There are at least 6 stringers I'm aware of in Seattle area.
It's pretty much word of mouth and I think the price
is in the range of $15 to $20 USD.

Racket stencils are available upon request, Yonex, Victor, Kason. Grommets inspected upon receipt of racket, and replaced as needed, no extra charge (unless too many grommets are ruined). All stringing done on a professional Babolat machine with all necessary badminton attachments.

Story: great guy to speak to over the phone, very knowledgeable, followed AT800 pattern (which some don't) and decent price. Great range of strings as well.
Sadly, my AT800 went missing on its way to him for a second time.

The reason I put it on, is several times, some ppl accuse me doing a poor job, while they were actually receive the service from someone else. I don't know they simply made a mistake (i.e. friends brought their rackets to someone) or intentionally try to rip me off. Luckily, each time I can prove to them by showing the different string type, pattern or knotting. Afterward, I decide to "promote" my own string job, and avoid any confusion.
Did you come to BBC as a regular? Maybe we can meet up some day? Just don't laugh at my lowly playing skills, though.

However, I received mixture of feedback regarding this store. I was once told by several college club players, as their rackets were screwed from there. I think it might be different stringer working for different shifts. Therefore, if your racket end up into some newbie (at least, regarding badminton rackets) stringers hand, good luck.
