Custom Conference Table Logos

The Ultimate Way to Customize

At Paul Downs, our experts can incorporate your organization’s logo into your custom conference table. There are five ways to do this: inlaying, where the logo is made up of individual pieces of wood; overlaying, where a printed vinyl panel is applied to the finished wood surface; custom printed laminate, where we take any kind of complex graphic and have it made into a high durability laminate sheet;  carving, where the logo is a shaped and colored inlay panel; and engraving, where the logo is burned into the table top.

(Here are examples of conference tables with all of these processes.) Please contact us to discuss your options for submitting your logo. We will recommend which process will work best for you. We need a high-quality graphic file to work with – preferably a vector image, but we can also work with .eps or very high resolution .jpg file.

Inlaid Logos

Simple graphics with hard-edged elements work best for logos.  The woods used can affect the appearance, so it’s best to avoid highly striped woods in the background. When woods of the original color aren’t available, we can substitute appropriate replacements. We recently did another cool military logo, this time for the Pacific Air Forces HQ in Hawaii and the 835th Cyberspace Operations Squadron. Logos can be very elegant when replicated in an unusual wood. We can use dyed veneers to get colors that don’t occur naturally.  There are some limits to what shades are available, but this approach can be very effective. We can also make inlaid logos from metal. We usually use brushed aluminum or brass, then cut it into a wood background.

Vinyl Onlays

A vinyl onlay is a lower cost way to duplicate complex designs with custom colors and shading.  We take your graphic file to a sign shop, which prints and cuts the logo onto a vinyl sheet (just like the ones used for truck graphics). We apply that to a wood panel and put a finish over it. The finish adheres very well and matches the rest of the table exactly.  This is the least expensive option for logos. It’s the only way we can precisely duplicate logos with shaded elements and non-wood colors. Vinyl logos can be quite complex.  They need to be applied under the finish coat, which adds to the cost, but the results can be spectacular.

Custom Printed Laminate

Laminate tables have long been preferred for their low cost and high durability.  Now we can have custom printed sheets made at a reasonable cost.  This allows for fabulous, high-impact graphic designs.  The process starts with client-supplied logo files.  Our design engineers will use these to design the table, and make a software simulation of what the table will look like. After client approval, we send the graphics files to Wilsonart, and then get back a sample of the graphic printed onto a 15″ x 19″panel. These tables look great when finished. Pricing for these tables is driven largely by size, as the printed laminate has a fixed price per square foot no matter what we put on it.  The quality of the images that our clients provide can also effect cost – if you can supply high-resolution vector files (.eps format) it cuts down on our processing time.

Carved Logos

Some of our clients prefer a carved logo for their custom conference table.  This adds depth and color to the logo. We don’t do these in house – they are supplied by sign makers.  The example seen here was done by Artsignworks. We fit their work into the table we fabricated for the Marines.

Engraved Logos

Engraved logos are done by burning the image directly into the background with our laser. This is a low-cost way to replicate complex graphics. Here’s an example from a custom conference table we made for 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.  The logo is engraved into maple, and enhanced with dye stains. Engraving works great on black granite where you can combine engraved stone panels with an inlaid veneer logo. One nice thing about this approach is that it’s easy to lift out the tiles and replace them with another image. We usually use a standard 12″ x 12″ floor tile in this kind of design. We also can use engraved glass.

Unique Branding

Occasionally we’re asked by a client to incorporate branding that’s specific to their organization, that’s different than our traditional methods. We’ve had some fun with these projects and are happy to collaborate and create a really cool table that makes a statement, using materials and references that will promote your brand. Let’s start a conversation on your project.

Behind The Scenes Inlaid Logo Process

Inlaid logos look amazingly cool and can be made using veneers or laminate. The process starts with the graphics files – we convert them to vectors and separate each logo into all of its component pieces. Then we use our laser to cut them out. Next, they must be assembled by hand. If the logo is complicated, this can take many hours. Here’s Ryan Bardsley lifting pieces for a complex logo out of laser-cut curly sycamore.

All of those pieces then get taped together into the main veneer panel.

Tape is applied to the other side of the logo to hold it in place during pressing. Then the face is flipped and the first batch of tape removed, revealing the logo in its glory.

Next, the complete face is pressed and glued to the substrate. Now it is dead flat and securely fastened to the table top. We then glue the edges on the table and do a whole lot of sanding.

When prep is completed, the table goes into the finishing room. The finished conference table (made for Laxgalts’ap Village in British Columbia) is spectacular.
