You can either upload your artwork on our website or send art files attached to an email.

In which colors I can use to edit my Artwork?


We usually match the colors of your artwork with the colors of our Standard Color Palette. Shown here are the colors as Pantone print equivalents so they can be compared in color books. Gobos are manufactured in an entirely different process from print but we believe this is the easiest way to make color references.

We are able to make virtually any color, but we cannot guarantee the exact match of your colors in the resulting projection due to variations in the fixtures and projection surface. The color of a projected image will always vary from the print color as there is only limited control over the projection environment.

Please let us know if you need us to match a special color. This may require to change to a more expensive gobo color type, for example, a Two Color Gobo can become a Full Color type.

Our gobos materials are imported from Germany, which is high temperature resistant ability. The working temperature is -40℃~300℃.

How should I handle my glass gobo?

Handle a gobo carefully, its glass after all. Don’t touch the gobo surface because the oil from your skin may “bake in” when exposed to the high temperature of the light source. Remove fingerprints with a soft cloth. If necessary dampen the cloth with some alcohol. When not in use, store the gobo at a dry place.

How to mount or change my gobo?

Please read our manuals or check our video of gobo changing.

Which direction should the gobo be placed in the fixture?

For all of our projectors, please always remember mount the gobos front side facing the LED light source before using.

How should I clean my gobos?

It is very important to try to avoid getting dirt or grease on to the surface of the gobos as this can cause heat to build up in these areas causing hot spots, these hot spots may damage the coatings. The aluminum coating used on the gobos is very thin and is easily scratched. Great care must be taken when trying to clean them. Always try compressed air first. Do not use any moistened (like alcohol or acetone) even water to clean it. Only can be cleaned by very gently using a dry silk or cotton or air blower to remove the dust or fingerprint.
