Our plates are the best on the market. They are superior in every way – not just a sales line – a FACT!

Our pressed metal number plates are produced by hydraulic machinery that has been precision manufactured in Germany and with raw materials originating from Germany. The capital investment needed for such machinery was obviously huge, but our business strategy is to build a reputation based upon A1 rated superior products, and we want customers to know that everything we sell is exceptional.

The system works by machines pressing the plates to within a 1% pressure bar. The exposed raw plates are fed through another machine which burns hot foil onto the protruding letters at over 200 degrees. Then they are cooled. It is this process which makes them highly durable. This production method is used by state departments and Governments worldwide as well as in Germany and other European countries.

All of our machinery and associated supplies are from Germany; we do not scrimp on costs. The registration plates are German made with 3M endorsement! 3M is the most expensive and best material approved for the distribution market. You won’t find a more durable pressed metal number plate – ours can even withstand a close-up jetwash attack.

We do not use the manual press method because it involves two layer plates, which, in reality, translates to a plate covered with a coloured, sticky vinyl placed on top! The letters are pressed through, and the tops peeled off to reveal the black colouring underneath. Over a period, the vinyl around the letters will peel. Don’t even think about getting these types of plates near a jetwash when cleaning your car! The timescale of natural deterioration depends on weather conditions but we are sure you don’t want to buy a new set of plates every few months!

There are other problems with manually pressed plates. Small unavoidable air bubbles often appear under the vinyl when the later is applied. The lettering is held using a square block when run through the press. Invariably a silhouette outline will be visible.

Our hydraulically pressed metal number plates suffer none of those problems


We can now also confirm that we are able to product pressed metal number plates for motorbikes! And if you’re looking for number plates that have that popping look, but you these plates just don’t do it for you, then take a look at our 4D laser cut plates
