^ I remember the old blue and white plates (Empire Blue) being embossed.  Not sure where you saw printed ones, unless they were personalized.

I remember seeing printed ones somewhere along the line.

I'd love just a retro gold-on-blue embossed plate.

Maybe they were. I thought I remember them switching to digitally printed ones, not liking the outcome, and that's why they started being embossed again when they went to the gold empire plates (which all peel). I could be wrong.

The Empire Blue plates were definitely embossed, at least for general issue! I do believe vanity and specialty ones were (and still are) screened however. You may be thinking of Nevada that went to screening only to return to embossing with their current issue. But this is veering far off the Rhode Island topic...

Have there been any updates regarding the Providence-Lincoln resigning project on RI 146?  Funding seemed to have been an issue at last check, but I believe we are in a new fiscal year?

A quick Google search says Rhode Island's fiscal year begins in July, but I don't know how long ago you checked.
