Beachcomber B-15 Decal

Hi. I'm restoring a Beachcomber B-15, and wanting to get new decals made. the problem is mine are damaged. What I need is a few good images to work with in photoshop. If you have good decals on your unit could you please take a few high quality pictures and upload them on this thread please. Im sure there are other people needing this as well.

progress. the decal will be approx. 19.75 x 4.75in. It needs a little more work but i think it will be useable.

Nice. IF you would prefer working with an actual font for 'Beachcomber' and IF you need that font to have a Commercial Use License, so you can either sell the artwork or sell the decals, the font is ITC Zipper Std: https://www.linotype.com/90528/itc-zipper-family.html

Thank you. The one im working on is the actual picture of the factory decals on my trailer. I dont plan on selling anything just want the decals on mine once its done. the image you uploaded will definitely help with my project. If there is enough interest i might make the file available. i just priced it out locally. it sounds like it would be around $60 for 2 of these to be printed.

You're welcome. I see you're working in Photoshop, but have Adobe Illustrator. You'd be better off designing in AI, so you're creating vector art and not raster artwork.


Have fun!

Use a small paint brush to touch up the decals, then take a picture.

Work in what ever you are most skilled in if you just want to get the job done.

I have over 20 years experience as a graphic designer working in Photoshop and illustrator. Raster images will only be an issue with your final output if you are using too low PPI. (Or DPI as many people call it.)

The photo you start with needs to be as high resolution as possible. I spent less than 5 minutes with your original image in Photoshop.... not perfect, but improved...

Certainly if you start with vector and the correct font you will be able to replicate the decal best. Anything else will require compromise, but if it's very, very close, will anyone be able to tell?

I'd skip the paint brush and shoot a picture. You can work on the picture digitally as described above.

Beachcomber Decal Final

Well after a long cold winter up here in central Canada, I'm ready to pull the old beachcomber out from under a tarp and start working again. Here is my final copy of the beachcomber decal. Thanks for everyone's help

So Ive been getting people asking me for the decal. i dont actually have them. what you can do is open the above image in a new tab(full screen) and download it. take that file to a local vinyl shop(either a sign shop or automotive advertising shop) and ask them to make it for you.
