<moved from Stupid questions 101>

This one's quite well debated.

Have a look here for some ideas.

As for the Yammy, ask Fast Fred-but it sounds like yours is pretty quick anyway.

Two options really:

Flexo or banner vinyl stuck onto the tubes. Or, get a cheap low quality vinyl stencil made up, stick it on, and paint the design on with hypalon (or pvc) paint.

We've just had some stickers done - they've been made for the job and not terribly cheap, but I think they'll last!

Sorry about the cropped one - it's taken from the bigger picture!

I've found that vinyl tends not to do too well on hypalon, as hypalon stretches a bit and the vinyl doesn't. The decals will either bunch up, or crack. Either way leads to peeling.

If you want to do it permanently, spend the money and have the thing done in die-cut hypalon, and glue it on as you would a patch.

As a caveat to my reply (above) I will clarify that the vinyl stickers I was referring to were off-the-shelf pre-packaged self-adhesive vinyl lettering.

I have no experience with custom vinyl graphics (primarily due to the experience with the OTS vinyl lettering.)

YMMV.
