Any local sign shop will cut and prepare the letters for you and probably save some monies as there is not a captin or a boat attached to the shop which always seems to drive the price up

I have never put lettering on a boat but though it would not be too hard if it came in one piece already spaced out.

If your needs are fairly generic, this is now an online commodity product. I just received lettering from doityourselflettering.com and price, font and colour selection, ease of online design, shipping, etc, was all excellent.

Unfortunately, local designers can't compete unless your lettering is large or quite graphic. Price for local shops was double to triple......

Installation is another story. If you can't do it yourself, the local shop is the best option.

Thumbs down Re: Boat Lettering

I used Cap'n John's Boat Lettering to print and apply large logos on two of my yachts in the past. I will never use him again. He does not stand behind his 8 year guarantee. After 18 months, the top clear layer of the vinyl logo started to stretch away from the color layer of the vinyl in a 1"x8" area where there is a crease in the fiberglass. Mr. Groom never came to see the problem. Instead he relied on one photograph I sent him to tell me the problem was from a buffer. I told him a buffer was never used around the logo. After I pressed the issue further, he said he sent the photo to the manufacturer of the vinyl. He said they said the problem was from using harsh chemicals. (I only use West Marine Pure Oceans Citrus Boat Cleaner). I asked Mr. Grooms for the name of the Manufacturer of the vinyl so I could verify that claim. He would not provide me with their name. All calls and email for Mr. Grooms to come physically see the problem in person have gone unanswered. IMHO, the problem was with the application in that particular area of the crease since no other areas had the stretching (it has since broken completely). Buyer beware. Cap'n John's Boat Lettering aka boatlettering.net and myboatname.com does not stand behind his work, nor his word.
