Let us know what you discover out.Posted by Don Coplen (Member # 127) ~ above December 12, 2012 07:49 PM: Here"s one idea I gained from your initial post. What about blocking out the light over the table through a reverse? of the logo, so the the logo is projected onto the center of the table with light instead of paint? LED lights?Posted through Si Allen (Member # 420) ~ above December 12, 2012 07:57 PM: Jacson ... Start with a frisket and also sweegee under hard.Cover whatever to stop overspray gaining on the felt or wood.Mist on a couple of dry coats so as no to le it wick the end under the frisket.Spray ~ above a final coat.Carefully peel off the frisket.Posted by Sam Staffan (Member # 4552) ~ above December 12, 2012 10:51 PM: airbrush to get a nice logo design with a fine amount of paintPosted by Dennis Kiernan (Member # 12202) ~ above December 12, 2012 11:46 PM: phone call the male he will never ever look cool, especially if the puts a logo design on the felt. Whether it"s painted top top or projected, it will certainly interfere v play. Best yet, he shd provide the table to someone who wd understand what to perform with it, and just obtain himself a larger TV display for the room.Posted by invoice Davidson (Member # 531) on December 13, 2012 06:04 AM: I"m with one of the above, airbrush water based tee shirt printing ink. Ns think it could be set with an ordinary clothes iron. Simply a thought. If it"s irradiate on dark, tiny coats to carry the color up. Course the huge job will certainly be was standing the table ~ above it"s end!!!!Posted by invoice Modzel (Member # 22) ~ above December 13, 2012 07:33 AM: Boy, an excellent luck on eco-friendly felt. We offered to screen print thousands of assorted, Army, wait Force and ROTC logos ~ above 16" white felt that were than dice cut and sewn to flags. Us didn"t usage plastisol t-shirt ink together they didn"t want the plastic look and also feel ~ above the felt.Even going immediately from the push through the gas dryer, we still had drop in of the color. It was acceptable though. The thing was, even where there were trapped overprinted colors, the felt didn"t "seal" well and also the second color to be a bit brighter but not noticeably. If I"d go another direction and also digitally print something like PhoTex and also apply that of he"s not concerned about the ball action on the felt. It would look an excellent and although you can pull if off easily, ns don"t think it would curl increase by itself.Posted by Sal Cabrera (Member # 1236) ~ above December 13, 2012 09:03 AM: what ns would perform is clean the surface make sure is no dust on in ~ , cut an synopsis paint mask the the logo and live the area wherein the logo design is goin come be and cover the remainder to prevent for overspray, once you have place the mask ns will usage my airbrush and also airbruch two coats that Trasparent Extender (CREATEX) climate I will certainly came earlier with an Iron v a center sitting no to hot and iron over the Extender to seal the Felt, now because the felt I"m suspect is eco-friendly you may going to should airbrush one or 2 coats the white shade over the extender (createx) , girlfriend may obtain a way with one yet you will check out as you along carry out not go to hefty on tha repaint or friend will obtain some glowing spots and also you don"t desire that, by currently you will have actually a pretty smooth surface to work-related for you logo once you have actually done this you deserve to start through a frisket and also sweegee down difficult .I hope this helps .If you have any question you have the right to e-mail or call me.Posted through Checkers (Member # 63) ~ above December 13, 2012 09:24 AM: To carry out it right, you must use dye sublimation. Otherwise there will certainly be a various texture whereby the paint/ink is laid.The critical time i checked right into it, there to be a dye-sub printing agency in England the specializes in published billiard table felt. However, that was a couple of years earlier and more vendors space coming virtual in the USA...http://www.poolfelt.com/custom_designs_pool_table_felt.htmlhttp://www.pimpmytable.net/I have the right to not say anything pro or con about these suppliers though.Havin" fun,CheckersPosted through Ken Henry (Member # 598) ~ above December 13, 2012 09:35 AM: Another possible alternative that could be precious investigating would certainly be utilizing a thermal transfer for textiles. Siser make these generally for t-shirt transfers, but they also offer masking products for both hot and cold applications. They have a website at :Siserna.comThey also provide a contact phone number on your webpage wherein you can speak to them for your awnsers to inquiries such together this one.Posted through Ricardo Davila (Member # 3854) on December 13, 2012 05:41 PM: Jackson, but you put repaint on it, you space going to finish up damaging ( for the video game ) the structure of the felt and that will impact the trajectory that the balls and, consequently, the game......The game, on that table will never ever be the same.....Obviously this male is no a real pool player.So, ns am inclined to agree v this component of what Dennis wrote:"Best yet, the shd offer the table come someone who wd know what to do with it, and just acquire himself a larger TV display screen for the room."On the various other hand, if the doesn"t care around the game, perhaps an MDO cut out of his logo, screwed on to the center of table, would look yes, really cool.

