Textured Effects for Custom Inflatables

Texture Book 2What Are Textures?

You’re probably familiar with Landmark Creations’ ability to produce complex 3-D inflatables and other air-filled items. But did you know that we have mastered the art and science of using textured effects that can be printed onto the fabric? If you want the branch your inflatable parrot sits on to have tree bark, or that award to look like stainless steel, incorporating textures into your next project might be just what you need.

How We Create Textures

The process of creating such lifelike textures is quite complex and fascinating. Basically, it’s a matter of developing the surface art on our models in 3-D then flattening them and digitally printing the texture onto the fabric. 

This can be done in different ways including multi-layer combinations of baking 3-D materials that simulate light and reflections to image manipulation, vector graphics, and multi-dimensional painting.

Are you looking to take your visual elements to the level?

Check out our most recent LookBooks, "Inflatable Textures" Vol1 & 2.

Each LookBook is free to download and features a variety of inflatable shapes that make use of our inflatable texturing process. You're sure to get some inspiration for your next project. The projects in our LookBooks are only a small sample of the different textures we're able to replicate, the sky is the limit!
