    Registration numbers on 2013 black and orange ski

    I bought a 2013 GTR 215 and am going to do registration numbers my brother in law works at a sign shop and will do them for me just looking for some pictures and maybe the fonts you guys used. Thinking of orange silver and white maybe for colors. Figure i'd like to do it right and make them look good and like the belong on the ski. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Why not just do solid orange? It will probably look the cleanest. Thats what I'm doing on mine. All you need to do is get a good quality vinyl lettering/numbers, Isoprpyl alcohol to wipe the surface before application, and and a rubber squeegee to get rid of air bubbles as you lay it on the gel coat.

    Not orange, but you get the idea.

    Congrats on the new GTR. Here's mine. I found it on dafont.com. Give that site a look. Tons and tons of free fonts. This is the font I used. http://www.dafont.com/ethnocentric.font

    Also check out this thread for some more pics of custom numbers.

    Another thing I did when I was deciding the font/color for my numbers is on dafont.com you can type in a custom word/letters/numbers and see what it looks like in that specific font. Then I took a screen shot and loaded it into photoshop and did different color/outline variations on a black background and found the one I liked best.

    That does look great. I bet that was fun perfectly centering the second set of decals. The first set I ordered from a place on Ebay came like that and I shipped them right back and then had the member here, CCW do mine and I had him specifically do mine printed as one decal...I was not even gonna try to apply the second set of decals perfectly. lol

    Brad...if your brother in law owns a graphics/sign shop he should have no problem doing 2 or 3 color decal printing.

    Yeah he works at a company called signs now. He can do multiple colors that is why I wanted to see some pictures so I can just give him my numbers and a sample of what I want. Just want to see what others have done and how it looks on the black and orange seadoo.
