Bringing back the glory with a fresh attitude

Neon signs are an invention that is one of the earliest forms of advertising and have been used for decades at this point.

The flashy and bright colors which are used to make neon signs make them identifiable and legible from a considerable distance away, making them a classic business promotion device.

The main selling point for installing neon signs is that they work to their maximum effectiveness during the nighttime, thanks to their bright colors.

Furthermore, another thing to consider is their lifespan. Neon signs are said to last more than a decade. However, they cannot last forever, and there will come a time when you will start to see signs of the brightness fading away or the colors not popping enough to light up the entire street.

However, that certainly does not mean that you have to dispose of the sign,  which has been the trademark of your establishment ever since it opened in the neighborhood, and this is where we come in.

Signs that you may need a sign restoration

Before visiting a vintage sign restoration specialist to get your sign repaired and good as new, here are some signs which may help you

make the decision whether to get it restored or not in the first place.

Flickering Lights

Although neon signs boast a considerably lengthy life, lasting for up to more than a decade, they are still susceptible to many faults and there can come a time when they start to show signs that they may need to get restored.

One such sign that you can easily spot is the frequent occurrence of flickering lights in the neon sign. There are many possible reasons that this may occur, such as a faulty transformer.

This is especially prevalent in neon signs because of the fact that neon signs usually require a significantly higher voltage power as compared to another lighting.

In addition to that, another reason for this electrical fault to occur may be that the wiring within your vintage sign may start to short-circuit.

This can result due to a variety of different reasons such as possible storm damage which has not been addressed yet, possible water seepage into the inner wiring of the sign, or the wiring in your sign not being changed for a considerable amount of time.

Whatever the reason may be, if the lights on your vintage sign start to flicker out of nowhere, it is best to consult a vintage sign restoration specialist.

Dim Lights

The main function of a neon sign is to be used as a tool for business promotion, and it is lit up all night to alert any pedestrian of the business.

Due to the extended time neon signs are lit, there may come a time when it starts to take a toll on them, resulting in the sign dimming down.

In addition to extensive use, there are many other reasons that a sign may start to appear less bright. One of the possible reasons that this can occur may be that the glass tubes which are illuminated in your sign can start to crack.

The tricky part about this issue occurring is that even the smallest of cracks, which may not be visible to the naked eye, can cause the light to dim down.

How this works is that the crack in the tubes causes an opening in the glass tubes to form. This opening allows the gas within the tubes to leak into the atmosphere, and due to the resulting lower concentration, there is a lack of reactions taking place within the tubes, causing the lights to dim down.

Everyone at Signmakers understands how vital a neon sign is to your business and the historical importance it can have, being a trademark for your shop at some point.

This is why instead of disposing of the sign, consult with one of our specialists right away to get your neon light revamped and revitalized.

    Paul and his team at Signmakers were enthusiastic to participate in the creation of a vintage 1930's rooftop sign for The Original Farmers Market. Paul has incredible energy and he and his talented team dedicated themselves to convert the design into a beautiful illuminated sign. We appreciate their stamina in navigating the complicated city permitting process and their care when installing the sign on the Market's roof.

    I'm an Art Director and needed a sign made for a film set on very short notice. Paul and his team worked with me to find a solution that worked and got it made lightning fast. The communication and customer service was professional -- they're busy and no-nonsense but they know what they're doing. The sign turned out great. I will definitely be working with them again on future projects.

    Please come by place and see for yourself the work SignMakers does, The Gym Venice. I went to them with an idea and they worked with me through a number of designs until it was perfect and better than I envisioned. My signage is the first thing seen when your walking, biking, or driving by and it attracts and lures you in with a curious excitement. Signmakers hit it out of the park for me. I look forward to working with them for my next project!

    After a few months of searching for someone to re-do our business' sign, we were referred to Paul @ Sign Makers. He was super easy to work with and they did a great job!! The sign looks amazing, and I'm sure it will last for years to come!! We spoke to a lot of other companies, who would seem to disappear after a few emails so I'm SO glad we finally found these guys. I highly recommend, they are the best in town!!
