Different Uses For Number Plates

Author : Graham Baylis

When you buy a new car or bike, it automatically comes with its own number plate. This, however, doesn't mean that you can't buy your own to replace it if you want to personalise the number plate. You can even buy number plates for many other different uses. We take you through some of the most common uses for number plates - and a couple of the less common ones.

Of course, the most common use for number plates is on cars and bikes. It's a legal requirement that they all have a unique, legally compliant registration plate. While most people tend to keep the number plate they receive when they buy the car or bike, it is an increasingly popular option to personalise it as long as you stick to the guidelines. Using a professional number plate company to personalise your plate is the best way to do this as you'll be able to receive advice on what you are and aren't allowed to put on certain plates. You can choose from different sized plates so you can be certain that the one you choose will fit the vehicle it'll be installed on.

It's also common to buy replacement number plates as they can fall off your car if, for example, you have a crash, or else they become dented so it's impossible to read them. If this is the case, then it's fairly straightforward to get new number plates printed, perhaps using one of the many license plate printers that advertise on the web?

As well as number plates that are used to display the vehicle registration number of cars and bikes, they can also be used for alternative purposes. Often this means that they're used for show rather than as a legal requirement, which means it's possible to get a much greater array of designs and plates to suit your purposes. For example, you could buy a number plate printed with your name (or your kids' names) to hang on a bedroom door as a quirky, alternative name sign. They can also be hung up as house name plates, perhaps having a little message or interesting words printed on them. Here, you could choose to go for a classic black and white metal plate to make a striking aesthetic statement.

It's also a cute, quirky idea to get some alternative designs of number plates to display in a bar or roadside café. There are some great designs available, from football team logos to different kinds of alcohol to animals and different makes of car. They can be a great alternative to traditional artwork as they're easy to keep clean, durable and can easily be moved around if you're moving premises or just fancy a change of décor. Choosing an interesting background to your novelty number plate is a great way of highlighting whatever word or number you choose to have printed on it. It adds a personal touch and adds a bit of fun to merchandise that we normally associate with legal requirements.

As well as looking great, these sorts of number plates are available for very reasonable prices, meaning they're much more cost effective than a lot of artwork and so buying some is a great idea if you're looking to brighten up your home or business in an interesting and unusual manner.
