I made this as a special order:
       Cedar box measures 9”x 7” x 2.25”.  Inlay the  name in the normal way but applied the logo on top of  the box using a method I used to decorate boxes before I learned to do inlay. 
       I printed this image onto tissue paper that I had attached to regular printer paper.  Printed this on my inkjet printer.  When the tissue, with the image on it, is laid on  the box I wipe on thinned poly and most of the tissue paper “disappears”  The tissue paper covers the whole lid, edge to edge.  
     It is a fussy procedure and works better with smaller images.  Easier to get wrinkles out of smaller pieces.  Three coats of wipe on poly.

Yes, I will have to give this a try on some shop boxes, maybe get the hang of it.
