I was thinking about just the other day: how much additional money does it cost the state to produce multi-color designer license plates versus just a black and white plate with no frills? I'm not really expecting anyone to know the answer, but it strikes me that the fancy plates might be a useless waste of money.

#7 is by far the ugliest.
#1 looks too similar to the 1990's GA tag.
#8 is too plain.
#3 has an ugly frame.
I'm stuck between #5, #6 and #2 though I'm leaning towards #2, I just don't like the font of "Georgia". The skyline on the bottom is great though!

..and let's keep God off our plates and in church where God belongs. Separation of church and state anyone?

I like #4 but the peach looks like two butt cheeks. It needs to be tweaked.

#7 is awful. How did that get to be a finalist?

# 8 is too plain but #5 has too much going on for a license tag.

If I can manage to move back up there, I will probably opt for my old "spay and neuter" dog design tag again.

I've got Georgia on my mind...

I can understand your preference. However, I just do not agree with your last statement. The majority of the state is rural and abundant in agricultural practices, so it would be very inaccurate to have a skyline on the plate. Then again you know that what Atlanta wants, Alpharetta (or a number of other 'burbs) gets,lol.

I would prefer if they would make regional tags for each of the nine regions of GA: Atlanta Metro, the Coast, Classic South, Historic Heartland, Magnolia Midlands, Historic High Country, Northeast Mountains,Plantation Trace, and Presidential Pathways. On the tags include maybe an image that is representative of the distinctive region. That way the entire state's population will be fairly recognized. Any others think this is a winner of an idea?

Actually, I have made my vote but I am not completely sold on my pick- i think it was#5 with the tree branches over top. This is because I do not believe that the phrase 'In God We Trust' should be on the plate. Um, separation of church and state. Oh well, what the heck is the Constitution these days anyway? Anyways, I am turned off by any mention of religion or whatever interest that people choose to advertise on their vehicles. I would rather that people keep their interests to themselves instead of attempting to get attention, yet another wrong way. I have seen where bumper stickers and other displays can be quite dangerous before. Someone may despise a persons like or dislike that is adhered to their vehicle and it can create bias or even confrontation. crazy, but I have witnessed it quite a few times.
