Since you're in the US... why don't you try BC Rich themselves? They quite probibly won't sell them to you but it's worth a shot.
Other than that try and contact BC Rich Wholesalers. They often have spare parts and are more likely to sell that sort of thing to you.

Yeah, I know no one will like the band. But the letters were stenciled on, and the logo is a cut out and glued on.

it was originally a firstact bass and my friend cut it up in his shopclass. I made the stencil out of a print out of the letters and cut them out and taped it up.
