Ever wondered how a Logo Mat makes it from a design to an actual floor mat?
We thought we’d share the epic journey that it goes through before being laid on your floor, proudly displaying your logo or brand.
The first stage of making any logo mat, is the design of the mat. You provide the logo and an idea of the colours you would like used, and the designers will do the rest. You will then be provided with a digital proof of how the mat will look.
If you are happy with the proof, then the process of making your logo mat begins. If you’d like to make any changes to the colours or the layout, that’s fine! You can make as many changes to the design as you like before the mat starts being made.
The Mat Face
The face of your logo mat will always start as a plain carpet.
The carpet is made from a PET yarn that contains 50% post-consumer recycled content.
This new and innovative PET material makes the mat extremely stain resistant and UV resistant compared with nylon yarn. PET yarn also has great dirt retention and absorption.
Now for the really exciting bit, where your mat starts it’s journey through our state of the art, high definition printer!
This is where the design is printed onto the mat face using dye that can print up to 60 different colours.
The dye will print all the way to the base of the fabric, to ensure that the colours remain vibrant, even in high traffic areas.
Each mat will spend around one hour on average going through the printing and drying process on this machine.
Once the mat reaches the end of it’s journey through the printer, it is printed, dry and ready to be backed.
The mat face is backed onto a heavy duty nitrile rubber by hand and then put through a very hot oven to mould the rubber backing to the carpet.
Once the mats have cooled down, the edges are then trimmed to perfection before they are packaged up and sent to their new home – all in just 7-10 working days!
So there it is…the journey of a logo mat from start to finish.
