Reliable Number Plate Solutions for Your Pre-Sales Team or Workshop

Some of the most respected dealerships and service centres in the UK run our core number plate printing solutions. Operating in a fast-paced and precise industry, they require reliable systems fit for purpose. By the same token, they expect their number plates to be of a similar high standard.

For this reason we developed our Prime and Premier Series. Which will print a legal number plate every few seconds, even in a workshop. Thanks to simple but robust printers and our standards compliant software. Yet this simplicity delivers savings for both your production & supply costs. And because each business is unique, you can tailor them to fit your needs. For faster output or high volume, try upgrading to roll-fed printers.

Prime Series

The Prime Series prints oblong number plates using a compact thermal printer. Capable of taking single sheets or small rolls, it’s a simple but robust machine. Which makes it ideal for use in cooler locations like a workshop office. And it lowers your maintenance costs, thanks to having just one 300m ribbon to replace.

Make British Standard Compliant Number Plates

Matched Components

To produce a road-legal number plate, you must join specific matched components together. Only by following our specified constructions, will your number plates be compliant with British Standards and our 145e certification.

Reflective Plates – Prime & Premier Thermal Printers
We specify our Core thermal solutions to make printed Reflective Plates. Here you print directly onto our dry white or yellow reflective components. And then you laminate it underneath a 3mm clear acrylic face, to protect it and meet the regulations. Which also makes it a compatible construction for our True 3D Digits.

Additional Services

Because our core solutions only produce oblong number plates, we offer a range of extra options. To start there’s our Made Up Plates service, which you can use to cover other sizes and shapes. Or you can brand your plates to match your business, using lips and pre-printed reflective.

Finally there’s our technical support services, Which mix a cost-effective balance of remote and on-site support. Moreover each of our solutions comes with a user guide for the printer and software. And you can find digital versions for our Software, Prime & Premier solutions on our Knowledge Base.
