Colors represented on the website are visual representations. The color you receive will likely not match the way your screen shows it online. Computer monitors do not reproduce exact match to colors. We will not replace orders based on improper color selection and variations from what you saw on your screen.
We use the design preview you generated while designing as a reference. This design is your proof. Errors, omissions, or spelling mistakes are not our responsibility. We produce what you designed. If we catch spelling mistakes before production we will verify with you if this was intentional or not and then proceed. Please be sure to review the color policy above how we match colors. We cannot replace designs that included errors, omissions, or spelling mistakes.
Delivery and Shipping
You order will be shipped via USPS, unless you specify your own shipping company. We have no control on the care of your item once it has left our facility. Unfortunately packages do get lost or damaged from time to time. We will do our best to get the situation solved for you to your satisfaction.
Ultimately we cannot be responsible for shipping delays or errors by the shipping company you select. However, it is our best intention to get you your product in a timely manner. We deal with shipping issues on a case by case basis. If your package is lost we’ll replace it then deal with the shipping company directly.

Vinyl lettering should never be installed when the outside ambient temperature is below 50°F (10°C). If the surface is too hot to touch, it is too hot to install vinyl lettering also. This generally indicates in excess of 90°F.
Surface Damage Policy
Gulfstream Gear assumes no responsibility for surface damage caused by our graphics during installation, removal, or the duration of time applied.
New Paint Policy
Any graphics or lettering should not be applied to a freshly painted surface. You must wait at least 7 days regardless of what your body shop advises before applying graphics. It is critical to follow these guidelines. Fresh paint will go through an out-gas period which will cause the vinyl adhesive to prematurely release. Fresh paint can also be easily damaged by vinyl adhesive, you could actually lift the fresh paint off!
Registration Numbers, Compliant Lettering, and Local Laws
Gulfstream Gear provides guidelines for designing Coast Guard Documentation and State Boat Registration numbers in accordance with local laws. We frequently see orders which are outside these guidelines. Firstly, it is your responsibility to create compliant lettering with your local laws. We are not responsible for any citations or violations as a result of your design using our online tools or personal advisement. We will not be liable for any fines or penalties incurred as a result of the vinyl lettering designed. You are creating custom lettering at your own risk.
