Custom Edition Plates Group Buy by Ellis Precision

These Custom Edition Plates are designed to replicate the plates found on Special Edition FJ Cruisers, but customized for your one-of-a-kind rig.

Sold as a 4-pack, and laser etched this time instead of CNC etched, for a cleaner contrast than the example picture.

Available in Matte Black or Black only, as a UV resistant black anodize will be used to prevent fading.

You can put pretty much anything you want on it! PDF artwork is preferred, black on a white background, approx 3" by 1.5" (actually 76mm by 34mm to be the same size as the TT badging), and must be emailed by February 12th. Please see the example artwork picture, but understand that the black on the artwork will come out white (bright silver) when etched. Basically, the final product will be inverted from the artwork (black art on white PDF becomes white art on a black plate when manufactured).

These adhere with emblem tape, just like the OEM emblems, and we highly recommend using the real 3M stuff. Emblem tape is not included. A small pocket is milled into the back similar to the OEM emblems to provide a more flush attachment.

Order deadline is February 12th, with an expected ship date of March 12th.

I need 20 confirmed orders to make the run happen, and payments will not be processed until we are sure we have enough interest to make this group buy a success.

To order, please PM me your information as follows:

Quote:
Name
Shipping Address

Matte Black or Black

PayPal email address
Price is $30 per plate, minimum order of 4 (typically one for the dash, one for the rear door, and 2 spares to be used as you see fit). Shipping is $10, making the minimum order $130 total.

Please post questions in this thread, and feel free to toss around artwork ideas in the thread as well!

Thank you,

Joel

The List:

1. BIGGUY - 4 gloss
2. Bad Wolf - 4 gloss
3. swamper - 4 matte
4. bazross - 2 matte/2 gloss
5. Fjextreem - 4 gloss
6. sdennie - 4 gloss
7.

Re: Custom Edition Plates Group Buy by Ellis Precision

I can and will help with art development involving simple text and logos I already have, but if you want a unique logo we will need some help, and luckily have some talented members on this forum.

Re: Custom Edition Plates Group Buy by Ellis Precision

As usual, this post is not intended as sales pressure (I'm not much of a salesman anyway), but rather to make sure those that have expressed interest get an opportunity to take part if they so desire:
@sdennie @jbreddawg @Pwn_FJ @swamper @bazross @jimmy-buffett @Ferby @Texas08FJ @KillerKeller222 @BIGGUY @FJDudeOH @Solid E @fjessence @BrianC282 @Alpine FJ @Bad Wolf

More often that not I receive PM's after a buy like this about how the post was totally missed, after I've already made and shipped the parts, so I'm just trying to not leave anyone out that expressed interest!

Thank you!

Joel

Re: Custom Edition Plates Group Buy by Ellis Precision

I'd be in but would need help with the artwork as I don't have a clue how to do it myself. I can provide a photo and info on what I would like, but that's about it.

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

Re: Custom Edition Plates Group Buy by Ellis Precision

This is the best I have for now and i hope it will work. @FJoel

I'd like the Logo to the left and the BIGGUY to the right center so it looks like the examples you posted. Thanks. Jim
