Virginia License Plates

 Virginia issued its first license plate in 1906.  These were made of porcelain until 1913.  In 1914, Virginia issued its first license plate made of steel.  All of Virginia’s license plates were dated except for the years: 1906, 1907, 1908 and 1909.  All of Virginia’s license plates issued were very utilitarian with few color changes, slogans and artwork.  In 1976, Virginia issued and optional license plate to celebrate the nation’s Bi-Centennial.  The plate had a screen print of George Washington in the center surrounded by stars.  The slogan "INDEPENDENCE BICENTENNIAL 1776-1976" was screened on the bottom of the license plate.  In 1985, the Great Seal of The State of Virginia was used on optional license plates issued by the state.

Due to World War II, Virginia issued a fiberboard license plate in 1944.  Unlike fiberboard license plates issued by other states, the 1944 Virginia fiberboard license plate was fully embossed.  Virginia license plates were issued in many colors with either white on black, black on white or blue on white being the most common.  Other colors were blue on white, red on white, white on blue, white on red, white on green, dark blue on orange-yellow on blue, yellow orange on black, red on green and black on orange.

In 1971, Virginia introduced its first license plate with retro-reflective white sheeting. This use of retro-reflective sheeting still continues today due to safety and DOT mandates.

I picked up my license plate from my aunt's place this weekend and I just wanted to let you know it arrived safe and sound, and to say it's very beautiful, and to say thank you so much for helping me and making sure I finally got it. It looks perfect and exactly like the real license plate from that era; I can't believe how similar it is to the real thing! Again, thank you very, very much! It (and you) are wonderful!

I have just got to tell you that the tag looks absolutely beautiful on the front of my Satin Silver 05 Mustang. The fit is perfect and the quality is excellent. Thanks for offering the midsize, it worked perfect!

I recently placed an order with one of your competitors and had to wait 14 business days plus shipping time. Overall, it took almost a month. Of course there was no indication of the processing time until the order was placed and paid for.Then I saw your web site where you said you shipped custom orders in 48 hours. Well, I was very skeptical but decided to test your claim.The result: I am totally satisfied! You shipped within 48 hours and I had the product within 4 days of ordering. Not only that, but it is superior to the product mentioned above. I will certainly recommend you to any interested people.Thanks

I wish all companies were as efficient as yours!

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.
