We can understand the frustration and pressure of putting on a golf tournament. Our sister site golf-signs.com offers a simple to use online golf tee sign designer with hundreds of pre made golf sign templates ready personalize to your golf event.
Hassle Free Sponsor Layout
We deliberately made out our online vinyl sign designer limited in what it can do. Instead of having to worry about lining up text, making fonts the right size, and generally making sure the sign looks good. We made it so all you need to worry about is if you have a logo or text, and what color you want it. At that point you simply type your text just like using microsoft word and the text is automatically sized and centered correctly on the sign for you.
Upload Your Own Logos
We understand the need to use a company logo on certain signs. Lets be honest they look better with a logo most of the time. Our system makes it easy to upload an image directly to the sign. You see it in real time making the process simple. Click on the upload button and the image will be placed right on the sign for you to see.
We pride ourselves in meeting your deadline for golf tournaments so we ship all orders in two business days or less with the option of next day overnight delivery if required. If you call us we may be able to do a rush ship for you the same day.

Size does matter!
Lets face it the whole point of getting vinyl lettering is so you can get your message out. If you are cutting corners by making the size smaller and trying to save money you are only costing yourself money! The size is one of the most important factors when you are buying lettering. There are a few key points to consider:
- Filling your entire space on something like a window all the way to the edge can look like a bit much, consider the 80/20 rule. The vinyl letters should take up about 80% of the window
- When in doubt, go bigger. Even though letters that may be a tad bit too large may look out of place, it won’t be nearly as bad as not being able to read them
Colors make or break the effectiveness
One common mistake people make it choosing colors that simply don’t work with the surface they have. Always choose a nice contrasting color. Keep in mind that windows when viewed from outside are typically a dark gray to black color. It is quite counter intuitive but that is usually how they appear. This means that Yellow, White, and light blue can stand out well on a window.
Outlines save the day
When you have a color that you are either stuck with or can’t change that blends into the surface to much then add an outline to it in a contrasting color. Outlines are used commonly and look great. Not to mention when you are stuck in this situation it is a great way to resolve it.
Wet Application method works well for big pieces
Use the wet application method when you have a big piece of vinyl. Although the transfer paper can be a bit combersome to remove it will give you more flexibility and forgiveness when applying.
Etched Glass vinyl is cheaper and looks good too
Our etched glass vinyl lettering product is a really great looking and cheap alternative to real sandblast etching. You can expect the same look as sandblast or acid etching but it’s DIY and is totally removable. Don’t worry if you can’t design exactly what you want on our site, we can do your own logo or custom file at no extra charge!
