Requesting custom colors...

Select colors from our printer's custom color palette here (palette should be viewed on a calibrated monitor). Merely click on the desired color and copy-paste the resulting code number. Or select from swatches here. Do note that some colors are less saturated than you are accustomed to viewing on simular color palettes. Nonetheless, this is an accurate rendering of print colors and an unavoidable result of our printing process. Once a color is selected and code number sent to our office a printed color sample will be sent.

Submitting digital artwork for custom printed shades...

We can generally print any design or image on our white linen and shade paper so long as the file is 150DPI and in RGB color. Keep in mind the dimensions of the shade and size your image accordingly. Note that we produce shades in "even" inch diameters starting at 6" and as large as 54". Shade height is available in any size between 3" and 40". Do include a 1" overlap in your image file.

Sending your own fabric for custom made shades...

Use the circumference calculater above to determine the amount of fabric needed. Add to the both the circumference and height at least 4" on both dimensions. If the fabric contains a pattern do keep in mind that it's unlikely that the seam will corespond. Also we are limited in the weights of fabric we can apply; best to call our office to discuss.

Our diffusers...

for our drum shades are now made with white linen laminated to styrene within a wire form. The diffuser readily slides out from the shade for easy access for bulb replacement. As well, our fabric diffuser distributes light more evenly than acrylic and also provides a complimentary continuity in material to the shade itself.

For our custom made rectangular shades we'll continue using acrylic diffusers due to manufacturing limitations.

Installing diffuser...

Insert diffuser at an angle from the bottom into the shade. Allow edge of diffuser to rest on the bottom lip of shade.
The diffuser will now be able to be lowered into a level position resting entirely on the shade's bottom lip.
To remove diffuser, raise one side of the diffuser thereby allowing the other side of the diffuser to be retracted from the bottom of the shade.
