Neon signs are currently very trendy pieces that you can use to elevate the look of your home or business. While there are a lot of companies that design and manufacture neon signs, there are only a few that are considered to be the best when it comes to producing beautiful and high-quality neon signs. One of those companies is Yellowpop, a LED neon sign manufacturer that was founded in 2018 and is known for making custom neon sign in different shapes and sizes.
What is Yellowpop?
Yellowpop is a home décor company that focuses on designing, manufacturing, and selling LED neon signs. The company was founded by Jeremy Cortial and Ruben Grigri, two individuals that are passionate about art, fashion, and lifestyle and wanted to help people create spaces at home where they can express their uniqueness or individuality.
The goal of Yellowpop is to give people the ability to be bold and bright by designing their bedrooms and other areas of their homes using neon signs that are colorful, vibrant, and fun. Besides looking amazing, the LED neon signs that Yellowpop sells don’t break and don’t heat up, so they are very safe to use and display even in the smallest of bedrooms. In addition, if you are worried about the neon signs consuming too much energy, Yellowpop designed their LED signs to be energy-efficient so that they have lower power consumption compared to most neon signs on the market.
Yellowpop consists of design teams, artist partners, and collaborators that are working and partnering with the company from all over the world. Some of the artists that have collaborated with Yellowpop during the company’s early years include David Elia, Jean Andre, Jonathan Adler, and Girl Knew York. Besides being able to purchase neon signs that are designed by renowned and popular artists, people will also be able to design their own neon signs through Yellowpop.
How to Create Custom Yellowpop Neon Signs
As we have stated earlier, Yellowpop allows customers to create their custom neon signs through the company’s website, Yellowpop.com. You have a variety of choices when it comes to the text you want to appear on the neon sign, the color of the neon lights, the color of the tube that houses the lights, and the size of the sign. To know more, here is the step-by-step guide on how to create custom neon signs on Yellowpop’s website.
Visit the Yellowpop Website
Of course, the first thing you need to do if you want to get custom neon signs is to go to the Yellowpop website. Use your preferred browser, and type in “yellowpop.com” in the browser’s address bar. Once you are on the website, you will immediately be greeted by colorful photos, videos, and graphics that will surely entice you to get neon signs for your room or for other areas of your home.
You can immediately start customizing neon signs by clicking on the “DESIGN YOUR NEON” button that you will most likely see once you access the website. If you don’t want to design custom neon signs and just want to browse the products that Yellowpop offers, you can click the “SHOP OUR PIECES” button just below the “DESIGN YOUR NEON” button.
Create a Text and Decide on the Font Style
Once you have clicked on the “DESIGN YOUR NEON” button, you will be redirected to the Create Neon Sign page of Yellowpop. On this page, you will first see the “Choose your text” section, which will enable you to change the text that shows on top of the screen (if you are using a smartphone) or at the left of the screen (if you are using a desktop computer or laptop).
Input the text that you want to appear as your custom neon sign, and then check below the text bar to change the font style of the neon sign. There are dozens of different font styles to choose from, so pick the one that would fit best in the overall look or aesthetic of the room where you want to put the neon sign.
Choose the Color of the Neon Sign
The next step is to choose the color of the neon light. This is also a very important step to take since this will determine how well the neon sign matches the furniture and other items in the room where it will be installed. There are various colors that you can pick from Yellowpop’s selection, like yellow gold, light blue, green, hot pink, and cream white.
There is even an RGB option that allows the neon sign to change colors from time to time, although this option costs more than the standard colors. Take note that there are some colors in the selection that can appear white when the lights are turned off (unless you select a matching tube). To check the colors that turn white when off, you can click the “View Color Palette” button.
Select a Tube Type
After selecting the color of the neon sign’s light, you should then select the color of the tube that houses the LED lights. The common type of tube for Yellowpop neon signs is the white tube, which is an ordinary translucent led light tube that has minimal effect on the color of the lights when they are activated.
But, if you want the neon sign to still have the same color whenever it is turned off, you can buy the “Color Matching” tube that matches the color of the neon lights you chose. Although you need to keep in mind that there are some colors that don’t have color-matching tubes, and there are also colors that are only available with a white tube option.
Pick the Size of the Neon Sign
Next, you should pick the size of the neon sign. Yellowpop offers three standard sizes: small, medium, and large. The measurements (width and height) of the small size are 45×12 centimeters, the medium size are 57x15cm, and the large size are 91x23cm.
But if you want to have a bigger neon sign than the standard sizes offered by Yellowpop, you have the option to create a custom size right below the standard size buttons. You can use the slider to go from the smallest size (45x12cm) to the biggest size available (300x78cm). Keep in mind that the price of the neon sign will increase the bigger you want it to be. In addition, if the neon sign is more than 43 inches wide, Yellowpop would have to split the sign into multiple pieces before shipping it to you.
Choose a Backing Type
The backing should be picked next after choosing the size of the neon sign. There are four options on the Yellowpop website in regards to the backing type for neon signs, and these are hollow-out, cut-to-shape, full board, and stand.
The hollow-out backing type features the most transparent and discreet backing out of all types, as the backing doesn’t even look visible from afar. The cut-to-shape backing type features an acrylic display that follows the shape of the neon sign, and this type of backing ensures that the structure of the neon sign would remain intact for much longer compared to the hollow-out type.
The full board backing type has an acrylic display that is shaped as a square or rectangle, depending on the height and width of your neon sign. The stand, as its name already suggests, is the backing type that has a stand so that the neon sign can be placed on the floor or on top of a table or desk.
Decide on Whether You Will Place the Neon Sign Indoors or Outdoors
The final step in customizing the neon sign is to pick if the sign will be used indoors or outdoors. If you are going to install the neon sign indoors, there wouldn’t be any special features or treatments that will be done on the lights and the tubes. But, if you want to install the neon sign outdoors, you should click the “Outdoors” button near the bottom of the page so that Yellowpop will add water protective coating on the sign, which will then prevent water and electrical damage on the product.
Review Your Order or Save and Finish Later
When you are done customizing everything for the neon sign, you have the choice of reviewing your order or saving your design and finishing it later once you have decided to actually buy the product. Once you click the “Review Your Order” button, you will be redirected to a page where you can review the things you customized for the neon sign, like the text, the color, the size, the font, etc. Then, you can add the product to your car or bag by clicking the “Add to Bag” button. When the product is in your bag, you can then check out the neon sign and choose your payment and shipping options.
On the other hand, when you click the “Save and Finish Later” button, a bar would pop up, and this bar is where you will put your email address so that Yellowpop can send the link of your personal custom design to your email. There is also an option to share your custom design with friends or family members by clicking the “Share Your Neon Sign” button.
These are the things you need to know about Yellowpop and how to customize neon signs through the company’s website. Feel free to create your own neon sign designs on the Yellowpop website and purchase your creations so that you can elevate the looks of your bedroom, living room, or any other room in your home.
