Made shield decals in illustrator... if anyone wants the art I will email... Going to tackle the classic MC and S&S decals next. They can be any color...you'll just need the colors changed if you have someone make custom decals.

I would like them please. I need something to put on the back of my boat in the black. Can you do a red/black or grey color combo for me to see as I dont have the means to do it myself.

Love seeing people sporting the sheild. IMO looks realy nice compared to the stock graphics.

Mike,
Is first original graphic and second your illustrator version? Just a heads up that the vector MasterCraft logo you (and a lot of folks ) used is wrong. Look at the 'st' combination on original then on the one you did, for example. Maybe that won't bug you if it's small, but at any size it will look bad, IMHO. I ordered 42" logo w/o checking closely, they based off that same logo and it just didn't look right. (Domed Images then did a new 42" with one that does look right). Jut a heads up, before you spend money going to print.

If that graphic could come in a chrome "bubble" format like some of the registration numbers it would be off the charts. I think it would look very good on the red on the side of the X-2.

Both are illustrator versions I drew. I like the straight sided on better...but I work for a vinyl printer manufacturer as well as a vinyl cutter manufacturer...so I make stuff all the time for kicks...the originals are 5x5 - so yeah I agree you always need to check over and graphic when it gets over 12 x 12. I'm just a hack at illustrator...

it would be cool, but dont think it would conform to the hull lines. The OEM X2 logo is sectioned to do so........

I wonder what it would look like 1/2 in the red and 1/2 in the black. Otherwise I thing you also need a little something centered in the red.

They better have a Mutoh printer... or I know the decals will fail... :D

I work for Mutoh....Lol....www.mutoh.com and of course we make the best vinyl printers and cutters.... :D

Another idea would be to put a large sheild slightly tilted, placed directly over the black/red transition in a contrasting color to red and black. This will break up the vertical transition. Also think about increasing the size of the sheild so that it goes over the rub rail. I dont have my photoshop on this computer as I am out in the boonies on site. This is what I did to my Xstar wrap that is currently being produced. The muted grey sheild is right over the vertical black to white transition - like what you have.

I just made generic art - gonna tweak a little to make the cutting easier...

yea they actually turned out great. The BAS in the "x9" turned out fantastic and has alot of detail. Was completely shocked. BTW for anyone doing their own install I tried something new and used an edge painter to remove bubbles & excess windex. WORKED LIKE A CHARM. Has alil softness to not damage anything and actually soaks up most of the windex

I'm looking got the drip molded Mastercraft shield black and chrome for my cup holder. I think it would be a nice touch for the middle of the vent.

Waterskis.com has a 5" for like $35-$40. That is ridiculous. Is there anywhere else to find one?
