Nothing wrong with the number section but the "California" above it makes the whole stick on look far too big...does it need to be there?......Steve

Ok, starting to understand. I agree with Steve’s comment, the font on the licence number looks fine but looks far too big with the word California above. Is it a legal requirement?

Why would one do that?
Actually looks worse than stock location.
I’m in Calif and first thing i did 40 years ago was remove front plate on my Jag.
Same on my Sprite and an Alfa I used to have. Got a fixit ticket around 76 on the Alfa, none since.

Opinions noted. Thanks! In California (as in many? most? other states) both a front and rear plate are required, however apparently unlike other states, enforcement here is spotty. The license plate wrap is an alternate to the metal front plate. https://licenseplatewrap.com/

If you’re looking for legal i would doubt the wrap is legal. Only the issued plate is legal. A wrap may garner more attention than nothing as it’s not issue and you could have a fake number done for whatever nefarious reason.
