I was real happy with the vinyl graphics I got from Boat US. Prompt service.. easy to apply. Cheap. You can check it out on their website. To apply mine I spent a few hours monkeying around with the position. Once I decided where to put them, the application took less than an hour.

To be fair, I have a bit of a background in graphic design. I would say that this allowed me to do a better job designing/positioning than most, but this really isn't too tough...

I also used BoatUS for the graphics on my "new" boat last spring. Very happy with them.

Dozens

There are literally dozens of vinyl graphics suppliers available on the internet. Pick one. Just try to make sure that they are using the heavy weight vinyl. It is usually rated for 7 years on their web site. I put new vinyl signage on my newly painted boat in 2008 and it still looks new today.

Of course, if you are in a real hurry you can go to a local sign shop and pay more for the same thing.

Dwayne said it! Many websites offer a long list of options, such as choices among fonts, shading, reflective, borders, decorative flourishes, curves, arches and more. Most sites also will show you the appearance of the finished product. Shopping around gives you these options and competitive prices.
