Commonly Asked Questions

Why don't you ship to Canada?  My order won't go through!
We don't ship to Canada because we have a Canadian distributor who manufactures our Modlode products in Canada and ships from Ontario to our Canadian customers.  This saves our Canadian customer significant money in shipping without customs fees for shipping across the boarder.  Please go to Modlode Canada's website to purchase at

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes, we ship our Mod Place Card Holders and Mod Sign Holders  to customers in Europe and Asia via our European Distributor based in Istanbul, Turkey.  DHL shipping fees are $12 USD to anywhere in Europe and $22 to locations in Asia.  Please contact us for specific shipping costs and we can send you a custom invoice.  

What are the different metallic finishes you offer in your products?
Modlode offers all products in 4 different colors: Brass (which looks gold), Black Matte, Silver (not actually real silver) and a raw copper tubing.   
What is the difference between a Sphere and a Dome?

The Sphere is a circular figure woven with tubing to make a complete sphere.  The Dome is only  2/3rds of a Sphere and is open on the bottom.  The fact that the Dome has an open bottom makes it easier for florists to work with them as the Domes are simply set overtop of the floral arrangement.  With the Spheres, the florist has to create the arrangement inside of it.  Domes are also cheaper to ship as they can can be stacked or folded down. 


What size of Domes and Spheres are the most popular for Centerpieces?
The most popular sizes are the 8" and 10" Domes and the 7.5" and 9.5" spheres.  If you want to use minimal flowers the 8" Dome or 7.5" Sphere are best.  If you want to have room for lots of flowers the 10" Dome or 9.5" Sphere are recommended.  If you large tables and would like a large centerpiece then the 11' Sphere is needed. 

Do you take custom orders?
Yes, we love to get custom order requests.  Whether you want different combinations of ornaments, bulk pricing for our items or custom sizing for our products we can do it all!

Do you Wholesale your products?
No, we are not considering wholesale accounts at this time.  

Can I pick up my order?
Yes, you can always pick up your order from my location in Woodbury, Minnesota.   

Why can't I find a product on your website that I saw on @Modlode Instagram of Facebook?
If you don't see the product on our website it may have been a custom order for a customer.  Contact us and we'd be happy to give you the details and make one for you as well.

Will the brass or copper tubing tarnish?
 In time, depending on the amount of moisture in the air, the brass and copper tubes will darken slightly.  To keep you items in the same condition they arrive at we suggest that you leave them in the plastic bags they were shipped in and remove them when you are ready to display.  If you want to remove any patina/tarnishing use a paper towel with some white vinegar and gently rub the tubes.  This will quickly and easily remove and patina.  

Will the Silver or Black Matte tubing tarnish?
No.  They will not tarnish.  They have a finish on them that protects from oxidation and tarnishing.

Do you rent your centerpieces?
We will consider renting to customer who are local only and are able to pick up and drop off product.  Please contact us for information.
