What is UL Listed and why is it important? 

UL is the most respected name in product safety in the United States. Using UL's strict traceability guidelines, all components of a completed product meet or exceed UL's quality and safety standards. When a lighting fixture is UL Listed, it means the final product has been tested and certified to UL standards. It then gets a UL label on the backside of the canopy indicating it has passed. To see if an Illuminate Vintage fixture is UL Listed, look in the title or description of the listing. Note that fixtures with movable joints will not be UL Listed, but will be constructed with UL Listed electrical components.

When will my order ship?

Our fixtures are handmade to order and have a build time of 1 week in addition to 3-4 days for shipping within the US, or 10-15 business days for international shipping. We do not keep stock of our fixtures at this time.

Do you offer expedited build times? 

Yes, pricing depends on your order subtotal but starts at just $50. This option puts you to the front of the build queue and typically reduces build times from the standard one week down to just 1-2 business days if parts are in stock.
