What are the advantages of having a 3D number plate?
Here are several reasons why choosing a 3D design is advantageous:
- Because these plates are reinforced with acrylic it makes them more durable than standard plates
- The gloss black finish gives any vehicle a sleek look and allows you to showcase your vehicle registration more prominently
- Give your vehicle a unique appearance that will make it stand out from other similar models on the road
Are you looking for show plates?
We are also able to accommodate the demand for 3D show number plates. Our 3D show plates can be customised with non-standardised tinting, spacing and sizing. These plates can be used at events or for promotional purposes. It’s important to note that show plates are not road-legal and cannot be used for daily driving because they do not comply with British Standards.
We also offer additional customisation options such as krystal number plates. Simply select the personalisation options that fit your preferences and add the plates to your basket and checkout.
We make the process to buy show plates easy and ensure a great online shopping experience for all our customers.
What is the difference between 3D gel plates and 4D number plates?
The letters underneath polyurethane gel resin that is used to make 3D license plates is what gives them a slick raised profile and provides a smooth gloss black finish. 4D plates are made with solid acrylic which is laser cut to give the appearance of a flat surface underneath the 3D letters.
At Numero Plates we offer both types of plates and we ensure the highest quality with both products. Which plates you choose to go with depends on your personal preference and taste of how you want your vehicle to look.

6. How are gel number plates made?
There is a 5 part process to make a 3D number plate.
The first part of the process is where you’ll be the most involved. We let you design your 3D plate using our online ordering form and select all the necessary options to make your plates according to your personal preference.
The next part of the process requires us to print and cut legally sized characters.
To remove any bubbles that may be created during the cutting process, all number plate letters are placed into a custom made low heat oven before we remove them to let them cool.
We peel off the high strength 3M adhesive backing once the letters have solidified and place them on your plates.
We then place gel resin over the raised 3D characters and let the resin dry before a final quality check.
We aim to complete this manufacturing process and dispatch your reg plates within 24 hours when you place your order.
7. Why Are Your 3D Plates Priced Considerably Higher Than Other Suppliers?
At Numero Plates we don’t compete on price, we compete on high quality and service. Whilst other manufacturers will lower their prices in order to out-do their competition, we believe this creates a marketplace with sub-par products and sub-par customer service.
