Tube Lettering / Printing Advice

Hi Guys/Girls

We are delighted to announce that we will be receiving our 1st Junior RIBsters RIB in a few weeks and hopefully the engine will be following shortly after! Fingers crossed!!

Could anyone advise us where we could get some long-lasting signage / lettering done for our tubes? We are not-for-profit and a bit tight on cash at the moment as we are starting off so need a good price! Quite happy to have a companies logo on the tubes as well if anyone wants to help out!?

All ideas and advice welcome! Thanks in advance!

inflate tubes to normal working pressure then glue on hypalon patch for back ground and use vinyl lettering ,as you have a back ground patch that will not be expanding and contracting as much as the tube the lettering will last longer
Email me on paul@tidel.biz and i will sort out some hypalon for you

I'm going to use Graphic Innovation (boat-names.co.uk) soon as if you specify that the name is for an inflatable they will use a special material that will use a special flexi material - apparently they supply Avon with this.

Check their Boat Name selection notes
