Race Numbers--question on where to buy(5 posts)

Race Numbers--question on where to buySadlebred
Jan 9, 2004 7:00 AM
I ask the collective knowledge of RBR. My team is putting on a time trial in about a month. We are looking to buy numbers for the race. Does anyone know where to get them? I've found Electric City printing (www.ecprinting.com) that has them at 100 for $61 or 500 for $160 as well as quanitities in between. Local print shops are more expensive. We are looking to be as economical with this as possible. We don't care if they are generic numbers. Any ideas on where to get them?

I think that about 75% of all numbers i have ever used have come from rainbow racing system. Our club had good luck with a company called Hercules Racing (herculesbibs.com). Google searches seem to bring up a pretty wide variety of companies - just make sure you get the numbers printed on tyvek or the equivalent. In my experience, those printed on poor stock really seem to annoy racers.

highly recommended. got all the cyclocross series #s from them. shipped immediately, arrived quickly, priced reasonably, and customer service & support were flawless.

not sure on custom; i got "cut downs", on the cheap.

HTH,

Thanks guys. Rainbow racing is perfect! Just emailed the other team director, and he likes the prices, too.

Next time around, you might want to check out Rodeo Printers. I think that we paid about $70 for 200 numbers with full color printing with our club logo. Four weeks is cutting it kinda' close.
Ps. They sell pins also.
