Yes... I still need to add that... the lines are no big deal also I want to find the right base material - I'm looking to track the right chrome type film that will accept eco-solvent ink. I can then cut out the letter and back them with a later of textured vinyl which will mimmic the effect.

the letters have a texture which I am trying to match. I have materials and can recreate with vinyl and a laminate. I am concerned with the temps that will be surrounding the decal as well as the fumes. Hydrocarbon fumes are hell on adhesive..

The new graphics MC uses is all digital ink on vinyl. If you go to a boat show or a dealer you will see a sliver of white between the graphic and the hull. I am trying mimic mylar. I just need to find the media...I know it's out there...just need to find it. This is a hobby so I don't have all in the info at my finger tips... But I will get it.
