Number Plate Printing

from Tennants UK


Our Number Plate Printing division provides solutions that are among the most innovative in their sector, helping suppliers to evolve and improve. We created the first colour number plate printer and now, we are market leaders in complete number plate solutions. Our systems, media and software are interdependent, functioning together to make number plates that meet BSAU 145d regulations.


Using the ethos of simplicity we design our products to automate wherever possible, to be interdependent and function together. Suppliers using our systems can be assured they’re making BSAU145d compliant number plates. Our production software automatically meets any layout requirements. We offer a choice of print media system, film or reflective, with printers modified for that specific blank media. And we supply matched media components, paired together to ensure finished plates are compliant with British Standards.

Making Number Plates Is Easy

Design, Print & Assemble

Easy... Because the hard work's already been done

Modern number plates have legal requirements for plate layout and construction. We check each component of our solutions so they meet and exceed those requirements. Our processes and end products are checked extensively in-house using our Test Lab before we submit them for third party accreditation.


Our software ensures that number plate designs are compliant for composition. All the elements must be in the right place, spaced accordingly and include relevant details before they can be printed.


Our modified printers are altered so they print consistently on a specific media type. They put down the right amount of toner to ensure correct colour and opacity regardless of plate size.


Our number plate media systems are matched components, so when assembled together they make a composite that meets reflectivity, durability and longevity requirements.

Our systems represent a complete solution to number plate production. They offer a streamlined design process, choices on colour capability and an assurance on compliancy. If you are interested in seeing any of our systems in action, fill in our number plates contact form below and request a demonstration.
