Default Family crest on garage floor coating?

We are painting a garage floor with BM Aliphatic, Ploymide and the owner wants to know if we can paint like his family crest onto the floor. I am not sure as we have never been asked nor did any thing like that. What product will bond to the floor base coat and not get ruined by the clear coat?

That is what I was thinking. Maybe vinyl stencil that you can apply and then clear over?

We have done floors at Yale University, The Taft School, Sacred Heart and Fairfield University for sports teams with school logos. The system was 100% Solids, a vinyl logo, then P74 Aliphatic Urethane Clear topcoat. We were concerned at first that the Urethane would attack the vinyl adhesive, however we had no issue and completed several floors with 100% success. Also did a residential basketball court with a family crest on the floor with MCU P78 Clear Moisture Cured Urethane. A breed the crest but didn't attack it.

^ This is it. This Is one of the services I offer. As well . I also do vinyl graphics on walls where the outside edge blends with the wall color. So it appears you got mad artistic skills but its a sticker . Use these in grocery stores and businesses as an upsell...

Where do you get a family crest from? Or is it like only for peeps that have "the second" or "the third" behind their name?

I am assuming these are wood floors? We need it for a concrete garage floor. I am conserned vinyal will not stick all that well but I am not sure. We talked to him about it he may just have a real artist come do it as I have no art skills. I can not just takea t aope all works out well, he is paying top dollar for this and it has to come out 100% perfect.

I do not know where or how to find a family crest. I always thought it was just a rich person thing, since I am poor I don't think I could afford one or have one lol.

I think it depends on your heritage. I don't think all heritages were into them. I am Scottish decent so there is a family crest. What is your heritage?

Google your last name and family crest and see if any come up.

lots of good advice, the only thing I have to add is to answer "who has a family crest"

Also being of Scottish decent, we use the MacPherson's crest (some deadbeat Archibald social climbed into that clan). This is just one variation:



other variations include the above emblem and this shield like design:



such as this:




when my parents went to the UK many decades ago, they brought back all sorts of MacPherson trinkets and tartans
