    I know I've posted this elsewhere, but we are a supplier of LED Christmas lights.

    We are based out of SW Michigan, so we are a good choice for folks in the Midwest and the northeast. We ship most orders received by 3pm the same day.

    We have a specific website for our wholesale customers that I won't post here, but feel free to shoot me a PM and I will pass it along.
    You do have to get your account approved before you purchase. Typically we just need proof you are a real Christmas light business (tax ID...etc) before we will approve your account.

    If you have any questions about us or our products, let me know.

    Good luck everyone!

    I usually use 50-70 light sets, green wire, 6 inch spacing ( or sometimes called 5.5 inch ) warm white that are converted to dc " rectified" or "full wave" so no flicker. send me a pm on how much those go for in case quantities, and what shipping would run per case to 72758 zip on a residential address. I am used to buying from other folks, so no hard feelings if it does not work out. :)

    could you post on here some photos of your lights on a few shrubs or trees? and/or maybe mention a few of the specs on the different light sets you carry? colors available? estimated years of life in sets?

    I am also curious how much work it is to get the lights out of the packaging and install the sets-do yours come in a bag, box, or both, twist tie, rubber band? spare fuse bag taped onto set or loose? do you have to kind of unravel them to get them to be straight, then ball them then un ball to install them?

    We only bring in 4inch spacing. But, our sets are full wave. I'll send you a PM with our site with pricing and strand info. If there is a lot of interested in 6 inch spacing, that is something we can look at for next year, but historically, there isn't enough interest.

    Here are a couple videos that show off our lights. (The website listed is our retail site)


    Lights come in a poly bag with no ties. So open bag, stretch out and install. In most cases you'll want to streath them out a little before you install. In a case, there is no other packaging other than strands in the bags.

    Life span on the lights depends on where you are and how long they are installed. Our sets are sealed socket, so there is no wear or corrosion on the sockets. But like any light strand, direct sun will eat the wire away, ice can be tough...etc. But we have a less than 1% fail rate on year one, then it jumps to a little over 2% on year two. Gets tough for us to track after that. With the invention of the LED light keeper, this will lower your long term fail rate, as there now an easy way to trouble shoot LED strands.

    Here are some pics of our lights in action

    This is multi color C9 LED retro fit on the roof. We used Pure White in stead of yellow to make it pop more. The light strands are 5mm multi color.

    Just about out of pure white 5mm 70 counts. (50 and 100's are getting down there as well) Still have a good supply of M5 pure white 70 counts.

    Warm white looks good as of today as well.

    If you are interested in our wholesale program shot me a PM and I can get you the information.

    For those interested, we have our pre order sale going on. For wholesale accounts it basically amounts to a 2% discount on orders paid in full (you can also do 50% down) and free shipping on orders over $1000.

    Let me know if you want more info.

    A couple new products will be coming this year.

    1. As requested by several folks here, we will be offering 5mm 50L with 6 inch spacing.
    2. We will have some ceramic type LED retro fit bulbs. We will have these in C9 and C7. These are less directional than the standard faceted bulbs.
