Neon Signs have been around since the late 19th Century, but show no indication of diminishing as a dominant, versatile and durable sign solution. A quality manufactured neon light can last for many decades, and with maintenance, can last much longer still. Unlike many other kinds of signs, neon lights are still largely a handcrafted product. Glass tubes of variable thickness are heated over a super-hot flame and are hand bent to shape by a neon artisan. When cooled, they are filled with neon gas. Other elements are introduced to the mix to create an array of colors. An electric current is then passed through the tube, causing the neon to glow brilliantly.
