ColorBright™ Vivid Color LED strip lights are the perfect way to add a ferocious amount of beautiful vivid colored lighting in compact places. The LED chips are mounted on flexible strips of printed circuit boards (FPCB) with strong 3M adhesive backing. Sometimes referred to as "LED tape lights," the flexible design of LED strips allows for the addition of red, green, blue, amber in basically any space you can imagine. The fact that the flexible PCBs can be bent up to 90 degrees and cut every 3 LEDs make them very versatile and customizable solutions for adding color lighting wherever you need it.
Top Features and Benefits:
✔ Available in red, green, blue, and amber colors
✔ 15-year Warranty
✔ 50,000 Hour Lifespan (8 hours a day for 17 years)
Q: What are the top 4 comparing factors to look for before purchasing LED strip lights?
1. Make sure you know the requirements for your project, then when looking at options, compare lumen output, CCT, and CRI. 2. Compare LED strip size and number of chips on the reel. 3. Understand the wattage and voltage that the LED strip light uses. 4. Make sure that the products have verifiable quality.

Q: What is the importance of UL Listed?
UL is an acronym for the Underwriters Laboratories. They are an independent product safety certification organization. A good summary used by UL is, "a not-for-profit organization dedicated to public safety." This means you can install these LEDs in commercial spaces, industrial applications, and in your home with peace of mind.
Q: What is the product warranty?
We’re so happy with the quality of our product, we offer a 15-year warranty on most of our LED strips to all of our clients. The warranty on power supplies ranges from 2 to 7 years which is model dependent.
Q: What is the lifespan of your strip lights?
Our lights have been rigorously tested and have an expected lifespan of 50,000 hours before dropping to 70% luminosity. This means that if you were to use your lights 12 hours a day, every day, the lights would be expected to last longer than 10 years. Even after that time has elapsed, the lights will maintain a brightness of 70%. Higher-output strips require a heat sink to reach the expected lifespan and beyond.
Q: What is color temperature?
The color of light can be quantified by referring to its color temperature. White light is measured in Kelvins (K). Most white lights fall in a spectrum between 1800K and 6200K. When getting close to 3000K, the light is noticeably warmer. On the other end of the spectrum, the lights have a blue-ish tint and cooler tone when nearing 6500K.
Q: Which color should I choose?
Choosing the correct color lights for your project is very important. Consider the look and feel you want your project to have. What other color lights will be present? What material and color are the materials you wish to light? We can help you choose!
Q:What are lumens (lm)?
This is a quantifiable amount of light produced by an LED strip or other light-producing product. This is one way we can measure light output.
Q: What is a 3528 SMD LED chip?
3528 SMD (Surface Mounted Diode) represents the size of the LED chips on the strip. A 3528 SMD chip measures at 3.5mm x 2.8mm. Click here for more information on LED chip sizes.
Q: How do I mount the lights?
The 3M double sided adhesive that is found on the back of the LED strip allows you to install them in most locations. Be sure to thoroughly clean the surface to remove all dust and particulate matter before mounting the strip. Certain surfaces may require you to take additional measures to secure the strips lights into place. Feel free to call us with any questions.
Q: Can I cut the strips myself?
Yes, LED strips are made to be cut to your desired length. Using sharp scissors, you can cut the strip every few inches (on a line that's marked after every third LED).
Q: What do I need to turn on my lights?
To turn on LED strips, you will need to connect to a LED power supply. For connecting strips to the power supply we recommend soldering to make the strongest connections. Another option is to use our solderless connectors, which is a faster and easier way to install LED strips.
Q: Which wire gauge do I need?
Different setups require different wire gauges (wire thickness) for safety and performance. The current and run length will determine the exact gauge of wire needed for your project. Read here for more information on how to select the correct wire gauge for your LED strip light installation as well as managing voltage drop.
1. If you plan to dim your LED strips using a hardwired Lutron wall dimmer, you need a Zurik dimmable driver. This driver itself will be dimmed from the Lutron switch. 2. If you do not plan to dim the lights from a hardwired wall dimmer and want to dim them with one of our dimmers, you will need a non-dimmable LED driver [Mean Well or Flexfire LEDs Brand]
