This knowledge base article has a guide on printing number plates using our LG Plates software. Showing you how to print single, paired or even bulk print a list of number plates.
Print a Number Plate
Our legal number plate software, LG Plates, makes printing number plates as simple as possible. Thus helping our customers to supply perfect number plates every time. By splitting the design into elements you can quickly build a plate, and then select what to print.
Single number plates are the simplest job to print. Once you’ve set up the number plate design complete with registration number, you can either click the Print Icon on Icons Bar. Or use the File Menu and the print command located there.
To Reverse Print a design you’ll need to select its checkbox or Icon before printing the plate. When reverse printing is active, the design preview is mirrored to reflect the selection. Reverse printing is usually used with Film & Plate components.
Just like reverse printing, to Print a Pair of plates simply requires selecting the option on the plates builder. Just tick the checkbox or select the Icon highlighted on the image above. Now when you print out your design, two copies will be produced. But remember to get the printer and your components ready first.
When Bulk Printing number plates, you simply enter each number into the Registration box and Comma Separate them. This way you can paste from other files, such as word, excel, text or even from email.
All of the printing options shown in the sections above can be used to bulk print. Any invalid registrations will be flagged in the notification box. And a pop-up will alert you to them when you try to print. Which help to ensure you only produce legal number plates.
Using Dual Printers
This section explains what options to select when printing using Dual Printers, like the two thermal models above. When you opt for one of our two printer systems, our LG Plates software is set up and configured for both of them. Extra options are also displayed on the Icon Bar to help you streamline your production, as seen in the image below.
The extra icons on the right, represent the different printing options now available. In short, you can print a front white plate, a yellow rear plate or print a pair of plates. Of course, you will have to have the correct components into each printer, but our engineer will explain this during installation.
Once you’ve finished setting up your number plate design, click which of the options you require. Dual printing is also compatible with bulk printing number plates. And can be set up to optimise roll-fed components.
