MasterCraft Decal on Bimini Cover

Hey guys. Getting ready to order some sunbrella material and have my bimini cover remade/replaced. I would really like to still have the MasterCraft across the middle like the original, but have never seen anything suitable. I know embroidery is definitely and option, but this appears to be an iron on decal of sorts, and I would expect that it would not get as dirty as a white embroidery. Plus getting the font correct is always a challenge.

Any thoughts?

I would think that would be silk-screened. You can get that done by most embroidery shops, but not sure how well it would hold up. Some research is probably in order.

that artwork is available in the appearance thread under decal set

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=51858 there's a bunch of illustrator files there you can use.

The artwork on your current pick is a silk screened ink...I believe from what I see.

That makes sense. If the original above was silk screen it actually held up pretty well in comparison with the faded fabric.

mikeg, thanks for the info on that piece. Now I have something to work from on this.

Not sure how well it would hold up compared to silk screening, but most sign places have a vinyl cutter and heat transfer vinyl. Makes doing a one off like this much easier. I've done a bunch of t-shirts, but nothing that was going to sit out in the sun all day long to know how well the vinyl is going to stick to the sunbrella.

The plastisol ink really holds up well...vinyl will not holdup well in the sun like that. Where are you located lawler - I am in this business and may be able to steer you in the right direction.

Thanks again man. I have a guy who can take what I have on there now and use that as a template to get a really good fit and then modify the Velcro straps to just go around the tower and not this cover. Now I know where I can get a bunch of stuff done for the future. Thanks

And I will be sure to post pictures may be a few months. Going to Vegas soon! Lol
