About PhotoLamps

Sales 1
On Etsy since 2019

We make custom lamps with shades glowing with your photos or ours.

I am a retired Physics Professor from Purdue University and I have been an amateur photographer all of my adult life. You can see many of my photos on our blog At retirement I started a fine art printing business I soon discovered that photos on one of our print media, Water Resistant Satin Cloth by Lexjet, looked great with transmitted light. A few years later I developed a wood frame that stretches this ink-jet receptive synthetic fabric for display as a lamp shade. We now sell these at a local craft store See examples of our recent lamps at
