Our vinyl lettering has lasted at least eight years, and looks good for another two or three at this rate. We got to pick from 2543 or so different fonts, and whatever size we liked that would fit. We opted for 10" letters so that the boats behind us would still be able to see who had beaten them. The hardest part was getting the name centered properly, because the letters (all caps, in our case) are different widths. There are plenty of sign painters in our area, but it would have cost three times what we paid. We could have done it ourselves, but would have spent five times as long.
