Custom Logos

20 Dec 2016

With the recent interest we've received in custom logos we wanted to take a minute to talk about our abilities and processes. There are a few different methods that we have available, all with their own pros and cons. Without boring you too much, let's get right to the details!

Sublimation: This uses a special heating process that will bond a design to the fibers of the fabric. Examples shown below include FYF and Reactive Gunworks on our Helix skydiving wing. This is also how we print our logos onto our sliders.

-Pros: Won't peel/wear off over time. Doesn't add any bulk to the wing (no difference in packing). High level of detail, including colors and fades. Shortest additional production time.
-Cons: Limited sizing (currently) available.

Sewn on: This is exactly how it sounds. We cut out and sew your logo on top of the skins. While we are very capable of this method, we have not received a sew on logo order as of this article, so we currently have no example to show.

-Pros: No size limit. Won't wear off over time. Very bold/visible from far distances.
-Cons: Depending on wear, could potentially come unsewn, allowing dirt/debris between logo and skins which may accelerate structural wear. Colors limited to fabric available, solids only. Adds significant bulk to wing. Depending on how technical the design, there may be limitations. Additional production time.

Sewn in: For this method, we specially design each skin and break it up into pieces which come together to form your logo. For example, the center cell bottom skin is normally one piece, however this method would break it up into multiple pieces before moving through the production phase. Example shown below include Cookie logo on our Loki speed wing.

-Pros: No size limit. Won't wear off over time. Very bold/visible from far distances.
-Cons: Colors limited to fabric available, solids only. Adds bulk to wing. Depending on how technical the design, there may be limitations. Longest additional production time.

Well, there you have it! Since each logo and style presents it's own challenges, we won't promise anything without talking to you in detail to determine what exactly you're looking for. If you have something in mind, think about the specifics of size, location, number of colors and anything else to help us see your vision!
