We carry bulbs and string lights of many shapes and sizes! From Christmas to Diwali, Weddings to Backyard Decor, they have many purposes. However, all of the different numbers used across the industry can be confusing as a consumer. We're to help you decode all of those numbers and help you decide which size of lights are right for your project!

The "Strawberry-Shaped" Bulbs

The C9 Bulb is the standard Christmas light bulb, though it has been repurposed time and time again for different occasions and events. Featuring a faceted outer lens, they produce a soft, diffused glow.

Most appropriate for: Using on rooflines and in large tree canopies

Pair with: E17 Socket Wire, sometimes referred to as "Intermediate base"

LED Technology: SMD Chip

The C7 Bulb is the smaller sibling of the C9 standard Christmas light bulb. Small but mighty, these are an economic alternative to the C9 while still providing lots of light for your display.

Most appropriate for: Using on rooflines, lining windows and doors, and in large tree canopies.

Pair with: E12 Socket Wire, sometimes referred to as "Candelabra base"

LED Technology: SMD Chip

The Super-Bright "Globe" Lights

The G30 Bulbs are a modern take on the traditional Christmas bulb. The magnifying cone inside of the bulb creates a beautiful and captivating sparkle, and the warm white option is a great, low-energy alternative to incandescents. These globe shaped bulbs (hence the "G") are prefect for any holiday or event.

Most appropriate for: Using on rooflines and in large tree canopies

Pair with: E17 Socket Wire, sometimes referred to as "Candelabra base"

Just as the C7 Bulb is the smaller sibling of the C9 standard Christmas light bulb, the G20 Bulb is the smaller sibling of the G30. These are the cutest little bulbs you've ever seen, and their SMD chip projects lots of light and colour for your display.

Most appropriate for: Using on rooflines, lining windows and doors, and in large tree canopies. Also perfect for making totally bespoke custom designs like marquee signs.

The 5mm string light has slowly taken over the C6 in popularity. Often referred to as mini-lights in the industry, their bulbs' conical lens creates a captivating sparkle that's perfect for the holidays, adding subtle decoration to your home, or lighting up your event! Featuring co-axial connections, these string light sets come in a large variety of bulb spacing, wire colour, and bulb colour combinations.

Most appropriate for: Decorating shrubs and small to medium sized tree canopies. The brown wire 5mm mini-lights are perfect for intricate trunk and branch wrapping.
