Name Stickers

I've seen some folks with cool personlaized stickers of their name on the top tube of their bikes, like the pros often have. Short of getting a Trek Project One bike, does anyone know of a reasonable place to buy these (and preferrably online)?

I haven't done business with them, but recall others here have and were reasonably happy.

Try the mall kiosk where everybody gets thier idiotic stickers made for their SUV's and pick up windows. I always like to know the names of all the family members in the vehicle that just missed running me off the road.

That way you can look up where they live and set their house on fire.

I got some from here:
Click me you fool

I found out about them from an article on cyclingnews.com WRT the fact that these guys were doing Discovery's tags. Fairly cheap and you get more than you could ever use.
