The Importance Of A Sound “Foundation”

It is important to us all here, at BIU, that every branding head we produce has a sound “foundation”. In other words, our Graphics Department pays close attention to the smallest of details and, in the majority of cases, optimizes images when preparing our proofs used by our production department. The process begins with our sales department representatives who present every image to our Graphics Department team for careful evaluation to ensure it is ideal for creating branding heads with clear contours. BIU is committed to providing our customers with quality branding heads that, with optimal heat and dwell time, leave clear, defined marks.This process is a big part of what sets us apart from the competition.

Our highly skilled graphics artists are capable of optimizing the quality of virtually any image, using their comprehensive abilities. From refining existing images to digitizing an illustration, no challenge is too great for them to tackle.

Sharing Ideas

When we have ideas for improving an image and/or a layout, we are glad to suggest them to our customers. Ideas are best discussed over the phone, but exchanging e-mails or faxes can also help. After your a custom order is entered, your representative will continue to work closely with you and our graphic design department, to bring combined ideas to life. Thereafter the custom image is transformed into the proof that is optimal for producing a high quality branding head.

Free Layouts

BIU optimizes the layout of your text for your branding head(s) Free-of-Charge. This includes the placement of text using fonts from our Font Library, as well as the placement of images from our Clip Art Gallery and/or your own “ready-to-go” vector image (“ready-to-go” = suitable for computerized milling and engraving).

Branding Irons Unlimited is dedicated to preparing high quality images for all of our branding irons from the smallest and simplest to the largest and most intricate.

 

Essential Capabilities

  • Vectorization
    BIU can convert your Raster  Image to Vector  Image  suitable for computerized milling & engraving.

    This allows us to use the latest in milling and engraving technology, resulting in premium quality. Once an image is in vector format, suitable and optimized for computerized engraving, it can also be used for a variety of purposes from printing and publishing to manufacturing.

     

  • Fine-Tuning
    When images and fonts may compromise the clarity of the branded mark, the BIU Graphic Department can fine-tune letters, numbers and images to the point at which they are suitable for engraving and milling a quality branding head.
  • Vector Optimization
    From time to time BIU encounters images that are tailor-made for printing, and need to be re-tailored to accommodate computerized engraving and milling. BIU artists can take care of the necessary adjustments to make engraving possible and optimal while preserving the look of the original image.
  • Basic Restoration
    When the only image available is of low resolution or poor quality, BIU designers can restore the quality of the image.

Special Capabilities

  • Customizing Clip-Art
    BIU Designers can customize clip-art from The Clip Art Gallery to give it a unique, new look. Whether it’s assembling two or more pieces of clip art together or altering one for a custom feel, BIU can get the job done.
  • Customizing a Font
    When it comes to leaving a truly unique mark, customizing a font can give your brand an exclusive feel. BIU designers are well versed in fontography and can do everything from altering a font to converting hard copy text into a tailored font.
  • Digitizing Illustrations
    When the only image available is an illustration or hard copy, our designers can convert the image into a Vector format image.
  • Advanced Restoration
    When an image is of extremely poor quality, BIU can restore the image back to its original shape and form.
  • Removing 3D Elements
    Images containing drop shadows, and other elements that appear three-dimensional, can sometimes interfere with the quality of the branded mark. BIU graphic artists can modify or, when neccesary, remove these elements for optimization.
  • Unique Solutions
    The skills of the BIU Graphic Department are not limited to the capabilities listed above. If you have the vision, we have the know-how.
