What is the smallest letter height?

The minimum height of the lettering we can manufacture is dependent on the diameter of glass we will be using for the sign. If we manufacture your sign in 8mm glass, which has limited colours, we can do as small as a 40-50mm letter height, in 10mm glass you would be looking at a height around 80-90mm, depending on the font style.

Is there a limit to the neon colours available?

There is but we have a wide range of colours that can be viewed on our Colour Selector Page

Why does my neon sign or neon art require an isolator/fireman’s switch?

An isolator switch is required so that if a fire occurs in the building the sign can be switched off, this stops the high voltage running down the water that is sprayed on any fire that occurs in the building. Neon is less likely than any other electrical device in a building to catch fire as they have various protections built in order to switch the sign off if a fault occurs.
