About Apollo Design® Custom Gobos
Apollo Design® Technology, Inc. officially launched in January 1992, as a Custom Gobo manufacturer. And Custom Gobos remain at the core of what we do today.
Our focus on quality never waivers. Apollo's care for the customer, attention to details, unrivaled turnaround time, and environmentally sound production sets us apart.
Apollo Design® was a trailblazer in developing the technology to move from chemical to laser etching. The results were impressive: higher resolution, consistency in color and duplication, and faster turnaround time.
Since 2009, Apollo gobos are produced using clean laser manufacturing, eliminating toxic chemical waste. The industry recognized their initiative and granted Apollo Design® LDI’s Green Product Award: Laser Gobos (2009).
Our gobos have produced effects and scenic elements, promoted products, provided a personal touch and more. Apollo gobos appear in a vast variety of installations, productions, and events around the world including:

Select patterns in our gobo catalog can be created for metal pattern usage as well as SuperResolution® glass or ColourScenic® patterns. This is dependent on the pattern's level of detail and gobo size needed.
Metal Gobos: Metal gobos require "bridging" which are very small lines that connect the internal structure of letters and designs. If bridging is not added, enclosed areas, such as the inside of the the letter 'O', would fall out.
SuperResolution® Gobos: A SuperResolution® gobo is a glass gobo that projects black & white or grayscale photographs or graphics with intricate detail. Donuts are recommended for use with SuperResolution® gobos. This creates a sharper image by blocking unwanted light.
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.
ColourScenic® Gobos: A ColourScenic® gobo is a glass gobo that projects full color, specific colors or gradients of color with intricate detail. In order to ensure the highest quality, some patterns cannot be produced in a particular size or substrate.
PrintScenic® Gobos: Many of our ColourScenic® glass designs are also available as a PrintScenic® gobo. Please check with your dealer for further details and availability.
