For people who have flown often, or even once or twice, the first thing you see is the design of the individual airport terminal.
From the terminal to the boarding tunnel, to the inside of the airplane, the airline’s logo is clearly imprinted on everything.
Even the blankets you request during your flight, have the airline’s logo imprinted in the corner. Most airlines have different colors or color combinations to make them stand out from the rest of the airlines: It may be the way the colors are combined to make designs or just the name. The way the cabin is designed and even the seat material itself, is all a part of that airline so they can maintain their individuality. I often wondered how the airlines did this, and some of it has to do with print set-up at the factory. There are design companies that specialize in 3D printing. 3D printing is mostly for the configuration of the cabin, and the backs of the seats. There are printers made just to imprint the designs and logo for the different airlines. These printing machines can range from 42 inch width up to as much as 77 inch width of printing space. The next time you go into an airport, look at the different materials used in their design. Know that someone is operating an industrial printing machine that is designing every piece of carpeting and cloth that goes into that design. Each of these printers and companies are FAA approved and held up to standards that provide for the comfort and safety of those who ride in the airplanes.
