Boat Registration Decals

10 posts in this topic

I'm in the process of changing registration from a boat I bought in ND. It'll likely need new registration decals. Would be nice to have something that matches the current paint job. Where to go to find a good selection at the right price?

Online is easy enough, but a set for both sides plus shipping is around $30. Not confident on 100% color match either.

Joel dealers have them but they are much more than $ 30.00

Try Cabelas etc. they might have a better price.

I don't understand too why they are so expensive confused.gif

One really needs to shop around to find a decal designer that will do it for a little less. We have worked with numerous different companies for the race car and some have just as good of quality but a less spendy price. One also has to remember that usually the less expensive decals are on much cheaper printe paper. The good ones will stay on the vechile and not wash off with a pressure washer.

I dont know of any shop that will color match to your boat and then make two for $30.00. Good ones will run closer to $50.00 or more.I personally have not found them for less but they could be out there.

I do know that the place we have do our decals is much less expensive than most others and still uses good quality paper and does a great job.

I have a friend who wanted decals to match the custom color on his Ranger. He ordered decals online. He ordered them clear, with two shades of color on the boarder of each letter/number. The boarder essentially creates enough color that is different from the hull to make the letters/numbers very visible, but they match the hull (since it is the hull showing through. The boarder colors he chose were black and silver which are trim colors on the boat. Yes, they were $25+ shipping, but look great.

I ordered mine online as well through Lettertech You can choose your style and outline, and get it matched pretty well.

Decent prices too for the most part

I recently had the registration numbers put on my new boat by a local decal shop here in Alexandria. $30.00 installed, I took my boat by on a Tuesday and picked the color and font then went back on Thursday and he installed in less then 5 minutes.

They do this quite often and new all the requirements as far as size, spacing & location.

I would think you would have a local shop in your area that would do this.

As previously said don’t be cheap on your lettering it looks very nice when done correctly.

I have a black and silver boat, I bought decals that weren't too expensive ($15.95 from a dealer) that I thought were a pretty good match. They are from Hardline Products. I put them on myself, so basically I had sixteen bucks and some change into them after sales tax.

They are black and silver, I think the reflection from the flash and metallic flake in the decal makes them look a little more white than silver in the picture.

Although for $30, like S.D. Ice Angular talked about, that sounds like a pretty good price.

How about having a guy that does pinstriping. I had that done and a few more exrta lines and accents on the boat, motor and trailer and cost me $50. HTB

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
