TMI Marko Hannula - also known as hannulat.com - is a Finnish company which specialises in the reproduction of printed products such as period car stickers, vehicle identification plates, vintage sponsor stickers and historic rally liveries for restoration projects.
Not even the best body restoration and paint job can compensate for worn or faded stickers. In some cars, the stickers have been totally removed losing the originality desired by the restorer. What about that corroded and faded vehicle identification plate? Would a brand new reproduction item improve the appearence of the engine area?
We use the latest state of the art production methods and computer software to ensure absolute satisfaction with the finished product. We are flexible in being able to respond to an individual customers requirements and we pride ourselves with our dedication to the best in customer service.
Our manufacturing methods rely on having either the original item (sticker or plate) or a good photograph. We can compensate for imperfections in our production processes and our “how to prepare your order” later on in this page describes how to help us to get the very best results for you2
With our experience we are able to faitfully reproduce any printed product for your restoration project with high resolution and matching the original scale while respecting even the smallest details.
A car from the 70’s will typically have dozens of stickers affixed all over the vehicle including some that are not always immediately obvious.
The following examples show the areas of a car where stickers most commonly appear when a car leaves the factory as a shiny new product.
* The manufacturers oil recommendation sticker along with service interval recommendations in the engine bay.
* A sticker on the air cleaner cover informing the owner about air filter maintenance.
* A warning sticker to avoid touching the ignition wires while the engine is running.
* Body paint color code stickers and a tyre pressure reference table can be fitted to the boot or luggage area.
* Window stickers can inform the driver of maximum gear speeds or the presence of child proof door locks.
* The rear window usually displays the original supplying dealer sticker.
Maybe you want your historic rally car to look like the original one from the factory team? Or did your car come with side stripes or other visual enhancements that are no longer available from the manufacturer? That is certainly no problem to us and we are able to equip your pride and joy with any graphic copied from an old or new photograph.
Simple body graphics like stripes around the car can be re-created from a photograph. For more complex graphics (such as the livery from an historic rally car) please provide all of the main car dimensions (such as the width and height of the door, main dimensions of the bonnet, etc).
VIN, Color Code and other owner Warning Plates made of aluminum, brass or steel can become oxidized with some or all of the printed text faded or missing. In a fully restored engine bay, this type of visual degradation can detract from all of the effort and shine applied to the other components.
Our systems can recreate an exact copy of these VIN and other plates to replace the old and worn out original items. The owner can then add their car’s identification numbers as required. Any text, shape and design can be re-produced to the customer’s exact requirements.
The plates are usually manufactured using aluminium plate with a thickness range of 0.5mm to 1.25mm. They usually come finished with a silver or anodized black background but other colours can be ordered. Different materials also used are stainless steel, brass, plastic, polycarbonate, wood and MDF. Virtually any plate from any vehicle over the last 100 years is within our expertise and we would be delighted to help you achieve the final touch with your prized vehicle.
If your instrument pack is faded or off colour we can help with its restoration too. Because of the exacting design and low tolerances in the original manufacturing process it is important to provide exact measurements although best results are obtained by sending the original item to us.
