The state of Iowa surprisingly has a vast amount lakes to pick from which makes it a great boating destination. You don't want to find yourself without proper state identification though! When boating in Iowa follow the guide below to properly display registration information on your boat.
We'll guide you through the process of creating Iowa boat numbers when you click design now. Each state has specific verbiage as to their requirements. See the Iowa specific section below. The general requirements for boat registrations numbers are as follows:
Please review your state specific requirements before purchasing identification decals as they do vary from state to state. Our designer is setup to comply with the general requirements above. If you require a specific requirement not in our designer, just leave a comment at checkout and we'll adust your design (no big deal!). Iowa DNR website surprisingly lacks specific information about registration number sizing. If you want to be 100% sure you are compliant you will have to call your local DMV or DNR office. Here is the information they provide on their site. Here.
Iowa specifies that boat numbers be placed on the forward portion of the boat (the bow) on both sides.
Our iowa number kits are solid as a pair with 2.
Your vinyl lettering is cut, weeded, and coated in a transfer tape ready to install. Installation instructions are located here. We have many optional installation accessories located in our accessories section.
Excellent graphics. The ones I ordered have to applied to a dry surface. Nothing could be easier.
No real instructions came and since the little bottles and pen were kind of expensive it would have been nice. Came out nice though.
The decal was very easy to put on, and it looks great! We ordered the dome lettering and could not be happier. It makes our runabout look snazzy.
These stickers were really good quality and easy to put on. The colors are vibrant and well defined lines. They are very attractive.
I loved playing around with the many different combinations of ways to make your words. The decal came fast. I messed up one word so they sent me a replacement for a fraction of what it would cost to order another. I love how it looks.
Love my new decal! Delivered fast and it looks great.
Fantastic quality and made very tough
Exceptional quality and service!
Very easy and clean installation
Came out great! I got the hull numbers in reflective white, which are crisp and snowy in daylight and provide extra visibility to my little skiff after dark. Uploaded a custom font for the boat name, this was the only site I saw that accommodated such. My only quibbles are that I ordered 3" spacing on the hull number trying to end up with 2", as the preview made it look like the selected spacing was affected by the font; it was.in fact spaced exactly 3". I should have asked. I just cut between the sections and placed them manually. Secondly, the decal sheets are cut free with a scissors, and not some sort of cutting tool, so the edge of the sheet is of no use for placement. The application fluid, however, works great, and gives some ability to fine tune everything.
