Aircraft Lettering FAQ

  • Which vinyl type should I select for aircraft lettering?

    Premium 3M Vinyl is the thinnest (and best) vinyl that we sell and is recommended for lettering on airplanes and other aircraft.

    The Standard Calendared Vinyl works great for hobby projects but is a little thicker (about 3 mils vs about 2 mils for the Premium).

  • How much does the lettering cost?

    If you design the lettering online, the price is shown on the Purchase tab and updates with every change you make to the design. The price shown is for 1 copy of what shown in the on screen preview. If you need 2 or more copies of the lettering you can specify how many you need on the Purchase tab as well. If you have a graphic, logo, or need a custom lettering layout you can submit a quote request on the graphics page.

  • How soon can I get the custom vinyl lettering?

    Orders designed online are produced and shipped within one business day. If you select UPS/FedEx shipping, orders placed before 1:00pm EST ship the same day.

    Custom requests usually take 2-5 days to produce.
