    Default Suggestion for Boat letering

    Just boat a boat and need to change the name on the boat. Can anyone suggest a local person that will take off the old name and put on a new name. Thanks

    Any local sign or graphics shop can do it. I usually used 21st century on Babcock Blvd in the north hills. However when doing this there is a high chance of seeing the old name in the gel coat. Also its thought to be bad luck to change the name of a boat without taking the proper procedures

    Boat lettering is very expensive if you hire someone to do it. I'd get a scraper, some Goof Off, and go to DIYlettering.com. Nice shadow options and the most reasonable prices. A large field of letters might get a little tricky but a smaller field should be manageable. Buy the rubber scraper for a buck to help flatten the letters.

    First, don't remove the old name yourself. BAD LUCK. Second, I just had Team Nutz do my boat name and they charged a dollar an inch, which I thought was very reasonable.

    If you want to go to Wexford, Flinner Signs and Decals is my go-to. He letters our wreckers at work and does a lot of dirt car wraps and lettering. His work is good and lasts, just not the cheapest.

    I've had bad experiences with Team Nutz on multipule family vechiles with remote starters (and a horrible attempt at a switch and bait on my wifes truck once). Their decals mat be better but they will never get a penny or a good word from me. 21st Century used to be decent but used to also try to claim everyone elses work as their own. The previous owner of my boat used GPSA in Millvale to make the registration numbers which are fine/have held up fine. I forget how much it was (just remember the name on the reciept stack i was given with it)
