As standard our number plates do not contain any manufacturer details or writing at the bottom of the number plates.

Number plates are good quality and can be used on the road where as show plates are for off-road use only. Show plates are usually made of inferior quality compared to number plates. We only offer quality number plates.

Can i have my own badge on my number plates?
On the designer choose either the Add Any Badge Via Email with prev option or the Add Any Badge Via Email w/o prev option. Both options are the same except the first option enables you to see a preview from our design team before the plates are manufactured, along with you being able to make alterations before we manufacture your plates. The second option is the same except you will not see a preview, and our design team will add the badge how it is sent over and it will be manufactured straight away. Once you have placed your order just email your badge to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will handle the rest.

Also as soon as your order is placed it will be made so we are unable to cancel.
How will my number plates be packaged?

Larger orders and larger sized plates will be manually wrapped in bubble wrap and wrapped in parcel paper to ensure further security from being damaged in transit.

Yes this is something we specalise in. Certain vehicles such as the Aston Martin DB9, Aston Martin Vanquish, Rover 75/MG ZT, Jaguar X and S Type, Jaguar XJ, Range Rover Sport etc have custom rounded and shaped rear number plates. The standard 520 x 111mm size will fit fine and the majority of customers are happy with this size but we offer all types of custom shaped rear plates for all these vehicles, so if you are looking for a more snug custom fit then please CLICK HERE
Do you offer the translucent TVR Rear number plates?
Yes we do, you can order these online on our designer they are under the rear size option.

Yes as standard our designer will show you the exact previews before purchasing. If you are buying custom plates we will always send you previews for you to confirm, and ensure you are happy with them before we make and dispatch them.
I cannot find what i am looking for on your designer, can you design me something custom?
Yes, we can do anything you require. If there is something that you cannot do on our designer and you need specific requirements, please email us with your requirements and we will come back with a price and information.
On your designer your plates have shaded and lighter bits on the left and top of the plates, will they come like this?
No. Your plates will be the same colour throughout, this is merely done on the designer for appearance.
Do you make number plates for motor bikes and import cars etc?
Yes we offer a number of sizes which are suitable for bikes, cars, vans, trucks, trailers, caravans and much more.
How do i know what size my number plates are?
99% of the time your number plates will be the standard oblong size being 20.5" x 4.4" (520mm x 111mm), but some import cars, 4x4 vehicles, and also motor bikes have different sizes so we always suggest measuring before ordering to be certain. All of the sizes we offer are on our designer page. Please note we will not take responsibility if you order the wrong size.
Do you make metal, black or silver number plates?
No i am afraid we do not offer metal, black or silver number plates we only offer the standard acrylic white and yellow number plates.
Can i order more than 1 or 2 number plates from your website?
Yes you can order as many number plates as you would like. On our designer you have the option to choose the quantity you would like for front and rear and this will adjust the price for you. Also after you have added that order to your cart you can add more number plates, and so on until you wish to checkout and place your order.
Can i order a set of plates and have the front plate a different design to the rear plate?
Yes you can do this by designing the front plate how you like on the designer, and choose for the Qty for rear as 0. Then add the front plate to your cart. And then click the add more plates button and do the same but choose the Qty for front 0 and design your rear plate how you like. This way you can receive a front and rear plate with separate designs.
Do your number plates come with any guarantee?
Yes all number plates come with 12 months guarantee. If you have issues please just email us some photos and we will send them to our quality team to inspect. Please note this guarantee does not include plates that have been drilled for use with screw kits.
How long will my number plates last realistically?
Our number plates will last anywhere from 5-10 years. We make them with such quality and precision that they do not loose quality over time.
Do you pre drill number plates before sending?
No we do not pre drill number plates as the holes are never in the same place on any vehicle. We recommend that you either use our sticky pads which are very strong, only cost £2.49 for a kit and this way you do not have to drill your number plates.
If you do need to drill the number plates we suggest only doing so if they are screwed on to your vehicle at present. All you need to do is put your existing number plate on top of the new one, make markers on the new plate where the holes are, then drill your new number plates and you will have the holes in the exact same place.
How many fixing kits will i need to fit my number plates?
We recommend one sticky pad kit per number plate. This will give you 6 sticky pads per plate and each sticky pad kit costs £2.49. One screw kit costs £2.49 and will be sufficient for 1 number plate as you will receive 4 screws and 6 screw holders (2 white, 2 black, and 2 yellow). We also offer a bulk fixing kit for £5.99 which includes 2 sticky pad kits and 2 screw kits which is extremely good value for money. Please click here for more information on accessories and fitting.
Do you sell registration numbers or personalised number plates?
No we do not. Some people do get confused with this. We only manufacturer the number plates from high quality acrylic, we do not offer cherished or personalised number plates. You will need to go to the DVLA for these.
