Produce Custom Number Plates On Demand

Matched Components

To produce a road-legal number plate, you must join specific matched components together. Moreover the components you use depends on the printer & media you print onto. Only by following our specified constructions, will your number plates be compliant with British Standards and our certification.

Film Plates – Scope LED Printer
We specify our Scope LED solution makes printed Film Plates. Here you print directly onto our clear film sheets, which are coated with a bonding agent. And then you laminate it on top a reflective abs plate, so it meets the regulations.

3-Part Plates – Scope LED Printer
Of course printing onto film also allows you to make 3-Part Plates. This means laminating your printed film between an acrylic face and wet reflective. As a result your plates are suitable for True 3D Digits.

Reflective Plates – Optima Thermal Printer
Whereas our Optima Thermal solution makes 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. Which also makes it a compatible construction for our True 3D Digits.

Custom Plate Options

Because our Trade solutions have a greater range, you inherit more customisation options. To start there’s the scope’s colour capacity, which you can use to print side badges & borders. Or use the bottom line area to match your number plates to business branding, using colour and fonts.

Whereas both solutions can make shaped number plates. Which involves trimming your oversized printed sheet to match a shaped backing plate or face. Finally we offer a selection of pre-printed components, for Green ZEV Plates or with bespoke colour elements.
