Millions of Michigan motorists now can become personal ambassadors of the state’s nationally known Pure Michigan tourism and economic development campaign wherever they go now that new license plates will carry its logo, according to Secretary of State Ruth Johnson. New standard plates also will advertise the state’s tourism website at www.Michigan.org and sport a blue wave along the bottom representing Michigan’s well-known reputation as the Great Lakes state with access to four of the Great Lakes and more than 11,000 inland lakes. Gov. Snyder called the plates a new way to help strengthen the Pure Michigan brand, which encourages economic growth and job creation. The final standard white plates with a blue bar across the top will be issued until they’re gone in each Secretary of State offices, but customers can request a Pure Michigan plate if they prefer one. The cost of replacing an existing plate with a standard Pure Michigan plate is $5. All new personalized, veteran and fundraising plates will have the Pure Michigan logo without asking. The cost of getting an original plate will not change and motorists with a standard white-with-blue-bar plate do not have to get a new plate. The Secretary of State’s Office and the MEDC is celebrating the new plates with a contest on Facebook.
