Creating a custom lamp shade – from the ordering process to the UPS person picking it up and delivering it to the customer’s door, Arie Lighting takes care of the service, the quality and the design to ensure that your custom made lamps reflect your choice and your status. At Arie, we like to emphasize to our customers that they’re not just buying a lamp, they are getting a decorative custom made lighting fixture that is a piece of functional art.
The first step in designing custom made lamps, is talking with our clients to find out exactly what they need to light their room, while at the same time making sure that they get the right colors and size to complement their space. Often we send out a sample to make sure a particular choice works in a room. Our Graphics department has perfected the specific printing process on these lamp shades, for floor lamps, table lamps, and ceiling lighting. After the image for our client is printed, it is then taken to production where the print is trimmed and formed. After the lamp shade is formed, it is then seamed and brought to the wiring specialist where it is wired and tested for any defects. We then bring it to the shipping department where it is carefully packed to ensure that our clients get our product in the same condition it was when it left our studio.
The entire process looks fast and easy, but much time and care go into each one of the custom made lamps; it is much more difficult than meets the eye. From the designing process to the custom craftsman assembly to the shipping of each lamp, it is an expensive and timely process.
