Design & Production Software

Trade Number Plate Systems have software to help you with layout compliance

Each Trade system comes with our legal number plate software suite, boasting features that simplify and streamline plate design while remaining standards compliant.

Design is straight forward, built in templates automatically fulfil the legal requirements for text placement, font type, size and spacing.

Change plate size and the software automatically adjusts the layout so it remains compliant.

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

Our software helps with compliance whatever plate layout is selected
The software has an integrated plate builder which only has legal options

The software's plates builder holds all the design options in one accessible location. A text field accepts registration numbers with check boxes for optional elements, with only legally compliant design options available.

The software also has a RNPS Log for storing number plate and customer details

It also comes with an integrated RNPS Log facility to help suppliers keep accurate records of all the plates they’ve made. Users can input their sales information along with the customer proofs and any number plates details.

LG Signs Software

Trade systems using film printing are also compatible with our LG Signs software. Upgrade and use it to make custom vehicle signs, classic plates and an array of shaped plates for models which have a unique size.

Modern Printers

OKI C532 Printers are used for our Trade Number Plate Systems

These systems use modified OKI printers specifically configured to produce number plates. We believe these modern machines offer the largest range of capability, especially when printing onto clear film.

Optionally they can print onto reflective sheets, providing the same lean operation of a thermal system but with higher volume and definition.

Plate Media

Trade number plate systems are designed for film printing, which offers colour branding opportunities. Plates are printed onto clear film which should be combined with a rigid reflective plate.

Alternately they can print onto reflective sheets, providing similar performance to thermal systems but with better reliability. Whatever media is used, our matched components gives number plates the reflectivity, rigidity and durability the standards require.

Our Trade Number Plate Systems

Each system comes with our legal plate builder software, any power and USB cables, the modified printer also includes a media feed tray. The Trade system has free installation and operator training, along with a support package tailored for suppliers.

Operating Conditions

These precision machines require certain conditions for the best production results. Both the printer and blank media will need placing in a location free from excessive dust or grease and kept away from condensation. The printer needs to on a flat surface in a room with a temperature between 10 – 32 °C and with a maximum relative humidity of 60%. Operating in conditions out side of this can effect the printing quality and finish.

Their printers have settings designed for specific media and original manufacturer toners. Their settings require this predictability to function correctly. Using any other brand can affect print quality and that may reduce the legality of a finished plate.

Trade Series Printers require genuine consumables be used to produce BSAU145d compliant plates.
