Michigan, the automobile capital of the world, has some of most basic and fewest options for license plates. 36 options not including military plates. 3 standard option plates, "Spectacular Peninsula" "Mackinac Bridge" and the basic white with blue plate. Our 13 fundraising, 4 sports team, and 15 University plates are all based on the same boring layout: a white background with a small square reserved for a picture on the left of the plate. 

Texas has a staggering 500+ plate options. Their plates are made by a private company, not inmates. With themes from carbon fiber to Dr. Pepper, Gadsden flag to Ford, there is something for everyone. A texan can even get a UofM plate. You can go to myplates.com and browse their offerings. Texas has sold so many plates since 2009 that $80m has been deposited into a general fund. This doesn't include money raised for special interests. 

Florida and Arizona both have numerous beautiful plates dedicated to fundraising for various wildlife and nature conservancies. People are more likely to buy a fundraising plate if its actually pleasant to look at, in turn raising more money for these foundations! Imagine going into the Michigan Secretary of State office and having plate options for the Sleeping Bear Dunes or Macinac Island. How about a series of plates highlighting the beauty of the Upper Peninsula? Or if you're a car enthusiast having the ability to get a plate with your favorite auto manufacturer's logo (Chevy/Ford/Dodge ect.) How about an M22 plate or maybe a Cherry Capital plate?  I could continue on with a plethora of ideas for Michigan license plates. Please help support this vision of beautiful plates on the cars, trucks and motorcycles in the world's automobile capital! 

The more traction this idea gains the better chance we'll have when I make a presentation to our law makers in Lansing. Thank-you for your time.
