Good Vibes Neon Lights

Ever wondered what ambience your store carries? According to The Journal of International Research and Marketing, there was a 1997 study done on Store Atmosphere, Mood and Purchasing Behavior which concluded that:

"Customers' mood—measured at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of their shopping—was shown to improve in the pleasant and to deteriorate in the less pleasant store. Satisfaction with the store was greater in the pleasant store ... Customers in the pleasant store spontaneously spent more money on articles they simply liked.”

Are you aiming to keep people in high spirits when they’re in and around your store? A fun neon sign is a bright way to start! Luckily, our neon lights have flex technology. This means you can create different designs with your quote―twirl it, bend it, add funky emojis and more.
