BENEFITS AND PLACEMENT

Boat signage has many benefits. It can be used for branding, which is great for promoting a business. Boat signage can also make it easy to identify a boat in crowded areas like marinas, and give it a personalized and professional look. Boat graphics can protect a boat’s exterior from damage caused by the sun and saltwater, and can even include safety information to keep passengers informed and prepared in case of an emergency. Interiors can even be wrapped, protecting the vessel further from salt spray and its effects.

Boat graphics can be installed in various places on a boat, depending on the design and purpose of the graphics. Common locations include the sides of the boat, the transom, the bow, the cabin, the helm area, and the deck. Some boat owners also choose to install graphics on the sails or other areas of the boat. It is important to ensure that the graphics are installed in a location that does not interfere with the boat’s safety equipment or navigation lights.

Designing Boat Signage

Visibility

When designing signage for a boat, it’s important to consider several factors. The design should be easily visible from a distance, even in harsh weather conditions, and the size and placement of the graphics should be appropriate for the size and shape of the boat. Consider how the design will look when the boat is in motion.

Colour of the Boat Signage

Color and contrast should be chosen carefully to ensure they are easy to read and can be seen from a distance. The font and text size should also be legible from a distance, and the message should be clear and concise.

Branding and Materials

Incorporating branding elements can help to promote the brand, and materials should be chosen that are durable, weather-resistant, and can withstand exposure to saltwater.

Legal Requirements

It’s also essential to be aware of any legal requirements for boat signage, such as displaying registration numbers or safety information.

Overall, the signage on your boat should be clear, concise, and easy to read. It should convey the necessary information and make a strong impression on viewers. By keeping these factors in mind, you can create effective signage that meets your needs and enhances the appearance of your boat.

Applying Boat Signage

Surface Cleaning

Our application specialists ensure the boat surface is clean and free from debris before applying any signage. Any dirt or grime can affect the adhesion of the graphics causing it to fail.

Plan and Measure

Before applying the signage, we take measurements and plan out the placement and spacing of the boat graphics. This will ensure a smooth and even application.

Tools

We use good quality, proper tools such as squeegees, masking tape, and heat guns to ensure a smooth and professional-looking application.

Controlled Environment

The graphics or boat wrap is applied in a controlled environment, which is a dry and wind-free area. This is to prevent dust, dirt, or moisture from affecting the adhesion of the graphics. We always ensure that we follow the manufacturer’s instructions for applying the media, including temperature and humidity requirements.

Curing Time

We ensure that sufficient time is allowed for the graphics to cure before exposing the boat to water or harsh weather conditions.

Our qualified installers follow these best practices to ensure that the boat signage looks professional, lasts longer, and is less likely to incur any damage during application.
