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 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!!!

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.
