About

The Neon Gallery specializes in custom design, fabrication and restoration of neon signs and sculptures. With over 33 years of experience and a genuine interest in creating unique and high quality neon products, our personal approach sets us apart. We work closely with each client to bring their ideas to light, no matter how simple or complex. Our love of neon is reflected in our work. Whether it is a special gift, your business logo, a design for your home or event, your neon will be truly unique.

Tim Walker is a self-taught neon artist. Lights, technology, design and electricity fascinated him as a child. He first took his designs to neon factories, where glassblowers manufactured the neon for him. During this time, Walker learned all he could by observing and reading. Soon, he purchased some used neon manufacturing equipment from a friend and taught himself how to blow glass and fabricate neon. On his 21st birthday in 1983, he opened The Neon Gallery. Suzette started working with Tim in 1985, bringing her own artistic point of view to the table. They married in 1986 and have been collaborating and innovating together ever since.

How It Works

Have something specific in mind?
Send us your files, sketches or handwriting and we’ll take it from there.

Not exactly sure what you want?
No problem! Check out past projects in our photo gallery, give us a call or visit the studio to brainstorm with us.

What information do we need?
To determine the most appropriate design and materials, we will need to know:

  • Where will it go?
  • What size do you want it to be?
  • What style are you looking for? (Americana, vintage, modern, art deco, etc.)
  • What color(s) do you want to use?
  • What is your budget?

How do I know what it will look like?
We’ll present some draft images of suggested designs based on our initial conversation to bring your light to life.We can place the design on top of a photo of your space, giving you a better idea of how the finished product will look.

How long does it take?
Production can take 5 to 20 days depending on the specification of your sign and the current gallery workload. Rush service is available at an additional cost.

How is it installed?
Most of our custom neon signs are supplied ready to hang either directly on the wall or by chain. They simply plug into standard 120vac outlet. If your design requires a special installation, we can help!

How much does it cost?
As our custom made neon signs are individually manufactured to your size and specifications, we do not have a standard price list. Pricing depending on size, color, materials used and design. We quote each job individually. For custom pieces, a 50% deposit is required when the order is placed.
