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.

ATTN: Customer ServiceTo whom it may concern,I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your company for producing a fine product. I have ordered about 8 plates from you over the past 10 years and have been delighted by every one of them.I recently ran into a miss communication with the printing of my latest plate. It was a gift for a friend of mine. I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to have the plate redone at a nominal fee. I understand the price of raw materials, shipping and handling and the other items that go with that. But all in all the recipient loved what was given to him thus eliminating the need to redo that plate. Thanks again.In the meantime I will get together additional information for new plates over the next couple of weeks. Again thank you for your assistance and your continued production of a quality product.Sincerely Yours,Lester

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.

Very happy customer here. Excellent product and lightning fast shipping.Thank you.


I just got my 4th plate from you today and I continue to be amazed by the quality of the product. Right down to the proper size and no-hole orientation of the 55 NY plate (I only learned that by going back and visiting the site). Thanks so much. You've helped to make several old cars of mine, my brother's and my best friend even more period-authentic. Great product and well worth the expense for something done with such a high level of quality! I guess that might be silly, since the originals were made by state prisoners ... but that's another story!!!


My new Japanese plates arrived today and look fantastic, thanks very much for your help, very impressed with your service as always.

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.
