WHAT IS MONOGRAM LIGHTING? Monogram lighting is a popular lighting effect used for special events. It displays a logo, monogram, or text in lights. The monogram light can be projected onto any surface. This lighting effect is created using a specialized projector with a disc that contains the design. Monogram lights are commonly used for dance floors, venue walls, and tent ceilings. For example, it is used to project monograms at weddings, and to display logos in lights at corporate events. This type of lighting is also referred to as gobo lighting. Monogram lighting is an effective way to personalize an event.

TYPES OF MONOGRAM LIGHTING:
We rent three types of monogram lights: standard, premium, and pro. Choose your projector based on where you want to display the monogram! The standard projector works on a white wall up to 20 feet away, with overhead lights dimmed. The premium projector is brighter so you can use it on any surface, up to 70 feet away. The pro projector is the same brightness as the premium, but creates double the image size. Click HERE to read more about each type of monogram lighting.
HOW TO SETUP MONOGRAM LIGHTING:
It is so easy to setup a monogram projector - no experience required! It takes a matter of minutes.
1. Plug it in.
2. Place projector on a table or tripod.
3. Aim projector towards a wall or dance floor.
You're done! We ship your projector pre-loaded with your custom design, so it will instantly appear once you plug in the light! That's all it takes to setup DIY monogram lighting!

ALL ABOUT WALL PROJECTORS
We rent three types of monogram projectors. The main difference between the projectors is the brightness and size of image. The Wall Projector is our entry-level projector, which works best on a white or light colored wall with the overhead lights dimmed. Project up to 20 feet away, with a maximum image size of 6.6 feet. The farther away the projector is from the wall, the larger the image will be. For example, at 10 feet away, this projection image is 3.3 feet wide. Click HERE for the complete size chart.
Choose the Wall Projector if:
✔ You will project on a light colored wall
✔ You can place the projector 10-20 feet away from the wall
✔ You want an image size of 3 - 6 feet
ALL ABOUT FLOOR PROJECTORS
The Floor Projector is our mid-level projector, which works on any color surface, such as a wooden dance floor or dark wall. If you plan to project on a floor, you'll need to mount the projector up high and aim it down at the floor. We offer tripod lighting stands for $35. Simply screw the projector onto the tripod - click HERE for the how-to video. Otherwise, check with your venue / band / DJ to see if they can mount the projector for you. Project up to 70 feet away, with a maximum image size of 12 feet. The farther away the projector is from the wall, the larger the image will be. For example, at 10 feet away, this projection image is 3 feet wide. Click HERE for the complete size chart.
Choose the Floor Projector if:
✔ You want to project on a dance floor OR dark surface
✔ You want an average size projection image
ALL ABOUT LARGE FORMAT PROJECTORS
The Large Format (Pro) Projector is our top end projector, which works on any color surface and creates the largest image size. Project up to 70 feet away, with a maximum image size of 35 feet. The farther away the projector is from the wall, the larger the image will be. For example, at 10 feet away, this projection image is 5 feet wide. Click HERE for the complete size chart.
Choose the Pro Projector if:
✔ You want to cover a large area with the projection image
MONOGRAM LIGHT TECHNICAL DETAILS:

WHERE TO USE MONOGRAM LIGHTS?
There are so many ways to use monogram lighting for events! They will instantly personalize any space. Use monogram lights on walls, floors, drapery, ceilings, tents, backdrops, and even trees -- just about any surface! You can use just 1 monogram light to add a personalized touch. Or, use multiple monogram lights to add a "wow" factor! For example, project a company logo at the entrance of a venue, project a wedding monogram on the dance floor, or use many lights with a pattern design to transform an entire wall. There are so many possibilities with monogram lights!
MONOGRAM LIGHTING COLORS:
Our standard projectors can be setup in one color. You can also upgrade to a multi-color design for additional fee. We recommend white for best results with monogram lighting. This is because white will project the brightest (even when projecting onto a white wall, due to how the technology works). Otherwise, any of the colors listed on our order form are proven colors that work well with monogram lighting.

WHAT IS GOBO LIGHTING? Gobo lighting is a type of event lighting that projects graphics or text in lights. This lighting effect is created by inserting a disc, called a gobo disc, into a special gobo projector. The gobo disc contains the chosen design. The gobo projector uses a light and magnifying lenses to enlarge and project the image from the disc. This type of lighting is also commonly referred to as monogram lighting. Gobo lighting is used to customize any type of special event.
WHAT'S A GOBO? A gobo is a small disc that is used with a projector to display a logo, monogram, pattern, or special message. The term "gobo" stands for “Go Before Optics”, which refers to the location where the gobo disc is positioned in the gobo projector. Specifically, gobo discs are manufactured with a particular design in a stencil format. The gobo disc is then placed inside a gobo projector, in front of a light -- hence the name "go before optics" or "gobo" for short. The light travels through the stencil and then through the magnifying lens, thereby creating a large projection image. This image can be displayed on any surface, such as a wall or floor. This is one of the oldest types of event lighting in the industry.
