4D Number Plates & Reg Plates Builder

4D number plates are the latest addition to number plate designs. They are made from 3mm black acrylic characters, stuck to our premium acrylic plates using high strength 3M adhesive. As a 4D number plate maker we know the DVLA state that ‘number plates can be 3D’, therefore 4D plates are fully road legal and made to British Standards (BS AU 145d).

Are 4D Number Plates Legal?

Absolutely, the above DVLA state makes 4D number plates legal.  The jet black acrylic characters have been designed and laser cut to match standard Charles Wright Font text with exacting standards. The number plate material that you add this text style to is made to the same British Standards (BS AU 145d) that all legal number plates must adhere to. Get in touch with Number 1 Plates today if you want further information on how our 4D license plates are legal.

What are 4D Number Plates?

The latest addition to number plate text styles, 4D laser cut plates uses acrylic that is configurable to any of your number plate designs. The new raised 4D plate style adds an even more personal and premium feel to your bespoke number plate design.

You can add a different colour to fit underneath which we call 4D Neon, which are referred to in other places as 4D Crystal plates. 3D Plus or 4D Laser Cut Plates are the same product, but go by different names. Need more info about our 4D show plates? Get in touch.

More recently, we have also added 4D Gel Plates and 5mm 4D gel number plates to our collection. The latter are made using the same process as our standard 2mm 4D laser cut number plates, but are made with a strong, durable 5mm thick acrylic.

How much are 4D number plates?

As this is a text style, the final cost of your order can differ. The cost for a standard ABS number plate with the 4D text style would come to £24.99. When you add different plate materials, borders and badges this will increase and decrease accordingly.

Can I buy 4D show plates online?

Yes. You can use our number plate designer to create your own 4D show plates and display them in the garages, on your bedroom wall or on your vehicle at shows or trade stands. Remember though, you will still have to provide documentation for your 4D show plates if they display a road legal registration.
