Michigan MC Number stickers – $15.95
We accept VISA | MasterCard | PayPal | Amex and Discover
Michigan MC Number stickers come in 10 colors and 8 fonts. The State of Michigan’s MC number requirements (read more here) are very specific, and our numbers comply with all regulations – size, font, and letter spacing. Just remember to pick a color that contrasts with your boat’s hull color. If your hull is white, black or blue numbers offer the required contrast. If your hull is colored or dark, you can choose lighter colors, or even specialty metallic and carbon-fiber look colors (as shown below.)
Your 3 inch tall Michigan MC Number stickers can be created with dashes or no-dashes.
Select your color and font from the lists below, type into the order form exactly as you received them from the Secretary of State, use dashes if you’d like to, and click add to cart. Then check out with our easy PayPal ordering system. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal accepted. Each set (one of the port side, one for the starboard side) is just $ 15.95 plus shipping ($0.95) and Michigan sales tax. You only need to order one set to have numbers on both sides of your boat’s hull.
How fast will I get my numbers?
We run numbers generally within 2 days of receipt of order, unless we post otherwise on our web site (e.g. when we are vacationing on a Michigan lake somewhere!) This means your order usually goes out within 48 hours, and then is mailed from East Lansing, MI. For most points in Michigan, this is a 2-3 day delivery (longer to the U.P. and shorter to Grand Rapids and Metro Detroit.) If you order on a Monday, you will get usually receive your order by Friday in time for your lake-boating weekend adventures. Contact us directly if you need your numbers sooner and we can arrange for overnight (extra) shipping. We cannot control the post office, and all packages are sent first class.
If you order on a Friday, you’ll have them the following week, mid week, in time for a long weekend.
We have recently updated our ecommerce software. If you have any issues with ordering, or did not receive an order confirmation email, call Ann at 517-402-8500!

Boat Registration Stencils
Stencils are designed for plastic roto-molded hulls like kayaks and sport boats that are not fiberglass. These stencils are paint mask stencils. You apply them as easily as our vinyl Michigan MC Numbers above, choosing fonts/typefaces below, but once affixed, you spray paint your numbers permanently on your hull. If you use a powered kayak (small motor) or have a small fleet of rental canoe or kayak or small sail boats, you’re required to have MC numbers displayed on these motor kayaks, rental kayak, canoe or sailboats.
