For many years now, Boat Names customers have been able to design their own Boat Name Kit using our unique Online Design Engine, allowing them to create their Boat Name exactly how they want and at the same time save money by skipping design fees. But, what many don't know is that it is really easy to include graphics to further customize your Boat Name and that this doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. Let's talk about how to include a custom graphic in your Boat Name Kit.


Design your Boat Name as you would normally, but don't pay for your kit just yet.


Find a graphic. If you're looking for something totally unique and specially designed for you, our team of Graphic Designers is always ready to work relentlessly to make your dream Custom Boat Graphic a reality. If you're looking for a simple graphic to go with your Boat Name, like this one on our customer Brad's boat Beer Run:


You could save a tonne of money by choosing a stock image. Stock Images are copyright free images that can be purchased from stock sites for an affordable fee and can be used to spruce up pretty much anything, including your Boat Name. Popular sites to use are iStock and Shutterstock, however we recommend Dollar Photo Club as they have a large variety of very affordable images you could use to customize your Kit. Simply type in the subject of the graphic you are looking for and choose one you think would go well with your Boat Name.

Once you have selected the Graphic you want, copy the image/file ID number along with the Stock Image site you've used or simply copy the URL of the image's web page.


Return to the Online Design Engine and paste the image ID or URL in the "more info" comment box on the check out page. When it's time to select a payment method, select the Credit Card over the phone option and we'll contact you as soon as possible with the final quote on your Boat Name Kit including the graphic.

Can't find a graphic that's exactly like what you wanted. See if you can find a few images that can create the graphic you want together. Also, for most graphics, colors are easily changed. So if you see an image you like, but want to change colors to better suite your Boat Name, let us know and we'll have a look at what we can do.
