Free Logos for Custom Upholstery Projects

Published by Naseem Muaddi on May 16th, 2012

Auto trimmers that incorporate emblems and logos into their custom work need to check out Brands of the World – a great online resource for vector graphics that are free and easy to download.

Unlike JPEG graphics, which are of poor quality, vectors are comprised of paths as opposed to pixels. This allows them to be scaled from small to as large as your project requires without affecting image quality. In other words, no more having to work with blurry, pixilated images.

Brands of the World offers nearly every logo imaginable in vector format. Just search for the vector graphic you need, size it accordingly, print it, cut it and use it as a template.

If your project requires a graphic that’s too large for your printer, just save the file on a memory stick and take it to Staples. Their print department can blow it up to any size you need.

The possibilities are endless. You could cut the logo out of ¼” cell foam and incorporate it in panels or headliners for an embossed look. You could even size the logo small for a stitched design on motorcycle seats. What’s more, vector graphics work great for embroidery machine software.

So stop struggling with pixilated JPEG images and print a vector for your next custom project.

    I need a late 60s early 70s style “McCurdys Upholstery” logo for a shirt.

    I would like to do a log, possibly with two different colours of vinyl. Any suggestions ? I was thinking it would require overlaying the main colour by cutting out the logo and then glueing and top stitching, ideas ?

    Layer the 2 colors with the main on top & the secondary underneath.
    1/8″ or 1/4″ foam can be added underneath both.
    Lay out the design, & top stitch about 1/16″ away from the logo lines, on the outer edges of the logo. Make sure to put a little nip with scissors in the areas to be cut out. That way there’s no chance of cutting into that secondary material
    Then cut the top material out of the logo to expose that secondary. Cut that main material about 1/16″ away from the stitching on the original lines of the logo.

    Forgot to mention…After cutting out the top side to expose the secondary color, flip over & cut that secondary color away from under the main color where it’s not required, so that you basically end up with a single layer of material.
