Then simply place your order online, and once the order is complete, you will receive an email receipt. Then go to our contact page on our website and upload your badge in one of the available formats. A designer will contact you within 24-48 hours with the design for you to approve / amend as necessary. Please note that Send Badge via Email orders do not fall under the same day dispatch and next day delivery methods due to the fact that design and approval is required for each order to ensure you are happy with the design before with manufacture.

Can i order more than 1 or 2 number plates from your website?

Yes you can. On the designer you have the option to choose the quantity you would like for both front and rear sizes. 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, and select 0 for the rear QTY, then add the front plate to your cart. And then click the add more plates button and design the rear plate, and select 0 for the front QTY, then add the rear plate to your cart. This way you can receive a front and rear plate with separate designs by simply adding the front and rear plate to your cart separately.

Can i order just a single plate?

Yes you can, simply change the qty for rear or front to 0 which will in turn give you a single plate.

I cannot find what i am looking for on your designer, can you design me something custom?

Yes, if there is something that you cannot find or complete on our designer and you need specific requirements, please contact us with your requirements and we will come back to you with a price and specification.

Fitting Back to Top

Do you pre drill number plates before sending?

No we do not offer a drilling service as the screw holes on your existing plates range from vehicle to vehicle. If you would like to drill your number plates we highly suggest reading through our fitting page which has all the relevant guides and information on how to drill your number plates correctly.

How many fixing kits will i need to fit my number plates?

The simple rule of thumb is one kit per number plate. One sticky pad kit contains 6 sticky pads which is sufficient to fix one plate to your vehicle. One screw kit contains 4 screws and 2 of each cap which is sufficient to fit 1-2 number plates, depending on how many screws you require. Most number plates are fixed with 2 screws but some are fixed with 4.

Are your sticky pads strong enough to hold a number plate?

Yes absolutely they are made specifically for number plates adhesion. We have sold millions of kits worldwide and they have performed exceptionally.

Can i order accessories through your website without ordering number plates?

Yes fixings can be ordered on their own via this link: Fixings

Do your Tamper Proof fixing kits really work?

Yes they have an excellent record of preventing number plate theft and making it more difficult for someone who is looking to steal your number plates. They work by using a unique button head design which can only be removed with the correct tool which is supplied with the kit. The number plates may still be removed with sheer brute force, but the number plate will most probably crack and damage in the process and make it unusable.

How do the number plate holder's work?

Our number plate holders work by enabling you to insert your number plate in to the holder without the need for drilling or fixing your number plate. You can attach the holder to your bodywork using screws, and then simply push fit your number plate in to the holder without any fixings required. Also if you ever replace or change your number plates they are easily removed.
