Check it out! You can now star your Texas license plate (is that like 'favoring' a Tweet?).

According to a release from My Plates, an official vendor for the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, the Department of Motor Vehicles board recently approved the addition of a new star symbol as an option on all personalized specialty license plates in the state of Texas.

This new symbol will be offered in addition to existing symbols that include the Texas silhouette, heart, period and dash. Since November 2009, Texans have purchased more than 214,000 My Plates, putting more than 27 million dollars in the general revenue fund, which helps pay for services for all Texans.

The pictures on this page depict some of the designs and templates that are available for Texas license plates.
