Use a masking technique not covered in my guide. Maybe in the future I will create a good guide on howto mask areas off and create custom graphics/text.

Basically what you want to do is take masking tape and mask off the general area where you will want your name to be. Use blue painters tape for this part

Then draw out your design/name.

Next cut it so that you leave just the design.

Next paint your case following my guide. after it dries mask over the paint and your masking job with normal manilla masking tape.

You should be able to see the original masking tape below your new layer.
now cut through to the first layer and peel out your design. now paint in the new hole.

Then you should have a nice offset colored name.

you might want to use some clearcoat and spray it in a cup and then hand paint the edges to make sure you cover everything you want.

Any questions feel free to ask them here.
