Your Neon sign can be hung in a few different ways. Your sign will come with a hanging kit that includes screws and wall mates. This is for a standard, more permanent installation with the sign screwed into the wall.

If you are looking for a more temporary hanging solution, you can mount your Neon sign with 3M Command strips – Please check the hanging weight restrictions and instructions of command strips before hanging your sign. You may need to weigh your Sketch & Etch Neon sign first.

Alternatively, you can use a strong (strong!) fishing line, a chain or even cable ties for an event or wedding.


Sketch & Etch’s Neon signs are superlight weight and easy to install. If you can hang a picture frame, you can hang your custom Neon sign!

Most of our signs weigh between 2-7kgs. This is all due to the amount of acrylic used for the backing. Larger signs may weigh more than 7kgs. Always weigh your signs before installing so you can make sure you have the correct weight baring method to hang.


Is it okay to leave a Neon sign on?

Yes, it is fine to keep your Neon sign turned on for extended periods of time. Led lights are used for their efficiency and long-life span (Did you know our LEDs last 50,000+ hours!)

However, as a safety precaution, we do recommend turning the Neon signs off at the wall when no one is present or overnight.

What comes with my Neon Sign?

The majority of Sketch & Etch’s Neon signs come with a free remote & dimmer (excludes some shoppable designs) as well as a power pack and cleaning cloth.

Are they battery operated?

The majority of Sketch and Etch’s Neon signs and wall art, plug into a regular power socket on the wall, using a standard 12v transformer. Some of our small neon signs plug into a USB outlet however this isn’t available for all of our Neons signs.

We can suggest battery pack options, however this is not something we offer as standard as they do not last for long periods of time given the size of most of our signs.

From your Neon sign, comes an approx. 2m transparent cable that connects to plugs into your powerpack – In total you will have approximately 3-4m of cable to reach the power socket.
