Number Plate Design & Production Software

LG Plates software helps with oblong number plate layout compliance in Pro Number Plate Systems

Each Pro system comes with our legal software suite, its features simplify and streamline number plate design while still remaining compliant with BSAU145d.

Using LG Plates to design a road legal number plate is straight forward. Built in templates automatically fulfill requirements for registration placement, font type, size and spacing.

Changing number plate size means the software automatically adjusts the registration’s layout so it remains compliant.

Optional design choices allow the selection of side badges, coach lines and supplier logos, all of which can be in colour to match branding.

LG Plates comes with an integrated number plate builder

LG Plates has a plates builder to hold all design options in one accessible location. A text field is used to enter the registration number with check boxes largely used for optional choices, with only legally compliant options available. Operators can choose between a text or image supplier identifier and include a coach line. Supported plate templates enable the use of lip images and allow changing with the lip background in the preview panel. Comma separating registration numbers allows batch runs to be processed for faster production.

LG Plates now comes with a working RNPS recording facility

LG Plates also comes with an integrated RNPS Log facility to help suppliers keep accurate records of all the plates they’ve made. Cycling through the content tabs allows users to input their sales information along with the customer proofs and the number plates details. This extra feature can be deactivated and turned-off for organisations that have their own recording systems.

Signs & Custom Plate Design Software

Pro systems include our signs software, which enhances the base features of our plates software but removes restrictions. This permits users to produce designs that aren’t just road legal number plates.

Operators can take advantage of this freedom and create complex designs for vehicle signs, as well as classic, custom and an array of shaped plates.

A range of safety signs are included with our LG Signs software

Keeping our familiar interface and user friendliness, LG Signs comes with the designs and assets for a full range of health & safety, office and way finding signs. This unique software even allows users to personalise designs to make fun signs for special occasions and gifts.

Modern LED Printers

These systems include modified graphic arts printers for their high volume, media handling and colour capability. This combination allows operators to use film or reflective media and unlocks production of any number plate size.

Fed with single sheets via the side multipurpose tray, they produce ultra high definition number plates and provide an extreme performance that’s perfect for anyone looking to move to the next level.

Matched Media

A Premium Jig and Roller with film number plate media being assembled

Pro number plate systems can use either of our blank plate media systems. The film system makes number plates by combining a printed clear film sheet with a rigid reflective plate when assembling.

The reflective system pairs printed a reflective sheet with clear acrylic face. Using reflective media with a Pro system offers a higher quality finish than any thermal system and allows the use of a full colour palette.

Both media systems use matched media, this is where pairs of components are combined together to make a number plate that meets the British Standard.

Our Pro Number Plate Systems

Each Pro system comes with our full software suite already installed on a laptop along with a fully licenced operating system. Any USB printer cables are also provided with a sample pack of our plate and sign media to get production started. The modified graphic arts printer from OKI comes with a bottom paper tray and cabinet with wheeled castor base. And the printer will have settings configured for our blank number plate media.

Operating Conditions

These are precision machines that require certain environmental conditions are met for the best production results. Both printers and blank media will need placing in a location free from excessive dust or grease and kept away from condensation. Place the printer on a flat static free surface in a room with a temperature between 10 – 32 °C and a maximum relative humidity of 60%. Ensuring adequate clearance around the device for its trays to be fully opened should provide enough space for ventilation. Conditions out side these ranges will effect print quality and finish.

Our printers have modifications designed for specific number plate media and original manufacturer toners. Their settings require this predictability to function correctly, using other brands introduces elements we can't predict or control. Using non-approved media and consumables can result in registrations not being the correct opacity or prints not bonding with the media surface. Both these issues can affect the legality of a finished number plate.

Pro Series Printers require manufacturers genuine toner to make BSAU145D compliant plates.
