I am wondering what the best numbers and letters that people use are?, I have seen very small very neat ones on some arrows but can't seem to find them on the internet any info would be appreciated.
Another vote for Arrowsocks, I use white on clear for my carbon shafts and black on clear for wooden, the clear backing just makes it look as if the lettering is printed on the arrow shaft. Like the others; Name, Club, Number. Incredibly quick service and real value for money.
I use a sharpie for initials (before a quick coat of varnish). One set has the numbers on in binary, 4 bars of black and white will give you 1-16. Never been questioned by a judge, but I know which is which and other Geeks are happy.
I’m in the process of making some longbow arrows and decided to make things a little more complicated for myself.
Being an occasional scale modeller too I’ve had a bit of a mess about on windows paint and printed some water slide decals for name ( in the iron maiden font) numbers and a rebel crest from Star Wars ( yup bit of a nerd) that have attached beautifully and will be finished with a dab of decal set, time will tell how well they last
Another +1 for Arrowsocks. Having a few sets of arrows, I marks the septs A, B, C etc. So an arrow's label looks like "Fred Bloggs A.4". Never had a problem with them coming off. And if you have specific needs, have a chat with them.
