Re: PC: Large Decals or Signs

Many designers/people use vinyl lettering that can be custom cut
/computer desgned

My wife is a designer and uses a local company that seems to be able to

Last summer I visited the N5E caboose at Utica NY - in fresh vinyl
lettering that looked VERY correct for PRR

Check the yellow pages under signs.
