Why Are Neon Signs So Expensive?

We explain what makes up the cost of a Radikal Neon sign, and help you understand how to request a sign to best fit your budget.

Firstly, our signs aren’t expensive - you can typically compare the cost of our LED neon signs to traditional neon signs at around 1/3 the cost of a traditional neon sign.

This is because we use LED Flex Neon as opposed to the traditional method of gas & glass. While all of our LED signs are still handmade with love, the traditional production method of blowing glass & filling that glass with gas is not how we do it. That process is a mastered art known by few and done exceptionally by even fewer - so when there’s only a handful of people able to make neon signs through that complicated process the price is naturally high. Not to mention, neon glass is not a cheap material!

Our production team cut & bend lengths of a specially developed LED Flex Neon we named the Rad Super Mini LED and adhere it to perspex backing plates, this helps the design keep its shape. This process is much more straightforward (and a whole lot safer) than using neon gas & glass.

How are our prices made up?

Our LED neon signs have many cost components in their creation and production which influences the price, understanding them is handy to getting the best from your budget.

There are three main factors that drive the price of our neon signs:
  1. The length of LED Neon required to create your sign.
  2. The complexity of your sign. For example: tight bends,or large scale signs that require 2 technicians at one time.
  3. The labour hours required to actually design and make your custom masterpiece come to life – exactly as you imagined.

When thinking about what you’d like made, consider these 3 factors and compare them to your budget, you can always ask us to help provide a price or clarify anything too - all of our quotes are free, hit the button below to grab a quote of any shape or size!
