Factors to consider when choosing a supplier

For the best quality lighting and finish to your project, there are a number of factors you should consider when choosing an LED fairground lighting supplier:

How long they have been in business

While newer businesses should not be completely discredited (some of the best ones haven’t even fully emerged yet), suppliers who have been in business for a long time have already built a good reputation. This reputation is demonstrative of a good reputation and specialist knowledge, which likely shows a loyal base of customers who are satisfied with their products.

The WeLoveLEDs business originated from a signage background and our team have used all of the products we stock to create our signs which means we have full knowledge and experience of how they work.

Similar projects they have undertaken

Another factor that should help you to determine whether a supplier is right for you is if they’ve helped customers undergo similar projects to yours in the past. This should be both in terms of scale and actual product. It doesn’t make sense to choose a supplier that only deals with smaller scale lighting products if you’re designing a huge set of LED Mr and Mrs letters for a wedding!

Fairground lighting is an art form within a specific niche so it pays to work with suppliers who understand the product implicitly.

At WeLoveLEDs, we have provided supplies for fairground lighting projects of all shapes and sizes, proving we’re more than capable of assisting with larger orders. If you’re unsure whether we’ve supplied lighting for the project you have in mind before, just get in touch!

Local or national

Depending on your time constraints, it might be better to opt for a local supplier if you have a short time frame or need hands on support. However, local options may not specialise in fairground lighting specifically, so this is something else to consider.

If you’re looking at a bigger project and need specialist support, then a national supplier may be best for you. In our case we can help you build your order technically and then ensure your lights are shipped in a timely and safe manner at even the tightest of deadlines.

For projects with a tight deadline, always check the delivery times before you order. WeLoveLEDs offers a next day delivery service so, whether you’re local or not, you will receive your products quickly.

The benefits of LED fairground lighting

LED fairground lights are a great option for both indoor and outdoor events and come with a huge array of benefits, including:

Lifespan

The lifespan of normal bulbs can be shortened by both improper and proper usage, whereas the way LED bulbs generate light gives them a significantly longer lifespan. Their energy efficiency, durability and low heat levels allow them to outlast other bulb varieties by hundreds of hours.

Energy efficiency

LED bulbs have an extremely high lumen output per watt, which makes them an energy efficient lighting option. Other bulb varieties waste a huge amount of their lighting energy by converting it into heat but LED bulbs are designed to dissipate heat via their heat sink so that it can be safely dispersed away. Incandescent bulbs can sometime be so hot that they are unsafe to use, especially for events where there are children present who might burn themselves or near flammable materials that could set alight.

Variety

In order to create different shades of light or colours, incandescent bulbs require special filters or gels. On the other hand, LED fairground lights are supplied in either warm white or pure white colour temperatures but different coloured caps and bases can be used to provide your project with more variety.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor use

LED fairground lights can be safely operated in cold temperatures and can withstand more vibration and impact than other types of light bulbs because they are not made with fragile parts or filaments. This durability makes them particularly suited to environments that fluctuate in temperature, as well as harsh weather conditions.

Why should you choose WeLoveLEDs?

High Quality Products

We offer a fantastic range of high-quality, cost-effective LED fairground lights, from Cabochon lights to Golf ball lights in various colours and designs. We only supply high quality products.

Low quality Cabochon bulbs will not have the same lifespan or perform as well as the E10’s ad E14’s we supply which can affect the overall finish and performance of your project. Whilst they may offer cost savings initially, they will not provide the same results.

Next Day Delivery

If you need a reliable lighting solution for a last-minute project or event, we can offer a speedy next-day delivery service for UK addresses so that you can make sure your project is finished on time and to a high-quality standard.

Our next day delivery service is available for MOST UK addresses so if you have a deadline to meet, please chat with our team first to make sure we can deliver to your address the next day. Delivery times for addresses offshore and in the Highlands are usually two to three days.
