Lots of email questions come through asking if event lighting rentals will look better on white or black background material. No material is actually needed at all, but if you are using it to block a section of the room either black or white will work equally great. This photo is a fantastic example because they used both options. As you can see, half the photo has lighting on a black drape, while they are using a white drape in another section. This photo is from the Ft Lauderdale Fireman Hall in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our DIY uplighting customers rented 24 uplights and set them to red to space throughout this large room.

Lighting makes everything cooler, even an event as geeky as a 3d printing competition. This event was put together by the talented guy that runs our repair department. No, the rental lights are not 3D printed yet, but who knows...maybe someday? :) In the meantime, the event was very fun and the blue uplighting looked pretty cool.

You don't have to light with colors, white is also a great choice and provides extra illumination where there isn't enough. These photos were sent in by a rental client from a wedding at The Foundry at Lake Oswego in Lake Oswego, Oregon. They rented 4 of our wireless uplights and placed one on each corner of their dance floor and set them to "C7". Very elegant way to highlight the dance floor!
Wireless uplighting provides the most flexibility in setting up because you don't need to worry about running cables everywhere which is nice. The downside is they all need to be charged in advance (which does require plugging them in). Recommendation: Rent at least 1 extra in case there are any technical difficulties or a battery runs out of juice early. You will find a place to use it somewhere - more is always better than not enough!
You don't have to light with colors... Our uplighting also has a setting for white. 10 lights were set up for an event in Boca Raton, Florida at the Village of Boca Barwood.
To get an idea of how the colors look, check out photos sent in by our customers.
You can also customize the colors by setting a specific RGB value. Here's a little cheat sheet we put together to help with some up lighting color choice suggestions: custom color codes page.
