A while back (about 1 year) I remember a site/banner for professionally-created Call sign emblems (that used 3M automotive tape) and were quite nice looking.  

If I remember right they were used to raise money for clubs and you couldn't buy them directly so you had to go through a club (a pain, and i never did it).

I wanted to get one but can't find it.  Does anyone remember this outfit?

Thanks.  This was the site I was looking for.  Even though it accepts orders through Paypal, it calculated my total wrong so I didn't place the order and called the vendor, J Systems in Illinois.

Turns out that they don't make the product any longer but have kept the website up.  Its a shame.  Great looking product.

Rats! I had hoped to have one of these made when I bought a new vehicle this spring. I guess I shouldn't have waited.  I guess I can "un-bookmark" the site. Thanks for the info. 73, Mark

While I don't know of any products like this, another alternative is to use adhesive vinyl.  It's great for automotive use.  I have it on a truck that I take to Bears games... a big 3 foot wide "C" symbol on each side, and a smaller 1 foot by 1 foot "growling bear" logo on the back door.  It's survived the harsh Chicago winter with no problem.  

A Chicago Tribune article last week talked about how custom shops are forgoing traditional airbrushing and pinstriping in favor of vinyl.

Any local sign shop can make this stuff.  It's even easier if you have a program like Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW on your computer- you can draw out your callsign, etc. and have it made.  You can install it yourself or have the shop do it.

A good friend of mine works at a local sign shop (http://www.omnisigns.biz) and did the work for me as well as a logo for his own car: http://home.attbi.com/~n9oa/pics/van-back-callsign.jpg

When I had my own business a few years ago, I found that Fast Signs did a good job at a reasonable price for me. Look at www.fastsigns.com  Good luck.

I make etched glass looking call sign letters to
go on your vehicle for $8. I also do sand blasting
of call signs into glass for your shack.
