We offer a whopping great range of 32 fonts including cursive fonts, block fonts and double lined fonts. As far as we know this is the biggest selection offered by any LED neon sign maker. And even better is that we can work with almost any font. If your preferred font isn’t listed on our custom neon sign maker (click the font tab) just contact us with your preferred font and we will make it happen for you!

What if I want a sign that I can’t create using your custom tool?

Our custom sign maker is perfect for creating neon word signs, personalised name signs and neon light quotes. If you are looking for something different, such as a business logo sign, customised open sign, or unique neon artwork, we would love to work with you on a design. We can do almost any font, shape, style and design – turning your vision into a neon masterpiece! Contact us with your ideas now.

Do you offer a free design service?

If you purchase a custom sign we will be happy to offer a design service, offering one or more designs for your approval, at no extra charge. If you have a change of mind and wish to cancel your order before the sign goes into production we will happily offer a refund minus a R1000 design fee to cover our costs. Please note that once a custom sign order is approved and has gone into production we are no longer able to offer a refund.

Are your LED neon lights battery operated or do they plug in?

Most of Custom Neon’s range of neon signs, lights, lamps and wall art plug into a power socket. We do offer battery pack options for very small signs, lights and lamps.

Most Just Neon products come with a 4.9ft transparent cord which plugs into a US certified AC adaptor. The adaptor has an additional 3-6ft of black cable that plugs into the socket. A dimmer and remote control can also be purchased at checkout.

How do I hang / wall mount my neon light?

Hanging your new neon light sign is surprisingly easy.  Just Neon signs weigh 6-11lb on average and include pre-drilled holes on the acrylic backboard.  On average, most signs weigh approximately 6-11lb. Just Neon signs are safe to transport and easy to install.

For wall mounting your new neon light you’ll need one of our Sign Hanging or Wall Mounting kits. You can also do it yourself with hardware store items:

  • Fishing wire (we recommend using heavy duty wire and using a fisherman knot/s)
  • Rope (we recommend securely knotting)
  • Heavy duty removable hooks (We recommend using several removable hooks to hold up to 6-11lb)

Note: The above is a recommendation only. Custom Neon is not responsible for the wall mounting and/or installation of any of our products.

Can I get a LED neon light that will stand up without needing to be wall mounted?

Absolutely, we have several options available:

  1. Neon lights, lamps and sculptures in a clear acrylic box;
  2. Neon lights, lamps and sculptures with an acrylic base to allow for stand-up signs.

What are the backboard options?

Just Neon signs are mounted on an acrylic backboard.  Our team will select the best backboard option based on the design you’ve chosen.  Please let us know if you have a preference and, where possible, we will assist.

The most common options for backboards are shown below:

For all cursive fonts we will use cut around /contoured acrylic backing as shown in Option 1.

For non cursive/basic fonts we will use a rectangle acrylic backing as shown in Option 2.

If you have a preference on what backing is used please let us know during checkout.

Our backing acrylic comes clear as standard however we can provide coloured backboards including Black, White, Metallic  Silver and Gold. We can also offer UV printed backgrounds for multi color, logos, taglines, images or photos. If you have something in mind please ask us.

Do I need a remote / dimmer for my LED neon light?

Our dimmer and remote offers a range of brightness settings, ON & OFF option, and Party Modes which makes the light sign flash, flicker and pulse.

We recommend purchasing the dimmer and remote as it allows you to dim the neon brightness which can help with exposure when taking photos in front of new neon sign or having the neon light as a feature for a photo shoot or wedding.

What are the small marks on my sign?

Because Just neon light signs are handmade there are sometimes small marks on the acrylic or glue marks where the PVC tube holding flexible LED the has been attached to the acrylic. In the rare instance that the marks are evident they are always minor and not visible when the sign is turned on.

Can I use my new light sign outdoors?

Our standard LED neon signs are indoor signs but they are perfectly fine to use outdoors at events, parties, etc… provided they do not get wet. Our standard signs are not watertight and cannot be exposed to wet weather.

We can create beautiful outdoor neon signs on request. Please select “Outdoor” during checkout (for custom signs) or contact us with your requirements. Please note that outdoor signs often feature visible seal marks where the neon has been waterproofed – these are clear and can only be seen when the neon is switched off.

What other types of signs can you do?

We can create indoor and outdoor neon signs, neon business signs, open signs, LED neon lights for home décor, bar signs, neon wall art, weddings, birthdays, events, personalised gifts, and more. We also offer UV printing to complement your neon sign!

What if I want a sign that is only partially neon?

You’ve come to the right place, Custom Neon also offers UV printing, so we can help you with a combination of UV printing and lightweight LED neon!
