1. Vinyl Lettering - Peel and stick individual vinyl letters on your bumper or rear window to spell your out URL. You can usually find vinyl lettering at your local hardware store or craft shop. The hardware store usually only has black on white or white on black. Online craft supply stores such as Dick Blick Art Materials, joann.com, or MisterArt.com offer several colors of vinyl letters.
Why advertise for your car dealer Carefully peel off the car dealers vinyl sticker on the rear of your car and replace or cover it with your own URL. One disadvantage of using vinyl, it is usually only available in all upper case.
2. License Plate Frames - A lot of car dealers put their own license plate frames on new and used cars so you can advertise for them while driving around. Why not replace it with your own license plate frame and advertise your website If you have the right size vinyl letters, you can stick them over the existing frame. Sometimes you can simply turn the frame over and stick the vinyl letters on the blank back. For less than fifteen bucks you can design your own custom full color metal license plate frame at CafePress.com. Here are a few sample license plate frames:

Sticker and Frame Design Tips:
Only use top level domain URLs The shorter the URL the better because it will be much easier for the other driver to remember since most people dont write down what they see while driving.
Eliminate "http://" and sometimes "www"
Typing "http://" is not required in most browsers and is just a waste of space. In most cases, adding the "www" before the domain name is not necessary ie. www.mrgoodbeer.com is the same as mrgoodbeer.com. Make sure to test your domain name without the "www" before using it in any advertising.
Capitalize when appropriate
Use both upper and lower case letters in your URL to help the reader identify and remember your site ie. MrGoodbeer.com is more appealing and memorable than mrgoodbeer.com. Note, most individual vinyl letters are only available in upper case so this is not possible with them.
Bright colors attract the drivers attention. Try red on yellow or yellow on red.
Read the guidelines carefully
