Christmas Lights for Retail & Events

We work with some of the World’s most famous High Street brands and Visual Merchandising agencies to light up British High Streets at Christmas. Also ideal for Lighting up Christmas Events, our custom lighting will add wow-factor to any retail window or display. As we’re considered the ‘go-to’ experts in Christmas Visual Merchandising and Display lighting, your projects will be in safe hands.

How do I commission Christmas retail display lights?

01 – Brief us

Share your initial ideas with us, however simple or developed. We can discuss things such as how many lights are required for your Christmas project, what you’re trying to achieve with the Christmas campaign, whether the lights will be inside a Christmas retail display or in a Christmas window. All of these elements will help us propose ideas to create jaw-dropping wow-factor.

02 – The design

We’ll propose some design ideas that meet your brief. Using our expertise in event and retail display lighting, we’ll consider the appropriate brightness of lighting  according to its location (eg window or dressing room), whether visibility is required from 360 degrees for a window or 180 degrees for behind a till or on stage. We will also give an idea of cost at this stage.

03 – The options

We can now get into some of the finer details of your Christmas lighting project. Having narrowed down the design and the type of lighting (eg lightboxes, fairground lights or Neon Ultra®  [LED neon]) we’ll now focus on some of the detail such as exact dimensions , RGB colour settings and RAL colours for painting.

04 – Confirmation

Once you’re happy with the design and the price, then we’ll start production. We can liaise with other suppliers who are also working on your Christmas events and retail displays in order to keep them up to speed with our anticipated timings.

05 – Delivery

We’ll arrange a suitable time for delivery and can either deliver to a central location or deliver to a number of stores and outlets. We can wrap items loosely for easy install or we can package them up in custom crates to keep them protected. Both options are great value and we’re totally flexible and will do all of the legwork to make sure your Christmas retail display lights are delivered safe and sound.

06 – Installation

Most of our lights for Christmas retail visual merchandising and display projects are delivered for easy install. These include Christmas Lightboxes, Neon Lights for Christmas and Fairground Lights. It also includes neon for Christmas if we pre-mount it. If you would like the neon mounted directly to a wall such as a dressing room or behind a till then it would need specialist installation.


What are your lead times for Christmas retail display lighting?

We typically say 10-15 working days but it very much depends on the quantity and type of lighting. All of our lights are produced in the UK so we can often re-jig schedules to meet your timescales.

Can you design Christmas lights for our retail locations around the World?

Yes. Real neon is challenging to dispatch outside the UK but all of our other types of Christmas lights can be packaged for Worldwide transit. We’ve previously sent lights to The Maldives, Australia, Canada, Oslo….you name it.

Do you work with small brands as well as big high street brands?

Yes! We’ve work with small independent stores right through to the World’s most famous High Street brands.

When should we speak to you about our Christmas visual merchandising lighting requirements?

Brands and agencies normally start to approach us at the start of September with their initial ideas. We then spend a few weeks discussing budgets and designs and we then deliver lights any time from the end of September through to the beginning of December.

What are the best type of lights to get customer-attention this Christmas?

It totally depends on the location of the lights and the design of them. We can design Christmas lights using neon, Neon Ultra®, Lightboxes and Fairground Lights, so we have all the tools available to help your Christmas be a roaring success.

Are you Christmas lights also suitable for Events?

Yes. We produce a lot of lights for Christmas parties and events. Our lead times are the same as outline above so the sooner you speak to us the better.
