    Vinyl Stripes

    Anyone know a good, and reasonably priced, provider of vinyl stripes and N-numbers?? I'd like to get a set made to similar to what I have now, but unfortunately the fellow that did mine sold his business to a conglomerate that isn't interested in doing such a thing.

    I've used Aircraft Engravers (http://engravers.net) for my placards and N-number. Dunno if they do stripes.

    Just about any sign shop or wrap shop can create the stripes for you. Pretty straight order. I've even just taken hand-sketched "ideas" to some shops and they created the artwork (for a [minimal] cost) for me.

    You may call Van's Aircraft and ask who they use for their aircraft....

    On one of the airplanes I sold the new owner purchased his N numbers from a graphics company he found on the web doing a search. He used a two part number meaning the numbers all had two parts to them. So lets say your N number is 1234 he received two 1's and two 2 and two 3's get the idea. The first set was in the standard black with the second set in a reflective material. He put these together with the reflective part shadowing the black numbers. At night or in low light and you hit these with a light these numbers glowed. Even the white star is reflective on the decals.

    I posted a video of this airplane with these decals he installed. Here is that video for those whom missed it. He spent under 200 bucks for all these decals and his Numbers. The numbers are hard to see but you can see the other decals he put on this airplane.

    Do some searching and you will find something like this also.

    I just applied new graphics on one of my planes a couple of months ago. I used Dennis at AvGrafix http://www.avgrafix.com/. Quality job, economical price, and he knows his business. http://www.jeffsplanes.com/KR/2013-2/2013-KR.jpg
