Living in a three-dimensional world, two-dimensional objects tend to fade into the background. The distinction that can take a printed piece from nice to noteworthy is doming! Empire can enhance your piece with a crystal-line dome, embossing, or both. Doming creates a clear, protective lens for the piece, making the colors pop.
Set yourself apart from the competition by using our crystal-line doming to enhance your decal's appearance. Empire offers a variety of unique doming techniques such as selective, colored, phosphorescent, thermo-chromatic, and scented doming (see below). Our dedicated engineers can assist you in choosing the correct method for your desired application.
Precise flooding of liquid resin to the decal's edge that creates a domed lense.
Custom doming of intricate shapes and graphic lettering (minimum radius and letter thickness required). Contact us to see if this process is compatible with your project.
Technology that allows customized placement and curing of doming liquid to a barrier ink, while other areas remain undomed. Selective doming is ideal for overlay applications to enhance the tactile feel or create additional visual interest.
A scented additive is combined with the resin to create custom scents like coffee, chocolate, floral, or pine.
An illuminating effect that glows in the dark!
The domed surface changes colors with the application of heat or cold.
Embossing creates form and function on keypad overlays, and generates additional emphasis on a printed piece. Doming creates a clear protective lens for the piece. For more info on embossing, go here.
