Making Number Plates Is Easy

With our systems making number plates is a simple matter of printing a design and combining it with rigid backing or face.

Modern number plates have legal requirements that cover both layout and construction. We make suppliers life’s easier by ensuring the plates they make exceed those requirements. Finished plates made with our number plate systems are checked extensively before we submit them for third party accreditation.

Our number plate systems are designed to provide user friendly production and an ease of mind on British Standards compliance.


Our software ensures that plate designs are compliant for composition. All 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.
