I know nothing of what they're allowed to do or what. But I found this site:

http://www.autoplates.com/store/european-plates-c-6177.html?cPath=_6177
Apparently in this country logos other than national symbols aren't permitted, but I know of at least one site that allows you to design custom plates with them. Wouldn't do FG any favours to sell number plate stickers though IMO.

Quiky, do you only make the vinyls yourself or the static clings aswell? Any chance of a mirrored version or the cling to put inside my back window, the one on the outside fell off somewhere and is advertising FG from the side of the road.

All previous clings and vinyls were made by a local shop (which charges too much). I won't be making any clings, as they don't sell.
Any reason you don't want to use a vinyl?

I just prefer like how easy clings are to take off and move around, plus they don't leave any gunk behind. I suppose if I get one of these new vinyls I won't need to move it anyway. :)

Thanks for the effort, but that doesn't cut it... and I could do that myself with some German online shops. ;) My point is to have the FG logo on it. Just writing is boring.
you could try that, they at least advertising they Print Company Logos too.

I know nothing of what they're allowed to do or what. But I found this site:

dat ain't Mounting brackets. I think the Police over here wouldn't be much amused about a Fake T?V Placket and a Fantasy styled License Plate . Cause , Germany, we have rules you know ;);)

Maybe I'm just blind, but I don't find a product with the possibility of choosing a graphic file to print. Only the "Infos zu Grafiken" menu item, but that info only tells me to use vector formats.
You are not completely blind, just a bit. The fine print says: "If you want a logo on your Kennzeichenhalter, send a mail with the file to info@.... We'll get back to you with a sample layout."

EDIT: Got beaten by eight minutes - that's what you get for having too many tabs open.

Brainwave. Vinyls for filler caps/flaps (circular to go around caps and a more square/rectangular one for flaps) and using the correct font of course.

After many days and multiple yards of wasted vinyl.. I have success!
For authentic purposes, please turn the volume all the way up and repeat the video for several hours.



Due to the numerous problems I have had with this machine, it is getting replaced with a completely different model. This one tears the vinyl randomly, does not complete the cuts on the letters causing them to be lifted with the scrap, cutting mat which tears the backing paper off the vinyls, and the noise when the cutting head is activated.

Anyway, the 16 vinyls I had success with will be in the store shortly (1x4). Other sizes will wait until I get a replacement machine in this week.

It's been almost a month since I ordered a couple of stickers, guess they got lost in the mail. Meh, bad luck I guess.
