Graphics & LogosProducts
A variety of custom products which can display a theme, a word, name or logo of a manufacturer or merchant to identify its products distinctively from others of the same type. Logos can be either purely graphic (symbols/icons) or composed of the name of the organization (logo or word mark). Graphics and logos can be created using a variety of methods including medallions, etching, engraving, water jet cutting, or printing; and can be created in most any material type such as: glass, hard surface, carpet, rugs, mats, glass, mosaics, etc.
Etching and Engraving are methods to create a design onto a material by somehow cutting into the surface. Etching or “matting” of the surface is most often created by a laser etching machine. Engraving or etching can be done on a wide range of materials, such as wood, stone, marble, glass, rubber, acrylic and Plexiglas, leather, paper, textiles or foam. Glass/Hard Surface – The technique of etching can be sued to create designs on surfaces such as glass, metal, ceramic, stone, wood or other surfaces by applying acidic, caustic, or abrasive substances. Carpet, Rugs and Mats – Etching is created with a laser beam directed at a carpet substrate such that energy is transferred to the substrate in the form of heat. This heat alters the portion of the carpet surface struck by the laser, basically melting it. The laser beam is guided along a pre-determined path to create a desired pattern in the carpet substrate. The desired pattern may include variations in the depth of etching.
Glass is a non-crystalline solid material which is often transparent and has widespread practical, technological, and decorative usage in windows, window walls and custom designs or patterning. Logos and designs can be etched into glass.
Various commercial mats may display logos and designs that reveal the corporate brand of a company. These could be created by various techniques which include printing, tufting, etching, inlay, patterning techniques or insets.
An oval or circular decorative element resembling a medal, usually bearing a portrait or relief molding, used in flooring, vertical applications, textile design and architecture.
A decoration on a surface made by adhering small pieces of colored porcelain, stone, glass, or metals onto a mesh backing that when installed and grouted, creates pictures or patterns. Logos or branding elements can be created in mosaics for interior finishes. Mosaics are used more frequently on walls but are also found on floors.
Printed graphics can be incorporated into a variety of materials including: carpet, laminate, PVC, powder coated surfaces. Printing provides almost limitless design options.
Water Jet Cutting
A process of using a high-pressure narrow stream of water mixed with an abrasive material to cut shapes and details into materials which are impossible to achieve using other more conventional tools. This process can be used to create intricate designs in porcelain, stone, LVT, agglomerates, hardwood, metals, alloys, copper, composites, titanium, glass, and more.
