Each letter comes with a standard UK plug (5 Amp) and a 2m long power cable.  Simply plug them in and away you go.

Where can I put the letter lights?

The choice is yours!  If possible we recommend that the lights are positioned close to a wall as this way they are less likely to get knocked over.

Most of our letter lights are for indoor use only.  We have however recently completed a set of outdoor LOVE and have more versions in the pipeline.

What happens if they get damaged?

We provide ourselves on our quality and service so each letter light is checked thoroughly before leaving our workshop.  Upon delivery someone will need to sign to say that the lights were delivered without fault or damage.  In the unlikely event that the letter lights are damaged and require repair we will ask for contribution towards the repair.   We understand that accidents do happen so small knocks and scrapes will not be billed for.
