    As recently noted in the thread on the Early Jeep Restoration & Research Forum, Bear Creek has now stopped producing reproduction Jeep VIN stickers.

    To help fill this void for forum members who need them, I've developed the artwork templates to reproduce each of the VIN sticker formats that were used during the 1969 through 1975 model years. To see example images and a more thorough description of each format, please take a look at this post:

    Source For Dash Vin Stickers

    I initially worked with Keys5a (Donny), a member of this forum, to put together a trial sticker for his Jeep. After some research, I finally found a printer that was able to replicate the sticker with a clear border to match the originals. I emailed the finished artwork to the printer, and Donny paid them directly for the cost of printing the sticker and shipping it to him. Since then, I've followed this same procedure with several other forum members. All the VIN stickers made this way to date turned out very well.

    As I noted in the above thread,

    "I set out to make these reproduction formats as accurate to the originals as possible. Here's a sample of the current 1972-73 reproduction VIN sticker artwork partially overlaid on the image of an original 1972 sticker that Donny was kind enough to loan me. As I hope is evident, achieving this level of replication was anything but "a quick Photoshop job":

    Here's a photo of the actual sticker from the artwork made for forum member Rubicloak's '71, shown below his original sticker (Thanks, Eric!):

    I can provide the appropriate artwork for your model year, complete with your VIN and the other included information, for $15 via Paypal or USPS money order (no checks, please). I will send the reproduction image to you first for your approval, after which I'll email the finished image to the printer. I'll then send the printer's contact info so you can arrange to pay for the printing and shipping of the sticker directly. The printer charges $35 total for the printing and shipping of the smaller stickers, so your total cost, including the artwork, printing, and shipping would be approx. $50 (possibly slightly more for the larger stickers).

    I realize that the level of accuracy and attention to detail I'm providing with this service is more important to some than to others, and that there are alternative options out there. My goal is simply to provide the best VIN sticker reproduction images I can create for those who value that.

    If you would like one for your Jeep, please PM me, and I'll respond with my email / Paypal address. Please email the model year and size of sticker (if applicable) you need, along with your jeep's serial number typed into the email.

    If it still exists, please also email a photo of your current sticker, even if it's in poor condition. Having a photo of the original helps greatly in making each reproduction image match the alignment of the original sticker's line-printed portions as closely as possible.

    Thanks for your interest!

    I was happy to see this. I can find no trace of my 75's sticker but would love to have one. I will PM you as soon as I can get to the VIN. Thanks for providing this!

    Update:
    This is a picture of the plate that was mounted on the right side of the dash, near the glove box door.

    No signs there was ever a decal on the left like is common. I wonder if they removed it before painting it forest service green, or never bothered to put it on. I am PM'ing you the full vin.
    Thanks.
    Frank

    Bump for Maurywhurt. I received mine today. The printer is a nice guy and he sent two of the decals for the price of one. He told me ahead of time that there might be an extra because of the way they are made. I will hang on to the extra in case I repaint the Jeep in the future. Good product.
