American Number Plates
All american metal pressed plates are classed as showplates and are for off-road use only. Please note Due to a change in British legislation, all showplates are now manufactured and despatched from our office in Co. Wexford, Southern Ireland.
Here at Craigsplates, we have a passion for American number plates and after attending many American car shows, and numerous visits to the U.S. we decided it was time to start making traditional American number plates. We will give you as much information as possible before you purchase your American sized license plates from us. You need to know the law, and what we can make for you at present.
Unlike most cars, the American car has the space to fit one size number plate, ie 12" x 6". This size plate is on EVERY American car and truck in the States. All States (with the exception of Delaware and Nebraska) have die pressed plates, where the letter is pressed through the aluminium plate and then the raised surface of the plate is painted. Most States use blue letters, but other states use black, red, green and even white paint on their plates. Most States plates are still made inside penitentiaries by inmates.
At American Number Plates we use the latest high-tech equipment to design, build and manufacture your number plate. All our plates are manufactured using the American style font (Connecticut at 65mm). These plates are embossed on a 25 ton press, and then hot foiled with the colour of your choice, which is normally black. The plates we keep in stock are white and yellow reflective 12" x 6" and lemon yellow for the rear (non-reflective) together with black for older cars. We also now keep in stock replica state plates from Arizona, California , Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, and New York. Also in stock are - Florida, North Carolina and Texas! A must have is our USA Stars and Stripes plate, which looks great with a name on, perfect for your motor home, R.V. or just as a gift! As of yet we do not make metal USA bike plates. However we are able to make them in Acrylic.
