Lance-work – Ground-based 'firework' words and shapes

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE NOTE THE PARAGRAPH BELOW !!!!!

***********************************************************************************************************

PLEASE NOTE:

OUR LANCE-WORK IS AVAILABLE ONLY ON KOH SAMUI ISLAND … Unfortunately it is not possible to ship or post lance-work due to it being both fragile as well as very (VERY!) heavy, and therefore very (VERY!) expensive! … sorry 🙁

***********************************************************************************************************

The Perfect Way to Close (or start!) Your Evening Celebrations! …

If you want to finish your firework display with something just that little bit special, then have a look at some examples of our lance-work set-pieces. The video below shows a lovely lance-work set-piece for a wedding. For more examples of lance-work, take a look at our videos or the pictures on the ‘Gallery’ page…

We can provide almost any basic shape or short message, whether it is someone’s name, or ‘ I LOVE YOU’ or ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY’, or ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’ – or what about a heart-shape? … or even double inter-locked hearts? A flower… or a car?

Whatever shape or message you would like, the chances are that we can provide it… the choice is entirely yours!

 

Lance-work shapes and letters burn for approximately 1.5 minutes, and can come in red, blue, green, or yellow/white. The standard letters come in Upper-case and are approx. 60 cms tall (proportional width) and start at 550 baht each. Lance-work shapes – depending on their size and complexity – can cost as little as 1,000 baht (60cms basic heart-shape set-piece).

The letters are normally ‘CAPITAL’ letters, however, some fonts can work quite well with lance-work, so don’t hesitate to ask us if you want something a bit different.

Having a Corporate ‘get-together’? Why not have a lance-work set-piece with your company name in your corporate font? A stunning centre-piece that will make any corporate get-together just that little bit more special. We may even be able to approximate your corporate logo too!… Ask us for details 🙂

We can also create (to order) messages in any language, with individual letters starting at only 700 baht each. The price is dependent upon complexity, so simply tell us what you would like, and we will give you an idea of the cost involved.

Normal lance-work requires at least one weeks notice, as most are hand-made to order. Any ‘specials’ – different fonts, logo, complex shapes etc ideally require at least two weeks notice.

    I was wondering if you could give me a price quote on “MARRY ME SARA” with the heart over the words. I want to propose with a fireworks show with this at the end, but I need a price quote to save up for.

      Hey Kieth… didn’t Britney Spears come from your town? It just isn’t viable to make and send you the lancework Kieth… but how about forming the letters with sparklers on a length of wood and then buy some quick fuse (I think you can get that quite easily there). You can then stick the top of the sparklers into the length of quick fuse (use some tape to hold it in place). You will need a short length of the slower green fuse, which you can stick in the end of the quick fuse (the end that you are going to light). Then, at the right time, light the green slow fuse… which will then light the quick fuse… which will then light up the sparklers that form the letters!!! Got it? :)))) Good luck mate… alan & la-on

      Hi Mandy, thanks for your enquiry. The lance-work letters come in different sizes, with the 50cms high letters at 300 baht each… the 60 cms at 400 baht, and the 80 cms at 550 baht each. Bigger letters and varying letter styles can be made to order… prices on request. The standard heart-shape is approximately 100 cms high, and costs 950 baht. I hope this helps Mandy, but if there is anything else we can do to help you, or you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to email us. Have a brilliant day… La-on

      Hi Layla… bad news I’m afraid… due to the paranoia around terrorist actions it is extreeeeemly dificult to send explosives (of any kind) around the world without all of the ‘appropriate’ paperwork and permissions etc. So we don’t ship I’m afraid… sorry.

      Hi Nate, and thanks for your enquiry. Our standard lance-work letters (English – Upper case – 60 cms tall) start at 500 baht each. Other languages are possible too, and are made to order… cost depending on size and complexity, but starting at 700 baht each letter/character. We have made lance-work messages in English, Thai, Russian, Chinese, and Korean (so far!).

      Please note that lance-work is only available on Koh Samui island… it doesn’t transport either easily or cheaply!

      Hope this helps Nate.

      I’m sorry to say that it isn’t possible to ship our lance-work anywhere (due to it being both fragile and very heavy!)… it is available only on Koh Samui. Google ‘lance-work and your country may help you find a local supplier. Good Luck!

    Heart with I love you
    Can you price me each of these seperately? Also are they deliverable in the US?

      Sorry Gigi, but our lance-work is only available on Koh Samui… it just isn’t viable to ship or post it anywhere. Can I suggest that you Google ‘P.G.I.’ (Pyrotechnics Guild International), who are based in the U.S. – they may be able to help you find a more local supplier of lance-work. Good Luck!!

    Hello I was curious to know about how much it would be for “will you marry me Avery” or “marry me?”

    Reply
    • Mr.b

      Hi Kagan … lance-work letters are 500 baht each, so you can work out the best message for your budget easily… however… we can only provide lancework on Koh Samui … it isn’t transportable or shippable (is that a word? lol). If you Google ‘Lance-work’ together with your area/county etc, you may find a more local supplier (assuming you are not looking to visit us here on our lovely tropical island!) Good luck! 🙂

    Hi Coen, and thank you for your enquiry. I’m afraid we only provide services on Koh Samui island … it is also not viable to ship lance-work set-pieces anywhere – mainly due to the weight (VERY expensive to ship!), its fragility (it simply wouldn’t survive in one piece), and the fact that exporting explosive material these days is very difficult. If you Google ‘P.G.I.’ (Pyrotechnics Guild International) you will be able to access their member list to see if there are any suppliers of lance-work local to you. If – on the other hand – you are planning to visit our little corner of paradise, then we would have no problem in being able to provide you with your lance-work 🙂
