Fast, Friendly Customer Service.

Our self-adhesive vinyl lettering will stick to almost any smooth surface. It comes pre-spaced and is easy to install. We use an advanced computer cut system as the final step in our production process. This allows measuring to the edges of the backing paper for easy placement before installing your new lettering. Without this step, the lettering would be trimmed manually with a straight edge. We're so confident that you'll be able to install our lettering yourself, that we'll send you a free replacement if you have any problems during application.

Renamed my small keelboat.
Daniel, Saskatchewan, Canada

Product came within scheduled date and super easy to use instructions. We surprised my dad and renamed my Small Keelboat after his Mother. He was surprised and a bit choked up. The exact reaction we were looking for. Great overal transaction.

I used it to display the name of my boat.
Michelle, Grand Junction, CO

I had to have it redone. The first one had gaps between the Burgundy, main color and the Black Shadow. Being that the sign is on a White background, it was quite noticeable. The second one has a few gaps as well, but I was able to touch it up with a Sharpie, Ultra Fine permanent Marker. Even with the flaws, it looks beautiful.

Boat name
Susan, Glen Ellyn, IL

Very user friendly website. Quick shipping. Awesome communication and DIY instructions. We've recommended to several people.

Boat Name
John Taylor, Madison, NJ

Very easy website to navigate and all you really need is to know what size the space is for the lettering. From there, you can make the adjustments. The adhesive was straight forward to apply - just make sure to measure accurately and have a second set of eyes to confirm the centering and levelness. Also - be sure to be VERY careful smoothing the letters - I went from the center of each letter individually and it seemed to work well. The air bubbles are tough to get out.
