Miami’s Hartman Yacht Maintenance enterprise is an institution among boaters. As a mobile repair company that brings its business to your boat – rather than the other way around – these experts have found plenty of customers that appreciate the convenience as well as the highly skilled staff members who come to their locations. Among the various services provided by the crews are carpentry work, refits, oil changes, and a host of cleaning and reconditioning tasks. When this business needed boat lettering in Miami FL, its team contacted the Vibrant Sign Studio for assistance.
Lettering Expresses Your Personality
Boat lettering is an unusual means for imbuing your vessel with a distinct personality. We designed the boat’s name in script. It now reads “Lady Sigrid” with a hailing port location underneath. The name itself displays in charcoal black with a thin border. The port information presents with a standard font that is easy to read. We centered the vinyl on the back of the boat for an aesthetically pleasing display.
A Broad Range of Options
Of course, there are plenty of options open to you when commissioning your boat letters.
- Choose a font. A standard Arial font is easy to read. Bolden the letters for heightened visibility. In contrast, an old-English font looks sophisticated but does not offer superb readability from a long distance away.
- Letter height. The taller the letters, the easier they are to make out from a distance. For example, two-inch-tall letters are possible to read about 20 feet away. Go as tall as six inches, and you increase the range to 60 feet.
- Display. Do you want to show off your boat’s name with an upward or downward arc? Our client decided against this option, but it is available. By placing a light border around the letters, we add definition to the look. A shadow accent heightens the attractive nature of the presentation, but we recommend choosing either a border or a shadow unless you are willing to opt for a contrasting color.
- Vinyl. Standard vinyl is a long wearing product that handles saltwater with ease. We use a specialty bonding agent that ensures excellent adhesion. For the boater who envisions a name display that is possible to make out even after dark, we propose the use of reflective vinyl. It is a staple when outfitting emergency vessels but also available for the consumer.
Discussing Boat Graphics in Miami, FL, with the Experts
We have given you a bit of a taste with respect to the variety of options that are open to you when commissioning boat lettering. Our graphic artists gladly show you what the finished display would look like before you commit to the design. In addition, we can help you with the products needed for a hailing port designation as well as registration number numerals. These are not as open to design enhancements as the name simply because they must meet government guidelines.
