    I think some stringers do the stenciling for you for free or a small charge. You can also buy the stencil and do it yourself if you have time.

    ... and when you print it off, laminate it first and then cut it out. This way, it won't degrade over time;).

    Treat it as if you're painting a wall! Simple enough rite! =) Just a thin layer.

    You can buy special ink for the logo. Yonex sells black and red (if I remember correctly) and nearly each other badminton brand has them aswell. They aren't very expensive.

    I'd recommend you get that ink, because it's much better for your strings than perma markers and normal paint.

    I stenciled the yonex logo onto my own racquet like a week ago. I asked the kind and friendly staff member whether I could do it or not.. and she allowed me to do it. haha.

    It's the best to use proper stencil ink for badminton:

    i don't like putting the YY logo on my strings one reason is it leaves red or black marks on the head of the birdie after a while...

    It can also leave the colour on your handle if you pick up the shuttlecocks by hand.

    recently i stenciled YY logo to my racket.... thanx for the info guys...

    but, that YY logo only become cool when it seen from the far away... if i see it from closer look, nothing special bout it...

    btw, if i stenciled YY logo, i used a permanent marker, did it will affect my string??

    for the record, i change my string every 2-3 months

    Some will do it for free and others will charge you. Just ask the stringer.
