Making number plates with Tennants is simple. Design, Print & Assemble

Our software recognises and has settings for over a hundred different number plate sizes. And our printers are modified with settings specifically written for our coated film or reflective.

Our Number Plate Media Range

Our Printers Need Our Number Plate Media

Our clear film is coated with a substrate that allows prints to bond with its surface, meaning either side is printable. Tennants reflective can be used with both our LED or Thermal printers and performs perfectly on both. Shaped plates can be produced by using over-sized media which is then trimmed down. Printing onto film allows a greater range of colours to be used in designs, as opposed to using reflective.

We offer matched number plate components, which we test to ensure that when they’re assembled the plates conform to BSAU145d regulations.

We provide more choice for suppliers, whether they’re using reflective or film printing
