TNP Decals

It has been years since we had decals made up. These are cut-vinyl paddler logos that can be applied to your car or boat. There are new boats and new paddlers. I would have some made up if I know how many people are interested. Please e-mail me at and let me know if you would like a decal. Please put TNP in the subject line. Tell me how many and black or white. The cost for each would be around $4.00 depending how many are ordered.
