ApologetiX License Plates
Tue., Dec. 11. 2001 3:19pm EST

APOLOGETIX LICENSE PLATES

Karl Messner, lead guitarist and producer for ApologetiX here.

Ok, so we're all doing our Christmas shopping and trying to figure out what to get people. (Why can't everyone just do what I did and create a wish list at Amazon.com of the books and DVD's they want and their friends can just go there, click "wishlist" and punch in their email to see what they want?) ;)

And we all want to keep Christ in Christmas, and for our unsaved family and friends, we're hoping to get them something that will reach them, and for our Christian friends, we're trying to get them something that will teach them. So we looked around ApologetiXland here and found our box of CD's with imperfect jewel cases, and we thought, "Heck we could make these available for like half price, and our biggest fans will scoop them up and use them as the ultimate stocking stuffer, grab bag gift and evangelistic tool!"

And I had another idea, for the DIE HARD ApologetiX fan (and you know who you are). I WANTED to have a contest to see who had the most clever ApologetiX "vanity" custom plate for their car, but there's one problem- "ApologetiX" is too long a word for any state (I think) to put even on a vanity plate.

So, I thought we'd get entries like "GETIX" and "PARODEE" and "BETHRHAP" "YISJBLOND", or of course "UR COOL" (if you've been to a show- you might get that one, and I don't tell that to just anybody.) But I decided that wasn't cool enough, so I sort of dropped, it. BUT we have a much, much cooler idea if you're the ultimate ApologetiX fan.

We have NOVELTY License plates with "ApologetiX" on them. They are totally awesome, and look exactly like real license plates, with raised letters and mounting bracket with plastic cover... and you can use them on the front of your car (unless your state requires you to have front and rear plates, in which case it goes in your back window.) We can get them for your state, and you can put them on your car, and send in a picture of you kneeling in front of your car with the plate on, and get this ... we'll put them on our website (once we get a few). Now you gotta take a good picture -- you sitting on the ground with a close up of like just your head and the plate and maybe the grille or something ;) Then you can tell all your friends that you're a huge ApologetiX fan and your picture is even on the official band site!

Here's what to do:

1) Order the plate today! We may only offer the plates for a while, and we get them specially made. Just e-mail and tell us how many and for which state(s). Send a check for $24.95 + $4 shipping payable to ApologetiX, 1343 Davis Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15212-1977. It'll take a week or two to get it out to you, so if you're thinking Christmas, do it today! We'll get your plate made for you and into the mail as quickly as we can.

2) Keep it for your self, or give it as a gift, and make sure you tell them to take that close up and send it in for the website.

3) Take that close up of just you and your plate on your car (the coolest ones will have the whole family in there- everyone wearing their ApologetiX tishirt they got from http://www.apologetix.com/cds.html and email a JPG of it to this special email address: license@apologetix.com

4) Once we get a few, we'll post them and tell you it's up! I can't wait to see what our nuttiest fans come up with.

God Bless, Karl -- Karl Messner Lead Guitarist/Producer
