Ericson Helmet Logo

All,

A while back several people expressed an interest in finding the Ericson viking helmet logo to have a sign shop cut them decals for use on their boats. I have vectorized a scan I had of the logo and the resulting EPS file can be used by any shop capable of cutting the vinyl. I am only able to upload a JPEG file here, but, I can supply the EPS to EY.com if it is useful to post, perhaps in the Specs & Docs area. If not, email me, and I can email you the file. This is no cost to anyone. There might be an issue of copyright if Pacific Seacraft owns all the Ericson names now.....Hmmm.

Is there any "magic" in the type of vinyl that should be used for boat graphics and decals? What should one ask for at the local sign shop?

Thanks

Robert,

I would just tell your sign shop that it is for a marine application. There are certain types of vinyl that are designed to work in this environment.

Cheers,

I had mentioned (many months ago) that I found the Ericson helmet logos for sale at Pacific Seacraft. Well schedules being what they are, I finally got around to installing them on my newly painted shear stripe (well, not so newly painted by the time I got them on). They're great! They do two colors, black and white. The medium size is what they recommended and they look the right scale for the stripe.

Ericson logo

Hi Mike. We are new here and I'm just trying to familiarize myself with this great site. I was going to try and hand draw the logo. How great I found you had already done all the work. I would appreciate it if you would email me the vectorized scan file to txboatlady@hotmail.com
Thanks a million.:egrin:

The .eps file appears to no longer download from the FTP server on which it was placed. Gosh, it's only been 14.5 years, what's going on around here? :)

Maybe everyone already knows this, but according to historians, vikings never wore horned helmets. Germanic priests introduced that particular headgear fashion, but it was linked to a different brand of paganism.

I believe our logo is based on the helmets of the cool vikings who are more rare than the normal population of vikings, historians don't know about them. The NFL does know about them.

So are you saying that we're a bunch of sailing Pagans? I've been called worse.:egrin:
Guess I'll keep the log on the stern of my boat.
