When one thinks of a neon sign, what usually comes to mind is a splashy neon business sign used to attract attention. One often forgets that neon is an art form and a dying one at that. The Museum of Neon Art (MONA) is here to remind us of the spectular effects that can and have been achieved with neon glass art. MONA presents a bit of everything from classic restored neon signs to new age light shows. The museum is relocating to Glendale CA and a new building, where it will be the corner stone of the new Cultural Arts District. The museum is dedicated to keeping the art of neon alive and offers neon classes and well as neon tours in the LA area. You Glow MONA!

In America, St. Patrick's day is celebrated with parades, shamrocks and all things Irish. From leprechauns to the color green and cabbage to the Blarney stone, you don't have to be Irish to celebrate this holiday. Slip on some green apparel and decorate your table with some green food and drinks. Hang green and orange balloons from the ceiling. Set out a four leaf clover neon sign to add some luck of the Irish. Play Irish Songs or put in a DVD of Riverdance. Decorate with posters and banners featuring pictures of Ireland. Soon you will have a new tradition to celebrate each year.

Before purchasing an LED sign, check with you local building department to make sure you will not break any city ordinance or zoning policies in your preferred location. Also consider your LED sign requirements and compare them to sign regulations set by your local government. Many communities set restrictions on the size and appearance of signs.You can find out how property is zoned by contacting your local building department, or use the state and local search engine to find if your city or county has zoning ordinances online. If you need any assistance, LED Sign Authority can help you select the right sign for your location. Here are a few questions you may want to ask your local building department:
- How many square feet of signage is allowed?
- Is there a minimum or maximum height restriction? What is it?
- Are there set back requirements? Minimum distance from the roadway or sidewalk?
- Are you allowed an LED Moving Message Sign? Can it move and scroll, or must it stay static?
- Can anyone pull a permit or is a license necessary?
- Can your organization install the sign themselves or is a Sign Specialist required?
