Has anyone purchased any or had any made?

If so, please let me know.

Thanks!

If by tribal you mean the ones below, then the answer is NO, I have tried several times and even got an electronic copy of them from Caravelle in a small format (8 1/2" x 11") but I have not found any originals, or anyone reproducing them and the original vendor is not interested in making a run of new ones even for a bulk purchase.

I have not had any luck in finding a sign shop that can recreate them off the original one while still on the hull and the electronic file I got is not enough to reproduce the decal, everyone I spoke to want the file for the full size graphic with the "meta data"

If you have any luck please keep us posted, I'll even buy 2 sets if it helps to get a deal somewhere. (Red and Black decal for Red and White hull)

Good Luck!

Your going to have to find a place that does boat wraps and decals, and give them that picture and they can make you a set. They only want the full size image so they can just print it. But an experienced shop can draw up a set just like the originals with a picture.

The "meta" file will allow the printing company to print it out at any size you want and you will still have good crisp lines. The meta file will contain the vector format and when you enlarge the picture to full size you won't get the jagged edge you would with a regular jpeg file. Some printing companies can take the jpeg file and redraw it as a vector format.

Good luck.

Some printing companies, where you would get business cards or letterhead, can take the existing "jpeg" file and redo it with Adobe Illustrator as a vector file. They would simply trace it. I needed this done on a logo just a couple of weeks ago and one of the local shops was going to do it for $30. Not sure it that is good price or not because I did not shop around. Just tell them what you need and if they do it they will understand. Some sign companies may also do it.

Does anyone have a better pic or better quality image than the one posted earlier?

Any particular one/color? I have that package on 4Play (Red on White) and I could take pictures if that will work but she is napping in the garage now so they would be fairly close up (small building).
Not sure if that is any benefit.
Certainly not a meta file.

Thanks 4Play, but I can take the pics myself if needed.
