Custom Painting

Changing colors

This 1959 Chevy pickup show up and the customer says he needs to get rid of the blue lettering, “it needs to be a different color”. He hates the blue and wants all the colors to be on the warm side. Oh ya and make sure to match the “aged” lettering technique that the other sign painter used. This truck is from Colorado and that’s were the lettering was done originally, Not by me. But now it’s my responsibility for fixing the issue with the wrong color choice. So I says “sure thing!” Here’s a set of photos to show the steps I took. I was able to removed the blue lettering completely before re-lettering the “custom machining” in brown. Fun job! And quick!

Boat Registration Numbers

If you’re registering your new or used boat and need to have new registration numbers put on the bow along with the new registration stickers you now have an alternative to vinyl! Get paint! I can hand letter your new numbers and it’ll look a hell of a lot better than some cheap vinyl stickers that lacks character and any thought for placement, color and spacing. I use an oil based pinstripe/lettering enamel used in the sign painting industry for ages which holds up well to heat,cold,sun,water and will age with your boat and can also be touched up if need be without complete removal unlike vinyl lettering. Here’s a couple of pictures from a recent job featuring a script I enjoy using.
