Connecticut License Plates

The state of Connecticut began issuing motor vehicle license plates in 1905 and the letter C was followed by a number.  From 1905 through 1916, Connecticut license plates were porcelain.  In the middle of 1905, there were 3,000 vehicles registered in Connecticut and plates were issued in pairs.  Between 1914 and 1956, Connecticut license plates had an embossing or metal cut-out of the year.  The first multi-year license plates were issued in 1937 and continued until 1947 and were validated with metal tabs. 

The first slogan "CONSTITUTION STATE" was embossed on Connecticut license plates in 1974 and continues today as a screen print on bottom of plate.   Graphics on Connecticut license plates are rare and only modern license plates contain some screen printed designs of varied color shades with Connecticut, Constitution State and the map of the state were screen printed.  The license plates of Connecticut are utilitarian and the design rarely changed.  Connecticut introduced reflective aluminum license plates with black imprint in 1948.  In 1974 Connecticut’s license plates were blue on reflective white.  However, the state changed to a reflective white  on blue in 1976 and this lasted until 2000.  The use of reflective white numbers was achieved with glass beads.

I had seen this website about 6 months ago prior to purchasing my 2009 VW Jetta. When I finally bought the car I slowly started modifying it: 15" Kicker sub in a ported box, HID lights, smoked taillights, clear sidemarkers, and even a 2" shorty antenna. After debating with myself whether to make the purchase or not I finally gave in and ordered my German license plate with the Universal Holder. About a business week later the plates arrived and I was nervous & anxious to see how they had turned out...the product AMAZING! I still can't believe I only paid $36 for these plates that could easily have been sold for $150. The quality is top-notch and installation took about 5 minutes total. THANK YOU FOR HAVING SUCH GREAT PRODUCTS. I will definitely be recommending you guys.

Jason - Columbus, Ohio

I got your plates today. Wow, they are fantastic! They look very professionally done and the color matches perfectly. I couldn't ask for any better. It was done exactly as I had drawn it up. Hats off to you.If you twisted my arm and forced me to say anything less than "perfection" I'd say I wouldn't mind if the metal were twice () as thick. It does seem a bit thinner than what I had expected.These custom plates rock! Thanks a bunch. :)Jason
