Commercial-quality gobos can be made anywhere with some easily found materials and equipment. Disregarding the initial setup costs, making gobos is less expensive than buying them. The time it takes to make a batch depends on the complexity of the design, but three hours from tracing the design to fitting the finished product into holders is average.
