Boat and Marina Signs

The important thing to remember about boat signage is that any sign near water is going to take a lot more beating from the sun than normal signs.

Traditionally boats were lettered by hand with lead based paints that held up very well, nowadays there aren't that many artists around capable of lettering boats well, but with the advent of computer generated graphics it iss no longer a problem.

The best grade of vinyl available (high performance) does a good job and lasts well.

What sometimes can be a problem is the advent of digital printing; many sign companies are using digital prints for everything. The vast majority of digital printers produce a product that will last no more than 2-3 years in bright sunshine. Even when they are laminated, 4-5 years is how long you can expect on a sign in full sun away from the water to last; it may not last as long as you want it to. Classic Signs can create your boat sign and ship it to you with easy instructions on how to install it yourself, or we can arrange to have it professionally installed locally.

Marina Signs

Just like boat signs. marina signs if near water need to be High Performance Vinyl and not digital prints. For the entrance sign and the directional signage within the marina some form of dimensional signage is always good for making the subtle statement that this is a well maintained, professional marina and doesn't come over as flashy in any way.

Our molded and cast HDU or polyester signblanks are perfect for this job. We have a generic range of redwood looking signblanks that cover the vast majority of sign demands; or if you would like we can always create a custom mold for you complete with your logo.

Featured Sign of the Month

Uwharrie Point Country Club Main Entrance

This PVC Monument Sign is approx 8ft high by 14ft. wide and was originally made from Redwood. After approx 25 years it had rotted. The board of the residents association were very keen to keep the original appearance exactly the same as the original but they wanted it to be from a material that wouldn't rot.  We had access to  the original architects drawings, so we set about converting the plans into a computer file engineered to be made from PVC and aluminum but to look exactly like the original. Every piece of coving and molding was made in house, and then assembled into three pieces which were transported to the site where it was assembled. The whole monument sign was painted with six coats of a high quality Benjamin Moore latex paint ( it lasts longer on PVC than paints costing over $100 .00/gall more. Then apart from the center panel all of the monument was painted once more by brush and as it was drying the brushes were dragged carefully along the length of each section creating a wood grain effect; thus removing any appearance of the sign looking plastic.
