The Process

Every neon sign that exists was made by a team of skilled craftspeople.

While each shop has their particular style, the process has not changed much since it began in 1920. We take colored glass tubes and bend them with heat, a little bit of air, and complex levels of manual dexterity. A metal electrode is spliced at each end and the tube is filled with one of a variety of harmless noble gasses. To bring it to life, an electric current excites the gas in the tube, causing it to emit that luminous color beloved the world over. We believe neon is part of our American cultural identity. Rather than let this identity fade, we believe we can help it stand side-by-side with the modern technology that drives America today.
