Cat Chan On April 13, 2020

I have a confession to make. I was one of those kids who loved Pokémon. Back in the 90s when it wasn’t cool. And it wasn’t connected to Ryan Reynolds or blockbuster movies. In fact, I may or may not have known all the words to the Pokémon theme song.


So, when Brooke from Something White Events got in contact with us about making a Neon Sign for a Pokémon themed wedding, my inner child squealed with delight.


We’ll be there in a hurry!

We love the fact that we have both an on-site and off-site Neon production team! Not only does this allow us to send our Neon Signs all over world, but it also means that we have the capability to come to the rescue when one of our Clients needs a Neon Sign – urgently.


Brooke had been planning the ultimate 6-year-old kid’s party for one of her clients – a little boy who LOVED Pokémon. She had thought of everything! We’re talking little Pokéball gift bags, Pikachu place mats. They also had adorable and mouth-watering cookies which almost looked too good to eat!  And what makes this even more impressive was how much Brook knew about Pokémon. “When I was first asked a few weeks ago to do a Pokémon themed party, I was a little perplexed as I wasn’t really aware who or what Pokémon was.”…seems like not everyone was as cool as me as a kid.

The finishing touch

With the details almost finalized, Brooke realized they were missing the final piece. An extra wow-factor piece that would tie together the event and light things up! A neon sign was the key.

Brooke came to us just in time. We were able to rush through a job for her, designing, making, and sending a neon sign out within a week!


After a few designs we were able to create the perfect custom party piece! Our design team included a black print to the design and font of the existing stationery. This created a 3D effect which perfectly matched everything else on the day and brought the sign to life.


We love how creative we were able to get with this custom name Neon Sign, and how it will be a piece of bedroom wall-art for Aiden’s bedroom for years to come.
