What goes into the making of a neon sign:

  • Time (designing, glass bending, processing, assembly)

  • Materials (neon, backing, transformers)

  • Installation (if required)

  • The time and cost associated with a neon sign / art depends on the size of the piece, the ultimate destination (external retail sign 20’ high? or on a living room wall?), permitting or electrical complexities, the number / type of letters or images, and the complexity of the graphics, backing, etc.

here’s how a neon sign comes together:

Glass Tubes

  • Hand bent over gas flame

  • Vacuum filled with Neon or Argon


  • A neon sign is electrical - so wires will most always be visible or hidden.

  • Wires are used to connect glass tubes to each other and to the transformer to illuminate the neon tubes.

Transformer/POWER SUPPLY

  • Necessary to power the neon tubes

  • Preferably attached to the neon sign to create an intact lighting fixture

  • The transformer can be wired remotely- but there will be a wires connecting the sign to the remote transformer

    • The transformer should be placed as close to the tubes as possible. 6 ft is considered the maximum distance.


  • A sheet, grid, or container that unites and protects the components of the completed sign.

  • Material that the glass is fixed to for hanging and to increase the durability of the sign.
