Neon lighting has been a phenomenon since the early 1900’s when the French Engineer Georges Claude first unveiled his invention at the Paris Motor Show in 1910. From then on it has become widespread across the world as a form of signage synonymous with vintage culture. Since then, the adoption of LED lighting has become popular due to the benefits of reduced energy consumption and easier manufacturing when compared to traditional neon tubing.


Traditional neon tube lighting requires a high skill of glass manufacturing as well a knowledge of Neon gas or similar. This is of course where the name comes from as well as the glowing colours that it produces. These processes require a longer amount of time and greater effort compared to LED lighting. LED NEON FLEX is a slim and flexible alternative to neon tube lighting. Neon Flex has a slim and flexible PCB system allowing it to be formed into a range of different shapes to a maximum bendable angle of 150 degrees. It also requires no heating process when being used for signage like traditional tubing would.

Cost Saving

While requiring less effort to make and use, LED NEON FLEX can also save end users money too. According to, the difference could be between 10-15 kilowatt hours of electricity saved per year, when going with the LED neon alternative over traditional neon tubing. In Ireland, that is roughly a saving of €300 per year by switching to LED (Price Compared 02/21).

Pharmacy Crosses


Pharmacy Crosses, we all know what they are and they are a familiar site across the world symbolising that a shop is designated as a Pharmacy but where does this symbol originate from?


The earliest use of symbols in pharmacies or earlier apothecaries was that of Asclepius’ staff, Asclepius being the Greek God of Medicine. His staff was iconic for the two snakes that were seen wrapped around it and has become a common symbol used even in modern medicine. In the UK the symbol is still used by the NHS and hospitals.

First Green Pharmacy Crosses

According to (2017), it is only in the late 20th century that the use of green crosses became popular and widespread across continental Europe, replacing the previous red crosses that were adopted by ‘The Red Cross’ in 1863. It wasn’t until the late 1980’s that the use of green Pharmacy Crosses came to the UK as a standard symbol for Pharmacies as stipulated by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.

LED Pharmacy Crosses

Nowadays the use of illuminated Pharmacy Crosses has become the norm as businesses compete for consumer attention on a daily basis. Before the introduction of LEDs, illumination was done by halogen bulbs which at the time may have been effective but required plenty of power to run and provided non uniform lighting.

Further Information

For any Pharmacies looking to stand out and catch consumer attention while not breaking the bank at the same time, LED Pharmacy Crosses are the only option. Take our ECO Cross Range for example, a simple LED solution providing an eye catching high brightness, matched with great build quality and packed full of animations and custom text options to personalise the cross to your business. These signs use much less power than previous signage and are even effective during day time hours.
