Source of lettering for boat names

I am looking for a source of lettering for putting a name on my boat. I finally, after 4 years, found a name I like (I was calling it driftwood, but never liked it enough to paint it one the boat). New name will be Jann's Patience (Jann would be my wife).

Rather than paint it on, or use unattractive block letters, I'd like a nice script font. And I'd prefer to be able to order it, peel and stick it on. Any one have a good source?

thegammas,

Go to oneof the search sites on the web and search for "Vinyl letting for boats" quite a few to chose from.

I had some made for my sailboat and if I remember right I ordered them through Boat US website at the time. It was a script lettering about 12" in height for the Caps and around 6" for the lower case. Was very easy to install and has lasted for many years with minimal fade, if any. They had many fonts and vinyl colors to pick from.

Good Luck,

Phill

You might want to check with any custom sign shop or truck lettering shop. Ours locally specializes in boat numbers and names. They have alot of different styles and sizes to pick from. I had the numbers made there two years ago and they still look like new. They are vinyl and they were already lined up on a backing paper. I just pealed off the backing in one piece, put it on the boat, then pealed off the front paper and it looks great. I am going to get they name put on this spring.
