Boat Name Length

What’s Next? The next thing you need to consider is the length of the Boat Name.

When thinking about a boat name idea keep in mind the number of characters and or numbers your boat name has in total. This is very important. A boat name such as “Moor Often Than Knot” at let’s say 1 meter in length will have a smaller overall height compared to the name Ella Louise which would be higher in height.  So both boat names would be 1 meter in length but the Moor Often than Not will not be as high as Ella Louise due to the number of letters. The more letters in a boat’s name and the narrower it becomes in height.

Let’s take a look at a boat name example below. For this example, we are using the boat names Sayler and License to Chill.

We sell our boat stickers by the length and we do this for 2 reasons.

  1. Value for money. You know exactly how long your stickers are going to be without any hidden surprises.
  2. In the majority of cases, boats have more than 300mm height span for boat name sticker placements.

Both boats names both 600mm in length with a proportional height. As you can see both have different heights. So whether this is something for you to consider is entirely up to you.

On the odd occasion, we may manipulate the height if we think the proportional height is a bit too narrow. This way your boat name should look good and be ready to install when you receive it.

Boat Name Thickness Consideration

The next step is choosing the right font that also suits the style of your boat.

The first thing to consider when choosing a font is the font thickness. This is important because this determines the thickness of your boat lettering. It’s best to choose a font that is a little thicker than thinner.

Let’s take a look at an example below with the boat name Emma Louise.

The top example has a thin style font and the bottom one is bolder and thicker. This means when your stickers are made since the bottom example is thicker you are going to have more vinyl for a boat name compared to the top example.

The bottom example will be harder to damage or scratch off.

Design Questions and Answers

What color should I use for a Boat Name?

This is a personal choice. If your boat surface is white then if you use the opposite color like a Black or Dark Blue these will stand out. If you don’t want your name to stand out you can use a grey or a metallic silver over a white surface.

What color should I use for a Boat Rego?

Your boat regos need to be visible. So only for a white-colored boat its best to use a dark color like black or dark blue and so on.

What’s a Good font choice?

Fonts 1 and 2 are popular.

Material Types

We offer 2 types of materials. Depending on where you are in the world these have different ratings due to the UV being higher in some countries compared to countries in Europe for example. We offer you 2. One is what we call a standard vinyl which is a high-grade polymeric vinyl.

The other is our premium 3m vinyl choice which is in our opinion the best. The material also offers initial high tack adhesion.
