Domed decals give your organisation the opportunity to bring an extra dimension to your brand or logo. The demand on a brand to be an evolving dynamic representation of a business and its values is a challenge to any marketing department but the use of a domed decal makes this possible. Domed decals are tactile and eye catching - the ideal tool for adding to folders and promotional items. We have seen many different applications for domed decals including:
- Key rings or fobs
- Mobile phones
In fact, you can apply them on any flat non-porous surface.
Domed decals are also very durable. They have been used on HGVs, coaches, caravans, airplanes and boats as well as wheel centres and on many other car accessories. The mirrored silver lettering on the side of a boat or caravan can be very eye-catching.
One of the most interesting uses is on prototypes. Domed decals are an inexpensive method of introducing professional branding to a product that is at the beginning of its life, not quite ready for mass market but ready to be shown to possible investors.
Domed decals are also very useful for custom-built items offering a very effective flexible brand presence.
A further use is on white goods, such as cookers, fridges, microwaves etc that are imported unbranded but need a inexpensive effective branding solution. Due to the flexibility of domed decals, professional branding on unbranded items is quick, easy and very cost effective. These decals are also so flexible they can be used on rounded surfaces provided the angle isn't too acute. With this level of flexibility the items they can be attached to increases to include umbrella handles, pencil cases, cylindrical containers or torches.
Domed Decals or bubble badges as we call them, are created by dispensing a two part liquid resin which flows to the edge of the badge. This forms a meniscus (like the top of a glass of water) and when cured, creates a high quality, glossy 3D badge. These can be made to any shape, the only limitation is sharp returns and all corners must have a minimum of 1mm radius applied.
Putting the doming on a decal creates the illusion of a 3D effect making your logo or brand more noticeable. Using different backgrounds will add extra effects such as brushed stainless steel or mirrored silver.
