If you're bored of seeing the same old party decorations, consider sprucing up the vibe with a bright, custom LED neon sign. Birthday parties should be fun and memorable, and a party neon sign with various colours and effects could certainly do the trick. Using LED neon lights instead of traditional neon lights can save you money and energy, and they're much safer too. They can operate for around 50,000 hours, ideal if you want to reuse them for another birthday party!

Custom neon signs can also make for a perfect gift, allowing you to show someone just how much you know and love them. In this guide, we will highlight the various elements to consider before choosing a neon birthday sign, and how they can be the best gift and decorative piece.

Things to consider before buying an LED sign

No matter whether your brand-new happy birthday neon sign is for a party or is a gift, there are different factors that you need to consider first. It might be tempting to choose the first bright sign that you see, but there are plenty of variations that could be the perfect match. Before you buy, try to consider:

  • Size: You should think about both the size of the sign you'd like and the size of the room it will take pride of place in. If you're looking for a happy birthday sign for a party, it will need to stand out and grab attention. Therefore, consider a larger sign to serve this important purpose. However, larger signs might not be the best choice for someone's home if it is a gift.

  • Colour: for a birthday party sign to really stand out, bright and bold colours will be the best choice. However, this all depends on the theme. Once you have decided on the extra décor pieces, you can fit your LED neon sign in nicely. As a gift, the colour of the neon light sign will have to suit your loved one's preferences, so you better know them well enough!

  • Font: like colour, choosing a font depends on the usage of the sign and the person it is being bought for. Novelty and sans serif fonts are the perfect choice for fun birthday parties. Script and serif are suited for more formal occasions, so consider the tone of the party first.

  • Budget: the size of the sign, effects such as dimmers and chasers, and whether it is a custom neon sign all affect cost. Having a budget in mind can narrow down your search.

  • Custom or pre-made: Custom neon signs are perfect if you really want to make a unique statement, but there are plenty of bright signs out there that are great for any kind of birthday party. You can view our full neon birthday party sign collection here.
