One thing, you need to use glossy photo paper and a good color printer but since the lettering are small anyway, a good color printer might not even make a big difference.
The other one is still a working project...the production number is from my VIN and it's also printed out from my color printer. The plate is from any engraving/trophy place--ask them to cut you a plate. Also, if you want to be fancy, you can actually do a sublimation process from the same place you bought the plate from--not sure on how much. I rather do it myself since it is so easy.
If you guys are lazy to do it, maybe I can make it for you. Sacramento people, I can make one and bring it to one of the meet.
