Many sign companies say that they can wrap anything, but when you call them up, their claims don’t hold water. Well, at Specialty Graphic Solutions, we don’t claim that we can wrap everything, but we do have experience creating graphics for a variety of motor vehicles and appliances. Big Game Fishing wanted vinyl boat graphics in Hammond, Oregon, so they contacted SGS to find out if our skills are sea-worthy. Big Game Fishing Is More than a Game Located on 5th Avenue in Hammond, Oregon, Big Game Fishing is the business of fishing guide Jim Fowler. Jim runs guided fishing and crabbing trips near Buoy 10, a famous spot where the mighty Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. He has been fishing the Columbia since he was a teenager riding his bike to the banks to cast a line. These days, he enjoys sharing his love of the river with his clients. When someone who’s as passionate about the Pacific Northwest as we are came to us for vinyl boat graphics for fishing guide businesses in Hammond, Oregon, we couldn’t wait to tackle the job. Thousands of anglers are typically out fishing at the famous spot where Jim takes his clients. This is especially true when the salmon are ready to start their migration up the river to spawning grounds. Jim felt like he was missing out on a great marketing and branding opportunity since he had nothing but his registration numbers on his boat. So, he contacted a couple other sign companies about his graphics ideas, but they weren’t up for the job. It takes a special sign shop to work on boats. Fortunately, SGS is pretty special.

Charles Silver realized that he could harness the power and style of vinyl graphics for his project, so he contacted the Specialty Graphic Solutions for vinyl graphics for custom built boats in Vancouver, WA. Who Built This Beautiful Boat? In all likelihood, you’ve already skipped ahead to take in the pictures of this gorgeous boat. Let us tell you about it. This craft was built from a kit by Charles Silver of Vancouver. It was a labor of love that took several classes and plenty of training to get the details just right. He then gave it the fitting moniker of “Silver Belle.” He now considers himself a Journeyman boat builder rather than an Apprentice since a “Journeyman has figured out how to fix his mistakes.” When an individual brings his pride and joy to us for vinyl graphics for custom built boats in Vancouver, WA, we’re delighted to help out! Charles wanted vinyl lettering to display the name of the boat. We wanted to make sure we got it just right, so we had him come in to look at our vinyl color swatches. Once he found what he wanted, we got right down to work. The Belle of the Ball Charles has a great eye for detail. He chose metallic silver vinyl for the main letters with a dark blue accent for the shadowing on the right of the letters.
