Inside: Neon Creations

The company Neon Creations was established in 2005 and specialises in the design and manufacture of custom made neon signs and lights. They produce mainly one-off custom designs for a client base which ranges from retail, leisure, music, design/ad agencies, events and domestic clients. Well-known clients include singer Lucy Spraggan, dirty food pioneers Solita and Misguided.

With over 25 years’ experience in the neon sign making industry, Tony Spink, owner of Bolton based neon sign studio Neon Creations, specialises in the design and manufacture of custom made neon signs, neon lights and neon art. Catherine who is Tony’s partner in Neon Creations, says:

“Our passion for all things neon stems from our genuine love of creating unique and bespoke neon products, as we believe that our personalised and attentive approach enables us to deliver a truly spectacular service that sets us apart from our competitors. What’s more, all of our design and manufacture is undertaken in-house, and we work closely with our customers to ensure that your ideas won’t ever be lost in translation.

Our neon products are supplied for a wide range of personal, commercial and industrial uses including branding, events, entertainment, gifts, art and domestic use.”

Lucy Sparagann’s project, for instance, included a neon sign for part of the on tour stage set, and also a neon light for use within a domestic setting.

Lucy says: “I travelled up to Bolton after finding Neon Creations online. I decided I wanted to get a bespoke neon logo created by Tony to take on the road, so I shot over an email and he got started. Tony and Catherine made the planning very easy from start to finish, with detailed diagrams and optional colours for the final piece.”



Tony Spink learnt his skills with a large sign company where he started as a trainee in 1989. He fell in love with the product and realised there was so much more that could be done with it, then once again he fell in love, this time with his now wife Catherine, and moved up to Manchester in 2001. Besides working for clients, Tony Spink also created 20 bespoke pieces that were exhibited, alongside acrylic and resin based art by Stephen Farley, in Manchester’s Artzu Gallery.


Catherine, Tony’s partner, adds: “We set up the business as Tony was frustrated with the companies he worked for as he wasn’t getting the chance to be as creative as he would like. He was fed up making repetitive work so I told him to stop moaning about it, and let’s do something about it, so we did!”
