Let Them Know your Name
For most people that own a boat, it is their passion. One way to show your passion for your boat is using vinyl letters or vinyl decals to display the name of your boat or ship. When you choose vinyl lettering or vinyl decals for your boat, you should try to coordinate the colors of the vinyl letters with the colors of your boat. For example, if your boat has red and grey vinyl striping on the sides of it, you would want to incorporate those colors into the vinyl lettering and vinyl decals so that they match. ( maybe red vinyl for the letters and grey vinyl for the shadow.) If there is no striping, another way might be to match the interior of the boat with your vinyl lettering.
Some people might use their boat as an advertisement for their business, in which case vinyl letters might not be enough. If you have more of a complex decal or logo, a good option might be a digital print on vinyl. A digital print is your image or design printed on vinyl so that the vinyl can be applied to a surface ( in this case a boat).The difference between a digital print vinyl letter or decals is most lettering can be cut as solid colors separately.
If you are having trouble coming up with a name that you’d like in vinyl letters on your boat, here are some ideas; use a family member’s name ( son, daughter, wife, etc.), name it after a place, hobby, occupation, or use a saying that you may like or think would be funny to be on your boat. Some sayings people like to use to vinyl letter on their boat are “Gone Fishing”, “Whatever”, Called in Sick”, well you get the idea. So show some passion, do a little “boat lettering” on your craft then “Set Sail”, “Tally Ho”, “All Aboard” and anything else that gets you away from the clock and out to sea !
