Add a Special Touch with Apollo Gobos

Do you need to create scenic elements in theater and stage, add a personal touch to an event, design a special effect or promote a brand or product launch? Gobos can help create all of this and much more.

Apollo Design is the world’s leading innovator, manufacturer and distributor of gobos. We have created over 2.5 million gobos since our establishment in 1992 and we maintain a collection of over 3,300 gobo patterns.

Sample of gobo in action.

Custom gobos are the bedrock of Apollo Design and the dedication we have for producing custom patterns is fundamental to our company. Each gobo is unique and our commitment to the customer, attention to detail and focus on quality never waivers.

We have an equally strong commitment to helping the earth stay clean. Since 2007, our gobos have been produced using a clean laser manufacturing process that eliminates over 1 oz. of toxic chemical waste per gobo.

Gobos can be metal, glass or plastic. The choice of material is dependent upon budget, application, fixture, and pattern design.


Metal

The design of a metal gobo is laser cut out of stainless steel allowing light shine through and project a white pattern on the surface. A color filter can be add to the fixture if color is desired.

Metal gobos require “bridging” which are very small lines that connect t internal structure of letters and designs. If bridging is not added, enclosed area such as the inside of the letter “O”, would fall out. It’s like carving a pumpkin.

Apollo metal gobos are made from .008 mil stainless steel with a hi level of nickel and chromium. This type of steel produces a very durable gobo with fi detail image and a long life.

Competitor’s gobos are made from .005 mil stainless steel with a high level carbon. The carbon begins to oxidize (rust) and breakdown faster than a gobo made fr steel with nickel and chromium.

Check it out! A magnet requires carbon steel to stick. A magnet will not stick to Apollo gobo. However, since competitor’s use carbon steel to make their gobos, it' stick.

Metal gobos from our collection typically ships within 24 hours, dependi upon availability. However, we regularly ship sooner than indicated.

1-Color Gobo Example

Food for Thought: Do I want a 1- or 2-Color Gobo?

When creating a custom gobo, some patterns may require a black dichroic filter to eliminate a surrounding circle of light.

The example below compares a 1-color (left) to a 2-color (right) glass gobo. The 1-color gobo has a surrounding circle of light and may appear blurry. The 2-color gobo does not have a circle of light and the image appears to be sharper. A black plate has been added to achieve this effect. Even though you don’t “see” the black when the gobo is projected, the black filter is a color and you will be charged for a 2-color pattern.

Metal Gobo Example

2-Color Gobos

A 2-Color glass gobo is made from two color dichroic filters. It projects 2 colors with intricate detail. A reminder, a black filter is considered a color.
