    My DH gave me these name tags for my bikes for Christmas. Today I finally got one of them on one of my bikes! Here is how it looks:Click image for larger version.

    That's awesome. Where did he get these stickers? Are they bike specific or regular stickers? I have a robins egg blue Surly CC named "Leonard" (don't ask) & he'd love to know his name. Lol

    Thanks! He had them made up at a sign shop in our town. I don't think they are bike specific. I didn't really quiz him about them! I was just so surprised when I opened the gift that I didn't ask questions! I just thought how very thoughtful he was to think of it. I will quiz him about them and let you know.

    Very fast service. You get to pick the color, type style, etc. Easy to apply. I've had them on my oldest bike for about 7 years and no signs of peeling off or anything.

    Yes he went to a local sign making shop. He got to choose the font, size and colour. They are self adhesive vinyl. He said they took a couple of days and were not too pricey. I assume they will last a long time since that is what they are designed for (adhesion to metal).

    What an fantastic idea. I would love to have a name tag for my bike, but then I would have to think of name for the bike. I am not too original so I guess it will have to wait.

    Finally...

    I have my name and a Union Jack on my bikes. Santa brought me a sheet of the stickers last Xmas. I love them and they look great!
