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.

David & Lora, Table Rock Lake, USA

Too nice to put on my old boat! The registration lettering went on easily, and looks perfect. We also purchased a name set for the boat, but we decided it looks too good to put on the boat until we paint it! Super fast production and shipping.

I actually bought two sets. The first set didn’t flow well with the boat so we had to remove it. The premium reflective vinyl was a real pain to get off. Amazing glue! The second set was cut and weeded just as well as the first. The colors were spot on and they are extremely reflective. I will be choosing for my next decals. Quality cuts, quality vinyl, fast shipping.

Shore Runner Top notch quality lettering! Was the simplest addition I've made to my boat by far! Super easy!!

Jared, Los Angeles

Ordered two different letterings, one for each side of boat...... paid extra since they were not two identical lettering. Was shipped two identical letterings, contacted them and was sent a third of the same lettering..... 3 of the same and none of the 2nd. After trying two times I have no choice but to take my loss and walk away completely unsatisfied with my experience and purchase

My boat.
Michael Caldwell, Horizon City, Texas

Came out just as I wanted it to.

I used it for my boat name.
Bill Bruno, Rock Hill, SC/Lake Norman-Cornelius, NC

The letters were great and looked fantastic when done. I screwed up one letter and DIY very kindly sent me a replacement. Unfortunately about 6 months after the install, another boat collided with my boat causing damage to my fiberglass. In the process of repairing the glass the buffing caused damage to my letters and I am now replacing them again. Note to all: If you buff and wax over the letters the colors will pull and damage easily. Use caution and possibly clear coat over them to prevent damage.

Boat ID numbers.
Thomas Dasch, Hagerstown, MD

I am not the smartest man and ordered only 1 side of boat lettering. Shawn Grecian, a customer service rep, emailed me directly and said "Hey, I noticed you only ordered one side of boat lettering, normally you need 2 for both sides of the boat, so I threw that in for you". ABSOLUTELY amazing customer service. I would have gladly paid for the other set but he threw it in for free. Concerning the quality of the decals - excellent! Directions were very easy to follow and the results came out perfect.

Boat registration numbers
Bill McCully. Indiana

Excellent results. Thanks!
