Arkansas License Plates

Prior to 1911, the only motor vehicle license plates were issued by cities.  The license plates from 1909 to 1911 were made of porcelain.  The first statewide Arkansas license plate was issued in 1911 and these were made of steel.  The first slogan was embossed on Arkansas license plates in 1935 “CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION”.  The 1941 Arkansas license plate had the embossed slogan “OPPORTUNITY LAND” on the bottom.  Then in 1950, the modified slogan was changed to “LAND OF OPPORTUNITY” and was used each year until 1967.  It was not until 1975 that the slogan “LAND OF OPPORTUNITY” was again screen printed on the Arkansas license plates and this continued to 1978.  The slogan “THE NATURAL STATE” was introduced in 1989.

In 1924 and 1925 the outline of the state with letters ARK was embossed on Arkansas license plates.  In 1938 the outline of the state and “38” were embossed on the Arkansas license plates.  The 1914 Arkansas license plate is quite rare.  It is believed that motorists had to turn in the 1914 license plate in order to get the 1915 renewal license plate.  In 1928, 1929, 1930 and 1931, Arkansas license plates had FRONT and REAR embossed on them.  Because of World War II, fiberboard was used in 1944 to save metal for the war effort.

I confirm that I received the plate for my motorcyle. Many thanks to you and the team at Platemeister for the excellent quality of workmanship.You were correct about warning of issues with the postal service in the UK : The UK Post Office here advised me they had sent notification of the item arriving (along with a 'collection code' ) to someone else's address!!!!!. Thankfully the USPS email link 'Endicia' (sent by your colleague Jerome) enabled me to keep close tabs on the delivery stages and to bypass the error made by the UK Post office...

Lanny - Fairview, Oregon

I received the 1947 OREGON STATE LICENSE PLATE--EMBOSSED WITH MY CUSTOM NUMBER BY PRIORITY MAIL ON THURSDAY, MARCH 25th, I am impressed beyond words, looking atthe plate is like being transported back in time to see my late father's 1947 Black Buick RoadMaster, White topped Convertible that had the 380-497 plate, the car was stolen in Portland,and wound up on blocks in a field in Texas, it was beyond recovery, never saw it after that.As I e-mailed earlier, I will be ordering 2 more plates, possibly on Friday March 26th or Monday March 29th. My son will be helping with the ordering, he is more familiar with theprocess of using the computer.
