FAQ 

Will my novelty plates be of high quality?

All show number plates are quality inspected and must meet a 'high quality' standard before despatched. So be assured, you're in good hands.

I can't find my plate size. Do you stock other sizes of number plates other than the ones on your website?

If you find that your required number plate size is not listed on our site, please contact us as we may be able to get the size custom made for you. That way you can have a unique sized novelty show plate.

Is it safe for me enter my credit card details to buy my plates through your site?

Absolutely! We use PayPal as our safe and secure checkout which means we do not see or store any of your details. So be confident on buying your show plates through ourselves.

Will my show plates arrive pre drilled?

No, novelty show plates will not come pre drilled. This is because we can never get the mounting holes correct as every car has holes for screws in different positions and only you, the buyer would know the exact positions of the holes to drill into your new number plates by using your old plates as a guide. Please view 'Fitting' page for more info.

Am I buying a registration if I buy a set of these plates?

No, we supply the actual novelty plates which are made from number plate material. These plates are only for names or messages and not registration numbers. If you type in a Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) your order will be cancelled. We do not sell registration numbers.

Can I cancel my order at anytime?

No. This is because from the moment you buy your show plates, we begin to process your order. As this is a bespoke, made to specification item, it cannot be re-sold. If you require information, or are unsure about anything, please contact us before hand as once your payment is processed, refunds cannot be made.

Yes we ship show plates internationally. Please make sure you select an international postal charge at checkout before completing your order to ensure quick despatch.

Can I use show plates on a road going car?

No. This is because novelty show plates are designed on the basis of being for show use only, such as for signs, bedroom door names, motorshows or any other off road use.

Also, if you are after something truly unique, then we can send over a design based upon your requirements.

What show number plate colour do you recommend for a sign plate?

We suggest using any white(front) show plate to design your sign plate as this correctly resembles a sign and also you design features (such as blue text) will show best on a white (front) plate. The yellow show plate will make certain colours appear darker such as the colour blue if selected for the text colour or border, will appear darker on a yellow show plate.

Do you offer legal styled replacement number plates?

Currently we do not offer number plates that contain a VRM to be purchased online as the DVLA laws state that we must see physical proof of registration number ownership and customer I.D. Many online retailers are accepting digital copies, however this is not legal and we choose not to do this. However you can visit Klick Plates for road legal number plates if you are close to the Leeds/Bradford area. 

What is the difference between show plates and number plates?

Show plates are made from the same high quality materials as number plates, however number plates can be used on the road and show plates are for text, such as words or messages.

Are your show number plates reflective?
