There are so many reasons to incorporate an image on a table. You may need to show a logo/brand on a communal table or restaurant tables. You may need an ADA emblem to mark which tables are compliant. You may have custom artwork that matches other pieces of the project. Your bar tables may need an update. Whatever the reason, there are options for each situation. We want to guide you through these options to not only make the process easier next time you place an order but maybe mention some options that you may not have considered.
There is the Print Option. This option allows you a bit more creative freedom than some of the other options. With Print, you can choose not only color but a pattern. With print, you can also create shadowing effects to allow for your image to look old, worn, dimensional or even burned. This option works great on veneer tables as well as solid wood tables.
Another option is Paint. Paint allows you to choose the color and influence the mood, and also include metallic colors like silver, gold and copper. You can determine how saturated you want the paint – do you want the wood grain to show through the paint or have it completely saturated to where no wood grain shows through? You can scuff the paint to again create the old or distressed look. This application also works well for both the veneer tables as well as solid wood tables.
A more expensive, but always beautiful, choice is the Carved/Routed Option. Your image/ logo etc would be carved with a CNC router onto the actual table. We would work with the other specifications of the table to make this route as shallow as necessary to avoid a “crumb catcher” situation. This could be as simple as ADA lettering or more elaborate – like your logo. This option works best with solid wood tables, but can also be done on other styles.
