A great example for boat lettering on a center console. I think you can do one or the other, but not both. This also shows a boat with a light blue hull color. With any off white hull color you have to think about contrast. Also how the color might be affected when printing on a clear. We solve that by knocking out with an opaque white layer first, then run the sheet back and print color over that. This is much nicer than printing on white if you like those soft shadows, but seeing is believing.
