Review for: Boat Lettering

This was great, I wanted Navy style letters in honor of a sailor in the family. I found "machine" font here, added a shadow, a slight (3 degree) slant for flair, and very reasonable express shipping on Sunday afternoon. Boi-oi-oing, in the mailbox Thursday, on the boat Friday evening. I haven't done this before, instructions were very clear, it was easy to get great results. I like that the order is per one, the cost of two is in line with other sites for one pair, and with free shipping. If you want your slant to lean the same way (fore/aft) on both sides, order one left, back up and change the slant to right and order one of those. Do the same on the shadow, I neglected switching the shadow, it still looks great. I did put 2 spaces between groups of letters to get 2 inch spaces, per Nebraska Regs. Layout carefully- they're sticky- follow the clear instructions, I measured off a stripe and cut between groups of letters (adapted idea from the instructions). This allowed keeping them an even height above the stripe along the curve of the bow. Measured back from the wood platform on the bow (just measure back from a point common to both sides) to get them the same distance aft from the bow. I couldn't be happier with the result.
