How are the logos installed in the ice?
There are several different methods used to install logos onto the ice surface. One way is to use a special type of paint and apply it with a paint brush. In this case, a template similar to a stencil may be used to outline the logo and then color in the various parts. Another method of installing a logo is to use canvas or other fabrics with the design already on and apply it to the ice. These logos are usually put onto the ice when it is 1/4" or 1/2" thick and slowly the logo is covered with a fine mist. Then the remainder of the ice is installed up to the desired 1" thickness.
