Water proof Stickers

Anyone know of a company who do custom water proof stickers?
Only need small ones for switches, having the MMSI number by the radio etc.

I've got a Dymo tape machine, John. I use the plastic tape for outdoors, the paper tape doesn't last long at all. The biggest deterioration will be that the sun bleaches out the black font. I've got my MMSI in this tape and it's now coming up a year old. The font has faded very slightly but it's no big deal. Got some on the apartment entry system too...they've been there over three years and they're still fine but they don't get the sun.

If you let me have your MMSI and whatever else you want...I'll print them off and send them you in exchange for that Garmin cover you sent me

try to get hold of the RNLI Sea Safety booklet. They have a set of stickers in, one of which is for the radio and has a space for ; name of boat, callsign and mmsi no.

Most good chandlers have them and your local RNLI should have some.

Leapy. I'll take you up on that mate. Can you do me one that says 'Clitoris' and do they glow in the dark?

Thanks Steve, but I've already had them. Lasted about 2 weeks.
