Design & Price: Sailboat transom
By SignCraft Magazine
Posted on Wednesday, February 28th, 2018
In every issue, SignCraft gives a few sign makers an imaginary project. We ask them to do a sketch of the sign they might have produced, and to quote a price for the job. Most of the details are left to the designer’s imagination. The object is to see how different sign makers approach the same project. Here’s the scenario these sign makers were given:
One of your customers just bought a 26-ft. sailboat and comes to you to discuss getting the transom lettered. The transom is white fiberglass, about 6 ft. wide, and he can bring the boat to your shop for lettering. He says he wants something “classy” and sounds like he might be open to an upgrade. Make a drawing of what you might have suggested to this customer and quote a price.
