MICASHADES custom shades: pricing

The table below shows examples of custom shade prices.
Please feel free to call or email for cost on other sizes or shapes,
or if you have design questions.

Each flat mica side or facet involves precision cutting and edge finishing, all done by hand. Seams and edges are finished with handcut, handcolored, archival, textured paper. The seam finishes are mitered at corners, and otherwise custom-fit to your lampshade design. Paper seams and edge trims produce an extremely secure and integrated finish, create a light-weight lampshade, and offer endless possibilities for trim color.

Prices are based on size, shape, and the number of mica pieces in the shade. Additionally, curved panels, and round and oval shades, all involve heating and molding of the mica.


Pricing is for custom-made, stenciled shades, except for chandelier shades and half shades which are priced unstenciled. For prices of plain shades in other categories subtract 12% from the listed price.

Lampshade costs will additionally include the actual cost of insured shipping to you, and will vary with the order. There is a $10 handling charge per package to cover packing materials and careful packaging of your order.

The steel wire frames in our lampshades are made to order for us in California and the sheet mica we use is made in Virginia--otherwise all construction is done in Oregon. Stencils are our original designs, taken from period traditions, and can be re-sized to fit your shade size and shape. Stencil colors can be altered to meet your decorating palette.
