Media Part Systems

for Number Plate Printing

Using our media part systems to make number plates is easy, it is simply a choice between printing on film or reflective. When buying a system from Tenants you will need to know which part system you want the printer to use. Then you simply print on the media that's compatible with your number plate system.

We provide three methods of making plates, this page contains information on each one. Each method is listed with its components and instructions on how they should be combined. We use the 2-part, 3-part and Reflective categories and their Icons when listing our number plate media for purchase. Selecting media with the right Icon quickly ensures its compatibility with your printer.

Note: Printing number plates onto this media requires specialist settings provided only with our modified printers.

2 Part System for Film Printing

2 Part System

for Film Printing

The two part system is when the number plate is printed onto clear film and then stuck to a reflective plate.

2-Part Media Part System for Film Printing

Clear Film

The number plate is printed in reverse on one side of the film sheet. This means the print is protected between the film and reflective when combined.
 

Reflective Plate

This is a rigid plate with reflective on one side and coated with adhesive, this is protected by a removable covering.
 

To Combine

We recommend using a roller jig to combine the parts together.

Start by placing the reflective plate adhesive side up. Bring the film with the printed side towards the reflective on top. Carefully line them up and join one edge together by pulling a small section of the adhesive cover away. Place near the rollers and when feeding through slowly remove the remaining adhesive cover allowing the two parts to bond together.

3 Part System for Film Printing

3 Part System

for Film Printing

The three part system is when the number plate is printed onto clear film which is then sandwiched between a reflective and clear cover.

3 Part System for Film Printing

Acrylic Cover

This is a clear rigid transparent panel with a self adhesive coating protected by a removable cover.
 

Clear Film

The design is printed onto one side of this film, which is then sandwiched between the reflective and acrylic.
 

Reflective Sheet

This is a sheet with reflective on one side, coated with wet adhesive and protected by a removable covering.
 

To Combine

We recommend using a roller jig to combine the media parts together.

First place the reflective adhesive side up and place the film on top. Carefully line them up and join one edge together by pulling a small section of the adhesive cover away. Place this side near the rollers and feed through slowly, pulling away the adhesive covering.

Put this on the jig with the film facing up. Place the acrylic on top, with the self-adhesive facing the film. Once again join the edge together and peel away the remaining adhesive cover when feeding through the rollers.

Carefully line them up and join one edge together by pulling a small section of the adhesive's cover away. Place this side near the rollers and feed through slowly pulling away the adhesive covering.
