So I have three cars, well for this forum. 71 bug, 72 squareback, 73 thing. The issue is I have a " it's not a car it's a type three" on the squareback. I have only seen the sticker for the thing. Does anyone know where I can get it in plate form for the thing. I think they look naked with no tag up there. Thanks more to come I am sure.

Cut a piece of sheet metal or aluminum sheet. Stick the "It's not a car it's a THING" sticker on it. Mount that on the front, and you have your front plate.

If either of these will do it for you, send me a PM, and I will email the vector file.
Any sign shop will make this for you.

What do sign shops normally charge for these? In your experience.

I submitted an inquiry to the link I posted above, just for my own curiosity.

I believe these are dye sublimation printed on aluminum blanks, with some sort of anti-UV coating.

I have not heard back from them, but they do offer similar products for about 20 bucks.

More later, Mondshine

I had one for my Mini

As I had mentioned, I submitted an inquiry to the link I posted above, just for my own curiosity.
These are dye sublimation printed on aluminum blanks, with some sort of anti-UV coating.

Update:
I received word from Mike K. at Signchicken.com.
He has the vector version of the artwork I posted above, but you can PM me for it, if preferred.
A single plate (either version) will be $16.99 plus shipping.
For 10 or more, the price is $11.00 each plus shipping.

I don't need one of these, so contact Mike directly, or set up a group purchase if you'd like.

Good luck, Mondshine

Citroen's plate is a stamped plate from about 15 years ago.
