Unexpected places for graphics and decals

Completed Houseboat Graphics

The natural place for vehicle graphics and vehicle wraps is… vehicles! But what happens when you take a graphic that is traditionally used in one form and apply it to something a little unexpected?

Our owner, Andy Selcho, did just that with some very special graphics for his houseboat. Andy and his family have a passion for boating and playing at Lake Powell. They regularly spend time there and have all kinds of fun making memories with family. It also doesn’t hurt that there is some forced disconnection with no cell service out on the Lake! It just goes to show you that with some creativity – and with the experts at AlphaGraphics Sandy by your side – you can create nearly anything you can imagine!

Graphics everywhere – get creative!

Creative use of vehicle graphics – and any other creative endeavor – starts with an idea. When you’re looking to change things up in your business or your home office, a great question to start with is, “What if…?”. Chances are that what you want to do has been thought of and designed for, or could be done, with materials that are already available. And if your exact idea hasn't been done, something similar probably has.

Modern printing and materials make an ever-expanding array of options within easy reach. One of the great things about modern vinyl graphics and decals is that they are designed to go on nearly any surface. So, whether you want to deck out your houseboat, your conference room wall, or your sidewalk, there’s likely a material that will work for your purposes.

Important things to consider

When you’re working through the planning phases of your project, there will be a lot of things you’ll want to consider. Here are just some of the things that you may want to think through as you work on the various phases of your project planning.

  • Where are the graphics going? Is the surface flat or textured? What materials will stick to the surface?

  • How long do you expect the graphics to last? Are they for a campaign or a permanent business fixture?

  • What should your design look like? Are there any moving elements that need to be accounted for in the design? Does it look good from all angles?

  • What pieces are you comfortable with doing on your own? What do you need help with?

  • What is the message you want to send? Is this for customers, staff or family? Is your text easy to read? Is your design easily seen and understood?

These are just a handf
