Neon Flex Signs - FAQ

Why should I buy from The Neon Sign?

We test all our Neon/LED Flex signs with a set of QC list both in-process and before we ship out. Customer satisfaction is the number one priority. All our signs are handmade by a team of experts.

Unlike most Chinese companies, we answer the phone! We provide phone support for your questions before ordering delivery.

We provide a 1-year warranty from the date of order if there are any manufacturing defects.

We offer all possible Neon/LED Flex. We have options for standoff signs, desktop signs (like TV stands), metal frames, and more. We also ship oversized signs!. If you want a mirror-like finish in the backing, we can do that too. Please feel free to ask us any kind of backing, installation, or any other customization you want, and we can do it for you.

With an additional cost, we can add a dimmer option to the sign. Most of our tubes are very bright; hence you may want to control the brightness on the sign. The dimmer feature helps to reduce light if the sign installed in the reception of an office or the house.

Neon/LED signs have similar brightness as Neon Glass signs just not as fragile because its made of silicon. These are very smooth and elegant looking signs.

What is Neon/LED Flex sign made?

Neon/Flex signs can be manufactured of acrylic/plastic backing or metal frame (if you choose this option); however, the tubes are made of silicone and are very elegant. The luminous glow of the sign occurs due to the LED inside the silicon tubes.

Here is a photo of how it looks:

How do Neon/LED Flex sign actually light-up?

Neon/Flex tubes are made of silicon. Inside the tubes, there is a PCB strip with LED on it, which will give off light. When it powers up, it gives the same feeling as the Neon Glass tube.

Here is a photo of some of the strips from inside:

Once the tubes are installed on the backing, we then connect all the tubes to make the complete circuit for all the tubes to light up.

How do Neon/LED Flex tubes attach to the Plastic Acrylic backing?

We use glue to attach the tubes into the backing. Glue is clear and isn't visible on the back or front. Before we glue, we first trace the tubes into the backing and laser cut 1-2 mm so that the tube can be pushed into the backing and then glued together, this provides a very tight and secure grip of the tubes into the backing without any worry about getting off.

Will I see the cables in front of the sign?

We take extra time and effort to make sure the sign you are getting is looking pretty, but if the sign has a black backing, we route the cables from the back of the sign so you won't see it.

Got the sign, but something is not right, what's next?

In this regrettable and rare occurrence, we ask you to please take photos of broken signs, missing parts, or anything and email us so we can review with our production team and come back with a resolution or any additional information within 24 hours.

It is essential to report any issues within 24-48 hours of receiving a sign. This way, we can file the required claims with the shipping carrier.

Scenarios:
  • I am out of town, can't open the box
  • This purchase is a birthday gift, can't open the box
  • I opened one box today and opened the second box later but found it broken.
  • Etc
In either of the above scenarios, we request you to PLEASE open the sign first to ensure its working and pack it back. I know its a bit extra work, but reporting an issue on time is worth it. Shipping warranty will be void in the event you are not able to report any problems with the sign within the first 24-48 hours.

Can I get a Neon Flex sign that will stand up without needing to be wall mounted?

Absolutely! We offer Neon Stands, which are pretty much like a TV Stands. They are very stable and will hold the entire sign stable on a table or a leveled surface. We can do this for any size as well. Here are a few of the photos of how the sign will look like:

What if I just want a regular sign?

Customers design all our signs online before ordering. But we have thousands of standard designs you can choose from if you don't want to go to the trouble of creating a new one.

Are the signs battery operated?

All Custom Neon signs are plug-in only; this is because battery-powered signs don't hold power well and fades very quickly. Many customers have purchased external battery packs, but their strength and efficiency will depend on each sign.

How do I hang my neon light?

Custom Neon is not responsible for the wall mounting or installation of any of our products. We do recommend hanging the sign with the chain provided, but as we do not know the specifications of your establishment, we can't give recommendations for wall mounting. Common installations include:

  • Inside a window facing out
  • Inside a window facing in
  • Mounted on an indoor wall

Depending on how you want to install your sign, we can include standoffs in the final product. Standoffs are small, clear buffers that keep the sign from touching material in front of it — mostly seen in outward-facing signs.

Why are the small marks on my sign?

All signs from The Neon Store are handmade so that each sign might have a small tool or glue marks. When you turn the sign on, you won't see any marks as they are minor.

Can I use my Neon Store sign outdoors?

Our standard signs are not watertight and are therefore not suited for any outdoor use. If requested for an added cost, we can make the sign outdoor-friendly.

What are the shipping costs?

We offer free shipping to 48 States in the US. For other countries, we will charge a small fee (depending on the country). We adjust the power of the sign as per your country.

What is the returns policy?

As every sign is custom made to order, we do not accept any returns. All sales are final.

What's the warranty on the sign?

All our signs come with a one-year manufacturing defect warranty. If something is wrong with the sign, please email a photo and a description of what is wrong to sales@the-neon-store.com within 24 hours of receiving the sign, and we will do what we can to fix or replace the sign.
