"Damn sister, that text is poppin!" said the client to the designer after she'd used the DesignerCandies 3D Neon Lettering Pack...
I've always marvelled at the beauty of bespoke neon signage. Whether heading up shops and storefronts or towering on top of buildings and over walkways, the fusion of functional text and artistic craftsmanship never ceases to amaze me.
It could be said that that quality signage is the epitome of good design.
As the quote goes: “Great design is invisible”. I wonder how often a person looks at 3D neon signage, something that functions perfectly and looks beautiful both day and night, and thinks to themselves “Wow, someone incredibly skilled made that”.
Food for thought. However I'm not here to philosophise, I'm here to give you guys candy. And this piece of candy is probably as sweet as they come.
Based on the Bebas Neue font by Dharma Type, we've created a set of 49 incredible 3D Neon Lettering renders.
Included in this 3D lettering pack:
- Letters A-Z
- Numbers 0-9
- Symbols: @ & ‘ # , $ = ! + – % . ?
Each character is rendered from one angle only. As much as I'd like for us to provide multiple angles for every character, doing so for a freebie of almost 50 included assets would be a major job. Maybe in the future.
Other 3D Lettering Packs You'll Enjoy:
- Disco Ball 3D Lettering Pack
- The Aviation Lettering Pack
- Christmas Cookie 3D Lettering Pack
- 3D Metal Lettering Pack
- 3D Foil Balloon Lettering Pack
As you can see from the previews below, the main feature image and (particularly) the animated GIF at the bottom of the page, you can have some real fun with these assets.
Use hue/saturation masks to change the colour of the neon strip and amplify the glare with some lighting effects and overlays. Overlap the letters and add in shadows to increase the realism then apply curve and level maps to the entire image when finished to blend everything together. Fun fun fun in the
sun sun sun candy shop.
There are 49 individual assets included in this download. Each letter and number is around 400px by 400px in dimension with the symbols a little smaller. Whilst not the largest of renders we've released on site, they're still large enough for you to get a lot of use out of. They're also rendered at 300dpi making them useful in print work too.
As with all our free candies, this download is Uncopyright so you can do whatever you want with it.

That Gif Image is pretty cool and creative =) Good Job Man.
Thanks @nandodeleon:disqus! Pretty easy to create if you’re familiar with Photoshop’s animation / timeline feature. Just added a black+white mask to the neon section of the text and turn it on and off over multiple frames 🙂
Love the share image at the end, lovely idea man!
I am so using these tonight … Thanks Adam!!
Another awesome job 🙂
Enjoy ’em @Eli_Isakov:disqus!
wow Amazing Job I Love it <3
Nicely Adam 🙂 I want to add some more efforts to your work.
Have fun with the renders @shaileshtr:disqus!
Hey, any chance you could ever do YouTube tutorials for how to make some of your content? I love using it but would love to see the process behind it. Thanks for your reply.
That’s a good idea @arcticmonkeyman:disqus! I’m sure putting together some tutorials on how to use the resources would be a possibility, but getting Lomell to go through the how-it-was-made process would be pretty advanced stuff.
Awesome. Even just the a few sceenshots with descriptions would benefit, just to see the process involved.
Thanks for the reply.
you helped me a lot with my 2 days assignment over this weekend. you re the best!
Great to hear the resources are useful, @pattiemao:disqus!
WoW! Thank you very much for saving my time, money and efforts! I’m gonna try the gif animation later today 😀 PS: Signed up for the newsletter
Great stuff @andrew_eugene:disqus! Making the GIF is much easier than expected 😉

The 3D Neon Lettering Pack “freebie” is not free although listed under free content! Asks for email address, which is never sent, and seems like it is for members only.
Check your spam & promotions folders. All emails are sent.
Please. I KNOW to do that. It’s not there. I just got the email to download 3D Text PSD for Photoshop, but NOT 3D Neon Lettering Pack. What next?
Look again. It has definitely been sent.
Don’t know why you don’t believe me when I tell you I KNOW how and WHERE to look. It has not arrived. The other one arrived quickly. If I got 1, then I should have gotten the other one.
Check you typed your email correctly then.
Of course it was put in correctly. It is put in every time using a browser extension which has been correctly doing so for years. I used the same method to get the other email to download an item.
Just checked and it works perfectly. Hundreds of people download this item everyday, the system works.
What email address did you use to download?
I KNOW the other one worked. This one did NOT send an email…3 times I tried! Why are we having such a big to-do about this. It’s like you think I am some stupid kid right off the farm! Not giving email here in an open forum, but it is same email that worked on other download request.
Just tried it again…twice! Still no email. Easier if you would just send me the download link. 😛
Thank you very much for sharing these.
I confirmed the email and could not download
Check your spam, that’s where they’ll be 🙂
Hi, this looks perfect for a job I’m working on. But I can’t get it to download. Says it is, but it doesn’t. Any ideas? Thanks
Hi Jane, I just checked and it appears to be downloading just fine. Can you try again for me please?
