I searched and all the threads are 3 years old or more. I have a graphic drawn up for my boat, done by an artist friend. I need someplace that can make the artwork into a properly sized decal for the sides of my pilot house. Any suggestions?

get a pdf made at a print shop and than take it to staples or office depot to be made into a decal. or you can find a shop that does custom advertising wraps and have them do it.

lets see the art work

Just had a graphic done for mine. I sent a digital file to Fat Head, The company that advertises the full size sports figures .
They can make you what they call an auto decal. Measure your spot on the boat and specify the size that fits your boat best.
Mine came out great.

Just look up a local sign shop. Don't mess with kinkos or any of that crap. They use cheap material that isn't made to stand up in a marine environment.

Google coho designs. Guy is based in Oregon by I am sure he could mail you the logo and have you apply it.

He did mine and did an excellent job.

Just a follow up. The company I used was called carstickers.com. They were very responsive, helpful, and worked hard to get the decals right. Decals are very high quality. I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them. Very nice people.

What did they say about the decal standing up to the marine environment? Sun/Saltwater?

Thanks.

It was an additional charge for a heavyduty vinyl but they assured me that it was made for the marine environment. Came out really nice. Ill add a photo later
