I am in the process of redoing some of the graphics on our 1979 Stars & Stripes. Does anyone know the font name used for the MasterCraft decal on the sides of the boat?
Thanks, Erik

Sorry, I don't know the name of the font. But here is a template (http://www.skiboathelp.com/download.html) that should help you out.

Thanks. I'm actually trying to do the Registration Numbers in the same font. Any leads are appreciated.

This guy (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4558450013&category=26455) made me some registration numbers with the early 80's font. They look good.

This guy I found on ebay is making this into a decal for me

As for the font--I would just try designing it yourself like I did--thankfully most of the letters were the same.

That picture looks like my boat. I just got a 1979 MC that is Grey with Navy stripes. I am looking for the stickers and how tos on restoring this thing back to new. Let me know how much it would cost to get those reprinted and sent to Florida. Thanks

Try this guy on ebay, his quick and the decals look great and he is pretty cheap versus other places I have been looking--I send him a template and he made me the 79 style of lettering and a couple of other things. Good luck.

Hey guys, just a word of caution with the decals and lettering, those are owned by Mastercraft and you shouldn't reproduce/sell them without the consent of MC. This was just covered on another thread on this board, and I would hate to see TMC have to deal with it twice.

Fair warning...... :)

I was contacted by mastercraft, regarding this matter, so You wont see me selling any of them. However any good decal/sign maker can reproduce them.

the unfortunate thing is mastercraft wont remake them, nor allow others to remake them so we can have access to them! :rant:

I just got my decals from a sign shop, they fit the fade lines perfect on my 79, and it makes the boat look sweet. Why MC won't either sell the old fonts or let others do it is kinda rediculous....order them off of ebay, you won't be let down

that'd be all fine and good if the manufacturer would produce them for us!

they don't want us to reproduce them, they won't reproduce them, what do we do?

Basically have them made for your use only and not for resale, but it still would be best to get your name on some kind of list at MC as having inquired, rather than being hung out to dry if you didn't.
