How do you approach boat wraps differently than a vehicle wrap? Are there special considerations?
There are a lot of things to consider when applying a vinyl boat wrap. Ultimately, though, we approach boat wraps the same as vehicles — it’s always attention to detail and nuances that go with each object we’re wrapping. With a boat wrap, we must pay special attention to the location of the water line is, and consider how the boat and the wrap will be viewed in the water.
What challenges did you overcome?
When doing a boat wrap design, we are always challenged by the rear of the boat. There can be multiple motors, platforms, or any number of things to get in the way. It takes time, care, and attention to every small detail to ensure the wrap will perform well over time.
In this particular design there is a subtle carbon fiber design that incorporates the entire design. From further back it is not apparent but up close it really adds to the designs effect.
What was the best part of this particular vinyl boat wrap project?
