I won't be getting one, I like the concept though... why not.
The Bomber ones I think it's like $40 for each plate went to the club (since it's community owned). I would imagine if they did this with the jets at least a portion would go to their charitable foundation.

Per ChrisD on twitter

Winnipeg Jets have called a Tuesday morning presser with Mark Chipman and Premier Greg Selinger.

Could this be about the plates?

The Winnipeg Jets are about to lift a marketing strategy directly out of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' playbook.

The hockey team, along with the province and Manitoba Public Insurance, are expected to announce plans today to unveil Jets-branded licence plates just in time for Christmas. Premier Greg Selinger, in fact, is scheduled to take the microphone at a media event at 11 a.m.

i would assume it'd be the same way as the bombers plates. Go through autopac? I don't know what the procedure was. If you had to surrender your old plates or what.

Jets licence plate FAQ

Here are the Jets new licence plate FAQ

Was difficult to get a non-glare picture. Even after they turned off the lights.

thats pretty neat
not much different from the bomber one.

one thing I dont see on the FAQ is how many will be available
the bombers had 8100 I believe...
Maybe the jets should go up too 9999
The demand will be there

How many will be made available?

According to Scott Brown there will be as many available as demand will allow. If there are more than the 9999, the J will be removed to add another number, and then the W will be removed if necessary.

Is that Jones and Meech? Giving the injured guys something to do? Haha.

I'd be excited if I owned a car, and my girlfriend would never go for anything like this. She won't even put a flag on her car.

thank you
that is a pretty awesome idea.
I know lots of people were a bit unpset they couldn't get a bomber plate.
I may have to get a Jets plate.

I hope they have sorted out their position on people without cars buying some.

I was told many times before the bomber ones went on sale that I just had to pay a $15 admin fee. When they went on sale, I was 2nd in line at a insurance place by my work to get them, and they couldn't sell them to me because I didn't have an open policy with MPI. After a week of calling various people to find out what was going on, my father in law just bought the set under his name for me.

Maybe register a car, but register it with the car in storage. That's usually pretty cheap. Then cancel after you got the plates.
