With the demise of Barry's Model Lettering, where can one get lettering for RNLI lifeboats? Whilst BECC do the Bliss Yellow for the stern lettering and also the Bliss shadow to make up name plates their lettering packs are still in the old font of Arial and for the bow and Wheelhouse roof legend it needs to be in Bliss Bold. Any ideas. I have contacted Dawson signs and Stickylettering but neither can/will do in Bliss font.

I have used David Leftley graphics for mine and found them to be superb. Speedline use him for the Shannon graphics. I will look for a contact number and post it later

Hi Manofkent (from a fellow man Of Kent! Folkestone😉)
If you have an inkjet printer and the Bliss font on your PC (downloadable I expect) you can make your own decals, any scale you like, with printable decal film.
For instance, found on Amazon-
Must also be on Amazon UK.

I made the name decals for my Sea Scout with this, using Winword on the PC.

Thanks for the tip. It so happens that my No2 son has the cutter device that runs off a pc so he is going to see about making a set. I know the size, so hope for the best.
