For sale - reflective "POLITE" for back of jacket

I thought this would be a great way to catch people's attention and maybe buy me a little space - I put the word "POLITE" in reflective letters on the back of my jacket. Letters are made with awesome 3M reflective material, come already aligned on a clear sheet, and you just iron it on with a regular home iron, then peel the clear sheet away. It's at least as reflective as the reflective piping on my jacket.

This is with no direct light. Letters dull grey:




This is with a flashlight from about 15 ft:




Same photo, more cropping:




Lettering is 9" wide:




By 3" tall:




You could iron directly to jacket as I did, or onto a piece of Cordura or similar material and then attach less permanently (ie Velcro) if you prefer. If anyone is interested, I can have more made and ship you one for Cdn$15 in Canada or US$15 to US. PayPal preferred. I'm able to entertain requests until 5 June, which will give me time to get them out to you before I disappear for the summer.

Thoughts?

It is made from high end 3M reflective iron-on material. It comes aligned on a plastic sheet so you don't have to align individual letters. I used home iron, and presto! all done. Super reflective. Just waiting for a warm day to use my mesh jacket. Will put same on my other jacket too.

Let me know if you want to get one.

Looks sorta like 'POLICE'. ?
Maybe it's supposed to.
How about 'KIND'?

I thought the same as soon as I saw it. Could be a real attention getter for cages coming up behind you. I may go in for a couple. The pics with the flashlight shining on it aren't showing up for me though.

I'm sure an LEO coming up behind you is not going to be impressed...

Years ago, I knew a guy with an old POS Crown Vic ex-cop car. He put a red baseball cap in one side of the back window and a blue one in the other. Got stopped a bunch of times.

In the USA, they could care less. It's clearly not impersonating a LEO. If a cager can't read and thinks otherwise, that's their problem. I've seen cycling jerseys that said "I support my County Sheriff" with County Sheriff in big letters. They got cagers attention the same way.
