on line lettering

Looking on line for boat name lettering. Any suggestions on what to look for? Any particular sites give very good quality or bad quality?
I'm looking at "myboatsign.com'. They have a good online design system. But if anyone has a better suggestion, I'd love to hear it.
The local shop was 3 to 4 times more expensive...and rude. Screw him!

I just added the name on my 27 ft Hunter. See if you can find a loacal banner maker in your area. You can pick form a 100 fonts, colors, sizes. The letters are vinal and come on a backing systgem that makes the application easy.

There is a few different grades of vinyl besure to ask about that. I found a guy a couple of towns away that was not only cheaper, but dropped it off at my house.

I know Boat US offers the service online and says you will have delivery fast. They even have a online video showing how to apply the lettering. I havent used them but they usually stand behind their products. Hope it helps.

Ditto BoatUS lettering. I used them for my last two boats. Excellent service and easy installation.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!
