Not many people study Christmas lights. Most people pull the lights out of the closet or attic sometime around Thanksgiving, hang them on the Christmas tree, or drape them over some bushes, and then take them down after New Years. If you are thinking about replacing those old incandescent lights this year with energy-efficient LED string lights you may be surprised at all the options available. There are differences between the options, and it is good to know a little about the choices available before you go shopping.
You’ve just arrived and are figuring out how to decorate an 8 x 5 foot space with cinderblock walls so it doesn’t look dull. There are many dorm room decorating products in stores, and numerous ideas on the internet. Here are a few of our favorites because they won’t break the bank and they won’t break school rules (usually). Each has great potential for creativity and fun.

Outdoor Patio Lights and Party Themes Make the Night Special
Your patio is the extension of your living room. And summer, with extended hours of daylight, is the perfect time to extend your parties out onto the patio, deck, and into the yard—and with the right lighting, the party can extend well into the night!
Outdoor patio lights and special party themes will make your outdoor summer parties memorable. We also recently looked into Architectural Fibreglass Mouldings, as we want to create a new patio outside, that will hopefully be stylish and built-to-last.

Purple LED Christmas Lights have become very popular in the last several years. We receive several inquiries each and every month wanting to know which Purple LED Christmas light bulb is the “truest” purple. There has been much discussion, between employees and customers over this very question, and a conclusion is still being debated over. This is because everyone’s definition of what a “true purple” is, is different.
The energy savings, costs savings, and safety of LED Christmas lights are wonderful, but one of the coolest things about Christmas LED lights, is that they can do so much more than traditional incandescent Christmas lights. One of my favorite new products is the morphing LED light set. This light set consist of 5MM wide angle LEDs that are mostly warm white bulbs – but here’s what makes them so cool – Every 5th bulb morphs! The morphing bulbs will slowly fade between colors – Green, Blue, Aqua/Teal, Yellow , Purple, White, and Red – and variations/tones of these colors, while the other bulbs stay Warm White.
This year LED Christmas lights will be given more shelf-space in the big box stores. Incandescent will still be available, but shoppers will have more options than in years past. As with most things, there are substantial differences in quality between the various brands and types of LED Christmas lights on the market.
There are a variety of different styles of Christmas lights. One of the most common speciality styles of Christmas lights is the icicle light. The icicle light is a great decorating tool, and can be utilized to provide fantastic affects, to a number of different holiday displays.
We talk to a lot of customers who are interested in animating their Christmas lighting display, or who want to incorporate color changing technology, but don’t really know where to start. We recently starting selling the new RGB Line, and wanted to offer a little more information about it and how it works, so we sat down with our Technical Expert to get some of the basic or more common questions answered.
