Frequently Asked Questions

Do they run on batteries?

Every Light Frame is battery powered. The battery pack is flat on the back allowing the frame to be wall hung. Depending on your choice of lighting they will be either 2 lithium button batteries or AA batteries. Plug in lighting is also an option, choose this on the product page.

How do they light up?

Every frame is lit by micro LEDs. These are safe and subtle that produce no heat. The lighting is placed in by hand to compliment the silhouette art in the frame. There is a switch on the back of the frame. An option for remote controlled colour changing or standard white lighting is available. You can choose from these lighting options on the product page.

Can the batteries be replaced?

Yes. The lithium battery size is CR2032 and available from my online shop. The larger frames use AA batteries available at any supermarket.

How long do the batteries last?

Depending on their use, the lithium batteries last up to 30 hours. The AA batteries can last up to 60 hours.

How long does the artwork take?

Every silhouette is cut by hand. Depending on the detail in the picture the cutting time can be from an hour to over 40 hours.

Can the frames be hung on a wall?

Yes. All frames have mounting hooks on the back. Each frame has a depth of 2 inches and can also be stood up.

Do you do commissions?

Yes. Please contact me for a quote. All I need is a copy of the picture you would like turned into a silhouette and lit up. There are 6 different frame sizes to choose from and multiple lighting options.

After I place my order how long will it take until I receive my order?

The standard process time is 5 days. At busy seasonal times of the year extra stock is made. Contact me if you have any questions.

Do the Light Frames work outside?

The Light Frames are built to work inside only. If you would a frame that is waterproof and works outside, please contact me to discuss the different options for this.
