f emblem overlay - where to buy?

I have these on mine and want to order more. I can’t remember where I ordered from and have been all over eBay, but can’t find any. Just wondering if people can advise. Thanks.

2019 forester emblem overlay

Can anybody confirm whether that f emblem overlay fits the '19 forester? Or did the emblem size not change from previous years?? I have my first forester on the way and I want the overlays to be here when it does!

I don't know where else to ask. Thank you!!

If you order from emblemoverlays.com, you specify the year and model of the vehicle. In the case of the '19 Forester, it looks like you also specify if it's Sport trim or not. I just placed an order earlier this week so I hope to have the emblems installed sometime next week. If you're still interested, I can update here at that point with a confirmation of fitment.

My order took a week longer to produce and ship than I was expecting. The rear emblem overlay is not quite right as it's a little narrow side to side. My emails to Pro Stickers (emblemoverlays.com) have gone unanswered. So far, I'm not impressed.

@coregrind Interesting, my experience with them from a customer service perspective was really good. Overlays were good too

I got mine from Orsini. https://orsini-vinyl-designs.myshopify.com/

Unfortunately she is very busy so she normally opens up for new orders 1x a week for about 15 minutes before the orders fill up again. Mine took a week from order to delivery.

@hoshie I found a phone number for them and called. The nice woman I spoke with is getting me hooked up today. I forgot to mention the previous messages as I was distracted by taking actual measurements of my emblem while talking with her. Going forward, I'll just assume that email is not the best means of contact for them.

That has been my exp with them. Their overlays are always just slightly too small. Slightly. Considering they are dark on a dark background though, it isn't very noticeable. Def some room for improvement though.

I did black background. The tail ends of the chrome stars of the original emblem are visible on the left and right edge. I think it’s very noticeable in my case. Hopefully the second version is better.

Oof, yeah, that's not good. Mine were about 1-2mm short on the L/R but with black over the Subie blue background, not too visible.If you could see the stars then, well.... that is a problem, heh. Hope they come around with a better cut for you. :)

@hoshie I picked mine up at:

https://www.jdmfv.com

Fast shipping and a pretty good fit overall.

A week passed after talking to Pro Stickers about my situation so I called and left a voice message. I didn't receive a return call but in a few days after a trip I found an envelope in the mail from them post marked the day after I called. My guess is they forgot to submit the replacement order until my inquiry message. Anyway, the replacement rear emblem overlay with the new dimensions fits much better and I'm happy with it. On the initial order, I also managed to tear one of my center cap overlays. They sent out a replacement for that as well, at no cost. All is good now.
