I agree. What if all reproduced paperwork actually has "REPRODUCTION" across it so it could potentially prevent future problems? If you had a car that actually had one of the main docs that people look for, POP, window sticker, or build sheet, what would it really hurt by having "REPRODUCTION" across reproduced paperwork? If you have one of the aforementioned pieces of original paperwork, it shouldn't make a bit of difference. Sure, say, having a window sticker reproduced is nice to have and looks good with any other original documents. You're just having a document replaced, represented. My Caprice doesn't have any paperwork. All physical indicators say it is, what it is. But if I had paperwork made to show with the car I sure would want "REPRODUCTION" across it. If I sold it I wouldn't want it going out with paperwork that somebody could misrepresent it with down the road.

I wouldn't have a problem with an indication of repro. I have the orig. window sticker that I want to have a copy of due to its delicate condition. It would be nice to have the copy laminated for display.

A higher end color photo copy of your WS that you make yourself will look stunning. You may just set yourself up for a firestorm of controversy when you sell your car and there is a very good repro floating around. Which one is real and why would there be a repro floating around if in fact there is an original one? Not worth going down that path, IMHO.

I bought a repro window sticker and laminated it so there would be no question that it's not original. No aging etc to try to mislead someone. I don't believe the one I have would need to say "repro" because anyone that matters would know immediately.

A friend attending Mecum Indy sent photos of two "window stickers." Both are reproductions with obvious errors.

N647976 is noted on the signage as "Original Window Sticker".

N565875 is attached to the car; no mention of it being a reproduction.

This is exactly the problem with fake paperwork.

Default N647976 Window sticker

Interesting description on N647976, 3 owner? It was owned in NY with an Alabama title and later was owned in FL. It was for sale on Camaros.net in FL about 5 or so years ago for an unusually low price of $85k for such a loaded Canadian Copo? That would be at least 3 owners in the last 10 or so years??

Some people go nutz when they see a trim tag on ebay [God forbid a vin tag] ...or a re-stamped anything...I mean like 'call the cops' ...

but maybe think nothing of getting patina-ized paperwork that is meant to do nothing but deceive.

The line gets drawn all over the place depending on who is holding the pencil...

Default WS's

I don't see any links to these pics or to any pages, I'd look to these these window stickers.

I think the window stickers, car shipper forms and other docs that Paul reproduces are cool novelty items to have with your car. I agree that people should not be passing them off as original.

But unfortunately these things happen..
