How do you make a logo?Aerofix Admin2019-01-04T15:35:43+00:00
We have made a very wide variety of different logos in different sizes using a computer controlled cutter to create the shapes out of self-adhesive fabric that is applied to the surface of the wing.
Simple bold designs work best to give good impact and visibility. We can make a logo and lettering out of a variety of different coloured fabrics. Strong, dark colours give better contrast and work well viewed from below when lit from behind through the glider.
We can supply a cut logo for you to fit yourself, but unless it is fairly small and simple, we recommend that we do the fitting. The bottom surface of a glider is not flat, particularly where internal straps create billow, making fitting a logo spanning more than a couple of cells more awkward. Line tabs can also get in the way.
Can you make a logo out of any picture?Aerofix Admin2019-01-04T15:45:14+00:00
Lettering and straightforward designs can be converted into logos easily. A logo is made out of one or just a few solid fabric colours, so a more complex picture, such as a photo, would have to be simplified to design an effective logo.
Pictures are usually made up of individual pixels when saved using jpg, png and bmp file types. To cut a logo requires a different type of file which can be created using a pixel based image, but the conversion process can take time to do well.
How much does a logo cost?Aerofix Admin2019-01-04T16:01:16+00:00
The price reflects the time involved, which depends on the size and complexity of the design. The amount of artwork required to create an effective logo may also need to be taken into account.
If you’re prepared to fit the logo yourself, we can supply the logo and this will be less expensive.
What sort of file do you need to make a logo?Aerofix Admin2019-01-04T15:49:22+00:00
A logo is cut using what is called a vector file format, such as file types svg, eps and ai. The data in files of these types can be thought of as curves and lines defining the outline of the components in the design. If you have a file of this format available, that avoids the need for conversion.
More common files such as jpg, png and bmp, are rasterised file formats, comprised of individual pixels. If you only have a file of this type, then the higher the resolution, the better. A good quality, high resolution file can be converted into the necessary vector file format.
