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.

Harry, Warwick, RI

I followed the installation directions and it was a breeze. Since my transom is not quite flat, I cut between some of the letters, as suggested, in order to have more manageable sections.

Design and ordering process was very easy. Customer service through chat feature was super fast and answered specific questions about my order right away. Lettering was high quality and easy to apply.

We used it for our boat!!
Ann Graham, Seattle, WA

So happy with our purchase. Just what I expected, fast delivery, on time. Easy to use website. Easy to apply . Will definitely recommend to our friends!!!

Vicki, Brooklyn Park, MN

Bought lettering for our pontoon boat. Named our boat "Last One!" as this is the last boat we will purchase, (hopefully)! Lettering turned out great!

Boat name
Jennison, Newbury, Massachusetts

The name looks great! It is on a small boat. We reordered the hail as it was too big and was still too big. Jessie was extremely patient with my questions and very nice with my reorder. Very fast delivery! We have already referred DIY several times and will redo the big boat name next year!

Boat name
Val Vechnyak, Metuchen, NJ

All good. Will see how it stands the sun.

This was for a logo to go on the back of our boat which looks great.

Customer service was great and the turn around time was excellent.

For my boat

Part of the lettering was ripped before applying was a bummer but I manage to make it work, easy to install

Boat
Brewer family, Ellendale, DE

Thanks for a great product

Boat name & numbers.
Satisfied in Canada

Installation was very easy. One caution: you have to be very careful with any fine, thin pieces which tend to stick to the top covering as you peel it off and don't adhere well to the boat surface. I had to use an xacto knife to peel the thin ends of my lettering off the paper and then they didn't stick well to the boat. For normal lettering or numbers this is not an issue, they peel and adhere fine.

I named my boat after my late wife.
Jeff, Port St John, FL

The salt water has not affected the sticker. And the 3M product is holding up in the Florida sun.

Boat name on company boat.
Johnson’s Crabs, Newport, NJ, USA

We ordered our boat name for our company boat! We put it on and had it sit a week before placing in the water....the one letter ripped off. This company sent out another sticker the day I called to replace it! It was very nice of them to do that! We will definitely use them for all of our custom vinyl needs! Thanks again!

We used do it yourself lettering for our boat. It was great, easy, convenient. I really like that you can choose your own custom colors. It almost looks like it came from the manufacturer with our name on it.
