Default Purchasing Car Numbers

Where is a good place, on-line, to purchase car numbers for a PCA DE event? I'd like something temporary, reusable, and easy to remove.

I have purchased reusable vinyl numbers from both Solotime and iZoom Graphics and have been happy with both. They feature a low tack adhesive and are usually good for about a dozen or more applications, as long as you keep the sticky side clean.

I've had excellent luck with static cling numbers the last 4 years. I got mine from www.gochecker.com

Discovery Parts sells them for $20, with a half price discount if you order more than a week prior to an event he'll be at. Considering the cost of a DE (registration, fuel, tires, brakes, etc.), an extra $10 is an afterthought.

izoomgraphics.com is where I've gotten my numbers for a while now. Ive changed #'s a couple times and Sean @ Izoom has been great to deal with.

I used Charlie @ http://twojokersgraphics.com/index.html for my vinyl numbers.

They are temporary, easy to apply, stick well on the windows, and remove cleanly (in 1 piece) and I don't have to mess with magnets and tape. Also, good visibility, and passed tech with them. Note: they are not re-usable

I bought several sets at once; it was very cost effective. Highly recommended!

Charlie is the man and our fellow RennLister. He just designed a very elegant and subtle graphic for my car's number. He also did the graphics for my 964 a couple of years ago.

Guys, thanks for the nice words. As Ron will attest, I'm swamped right now. I can easily do simple numbers as shown above but any more complicated design is months out at this point. I'd be happy to help with simple numbers, though.

really easy cheap numbers.

Go into Power Point and pick a black background with white text and type in your number, increase the size to fill up the screen and print it out.
Go to othe ffice supply store and get it laminated there may be do it your self lamination kits for standard paper sizes.

Then just tape in on with black electrical tape from the hardware store.

I bought dozens of sets of my 3-digit number from www.mrletter.com and got a several-year supply for maybe $40. Then I just cut a bunch of circles from white contact paper (home depot) using a dishplate. Then I just put the 3-digit number on a white circle. Contact paper is great because (1) it's cheap but looks good, (2) it won't allow dust underneath to scratch paint, (3) it won't let water get underneath to cloud clearcoat, (4) they will NOT come off at speed like magnetics do, and (5) at the end of the weekend, just peel right off and throw into the trash.

I highly recommend this method.

I found that a number board, with the number on it, can be a real nice way to go. the only thing you need to use is electrical tape, to affix it to the door. (match the door color or number board with colored electrical tape)
