French term or phrase: Inscrivez-vous
I need to abbreviate "Inscrivez-vous"
I am required to reduce "Inscrivez-vous" by 2 letters. We are thinking of abbreviating as "Inscrvz-vous"

The text is part of an online ad that has very limited number of characters per line.

The full text is "app. Gémoniques/cell. Inscrivez-vous!"

To be used online for French speaking people.

Any thoughts or input is appreciated.
