What is a Tesla KEEPSAKE?

I designed what I call a Tesla KEEPSAKE, an aluminum plaque printed with a background image of a Tesla with foreground text commemorating the custom manufacture of a specific Tesla vehicle for a specific buyer.


I’ll explain a bit more about the Tesla KEEPSAKES plaques in a little while, but first I want to tell a little about myself and how I came to create the plaques.

My name is Bruce Newell and I only became interested in Teslas after I heard the news report early in the day on March 31st, 2015, telling about the announcement for the $35,000 Model 3 later that evening.  About an hour prior to the Model 3 announcement I accessed the Tesla Motors website for the first time.  I had never even seen a Tesla in person at this time!

Upon viewing the TeslaMotors.com website I was totally amazed about the Models S and X.  I then logged on to view the announcement presentation.  As soon as I saw what the Model 3 looked like, I IMMEDIATELY submitted my reservation — which happened to be at approximately number 120,000 on the on-screen counter!  I took my first test drive in a Model S P90D a few days later.  What a wonderful and amazing auto!!

Now back to the plaques…

After I reserved my Model 3 I further explored the TeslaMotors.com website.  When I viewed the Tesla Gear online shop I was surprised to see there was nothing to commemorate the actual purchase of the best automobiles ever manufactured.  I was looking for some sort of plaque or other keepsake.

I decided that if I, a brand new convert to the all-electric Tesla, was wanting something special to show that my (eventual) Model 3 was “custom manufactured” specially for me, then maybe other present and future Tesla owners would like something as well.  Hence, the reason for this website.

This website will allow owners to order a customized commemorative plaque.  These aluminum plaques are printed by a special process where the printing will not rub or scratch off and are fade proof.  Additionally, these plaques are small enough to be mounted in many possible locations.  With the provided industrial strength Velcro®, an ideal location is at the front-facing vertical surface inside the front trunk in the Model S and Model X.

Please see the Order page to order your own customized plaque.

Note: I found it difficult to take photos of the actual aluminum plaques due to reflections.  I will replace the above photos when I am able to get better pictures.
