We’ve all noticed the vinyl graphics that are on cars. Most of them are promoting one company or another. Vehicle graphics are an effective way to catch eyes and get your message across. However, it’s rare that you see individuals with these custom graphics. And, it’s even rarer to see them on boats! 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. To get technical, we used Oracal 751 Cast vinyl: Silver Metallic and Dark Blue, to match the blue of his waterline mark on the hull. Our mighty sign makers cut the two types of vinyl and hand-layered them. Charles brought the boat to our headquarters, and Taylor carefully installed the lettering.
In the end, Charles was completely satisfied with the job we did. He was proud to show it off at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend last month, where he first launched his boat. Bon Voyage, Charles!
