Offshore Boat wrap designs?

Discussion in 'Clipart, Vehicle Templates and Digital Files' started by TopFliteGraphics, Jan 11, 2018.

  1. Does anybody know of a place to buy premade boat wrap designs/templates? I am thinking about wrapping my "new to me" 1978 Seacraft CC. I have decent design skills but I am not artist. Looking for some offshore type of designs.

    Just take a side shot of the boat and jot down some key measurements then scale to size in the program of your choice and design away?
     
  3. I am well aware of how to do the layouts in Flexi but I do not have the talent to do the illustrations like I want. I can add lettering and other elements but what i want is something like this background

    Why not hire it out to an experienced designer?

  6. Yes, that is exactly like what I want to do on my boat. Where can I buy images like that background?

    Shutterstock, Istock, 123RF are all good stock image websites.

    www.auroragraphics.net has a lot of images of fish you can use. We do a lot of boats. And most of my customers like the detailed illustrations vs photos. Just a preference

    I would also look at Bigstock much cheaper price then some other stock photo places. I would also look at getting a vector based file (Illustrator).
    That way you can enlarge to size needed without losing quality.
