    Any recommended sites for viynl lettering-gctid355841

    Well I finally have a name for the boat...

    Ninkasi -- The ancient Sumerian matron goddess of the intoxicating beverage, beer.

    I really like the way it rolls off the tongue, and the back story as well....Now anyone have a shop they like working with to get letters cut? I did a cursory google search and most of the sites I ran across didn't impress me. Any guidelines for how large I might want to get them printed up. I'm going to be doing the aft of the hull on both sides, as I have a dingy sitting on the transom.

    Thanks

      I believe BOATUS has a service associated with them for getting the lettering done.

      I went thru the phone book here in Orlando, and found a place who does that. They said to do it in your computer and bring them a print. They will match it.

      He also gave suggestions as to size and placement.

      It came out very close to what I drew.

      See if you can find a local place for this. It won't cost that much more, and you can go back if it isn''t right.

        I used Speedy Signs You can create your own design, font, color, etc. They send it to you and you apply it. I was very peased with how it turned out.

          Call ShadowGraphics In Indy (Speedway, In.) ask for Darren. These guys are really good. They do most of all the major race car teams based in the Midwest. They even do the custom trailer wraps for the race car haulers.

          When I had race cars they done all of my work.

                  We went with a highly recommended local vendor.

                  http://www.manta.com/c/mxcpll0/bolton-signs-graphx

                  I was very particular on what I wanted and how it I wanted it to look. He did a great job on the design and putting it on the boat.

                  A local person wants to make it right, you are floating advertising for them.
                  Yep, my 4588 Bayliner IS my happy place :whistle:
