Recommended Suppliers of Vinyl Boat Name Letterings?

Can anyone recommend a company that supplies vinyl boat name lettering?

Seems to be a lot of them about on the web but I was wondering whether anyone has used a particular company and got good/quick service from them.

You can't complain, they are a registered charity after all.

I think they ceased (charity) trading last night.

I am able to do most stuff if its just a name you are probably talking in pennies rather than pounds. Let me know what you are after.

Whats the best way to get the stuff off when it's been on there a few years.
Warm /hot air gun a blade and a bit of TLC or is there another way.
Mine is stuck like S... to a blanket

Signs

Yes Hot air gun and just right temperature , too cold wont shift it too hot & you leave glue on . Wash off after with Brake Cleaner or Acetone depending on surface !! Oh and patience !!

Good morning Bob.....

I didnt know you did vinyls!

Ive used lighter fluid and a bit of tissue paper in the past , seems to do the trick without damaging anything.

Also in the olden days when times were tough Id use some of my fathers 4 star, so Im assuming unleaded works.

This is my first post so please excuse anything that looks unusual

I've found that using a kettle of boiling water is much more reliable than a hot air gun as there's no danger of overheating the adhesive. Works a treat!
