Has anyone ordered a new 49ers specialty North Carolina license plate from the DMV recently? I just changed my tag over to the new “First in Freedom” design, which means they sent out a new plate. When I got it in the mail, it looked like the 49er logo was misprinted. It was clearly off center. I took it to the DMV, and they insisted the logo was right. They called Raleigh and they too said it was right. Said it was intended to be “3-D.” They said they’d send me a new one “just this time” but that it would probably look like the first. Just got the new one today, and it’s just like the first.
So now my question is, was this somehow intentional on the university’s part? This is apparently the file that the DMV has, so it’s “correct” on their end. I’m going to check with the alumni association (who approves the tag design) but just wanted to see if anyone else had the same problem. If this was a conscious decision, I think it looks horrible. I wonder if someone just sent and approved the wrong file to the DMV?
The old tag I had is on the left, the new one on the right. You can clearly see the difference.
