Any estimate when your custom printed / custom sized & shaped gels will be available [Feel free to verbally whip me severely].
Toodleoo!

I can tell you the first line of filters will likely be diffusions followed by color correction transmissions, as LED fixtures seem to lean more towards those products. I can't give you a definite production timeline, however, as we are working through a backlog of gobo related orders at the moment. :)

Just saw this on BR and hopped on here to congratulate you. Excellent speedy turnaround. Well done.
Thank you, amorton, we are so excited to be making gobos again for those who have been able to break the stranglehold on our live event industry!

Thank you so much, Tim. Working from our temporary space for the next year or so has been an interesting experience. Instead of turning right down our 'old street', I proceed an additional two miles and turn left. Unusual but very welcomed!

Experimenting with a new PrintScenic process which allows custom PrintScenic plastic gobos to be used in ETC Source Four Lustr series 2 fixtures. This fixture had been considered too hot for use with PrintScenic before, but our new equipment has it nailed down!

Is it a different plastic or thickness or a different bonding agent in the printer? Just curious.

Have you tried with other fixtures too? The Elation WW and CW IP fixtures were also too hot for them.

Sorry for the delay, Dave- been busy!

We have a new high res printer which uses a different mix 'o inks and bonding agents. I'll admit that the ETC Lustr Series 2 was too hot for our product before, but now we've got it nailed. After over 30 hours in the Lustr 2, the PrintScenic looks almost new!

If you have these fixtures I'll send samples of our new PrintScenic for you to test. Just let me know!
