What are the different backing materials available for neon lights?
All our signs are mounted on high quality acrylic. We currently offer 3 different backing options for our signs. Details for each of these options are listed below.
Our standard backing option works well when you need to be able to see out of the window where your sign will hang. Clear acrylic will allow natural light to through the sign. Electrical components are more noticeable. The neon tubing more subtle then compared with black
Gloss Black Acrylic
Gloss black is the most visible this makes it a good choice for neon advertising signs. This is because of the high contrast between black backing material and the neon tubes. All electrical components will blend in and be out of sight with this option.
UV Printed Acrylic
Your logo, photo or design can be printed on the backing. This is a great option when you want to add images or graphic elements that aren’t workable using neon tube. UV printed signs will look great even when the lights off. Remember this option adds 2 days to the production time of your order.
