Interesting Trivia Regarding Neon Signs In Huntington Beach

Over a game of trivia one day with some friends, it will be interesting to ask questions about the discovery of neon lighting. Some would think that it only recently began in the last few decades, while others would have you believe that perhaps 80 years is when the neon lighting capability was discovered. The truth is, it was actually discovered back in the late 1600’s by Jean Picard. No, not the captain of a Star Trek series, but the one and only Mr. Picard that is better known for his accurate measurement of the longitude line. With that being said, it is a wonder how Neon Signs Huntington Beach are still so popular today and how far they have come.

Without getting too much into the technical aspect of the neon sign, let’s just sum it all up. By the mid 1800’s a discovery was made using electrical generators that helped make certain gases glow. By the early 1900’s, that glow was coming together in the form of a lamp after several decades of varying experiments. The first neon lamp made its public debut in 1910.

So how did we get from the first neon lamp in 1910 to the huge Neon Signs that you can see everywhere from bars to high school football games? A car dealership company first started using the “liquid fire” signs to advertise their business and the rest is, as they say, history. The Neon Signs Huntington Beach that catch a consumer’s attention even in the light of day have been a wonderful advertising feature for many businesses.

You would think that the hardest part would be the invention or start of Sunset Signs and Printing Inc., but the most complicated part can actually be the delivery of such a delicate item. The hollow tube of soft glass is hand scored, or partially cut, to achieve the exact mold that the artisan is trying to design. The extremely fragile item also has a small charge of mercury that can be released when broken. Where that mercury is released could mean a greater contamination concern. Always unpack with extreme caution and possibly away from possible risky contamination areas.
