Text Required
Type in boat name, port or registration number you require.
 
Font Type
Select a font that goes with the name of your boat.
For registration numbers select a bold legible style – be aware of MSB requirements.
 
Slant
Modify the font by slanting it.
 
Shadow
Modify the font by adding a shadow or outline.
A shadow is not suitable for Caslon Openface. If you would like the face of this font filled in with another colour, please let us know in the “tell us” section at the end of the form. Refer name demo for example of Caslon Openface with infill.
Note our preview demonstrates a drop shadow, however we will supply a block shadow as per the shadows shown in the gallery examples. i.e. Shadow is fully connected to letters and numbers.
 
Arc
If you would like your boat name arced, select No Slant and request an Arc in the “tell us” section at the end of the form, making sure you have completed the area dimensions section. Refer to our Gallery – Sail – Scarlet and Lahaina, for examples of arced designs. Note: slant and arc do not work together.
 
Colour
Our colour range caters specifically to boating styles and fashions.
Should you require a colour outside of our standard range, let us know via the comments section at the end of this form. We have a range of specialised vinyl including woodgrain, reflective, etc.
Knowing that colour representation can vary from computer to computer, we provide 2 cross-references (Pantone Matching System and Marine Paint Colours – Awlgrip & International). Please take this variance into consideration when selecting your colour.
 
Quantity
Insert the number of this design you require.
 
Size
Lettering can be made in a variety of sizes. Minimum height 12mm to maximum height 575mm.
When selecting the size of your lettering, consider not only the space available, but also the overall look of the vessel and the lettering and vessel being in balance.
When selecting letter size, the height you indicate will be applied to the uppercase or tallest letter including shadow.
When using lowercase, be aware of those letters that fall below the line e.g. g & p and the impact this may have on placement of the name onto your boat.
