Light Bulb Lingo | Shape & Size

Over the years, hundreds of bulb shapes in a variety of sizes have been introduced for general and specialized applications. As needs evolved, some shapes were discontinued and others were expanded. Click to see the most common shapes and sized used today. Each comes in a variety of wattages, colors, finishes and bases. Not all possible combinations of shape, size, wattage, color, finish and base may be available.

Specialized Solutions

We Are A Highly Specialized Organization, For Your Highly Specialized Needs Today’s lightbulb distributor wants you to tell them exactly what lightbulbs you need. This requires you to spend hours researching, organizing, and becoming a lightbulb expert, so you can make the job of your lightbulb distributor easy. We think this relationship is upside down. We feel it is our job to make your job easy, not the other way around. The solution… bring the Maris Lighting experts “in house” and put the two and a half decades of Maris experience and concierge service and tools to work for you.
