Painting Name on Hypalon

Hi Guys

I want to paint the boats name on my Tender, what paint is best for staying on the Avon fabric whilst rolling up and stuffing it in a bag?

Also, I don't want to have to buy too much.

Has anyone tried normal gloss type paint on Hypalon?

Thanks

Normal paint will dry hard and crack. I have no experience with Hypalon, but have done some painting of PVC. Ink, as sign painters use for banners works well. Roll it over a stencil.
Better yet, spray paint for vinyl. Sold at auto parts stores for restoring faded vinyl seats, dashboards, etc.
Don't know how it works on hypalon, but excellent on PVC. Withstands rolling, storage, etc.

Two products from different manufacturers find a screen printer local and go begging,

Gibbon ink. Formula 1
Sericol inks polyvin gloss


Both do as you ask and will not flake of or go brital
