Gamer2Go is a gaming accessories startup with bold and beautiful custom graphics for controllers. We launched in March 2017 with the mission of giving gamers better designs for their gaming gear. We want to be a positive presence in the gaming world by actually listening to the fans who support us, and by consistently delivering a quality experience.
WHAT CONTROLLER ARTWORK MEANS TO US
Games let us create our own characters, outfits, weapons, and worlds. We take that need for customization outside the game and into your hands. Our custom artwork becomes a tattoo, engraved on the shell of your controller. Each theme is inspired by the games we love. Like a tattoo, its meaning and message are more than skin deep.
HOW NEW CONTROLLERS ARE CREATED
Our process begins with sketches and drawings where we design and redesign 2D concepts. These concepts will be completely rendered as 3D models for digital previews of the completed designs. The 2D images become a UV and texture map based on the surface of the plate.
Finalized designs are produced starting with a process called hydro dipping, where the graphics are printed as a film decal based on the texture map. The film is laid on the surface of water where it dissolves leaving the ink behind. The plates are precisely dipped so that the ink adheres directly to the plate. Fine details and vibrant colors are achieved through additional UV gel painting. The finished designs are polished for a soft touch finish.
The production process typically takes about 10 hours to complete. However, some of the more intricate designs can take 20 hours or more. Every controller is thoroughly assembled and tested before it leaves our doors, ensuring a quality product from beginning to end.
