Some of our most frequently asked
questions concern what DIY Boat Name Kits will look like when they get to
their new owner. Will there be a background color? Do I have to
align the different colors I ordered myself? Is the name going to
arrive in one peace or individual letters?
To answer those questions, we will
quickly run you through the process of how DIY Boat Name Kits are made.
We start of by cutting out each color
individually and removing the negative space. You are always left
without a background color.
In the designing program on our website
you do get the question to choose a background color, but this it
strictly for ease of designing and so you can get an idea of what
your graphic would look like on the color of your hull. It would be
next to impossible to match the vinyl we use for our graphic to the color of your hull. Plus, this way you don't have strange looking
edges around your fish graphics. Instead you will end up with a seamless
After that, the top layer gets
transferred onto application paper, which will hold all the lettering
together and make sure nothing gets moved around.
We then align the two layers together
and transfer them onto the same piece of transfer paper.
Depending on the amount of colours a
graphic contains, we repeat this process until you are left with one
image to be stuck on a boat.
We then separate the graphics and cut
away any excess material that would make your DIY Boat Name Kit harder to
apply, after that they are ready for shipping.
Once the DIY Boat Names Kit arrives in your
mailbox, all you have to do is to make sure you place your graphics
straight onto your boat. Tips on aligning and applying your DIY Boat
Names Kit to your hull can be found in the instructions provided in
