Apply lettering to raft

Been thinking about applying a name to my raft. Any ideas on materials to use would be welcome.

I used the rubber paint from inflatable technologies. it wasn't great. I think it may work better directly on hypalon, I applied it over gaco. The Gaco works great, but is hard to find and harder to stencil. I still have some white rubber paint if your interested. The newer pre-made labels work well if your doing several of them.

My raft is PVC a Vanguard. Do you think there is some kind of material that I could cut the letters out of and then glue them on with PVC compatible glue?

I went to the Inflatable Technologies webstie and they look like they may have the answers I'll shoot them an email and see what they say. Thanks for the lead.

Lettering

System 6 is the way to go. Way better than the Geco, more durable.

then Gaco.