Uneven bright on the table will perform it, such together bright in the middle and shadow toward the rails.Posted by Sonny Franks (Member # 588) top top December 14, 2012 01:00 AM: Dennis, friend obviously hang the end in fancier swimming pool halls than the rest of united state - I"m happy if there"s chalk....Posted by Don Hulsey (Member # 128) top top December 14, 2012 08:37 AM: Chalk??? Hell I"m happy if i can find a directly stick.Posted by FranCisco Vargas (Member # 145) on December 14, 2012 11:11 AM: "I think" you could practically treat this like you would paint on umbrella awning. Likewise what Sal said...cut a mask either making use of your plotter but prior to you heat it up and also place it on the table, spray some "Sprayway 82c Mist adhesive" top top the earlier of the vinyl, let it tack increase a minute or 2 then lay it down and also squeegee. I would use some type of towel spray ink. Sounds choose a good an obstacle though. However the best way would be to go to a swimming pool supply and also get a sample that felt and practice. It would certainly be messed as much as make a mistake on a pool table...Posted by Tim Barrow (Member # 576) on December 14, 2012 11:21 AM: assuming the is a quality table v slate under the felt I would be cautious about the maybe of paint or octopus seeping thru the felt and also ruining the table altogether so new felt will still no repair any kind of damages excellent by this insane request,.,.I favor Dennis" advice around giving the table to who with enough sense to usage it properlyPosted by jack wills (Member # 521) top top December 14, 2012 12:01 PM: i would probably start through sandblast mask and also a clear spray to start with and also then airbrush white end that and also go v colors as soon as that dries...Posted by Ricardo Davila (Member # 3854) top top December 14, 2012 01:14 PM: Jackson,If,after having read the opinion that the "usmam.org swimming pool Sharks", mainly two or three of us, you still desire to please her customer v this project, i think it would aid you to discover out who does the black Jack and Roulette table tops for the casinos......Whoever is act those, appears to recognize something ns don"t.....Here is a attach that might aid you to begin your search:http://www.buypokerdirect.com/tables2.htmlRDPosted by Ricardo Davila (Member # 3854) ~ above December 14, 2012 01:15 PM: < December 14, 2012, 01:16 PM: blog post edited by: Ricardo Davila >Posted through Dennis Kiernan (Member # 12202) ~ above December 14, 2012 06:26 PM: How around a logo printed ~ above glossy record and put on with thumb tacks?Posted by Cal Trauter (Member # 10938) on December 14, 2012 06:44 PM: I would certainly airbrush the requested logo design with 1shot paint. It has actually worked great on t-shirts, sweat shirts etc.. I would also try to perform this before the felt installation so it can be washed. An excellent luck and let"s check out a photo as soon as done.Posted through goddinfla (Member # 1502) on December 14, 2012 07:06 PM: Why not forgo the logo design on the table and have a lamp above with the logo design internally lit. Same effect, not messing increase the table.Posted by Jackson Smart (Member # 187) on December 15, 2012 04:13 PM: thanks to anyone for their input. Ns am quiet researching this. I have a friend that is a screenprinter...so she is looking into this also. I know it have the right to be done yet he wants to put the feel on first and then execute the logo. If ns take this on...I will take pictures and submit them for her viewing pleasure. I favor the lamp idea likewise as I argued this to him yet he desires something ~ above the feltOn a next note...I am also concerned around the use of the table with a distracting logo on the felt. I am a significant pool player, have actually done numerous tournaments and placed in the money number of times....so ns can"t recognize why he would certainly think this is acceptable. Dunno!Oh well....I will keep you posted.Thanks again and also have a happy holiday.JacksonPosted through Ricardo Davila (Member # 3854) on December 15, 2012 05:45 PM: great luck and happy holidays!RD < December 15, 2012, 05:45 PM: message edited by: Ricardo Davila >Posted through Don Coplen (Member # 127) ~ above December 15, 2012 09:40 PM: I choose Dennis Goddard"s idea.

(Member # 187) top top December 17, 2012 03:57 PM: Update:After lot research into this idea of putting a logo design on the table felt...I recommend the client that, in my opinion, it would be a bad idea. There are, however, a couple of locations that do this kind of thing (dye-sublimation) that Checkers mentioned. One is "Pimp mine Table" (clever name) the will perform it however it needs to be off the table. He obtained in a hurry and had the felt installed so that will remove that part. I argued the light idea...nope...not interested in that. Therefore i argued a hand painted authorize for the inside of his "man cave".
