What is Doming?
Doming is a term for making flat labels 3-dimensional by applying a bevel of clear lens (1) onto a printed surface (2). The lens is permanently bonded with the badge, encapsulating the print and protecting it from scratching or wearing. A strong adhesive (3) adheres to the flat or even slightly bowed surfaces to keep the domed badge secured to the surface. Beveled lens is approximately 1/16" (1.5mm) thick. Finished domed badges (4) are self-adhesive and ready to be peeled off of the backing sheet (5) and applied directly to the equipment casing.
