A Question about the License Plates
Posted: Saturday, August 17, 2019 10:20:59 PM
As I'm not from the U.S. and don't know exactly how they work, do the pictures we make for the license plates actually show, or are they hidden by the actual numbers? I assumed they were just frames for the actual number plates themselves to be slotted in them, but it doesn't look like that??

The frame license plates are frames... so they surround the license plate number. Like this:

The full cover is for the front of the car.
But some states require you to have your number on both front and back. (Luckily not my state.)

License plates do sell, not often but they do.

They're for places that allow placement on the front of the car.

Surprisingly, I have been seeing a lot of the frames sell.

My state--New York--doesn't allow the license plates, but somehow I missed the fact that Zazzle sells the frames. Have they ever put either the plates or frames on the home page?

your guess is as good as mine, I don't remember ever seeing them there.

Many people also use the PLATES as wall decor or door signs, etc.

Can people in the states where the plates are illegal nevertheless purchase them for the things you've mentioned?

Of course - they aren't illegal to posses...they aren't even really illegal to put on your car, you just have to have the proper plates as well. If it weren't so, then dealer would not be able to put those cardboard advertisements into your plate holders while you are waiting to get your permanent ones.

NYS dealers use real license plates, so maybe it’s even more strict here. Regardless, I wonder how many customers might exist for plates not destined for their vehicles.

Many thanks for all the replies! You've been a big help. Roses

We require two plates out here too, but I sometimes see decorative ones on things that aren’t road legal here but have holders because in some places they are - like golf carts and OVRs.

I didn't even realize Zazzle had the plates. I've designed a couple of the frames. Need to make some plates with some of my Arizona photos, as they can be put on the front of the car in AZ. Here's a frame I designed that I recently sold 3 of to one customer recently.

License plates are not just used on cars, see these pixabay photo:

  • Those aren't quite the same thing since, particularly in the second photo, we're seeing a license plate collector's collection. The first image does show some not-official plates, but they're all likely "found" plates, not the sort a person would buy on Zazzle and then nail to a fence.

    Esp the "I heart truck" is one a truck lover would buy.
    And on the fence are event plates and that is a possible niche to focus on

    Yes, I'm aware that on the garden fence most likely are license plates from retired trucks.

    And the pub most likely had some connection to a junk yard and picked a bunch of license plates from their to decorate his bar ceiling.

    It still demonstrates that license plate are used to decorate a room and that is something you can pick up on in advertizing license plates so you offer them as mix in with the retired license plates for more interest and to fill in gaps.

    Happy

    Guess I should design some even though in my state even the frames are illegal as they cover the county name on a plate and that is not allowed. I have seem license plate collectors at antique and flea markets but those are normally actually used vintage plates. I saw one on a child's wagon the other day so I guess I could possibly sell a few.

    In addition to the frames I sell here I have also sold several antique real license plates to collectors on eBay. Old beat up rusty ones too!

    But they can be restored and they put them on their old cars or hang them in their man caves, garages etc.
