About

Hi Kickstarter.  We are excited to introduce Lit Lamp! Over the last decade, significant advancement in LED technology has paved the way for us to create a truly magical lamp; a lamp where a clear glass frame radiates bright light with the touch of a marker. 

How does it work?   Extra bright LED strips shine light though the edges of the glass. The light particles bounce within the clear glass unable to escape. The marker disrupts the smooth surface, and the light particles flow through the mark.

The markers are readily available for purchase.  

The white tote marker is make by Uchida

Color set is by Kassa.

Draw: You can draw anything and turn it into a lamp

Erase: The marker wipes of easily with paper towel and any glass cleaning solution  

Trace: It's designed to make tracing easy.  You can fit any 8.5" x 11" paper and make your drawing glow.   

Lit Lamp offers as many uses as you can imagine  

  • Light your room with your favorite quote  
  • Trace a work of art and turn it into a lamp  
  • Turn your kids drawing into their night light  
  • Use it for your holiday decorations; draw a Christmas tree or a Menorah  
  • Trace your favorite sports team's logo  
  • Hang your picture and make it glow 
  • Write a message or holiday greetings for your office  
  • Draw attention to your specials menu  

Key features  

  • Our LED strips have an expected life span of 30,000 - 50,000 hours; that's more than 10 years if you leave it on every day for 12 hours. 
  • It's brighter than a 25 watt bulb 
  • Light source is completely hidden, it shines only when you touch the glass with your marker 
  • LED provides a warm light temperature radiating from your drawing. 
  • You can display it in portrait mode or Landscape mode 
  • It has identical back and front; you can draw on either side of the lamp 
  • Dimmer switch allows Lit lamp to adapt to various uses 
  • The recessed frame allows your arm to rest on the edge away from the glass while you draw 
  • The stand neatly hides the cord in the back
  • Use our permanent paint marker and preserve your art 

The process

We built and tested over 30 working prototypes until all of it's functional components and light quality were perfected.  All of our electrical components meet UL safety and performance standards.

 Rewards

Why are we on Kickstarter?  

In order to make Lit Lamp affordable, we need to set up manufacturing and assembly plant.  The high upfront cost of tooling and assembly can only be met if we have enough people interested in Lit Lamp.  We have a strong working relationship with highly qualified manufacturers who fully understand and are capable of producing Lit Lamps in large quantity. We will be working with experienced industry professionals with on site quality control personnel to manufacture Lit Lamps at the highest quality. To ensure that our lamps meet  the highest performance standard, our team in Brooklyn will test and pack every single Lit Lamp before shipping. 

Skilled local craftsmen will make all of our Limited Edition Maple Lit Lamps. 

Risks and challenges

We have considered all foreseeable obstacles and added additional time for any potential hiccups we may encounter. We will be working with manufacturing consultants and logistic experts to make sure the manufacturing process is as efficient and effective as possible. Our relationship with our customers is very important to us. Throughout the entire process of manufacturing and shipping we will keep you well informed. Thank you for your support!
