So a friend of mine asked for a custom design... She works for the government, make of that what you will...

I'm sure you recognize those stickers that people have on their cars... proving to everyone just how well-traveled they are (or something)... well, this one's for you, C*.

Lo and behold, though, there is a legitimate history to these stickers, and it's kinda interesting!

DISTINGUISHING SIGN OF VEHICLES IN INTERNATIONAL TRAFFIC (via ovalstickers.net)

1. The distinguishing sign shall be composed of one to three letters in capital Latin characters. The letters shall have a minimum height of 80 mm. (3.1 in.) and their strokes a width of 10 mm. (0.4 in.). The letters shall be painted in black on a white ground of elliptical form with the major axis horizontal.
2. If the distinguishing sign is composed of three letters, the dimensions of the ellipse shall be at least 240 mm. (9.4 in.) in width and 145 mm. (5.7 in.) in height. The dimensions may be reduced to 175 mm. (6.9 in.) in width and 115 mm. (4.5 in.) in height if the sign carries less than three letters. As regards the distinguishing signs for motorcycles, the dimensions of the ellipse, whether the sign is composed of one, two or three letters, may be reduced to 175 mm. (6.9 in.) in width and 115 mm. (4.5 in.) in height.
3. The distinctive letters for the different States and territories...
well, I won't list all of
them here. Needless to say, IHP isn't one of them.
