I just passed my Tech exam and am still waiting on my new license to appear in the ULS. I might get a vanity, I don't know yet. I've looked at the list of available 1x3's on N4MC's Vanity HQ and wouldn't mind having one that is simple or easily pronounced. I am going on to get my General and Extra Class. I think if you want a vanity sign, it would make sense to get one early before you start making tons of contacts, have QSL cards made, etc.
