leather lettering?

Anyone know of a site where I can get pre-cut leather letters/numbers in basically any size/color? Im wanting to get some lettering done on my suit and really dont want to ship it off to someone when I have a local shop that will sew them on for me if I bring the letters in.

If you find an upholstery shop in your area, they can make whatever you want out of whatever material they have/you give them. It's usually fairly cheap as well.

check out syed, they make custom suits im sure they can hook you up with some letters. vanson leathers or bates leather may also do it.

I checked with some of the custom suit makers and got stupid prices per letter. I think I got it figured out tho...scored me some naughyde type vinyl (looks like leather with high abrasion resistance and durability) in the color I wanted off ebay...and gonna make my own stencils for the letters/font I want to use. Then Ill just cut them out myself and take them with my suit to the leather alteration place and let them sew em on cheap. SHOULD work out...lol
