Big Star Lights Studio

Our team is able to take your project from a design idea and turn them into a reality, providing support every step of the way.

We can build almost anything; custom fixtures, light combinations, ornaments, large scale sculptures, and more!

How it works

We have a simple 4-step process that our experienced Big Star Lights Studio team is ready to walk you through so you can get exactly what you're looking for.

Step 1


We can build almost anything at our aluminum fabrication facility.

Simply describe or show us a photo of an inspirational shape or figure and we'll begin the design phase.

From simple ornaments to elaborate animals or characters, we'll find a way to turn your idea into an awe-inspiring centre-piece for any Christmas light display. It's going to be the talk of the town!

Step 2


Our designers will take your idea and turn it into a 3D design.

We'll then work together to determine the best colours, light options (twinkle, non-twinkle) and decide on embellishments like beads for extra bling.

At this point, a 50% deposit will be required (due no later than July 1) with a final payment to be made just prior to shipping.

Step 3


Our engineers will wire-frame design the 3D drawing, which determines exactly how the lights will sit in order to accentuate the motif.

We will also determine how to structurally build it so that it is strong yet portable and can be safely transported and efficiently stored between seasons.

Step 4


This is where the magic happens!

Our fabrication facility will construct the design, apply commercial grade low-voltage lights, add any desired embellishments, test it, and prepare it for being shipped directly to your door.

Detailed instructions will be included so that you can easily assemble it each year.


Our lighted motifs are made to order, so costs vary significantly depending on complexity and quantity.

As an estimate for 3D figures such as animals, shapes, or characters between 10 and 20 feet, the cost is typically $10,000 - $20,000 USD (or approx. $1000 per foot).

Ground shipping from our warehouse in Vancouver, Canada is extra.

  • Lighted polemounts vary from $500 - $1000 USD per unit for most designs (including brackets).
  • Marquee letters vary from $100 - $1000 USD per character depending on shape and size.
  • In most cases, quotes can be provided within a few days of determining final design.
  • A 50% deposit is required upon order confirmation (latest July 1st) with the final payment due prior to delivery, which is expected in September or early October.
