Here's a link to a neat site. It's www.acme.com. You can make all type of personal license plates for your avatar, signs, banners, etc. Many different most (all) state plates for personalization. For plates go here: www.acme.com/licensemaker/ . Current SlkWorld.com avatar sizing will work with these plates. Have fun!

NICE! I'm a big personalized plate fan. Here in Virginia, $10 extra for most plates. What a deal. In reality, your SLK is "Beautiful B55".

Buddy of mine has a Lamborgini. His plate is FK4RE

It took me the longest to figure it out. (His opinion, not mine. I like em both.)

I thought about vanity plates but the columbine ones can't be personalized, it would have looked like the first attachment, ugly IMHO, I didn't do it, the second attachment doesn't look too bad, but it's not available anymore.

Columbine ones looks the best. I actually thought about this exact design two years before the columbine tradegy, while I driving out of state and notice many pretty license plates except ours. I told my wife, our license plates must be the ugliest of all, we need own state flower (columbine) in the middle and snowy rockies on top. Now, I have it on all my vehicles.

I tried getting personalized plates here in CA. Got a letter from DMV stating that I couldn't substitute letters for numbers and numbers for letters. I applied for 'SL1K'! Haha... 'SLIK' was taken. Oh well.. just got generic plates after that.

California is tough. Here in Virginia, personalized plates are plentiful. We can substitute a "o" with a zero and the opposite. Also, the same for "1" and l (L). Keep thinking.

you are silly, but I don't think it has anything to do with your signature.

How about this...pretty cool!

This plate/vanity combo is probably more appropriate (Aerospace Commission). Hopefully it will be there when I get there.
