In Response To: Re: Neon / LED (SVP Neon Equipment)


Again, I agree with you Mark.I use and like EGL products.However there has been no EGL rep in my area [Western Canada...that I know of] since about 2000.This is very important because these are the guys selling the new products to the large sign companies.I am a neon wholesaler....all decisions on wether to use neon or LED are made before patterns arrive at my shop.I can talk to these sign shops till im blue in the face about the advantages of using neon....but they think [and know] that im just a tubebender trying to protect my livelyhood.These middle/upper management people making the decisions need to be SOLD by industry sales reps.

Im not on the EGL witchhunt.[allthough they set industry standards]ALL of the heavies in the neon biz need/needed to be displaying/selling the new stuff,out in the field.Thats what LED sales reps are doing as we speak.I honestly think it may be too late to recover from the LED onslaught,unless in the long run the LEDs prove to be a way inferior product.
