3x5 Cardinal Shade
This is the 3" top 5" bottom by 4.5" side version of our Cardinal shade.
PLEASE : watch video to see how shades with no metal rings work.
We use a heavyweight recycled paper and metal rings to produce our shades. We do NOT use any Plastics or chemical adhesives . THINK GREEN ! You can see in the pictures that the shades have small cuts made into them to add highlights and to give some depth to the artwork. . The top ring is a candelabra clip top which just clips onto a 3" flame tip shaped bulb.
If you have watched the video you will see that I have added a new way to purchase this size shade . The original way , with a liner and rings will always be available . The second way that incorporates a white frame that acts as the rings and liner. This allows you to get multiple designs cheaper.
My pros and cons of each:
WITH: metal rings
Pros: more light gets through, can be displayed separately from others,
Cons: Cost per shade is more, no access to cut work
WITHOUT: metal rings:
Pros: cost per design is cheaper, access to the inside of shade( gently reshape the cut work)
Cons: less light gets through( the frame is denser than the liner)
These shades are 3"x5"s with 4.5" side. If you have shades ( frames) in this size you can use them with these. Must be white to work .
If you have any questions please don' t hesitate to ask.
