Custom Embossed License Plates — Silver or Gold, Designed Free

Item #40033: 12x6”, Spot-Color

Item #40034: 12x6”, Full-Color

Note: “Spot-color” is the least expensive printing method, using separate individual colors rather than the full color spectrum.

Diamond-plate embossing available

For painted/textured gold or silver stamped aluminum license plates, see our regular embossed tags, item #40031. We also sell oval and capsule-shaped embossed license plates: see items #40035/#40037.

Standard features

  • High-sheen gold or silver-finish aluminum. Chrome-like surface for the ultimate look of class, but competitively priced.
  • All artwork and lettering embossed. Stamped auto plates with raised letters and artwork enhance the appearance of your tags with vintage appeal. Outer border of license plate is embossed regardless of whether or not there is a printed border, to improve rigidity/ dimensional stability. (Note: if you prefer, entire plate can be flat instead of embossed.)
  • Designed free by our experienced designers in 3 business days, except when art is complex. In other words...
  • No canned designs or crude online layout interface that forces you to design your own license plates even when you can’t or don’t want to. Instead, sit back and our tag designers will tailor a layout for your organization, start from any idea you provide, or simply recreate your previous tag design exactly as is. (Even if you’ve lost your logo artwork and only have a picture.)
  • Long-lasting, rustproof aluminum plates, .024-gauge.
  • Screen-printed with 5 to 7-year non-fade inks. Traditional screen-printing has its competitors these days, but only industrial resin inks have been able to measure up. Make sure you get screen-printed or industrial-resin plates if you want them to last.
  • Select from 50 standard ink colors (ink color chart).
  • Custom/PMS ink color match at no additional charge. Match may not be perfect since screen-printing inks are manufactured for superior fade-resistance and outdoor durability, and use different pigments than Pantone inks for commercial offset press.
  • Colored backgrounds can be printed with ink, using a 1/4” outer unprinted margin, required for tag gripper edge (example).
  • Individual shrink-wrapping of each embossed auto plate included.
  • 4 mounting holes included.
  • No setup fees.

  • Standard production time is 5–7 weeks once you’ve reviewed and approved your plate artwork.
  • Shipping time and cost are extra. See footer area of price chart for shipping weight, shipping point zip code, and carrier used when estimating shipping cost. Or we can figure the cost if you need an exact quote.

Extra-cost options

  • Full-bleed printing available. Call for custom quote.
  • Rush turnaround available if room in our production schedule: 25% extra cost on quantities from 100 to 499 embossed tags, and 20% extra for 500 plates and up. Rush orders must be paid by credit or debit card.

Full-color license plates option

  • Also known as “four-color process” or “CMYK” printing, license plates produced this way use the full color spectrum. (CMYK stands for the four primary colors of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black used in four-color process reproduction.)
  • With gold and silver metallic-finish bla nks, a white base coat must be laid down underneath areas printed with four-color process. See bullet point in bottom area of price chart for extra amount.
  • Exact color cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of process-color printing.

Spot-color vs. full-color pricing: Pricing is shown for up to 3 spot colors, beyond which full-color printing is often required — see far-right chart column. We can print additional spot colors, however, as needed. To save you money, we can convert full-color artwork to spot-color if the style of art would lend itself to that.

  • Price includes individual shrink-wrapping.
  • Inquire for spot-color pricing beyond 3 ink colors. Or, extrapolating from the chart should get you within a penny or two per plate.
  • With gold and silver plate bla nks, a white undercoat may be required beneath bright Pantone colors to successfully print the correct hue, which adds the cost of one spot color to the price.
  • Full-color on gold or silver metallic-finish bla nks always requires a white base coat to be laid down first underneath printed areas. Added cost for the most common quantities is: $0.45/ea. for 100 tags, $0.36 (250), $0.28 (500), $0.22 (1,000), $0.22 (2,500), $0.21 (5,000), $0.21 (10,000).
  • Shipping cost is extra. Shipping weight is 19 lbs. per 100 plates. Ships from zip code 30084 via UPS Ground.

Sales tax: Not charged for states outside Kansas. KS residents other than nonprofits add 6.3% state sales tax, plus your applicable local (city and/or county) rate. For KS nonprofits, an exemption form is required for us to waive tax, which we’ll ask you to furnish.

We can expedite shipping using faster delivery methods at UPS’s usual rates for those services. However, aluminum plates are heavy and non-Ground shipping costs considerably more, so we recommend planning ahead.

We do not profit on shipping, and pass through only UPS’s rates as charged to us, plus our packing materials cost. Included in the shipping rates above is a small but mandatory UPS insurance fee to cover reprinting your order in the event of a lost or damaged shipment.

Prices subject to change without notice. If there has been any change, we will notify you when you first contact us about an order.
