This is the most common question we're asked and you're certainly not alone in not knowing which to choose. Metal and Glass Gobos have their own advantages and disadvantages and the choice will really depend the design and the lantern you wish to project from. In many cases your lantern manufacturer will recommend a gobo material, so if unsure then please check with them or speak to a member of our team.

Metal Gobos
Patterns are etched from metal sheets to produce a stencil. Any 'islands' of metal are held in place with fine lines which may show in projection. Metal is cost effective and good for simple black & white designs. If you need to move the gobo from fixture to fixture or travel on the road with it, then it offers a pretty durable solution and will last the course. If you need to project something simple or as a one off then metal provides a cost effective solution.

Glass Gobos - Most Popular!
Images are created by etching away the metal or dichroic coating on the glass allowing for high resolution images, including greyscale and multi-colour. Glass Gobos are suitable for more detailed patterns, coloured logos and photographic images. They are recommended for long term use & the glass is able to withstand high temperatures in your lantern when handled correctly.

Can’t find your lantern manufacturer or model in the list?
If you can’t find either your lantern manufacturer or model in the drop down lists above then please select ‘other’ from the manufacturer dropdown. This will then provide a simple text field where you can detail as much information you have about your lantern. Don’t worry about finding out the gobo size, we’ll contact the manufacturer directly if we don’t already have the size listed for your gobo.

Not sure what the details are of the lantern/light you’re planning to use?
In order to produce your gobo in the correct size we’ll need to know which fixture you plan on projecting the gobo from. If you can’t access the fixture at this time then try and take a photo and send it to our team at [email protected] for more info.

Which gobo material should I choose?
Please refer to the “Which Gobo Material” tab.

How long does it take to produce the gobo?
Stock gobos are typically made to order and shipped the same day (depending on the time of your order). Custom gobos can take a slightly longer in order to ready the artwork and get your proofs approved. Our standard shipping offering deliver next day.

I’m in a rush! Can you get gobos to be quicker?
YES! We understand industry requirements and are used to turning orders around very quickly. If you have specific requirements then get in touch with our team and we’ll sort it out for you. We don’t charge a penny more...

I’m not sure which gobo would be right, can you help?
We sure can. Our staff are experts in gobo projection and we’ve pretty much seen it all done! If you’re looking for any advice when it comes to gobo projection then please get in touch.

Where are your gobos made?
We’re the leading dealer in the UK for Rosco products. All of our gobos are produced directly in the state of the art facility at Rosco in London & Texas. Rosco supports our vision of supplying the highest quality gobos by using the best materials and latest manufacturing technology, so we’ve become great partners.
