LightWedge LLC is a Boston-based company that designs and manufactures reading accessories, including: reading lights, magnifiers and e-reader accessories. Since our company began in 2002, we have been driven to innovate and become the leader of the categories in which we compete.
In the beginning...
The founder of our company, Jamey Bennett, conceived the idea of the LightWedge Original (our first product) when he was in high school. Yes, he was sort of a geek. But, his invention allowed a person to focus light on the page they were reading without lighting up the whole room, something every spouse of an avid bedtime reader knows all too well. Not surprisingly, the LightWedge product received several design and innovation awards including a coveted nod from Oprah. But we didn’t stop there. Over the years, we introduced more unique lighting products that help make reading easier and more enjoyable whether, at home or on-the-road.
In 2006, we launched our first magnifiers. We knew that we could innovate and build better tools that help readers, hobbyists and crafters everywhere. Our broad selection has everything from large-view magnifiers used for reading to high power task magnifiers for fine detail work and jewelry-making to a small pocket magnifier that lights up and collapses to go anywhere. We even have a special prescription magnifier to help you make sure you can read your medication labels and instructions. Our newest magnification products, Advance Comfort magnifiers featuring ergonomically shaped and balanced soft-touch handles, will be available in early 2011.
But we didn’t stop there either...
In the past year we’ve added a new line of e-reader accessories under the Verso name. No longer a niche market, e-reading is now the most popular way to read books, magazines and even newspapers. Our products focus on helping to illuminate, protect and personalize your e-reader device. We have cool lights, protective cases and unique covers that are specially designed for e-readers and feature exclusive, upscale designs that have become the LightWedge standard.
We hope that you’ll enjoy using our products, whether you use them yourself or give them as a gift.
