Showcased above is a very traditional imprint for fire department sunglasses. We used a red frame sunglass for the base and black ink for the imprint. The shield portion of the logo is solid black and is "in front" of the message. The message text used is Copperplate Gothic font. The standard for this particular font is all-caps with the initial cap a bit larger than the characters which follow.
Maltese Cross design logo
Who would have thought the derivation of the cross used for so many fire department logos would be controversial? The discussion extends through centuries, tracing to the year 1100. The "Knights of Malta" or the Knights of St John were banded for hundreds of years and fought during the Crusades and many, many other battles throughout the centuries. History reveals the Knights wore an 8-pointed cross as part of their uniforms. There is additional discussion that a similar cross is known as the St Florian Cross. How did any of this become connected to fire departments. Historic thought is these warriors developed skill using fire as a weapon against their enemies. In any case, we do have the various shapes of firefighter crosses available for use in your firefighting imprint project for sunglasses or any of our other promotional projects.
How to incorporate the Cross design
Whenever we are consulted as to how to design a imprint on our sunglasses, we always stick to the idea that less is more. Our sunglasses have a relatively small area to use for imprint, it is 2-inches long by about a quarter of an inch high. When incorporating a Maltese Cross or Shield symbol on to the imprinted sunglasses project, we will place the cross to the left of the text as well as to the right of the text and let the customer decide which one is the better balance for the look you are trying to achieve.
Number of colors to print in the logo
We offer imprint services that will use up to two colors in the logo. The use of a second color in the logo does increase the price. Customers might consider the use of alternate color sunglass frames instead of the expense of a second color of the logo. Would it be too bold to suggest using pink sunglasses with a black firefighter logo design? It might be somewhat unthinkable but the New York Yankees broke away from their always-Navy-blue policy decades ago and saw a surge in sales!
