Having your personally designed monogram projected on the wall above your Head (or Sweetheart) Table, or centered on your dance floor at your venue is a fantastic option to add a touch of elegance to your wedding.

 

What is a Gobo?

A gobo is a template that light shines through to project an image onto a surface. The term “gobo” is an acronym that stands for “GOes Before Optics.”

Gobos are used in specialty Gobo Projection Lights that are designed to shine through the gobo template and project the design from the template onto a surface.

Gobos come in a variety of sizes that are based on the lights used to project them. These can vary greatly between light units. Many cheap lights DJ and other rental companies have use very small gobo templates. This limits the detail that can be used in a design and the brightness of the image.

Gobo lighting is also referred to as logo lighting, monogram lighting, name-in-lights, wedding lighting, or texture lighting.

What Type of Gobo Do I Need?

The right gobo type will allow your design to shine without limiting it. The right gobo type will also fit and work in the light that you will be projecting with. Making sure you have the right size and the right type will ensure you get the best results possible from your projection.
