Tiki Bar Signs Made in Florida, U.S.A.

Boat Name Guy also creates custom made Tiki Bar Signs. The one’s you see mostly in A1AFlorida in a local bar along the A1A highway. Each one is created with a real aluminum grade substrate. The same ones you will spot in your own home town.

Each sign is custom made with rounded corners and holes to hang in your own themed man cave oroutside bar. Custom signs from A1A to Jimmy Buffett.

The A1A sign can be remembered by the long stretch of highway the starts at the Fernandina Beach, just south of Georgia on Amelia Island.  The north-south Florida State Road that runs mostly along the Atlantic Ocean, with sections from Key West at the southern tip of FloridaA1A or A-1-A is the fifth studio album by American popular music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett and the third major label album in Buffett’s Don Gant-produced “Key West phase.”JIMMY-BUFFETT-Sign

Boat Names in Pinellas County

Boat Name Guy Has You Covered In Pinellas County, Florida

B.N.G. has always admired the Pinellas County area as one of the largest boat community’s in the world.  An area like this needed a dedicated boat name designer that is NOT also busy with other lines of work in the sign industry.  With so many sign companies saying they will get back to you, but never do… Websites that claim they have a large design team crew that always comes up short on their design ideas.

Not to mention the websites that offer the customer to design it themselves with a limited resource of fonts and graphics. With the hundreds of marinas, lagoons and boat sale showrooms there had to be someone that a boat owner could rely on.

Boat Name Guy can help you as soon as you are ready to make a name for your boat. With the easy Boat Identity Form you can have a response quickly and affordable. No job is too small, whether it is a dingy in Largo or a 63’ Yacht in Tarpon Springs. B.N.G will be there to help you!

How a Dogs Name “Stew Canoe” was Turned into a Boat Name

Caricature of Dog Used for Boat Name

I really enjoyed working with John and his dog “Stew Canoe”. John said he wanted to put his dog’s caricature on his boat. And call it the Stew Canoe. His dog took over Stew-Canoeeverything. Cute little dog, unless you got close to him. Then the growling started.Stew-Canoe-Caricature

John supplied me with a photo to go by so I could draw Stew. I started with some light pencil outlines and then re drew the drawing in pen and ink. After I had the drawing approved I went to my scanner to scan the caricature. I needed to digitize the drawing so I could get vectored art lines so I can make detailed changes. I need vector art work to do most of my boat names.

Next the proof was sent to John and his wife for the final proofing.

The next day the Boat Name Guy had the graphics installed.

Contact the boat Name Guy for a free consultation. He will come out to your boat and brainstorm some ideas with you. Will take precise measurements and photographs to help with the proofing process. He will continue the momentum till your boat name is installed.

 

Buzz Mobile, The Perfect Boat Name on sixty foot Yacht

Buzz Mobile Boat Name Shows A Bit of Owners Business Logo

A Large 63 foot yacht was just purchased and the owner of this beauty called me to get the ball rolling on some design ideas. The owner and I made an appointment to meet at the boat. I got there a little earlier to get on top of the photographs and measurements that I would need later to create proofs for the owner to see the boat name on his yacht before I go to print. After meeting with Paul the owner, I felt more confident on what exactly he was looking for. Paul wanted me to incorporate his bee hive that was in his work logo. It is a well known marking with all that he does at Blue Hive. With some other things he mentioned was a certain bumblebee that he won out of a toy crane at an amusement park had to be part of the theme to.

This is another look of a proof from the Boat Name Guy

Paul and I agreed on my estimate. A small deposit and a hand shake I went to work. Paul had to leave for thirty days out of town but he wanted me to have the name up before he got back. I went right to work to show him several proofs. I laid it all out to show exactly how it would look.

 

Buzz-Mobile-Proof

This was not on the boat yet. This was what a proof looks like.

I sent Paul about 7 proofs before he choose the one he wanted. He was concerned withBuzz-Time-Color my proofs that the color of the hive would be too much. So I sent him a photograph of how the two colors complimented each other.

He trusted my judgment and told me to go to print.

I started putting all the graphics together at the studio. After cutting each set of colors, I put them together as one boat name decal. I placed the yellow over the black shadow and then applied the transfer paper. All my graphics were ready for install. I left for the boat at 6am to beat the Florida heat. Also because graphics do not like the heast either. They are much harder to work with when hot.

I laid all the graphics out with tape before I applied any graphics to make sure they all

have the exact placement I showed on the proofs. I then take a step back to make sure all is correct one more time. And also to take this photo!

I continued with the install now that I know that the boat name is correct.

 

Paul was very happy with the end product. He is now asking me to continue his boat name identity by having personalized flags, cups, cozies, Marine Identity cards and Buzz Mobile graphics on the coolers and storage bins at the dock.
