Washington License Plates

The State of Washington began registering motor vehicles in 1906 but only started to issue metal license plates in 1916. In 1920, some of the license plates issued by the State of Washington were made of porcelain. All of Washington’s license plates until 1925 were embossed with WN and the year of issue. In 1926, the full name WASHINGTON and the year were embossed on the license plate. The first slogan to appear on a Washington license plate was in 1939 "1889 – GOLDEN JUBILEE – 1939" was embossed on the top of a dark green license plate in yellow. Private motor vehicles were denoted by an X embossed on license plate.

Retro Reflective white film was introduced in 1968, the plate imprint was green. The first and only license plate with graphics (Mount Rainier) was issued in 1987 with the slogan Centennial Celebration. Washington’s early license plates were simple and utilitarian, and are a favorite with collectors of classic cars. During the second world war, license plates were issued to vehicles involved in the war effort with the embossing "VICTORY VEHICLE".   These license plates are in high demand with collectors of license plates and classic vehicles. Also during the second world war, the state of Washington renewed license plates by issuing embossed metal tags with the year of expiration to save metal for the war effort. The tags were placed over the expiration year originally embossed on license plate.

received my plates today they look just the way I EXPECTED.,thanks for a fast job and perfect appearance.

Donna B - Brooksville, Florida

I wanted everyone to know what a wonderful experience I had ordering from your company. The quality and workmanship you put into this tag is impeccable. I am tickled pink how good it looks on the front of my 2009 Mini Cooper Clubman S.I had a lot of questions about the tag from people at the car show yesterday. In case anyone wonders about the name "MAURICE BG", this is in honor of Maurice Gibbs, from the Bee Gees, who passed away a few years ago. The color of my car is British Green hence the BG so it wasnatural to name it after Maurice. Thanks again. I will be ordering another tag soon for my husband's classic Lincoln.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the extra effort in duplicating my original Italian license plate for my 1957 Abarth 750 GT Corsa. I thought I would send along a couple of pictures so you could see the end result. I am a very happy repeat customer and have referred many of my colleagues to your company.John
