I am interested in this too. I would like to have my 24' enclosed done in a wrap. I just can't justify 5k to do it. It would cost less to have it painted.

That seems a bit high... most sign shops these days have digital printers and can do this type of work. You will pay more for first class design work, which can be harder to find, but the actual printing and installation is generally dropping in price.

Do some shopping around, especially in any larger cities near you where there is more competition.

Do you really like the vinyl wrap look? I've see several now and they never turn me on. No shine, difficult to see what's going on, the graphics are normally too busy for my taste.

They seem good for race boats with sponsor names that might change but pleasure boats????

Ron- I think your perception comes from all the poor design that seems to pervade the biz. No shortage of hacks in that department these days- no one understands color or has any training in graphic design or typography.

Fellers (formerly Ameriban) is a supplier only. They sell materials for wraps, software for designing wraps and offer classes for installing wraps. They do not print or design.
