What are the main differences between LED and Neon channel letter lighting?

  • LED and Neon signs cost about the same price.  LED signs are typically slightly less expensive to make.  Usually about 10% cheaper to manufacture.
  • LED Channel letter signs are brighter and have a higher lighting clarity than Neon lit signs. 
  • LED lit signs have a much wider range of flashing lights and animation capabilities. 
  • LED Channel letter sign lighting is more environmentally friendly and cost effective.
  • Around 8 times less electrical energy is needed to light an LED sign.
  • LED lit signs do not leak toxic gases like Neon signs do.
  • LED lit signs require very little maintenance and have a much higher life expectancy then Neon lit signs.
  • Maintenance and/or repair costs for Neon signs are very costly compared to LED.

The one area where Neon lit signs excel over LED signs is that they have a wider range of colors and hues to pick from.
