Custom Boat Lettering Terms:

Custom Boat Lettering work includes the chance to see what you’re getting, virtually on your boat before we produce it. This level of service commands best practices by real artists who love boats. Registration numbers and hailing port are included at no extra charge.

You send in your photo and name and we do the rest!



$250 Design Deposit covers one to eight iterations of virtual previews. Typically, we start with four and narrow down the choices approaching the eighth iteration. $100 for the next eight ideas. 1st drafts are posted to your page shortly after receipt of your payment. Your personal web page includes your name 66 ways, then our best efforts to create an outstanding logo given your requirements. Please check our schedule as it varies seasonally for the creative part of this custom graphics process.

Balance due will be based on the size of the final graphic and the materials we use. A graphic that uses real gold leaf will be more expensive than silver, then digital prints, then cut vinyl in that order. Installation, if that is an option also varies on a case by case, please inquire.

Payment is due after you choose your favorite idea which covers Production, Shipping/Handling of your boat’s graphics. We replace graphics damaged during shipping if the damage prevents a normal installation. If you mess up during install we will replace at a discount. A photo of the damage emailed in advance of your return package will expedite production. We archive original art forever for your next boat.
