About The Graphics Boat

We have been making Boat Decals since 2007 when we bought our first boat - since then, The GBoat Name Designerraphics Boat has become one of the most popular places to create your boat name stickers online.  With our simple easy to use lettering designer, you can create your own design from a vast array of fancy and funky fonts!  Our Boat Stickers are suitable for Narrowboats, Yachts, Cruisers, Kayaks, Fishing Boats, Commercial Vessels, Rowing Boats, tenders and most marine applications.  If you need a name for a hypalon rib tube then Contact Us.

About the vinyl material we use

We make our boat name stickers from Premium grade marine safe vinyl which is manufactured in the UK.  As boaters ourselves, we want our decals to last.  If its cheaper elsewhere, then its probably for a reason. 

Using the Lettering Designer

Step 1 - Enter your text

Step 2, choose your letter height (See the Vinyl Letter & Height Guide).  If you choose a white boat name ythe preview wonts show it, so under the letter height drop down at the top right is a "Background Colour" selector with 5 colours.  These are for illustration only and do not affect the colour of the graphics supplied.  Imagine it being like previewing your design on the colour of your hull.

Step 3, choose your font, browse throught the various font categories by selecting the different tabs. 

Step 4 - is where you choose your name colour,  shadows and outlines.  You can also choose a combinations of shadow, outline or both. To move the shadow position, use the 8 position box on the right hand side. You can select various arch shapes, wave, bulge top and other special effects.

Please be aware that some of our fonts make the lowercase letters appear as capitals, therefore please make sure you are happy with the image in the preview display BEFORE ordering as the graphics will be sent as per the image.

Custom Designs or your own artwork

If you need help with a more complicated or custom design or a custom font then please get in touch.  If you have an EPS, PDF or other vector file then we may be able to use this.  We can also pre-layout and space your decals on two lines  (subject to approval)

Can I have a boat name made to a specific size not listed on the site?

If I order two boat names, do you reverse one for the opposite side?

We get asked this a lot, you don't reverse text, unless you are able to read backwards!  Only the effect if you order say a Wave-Top effect, or shapes and flourishes.

Narrowboat Name Stickers

Do 2 colour graphics (shadowed) come in two layers? I've heard they can be hard to fit?

Unlike most companies, we pre-layer our graphics so you do not have to struggle to align two or more layers.

I have just painted my Boat - how long before I can fit them?

We recommend waiting a minimum of 30 days for the paint to cure fully prior to installing vinyl graphics.

How long will my boat name last?

Our Vinyl Boat Lettering / Cut vinyl graphics are supplied in Premium Grade 7 Year vinyl. We do not use Monomeric or other Low-Grade vinyls.  Other factors that affect lifespan are UV exposure and the quality of the installation, cleaning the area of all wax and contaminents prior to fitting is crucial.

Do I get instructions on how to fit my vinyl boat name?

We send out instructions with all of our products, if you are missing yours, drop us an email

How long does it take to get my graphics?

We despatch orders on average, within 2-5 working days, but this may extend during busy periods.  Please bear in mind you will need to add 'postage' time onto this.  If your order is urgent, let us know and we will try to help.
