    Default Who made your boat stickers?

    Need a set of boat stickers made.
    6 letters, 6" tall and about 36" long, one color.
    Any suggestions on who does a good job at a reaonable price in the valley or anchorage.

    Sign King in the valley wants $80-....seems a bit much but I don't know for sure.
    Thanks,
    BK

    Not local, but I used www.greatlettering.com. Outstanding service, the quality is top notch, and the choices are almost infinite (not necessarily a good thing if you have ADD . . .!)

    You can see the lettering I got for the stern in the attached pic - the ID letters are perfectly matched to this for font, color, etc. I don't recall which font I used, but the letters are black with silver metallic shadow. Good luck.

    ON EDIT: Pricing is MUCH less than what you were quoted, including shipping!

    Sign King does all my banners, logo printing and boat decals. They use high quality products and create top notch work.

    Their quote seems in line with what I pay them for my work and Chad and DeLon are great to work with.

    Actioin Sign and Graphics on W. 67th near Fish and Game did mine. And they did a great job. Two tone lettering for around $90 if I remember right. And I got a lot more than 6 letters.

    Brian who ever you chose to use make sure they use top quality outdoor vinyl with the 7 + year warranty. There are several grades and thickness of vinyl. 3M and Avery brand vinyl I have put on boats lettering and full stripes I have used both and like the 3M better.

    Thanks for all the references. Sign King was actually $80- x 2 = $160-....way too much for me.
    I'll have my wife check out B original next.

    Sport Drifter, thanks for the help as always. I couldn't remember who you recommended initially thats why I made this post.

    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    We ordered from Greatlettering.com as Sierra posted originally. They arrived a couple days later and are on the boat.
    Total cost delivered came to $36-.
    Thanks for all the help.
