FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I use a video projector instead of a traditional gobo projector?

    We have a whole page that covers this topic. Check out the benefits of video projectors page for more info.

  • What do I need to get started?

    - A good projector (check out our recommendations here)

    - USB/thumb drive (recommendation here)

    - Mount so you can put your projector on a stand (we recommend the EZ Mount)

    - Projection ready design on USB drive (check out our designs here)

  • What do I get when I order from Projectorgram?

    It depends on what you order:

    Template design

    We will customize the design with your client's info. Once complete, we will send you the files. We will send your template design within 3 business days of you placing your order.

    Custom design

    We will send you a draft of your design within 4 business days of your order. Once the draft is approved, we will send you the files. The final files will be delivered within 2 business days of your approval of the proof.

    We will send 5 files of your static design and 2 files of your animated design. The files have the design in different sizes so you have options based on how far you are shooting the image. We recommend using the largest image that looks good in the space you are projecting in.

     

  • Do I need to do any prep to the files?

    They should be projection ready when you receive them from us. However, we highly recommend testing all files out in advance.

  • Do you produce gobos?

    We don't produce traditional steel or glass gobos. Rather, we are creating designs that are essentially a "digital gobo." The image we send you is what you will use to project the design we have created for you.

  • Can I edit the files you send?

    We've done all the design & editing so you don't have to. You could put them into Photoshop to do editing, but they are standard JPEG files. So there aren't any layers and it would be pretty difficult to edit. So your best bet is to be sure you have your client's approval after you have the final files from us.

  • How do I remove the black box?

    There are a few factors that play into removing the black box:

    - Put your design on a black background

    - Have some ambient light in the room (not necessary, as we shoot outdoors in dark conditions, but it helps)

    - Get some distance between the projector and the image. You don't need a ton of distance, but a good 10-15 feet or more is good.

    - The final thing you may need to do is lower the brightness. The BenQ projectors we use almost always are set at 50 for brightness and that is the sweet spot for those projectors. With others you may need to raise or lower it. You of course want the image to be as bright as possible without having the black box.
