I’m looking for two stickers to put on my Phantom 4 Pro: my FAA reg # and a “If lost please call (aaa) ppp-nnnn” sticker.

Other than DIY, has anyone purchased any online and would like to make a recommendation: Amazon preferred

Thank you

I have to admit, msinger's decals look really cool, they look like the numbers on the back of an airplane. But honestly I just have a label maker with waterproof white label paper and I made a label with my FAA registration number and my phone number on it and stuck it in the spot between the battery and the gimbal on my Phantom 4. It fits perfect there and looks pretty cool actually, if an FAA sticker can look cool...

here's something that I thought of, might be a good idea, might just be stupid, but if my drone is ever stolen, and I I am able to find it, and I see that the thief has ripped off the sticker with my FAA number and phone number so that I can't prove it's mine, I installed three or four very small FAA registration and phone number labels inconspicuously in the battery compartment. I applied one of the stickers so far in the back using some pencil erasers so that the only way to remove that sticker is to take apart the Drone or somehow get a knife in there and pick at it for a very long time.

Might be a good idea, might not.

But if you have a label maker with white waterproof labels, then you can just make a quick label for free. Stick it on somewhere where it looks purposeful, and IMO it looks pretty sharp!

I just used a Brother label maker. They even have little helicopter and plane emoji icons :)
Mine looks kind of like this but white on black:

Used my Brother label maker too. Dang thing won't stay stuck. I've cleaned it with alcohol repeatedly. Still won't stay for more than a few days. Finally ordered some from @msinger. Should be here in a few days. Enough for all 3 drones, and some spares.

I had the same problem, the things not sticking. I bought some cheap aftermarket label cartridges and surprisingly that's what did the trick! Those things are never coming off on their own!

I've seen some cheap label tape, but my experience is primarily with the Brother TZ (plastic) labels. If they are applied to smooth/semi-smooth plastic, glass, or metal They stay for years. They don't like to be bent, so if you want to wrap it around a wire it is best to stick it to itself, adhesive side to adhesive side, so it sticks out like a flag.
For the drone I just stuck it on the underside of my P3S right next to the serial # sticker. I expect the brother label to out last the paper serial# label.
Dymo makes a line of labels for their Rino label maker that are cloth. Those stick well even wrapped around a wire, but if you ever have to remove it it will leave a sticky residue.
