HomePort Lettering

Folie is no longer in Valdez. And, I want her transom to indicate this.

Can anyone suggest where to find stickon lettering?

I need to change "Valdez" to "Seward". Please see picture for approximate scale.

Number of letters is the same. If I can duplicate font, then life is good.

Thanks a lot----- Rick

Re: HomePort Lettering

Google "vinyl lettering Anchorage" and you will come up with a bunch of people who can produce and install the lettering...

Re: HomePort Lettering

The assumption is you are not USCG documented.

Re: HomePort Lettering

If you are USCG registered your hailing port on the stern must be the same as on your registration. And the letters must be at least 4" tall. I tried to match the font on mine when I changed it and came close but not exact. I even had the font name but the vinyl sign company did not have that font. They emailed me some and I picked one I liked. Easy and I was very happy. You can pick special things like shadowing, 2 colors and more.

Re: HomePort Lettering

Any sign shop can do this, also print shops.
