Where are show plates normally displayed?

You can display your show plates pretty much anywhere as long as you don’t use them on public roads. It’s common for people to add show plates to classic cars that they show off at special events and to display them during vintage vehicle restoration competitions to give them an edge over their competitors. The host of customisation options available makes it easy to make your plates truly distinctive and stand out from the competition.

Some of the things you’re most likely to see show plates used for are:

Selling new and used cars: Many people add show plates to their cars when they put them on the market. A pair of show plates can encourage buyers to choose your vehicle over others even when they are considering purchasing a range of other vehicles. Show plates are used not only by private sellers but in new and second-hand car showrooms too. They can be the difference between a car being sold quickly and it sitting on your drive for several months.

High-profile events: If your car is your pride and joy and you regularly show it off at events, it makes perfect sense to invest in show plates. If you have restored a classic car and have entered it into a competition, you can add show plates to wow the judges and get a real edge over the other entrants. Your plates can help you add that vital finishing touch that makes all the difference.

Marketing purposes: Show plates are ideal for brand promotions. Companies from all kinds of sectors use show plates to promote their products, services and competitions. Organisations like newspapers, magazines and radio stations frequently offer up cars as the big prize in their competitions, which in turn help them raise awareness of their brands and improve engagement. They often add the name of their companies to their plates.

Decorative purposes: It’s not uncommon to see show plates on the walls of homes and offices. Show plates make a great talking point when entertaining guests and are an ideal purchase for keen motoring fans.

Enhancing the look of vehicles: Show plates are added not only to cars but vehicles like quad, bikes, scooters, boats and more. As long as you are not displaying your plates on a public highway or public land, you can use them pretty much anywhere.

As gifts: It’s very common for people to buy show plates as gifts for friends, family members and business associates. When you design a show plate, you can easily personalise it to give it meaning. Our show plate maker enables you to make your plates extra special and design a gift that your recipient can cherish forever. Some people even design show plates and hand them to couples as wedding gifts, adding the names of the newlyweds as well as special slogans.

Why do so many people choose Show Plates Factory?

People opt for our plates for all kinds of reasons. In the past, it was so much more difficult and time-consuming to obtain bespoke show plates. However, the internet and Show Plates Factory have made things so much more straightforward. You don’t need to leave the comfort of your own home to design and obtain your plates, and you can order them from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection available to you.


Save your money

We have become renowned for our low prices. You can save up to 50% on what the leading High Street brands will charge you when you buy show plates from Show Plates Factory. Our relatively low overheads and lack of call centre enable us to make substantial savings and pass them onto you in the form of some of the best prices you’ll be offered anywhere. We don’t have a physical store and run an automated service, with our online plate maker allowing you to take your time when designing your plates. This also means you don’t need to go through the fuss and stress of explaining your show plate designs to us over the phone. Our low overheads mean we are able to use British Standard approved acrylic without charging you the earth for our plates. You can rest assured that your plates won’t crack, fade in the sun or crack with ease.

How can I check the quality of my current plates?

If you’re wondering whether your existing plates meet our high standards, take a look at the bottom right of them. If you don’t see the number BS AU 145 D, chances are the acrylic your plate is made from didn’t undergo robust stress and durability testing and won’t meet retro-reflectivity standards. The plates we manufacture all meet the British Standard and have met all the relevant expectations during stress and durability testing.
