If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you’ve probably heard at least one story about electronic cigarettes (or e-cigs, hookah pens, and e-vapes as they’re sometimes called). Since we first posted about E-Cigarette Neon Signs last year, the number of vaping companies and retailers that sell e-cigs has practically exploded. An article in the Bloomberg Business Week on February 6, 2014 predicted that e-cigarette sales could surpass that of traditional tobacco cigarettes by 2023.
According to an October 2013 article in the same publication, there are over 3,500 vape shops in the U.S., and most are independent ventures put together by owners of traditional tobacco stores. If you’re reading this post, there’s a good chance that you’re the owner or manager of one of these stores, and if you’re looking to get more business by doing some affordable and cost-effective advertising, nothing does the trick quite like E-Cigarette, E-Juice, and Vapor Neon Signs like the ones you see below.
If you’re the proprietor of a convenience store that sells vaping equipment and not a store solely dedicated to e-cigs and vaporizers, you’re going to want to make e-cigarette smokers aware of that, and a simple and easy way to do that is to hang one of these signs in your window!

In 2012, video gambling became legal in the state of Illinois, and according to an article in the Chicago Tribune, businesses that have video gaming machines on their premises earned $1.3 Million in revenue in the month of December 2013 alone. Video gaming machines, such as video poker and video slots, are a major cash cow in Illinois and several other states where they’re legal. If you’re the owner of one of these businesses, you’re of course going to want to advertise that people can come in and spend some money and try their luck! Video Poker Neon Signs and Video Slots Neon Signs are the perfect advertising tools that pay for themselves in a matter of weeks!
In Illinois, bars, clubs, truck stops and liquor-serving restaurants are allowed to have up to 5 video gaming machines. If you have these inside of your business, it’s in your best interest to advertise that fact! One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to grab the attention of people walking or driving by your storefront to let them know that they can come in and play your video gaming machines are with video gaming neon signs.
Weather you are trying to wrangle in serious gamblers or casual passersby that want to try their luck with the extra cash they have in their wallet, nothing does the trick quite like a bright and glowing neon sign that can be seen from hundreds of yards away.

According to a report in Business Insider Magazine, sales of electronic cigarettes are expected to reach $1.7 billion by the end of 2013. Has your retail location taken advantage of this increasingly popular trend yet? E-Cigs are being sold in stores around the globe, and because they produce a vapor instead of tobacco smoke they are even allowed in some locations where traditional cigarettes are banned. Because of their popularity, retail stores are seeing their profit margins soar by hanging e-cigarettes neon signs in their windows!
E-cigs, also known as e-hookahs, hookah pens, disposable hookahs, and portable vaporizers, produce an aerosol vapor instead of smoke, and because there is no combustion of tobacco it is considered a safer alternative to cigarette smoking. Their visibility is becoming ever greater with television advertisements and celebrity endorsements, and it appears this trend isn’t going away any time soon.
Many retailers are relying on custom neon signs that advertise their selection of e-cigarette supplies to get the desired customers into their store. Convenience stores, smoke shops, head shops, and small grocery stores can see a larger turnout of customers, both the regular consumer and the curious type, with neon signs like these examples that can be seen from far distances.
Sings like the one above that display “E-Cigarettes Only” are great for business in cities where there is a smoking ban, but vaporized e-cigs are allowed. Some electronic cigarettes are rechargeable and have a reservoir that holds a vaporizer liquid , called E-Juice or E-Liquid, which is another popular accessory that people buy a lot of. There are even some establishments that cater to the vapor crowd by offering a lounge-type area where patrons can puff away on their herbal vaporizers. Don’t be left in the dust, let Neon and More create a neon sign for your storefront so you can grab a piece of that billion dollar pie!

Stop me if you’ve heard this joke: A horse walks into a bar. He leaves because the place is boring and dank, and would rather spend his hard earned horse money somewhere where he feels warm and welcomed.
This is a terribly unfunny joke that doesn’t even make sense, but it makes for a nice segue into the topic of this blog, and that’s neon bar signs, and how they are pretty much necessary for a bar or pub’s success.
When people go to a place to sit back with friends and enjoy an ice cold brewski, they want to do it in a nice place with a bright ambiance with things you would normally associate with a bar: A counter top with stools to order from, tables and/or booths, and neon beer signs. Why the neon signs? For one, it’s pretty much expected. Some beer companies actually require neon signs of their brand to be on the walls, but that’s not in all cases.
They’re there for several reasons: The main one being, of course, that it’s an advertising tool. You’re there, you’re thirsty, and what should you order? You notice the bright green Heineken neon sign above the bar and say, “yeah, I think I’ll have a Heineken.”
What some pubs and bars do is to have custom neon bar signs made to shine brightly either outdoors near the entrance, in the window, or even on an interior wall. They’re remarkably effective at getting the name of the bar to stick in people’s mind, so the next time one of their buddies asks, “where do you want to go to grab some drinks?” what the bar owner hopes will happen is that they’ll remember the bar because their awesome neon made a lasting impression and thus made it easy to recall. Cheers!
Getting your small business name out in the world is hugely important for your bottom line. There are many ways to advertise, from print ads to posters to skywriting. However, many of those methods are expensive and don’t remain in the viewer’s mind. Believe it or not, one of the best and most cost-effective ways to advertise your business is with a neon sign!
There are several ways a neon sign will get your business noticed. First, if your sign is outdoors it can be seen from far away distances, in any weather condition. If it’s big and bright and colorful, people will remember it and there’s a better chance they’ll use your services. You may be thinking to yourself, aren’t neon signs expensive and take up a lot of electricity? There answer to both those questions is no! Neon signs are actually the cheapest form of advertising because they can be left on 24/7 and use no more electricity than a standard light bulb!
Secondly, you can advertise specific items in your store that you want to promote, such as products that have a high margin. If you’re a bar or restaurant, neon signs of beer brands catch the eye of undecided buyers. Simple neon signs like “Billiards” or “Popcorn” will subliminally attract people and you’ll see more sales of items you have hanging on your wall in bright lights.
When you have a custom neon sign with your business name radiating vibrantly, it can attract people’s eye from faraway places like no other form of outdoor advertising, much more so than a sign made of wood or plastic. Neon signs can be made in any size, design, font, or color, and make a lasting impression of your business when seen by all.
