Custom Dealership License Plates

We offer an array of different Custom License Plate materials, thicknesses, and printing techniques to suit the needs of many different applications. Our goal is to offer the most comprehensive selection of imprinted license plates at the most competitive prices possible.

When you require full color printing, many-color printing, or small quantities of imprinted license plates, digital printing is the most cost effective option. All digitally printed plates are finished with a clear coat to protect the image from the environment. Digital printing requires no screens or plates, so there is no setup charge.

When one or two color imprints are needed or large quantities are being ordered, screen printing is the most effective technique. Screen printing offers the most durability as well as the sharpest image quality. A one-time setup charge is required with screen printing to prepare the screen.

Offset printing is used when large quantities are being ordered with a multiple color imprint. This technique is not quite as sharp as screen printing, but it is more durable and provides a sharper image then digital printing.

3-D raised plastic frames are made from polystyrene and are used when customers are looking for something a little bit more impressive.

Aluminum License plates are universally recognized as the most impressive as they offer the best ink adherence since they have a baked-in imprint. These are available in flat or embossed plates for applications where a high-perceived-value product is required.

Finally, cardboard plates are used when dealerships require a 30-day temporary plate and the budget dictates that you are looking for the least expensive imprinted license plate possible. These do come with a polyurethane coating, but are not meant to last more than 30 days.

We also offer a full selection of imprinted Motorcycle plates in digitally printed polyethylene, styrene, and cardboard plates, as well as polyethylene backing plates.

We have been in this industry for over 30 years and would love to help you find the perfect license pate for your application. Please feel free to reach out to us by phone, chat, or email, and we will be happy to help your vision become a reality.

Printed license plates serve many purposes

Custom printed license plates can serve a variety of purposes. The most popular use is for auto dealerships to use as a promotional tool while the vehicle is on the lot; In states where a front license plate is not required, dealers will leave the license plate printed with their company name, logo, and information on the front of the vehicle when it is sold in the hopes that the customer will leave it on to serve as a promotional tool for the dealership. We also sell imprinted license plates for a variety of other applications including schools, historical societies, clubs, organizations, sports teams, and much more. Many schools and sports teams will purchase license plates printed with their logo/message and then sell them to supporters to raise money. Other organizations will distribute them to donors or members. A license can serve a similar purpose as a bumper sticker in promoting a cause, organization, or message that is important to the vehicle owner. When using a license plate to promote a meaningful message, customers will usually choose a plate with a higher perceived value such as an aluminum plate or a custom molded plastic plate. If you operate a fleet of vehicles, a license plate printed with your company name can also be used to easily identify your business' vehicles.

Artwork & Design Considerations

  • Will you be using your custom license plate with a license plate frame? If so, make sure to leave the necessary room around the edge of the plate to accommodate your frame. Likewise, if you are using a frame you would not want to have a border around the edge of your plate.
  • If you choose a screen printed license plate, we will require vector artwork. If you do not have vector artwork, please email us your artwork and we will evaluate the feasibility; In many cases we can convert your artwork to usable vector art for free. When ordering digitally printed plates, we can print from a very high resolution raster image such as a .png or .jpg file or a vector file. It is always a good idea to reach out to us before placing your order to make sure your art is feasible; If we have any questions about your artwork after you place your order, we will contact you before charging your account.
