Some of you have posted in the past where you bought your custom boat name decals. For the life of me I cannot find those posts. Can someone help with that?

@Julian I didn't see this on your reference page but it might be something good to add.

Thanks!

On my last boat I went through http://vinylimagination.com/ for my registration number, but I assume lettering is good too.

This boat I am leaning towards 3dlettering.com

Also take a look at pwcgraphics.com. I have bought several graphics kits from them and they offer customized hull numbers as well.

I used boatletteringforyou.com ... If you google boat lettering you will find several that do it.

Googled and found this one http://www.doityourselflettering.com/

I remember seeing this one before. Anyone have any experience with them? The interface is very user friendly and displays the image with each update.

I may run by my local Fastsigns as well.

Thanks for the replies.

All of my graphics are from doityourselflettering.com. I did have a problem with the large rear graphic (evil spray sunscreen melted the black right off it). They sent me a brand new one with some sort of protective coating on it for free. Great customer service. I'd also ask for the "protective coating". Also, spray sunscreen is the devil. I do not allow it on my boat anymore. Regular sunscreen is pretty bad too, though necessary ... I have my passengers slather it on ~30 minutes prior to boarding, with minor touch-ups allowed on the boat only as needed.

3d lettering did great work for me.

Quality, reasonably priced and fast shipping.

I used 3dlettering.com for registration numbers they are great. You get both sides on a pre-alligned sticky sheet for $40. The letters are 3D and look cool.

@leeatmg has used http://www.boatletteringtoyou.com/

Many people use local shops to do it.

One guy used decalcity.com

I can't recall who I used....was too long ago! I'll add this to the FAQ
I did use them, but had forgotten who. Nice job and great service. I chose them because they had a font that was somewhat close to the High Output lettering and I wanted to try and match it.

This is a GREAT store. Used them several times.

Also. this store offers the BEST ORDER SYSTEM available. You get to see EXACTLY what your finished product looks like, including the overall length, in the vinyl color you choose, and in the font you request. The website is DA BOMB !

I still use this website to design my lettering, even tho a close friend of mine makes all of mine for us.
Please keep in mind, what you pay for, costs ABOUT 20 cents to make. After you own the Vinyl cutter system, this is almost like 95% PURE PROFIT.
So best to not get carried away. One of my very bestest buds owns 2 machines, so I get everything for free now.

Best Wishes to everyone .......... And hoping your UPCOMING WEEKEND is better than my fishing luck (or serious LACK THEREOF) recently @

So I did end up ordering through http://www.doityourselflettering.com/

Ordered Wed evening around 11pm and had a shipping notification around 10am the next day. Very pleased with the site and with the processing speed. I chose the cheapest shipping method (free :) ) so I will most likely receive next week. There is the outside chance I will get tomorrow though.

I chose to go with the Premium 3M grade cast vinyl...which is there medium grade. I will let you know about the quality of the product once I receive them and post pics when the job is complete.
