Airstream Logo in a jpg format, and the name of the blues

I own a 1988 Airstream Excella. I am getting an aluminum plate plasma cut with a flag and the Airstream logo.

What I am looking for is…
1) a logo…. The word Airstream (with the scrolly, writtten A). It would be nice if it was a .jpg. I am trying to cut out the word Airstream (from the aluminum plate) to match the same font and style as the one on the trailer.
2) the name (or number) of the two blue colors used on the trailer, so I can get a spray can mixed to match

Here's a couple.
Not sure if this is what you're referring to. Was the entire logo done in script form?

As a professional in the commercial print industry, i recommend that you get a vector image, not a jpg. Your plasma guy will thank you. Check brandsoftheworld dot com or call Airstream Marketing for the actual logo... You'll likely have to sign a release stating that you will be using it for non- commercial purposes. Good luck

Lots of people have used "Ford Blue" to restore the various plates on the TTs...

This script logo was also used on Airstream Trailers from about 1985 (our '85 25' Sovereign had it) to about 1990 (not sure the exact final year). The 1984 Airstream trailers still used a block letter logo if my memory is correct.

Thanks for the Comments and Help. I was hoping this would be easy.....

The operator of the Plasma cutter says that the A's and R's are a problem. The centers fall out when he cuts. He likes the written Airstream (that I have on my trailer) because it has lower case r's, but also it has an "e" and two holes on the A.

Some how ideas have a habit of turning into lesson.

Bridging the linework to eliminate the "holes" is easy and will look fine.

I'll give a +1 to the suggestion that vector artwork be provided to you cutter. The results will be much cleaner.

I can do this for you if you would like.

I just ran across the paint codes on the AS service site here: http://www.airstream.com/files/libra...c78db5c5de.pdf also: find a pantone book and use a swatch outside in natural light if the Centari color is not listed on the Airstream pdf... You are looking for a PMS equivalent, dont view the swatches on a monitor to select... Use the actual printed pantone book. Good luck
