It's never too early to start thinking about your Christmas decorations. Before you know it, the annual celebrations will be upon us once again, and you don't want to leave your decoration-buying until the last minute. Instead of opting for typical Christmas lights and signs that anyone could buy, why not opt for a unique neon sign to really kick the festivities up a notch? They're safer than traditional neon lights, and are bound to make an impact during the holiday season.
In this guide, we will discuss the different types of neon Christmas signs available, where you can place them, and the very best place to hang them for all to see.
Different types of neon Christmas signs
The design you choose when it comes to your new neon sign is completely your choice. However, if you're struggling to decide, you can take inspiration from the various signs that are already out there. Popular choices include:
Festive characters: nothing says Christmas quite like festive decorations shaped like Father Christmas, reindeer or snowmen. They set the tone straight away, and are instantly recognisable. You can even get customisable colours to really make your sign your own.
Christmas Tree: A Christmas tree is a staple in most homes at Christmas time, so why not display a festive tree sign? Neon signs are bright and colourful, and are a great way to get you into the Christmas spirit
Baubles: no matter their shape or size, Christmas wouldn't be the same without baubles. Choose from an array of colours and designs and you've got a perfect sign to display in your home. Here at Neon Vibes®, you can choose from a group of baubles, or just a singular one.
Christmas greetings: you don't always have to opt for a festive shape. A simple phrase such as a Merry Christmas neon sign could be enough. It gets the message across and looks great whilst doing so.
Where can I place my LED Christmas sign?
Where you place your Christmas neon sign depends on a number of factors. First of all, if you're a business looking to add some festive cheer, you'll want to place the sign somewhere where it can be seen by all. Placing the sign in your shop window is a great idea. It greets the public as they walk past, as is a fun way to spread Christmas joy. Placing the sign in your office space could even bring cheer to your staff at what is, usually, their busiest period.
If you're looking to decorate your home, a great place to put a brand-new neon sign is in your window. Everyone likes to gaze at how homes have decorated at Christmas, so make yours one to remember. You can even opt for waterproof, weatherproof versions of signs to place on your wall. However, these signs will need to be maintained and looked after to keep looking their best.
Where you place your sign is completely your choice, but placing it somewhere visible will help you get the most out of your brand-new purchase. You can browse our full collection of festive signs on our website.
Benefits of using a festive neon sign at Christmas
One of the greatest benefits of a Christmas neon sign is the unique and festive glow that it can bring to your home. It can be the perfect centrepiece for Christmas parties, and won't go unnoticed by your guests. It can pair brilliantly with your existing décor, and can be placed anywhere in your space easily.
LED neon signs are also safer than traditional neon signs as they don't produce as much heat. That's why you're more likely to see Christmas trees decorated with LED lights and fairy lights due to their safe nature. They're also safer to touch and won't burn. LED lights are also the more energy efficient option, saving you money on your energy bills.
Although you can find pre-made signs, you can also design your very own Christmas neon sign to add a more unique touch to your home. For a bespoke quote, you can tell us exactly what you want here.
Things to consider before buying a neon Christmas sign
Before you buy your brand-new sign, there are a few elements you need to bear in mind, including:
If you only have a small space, you don't want to fill it with a giant sign; the same applies to larger spaces, as small signs can get lost in the crowd. Consider how much space you have to play with, and craft your very own bespoke sign to your exact measurements.
Christmas is all about bright lights, greens, reds and golds. If you're going for a festive setting, try looking towards these colours to really enhance the space and make a statement. Bright pinks and purples may not suit, depending on your existing décor.
Serif fonts are more formal and script, whereas sans serif fonts have a more fun element to them. If you're looking for a font for your Christmas sign, both serif and sans serif work perfectly; script font can present a more regal atmosphere, whereas novelty text is great a less formal setting.
It is important to know your budget before you design a custom neon sign or buy one pre-made. You don't want to spend too much on your sign, especially if it is only being used once a year. Set yourself a limit, and look for a fun design that suits your needs exactly.
