Colorado License Plates

The state of Colorado issued its first license plate in 1913.  Prior to this time, cities issued numbers and motorists were required to make their own plates.  These plates came in a variety of styles and materials used included porcelain, leather and even metal kits plates sold in hardware stores.  The 1913, 1914, and 1915 license plates were porcelain.  Numbers on 1919 and 1920 plates were individually cut pieces and they were spot welded on the heavy license plate blank. A tab showed the year on these plates.  The 1920 Colorado license plates were the first state issued stamped or embossed type.  In 1920, most license plates in larger cities measured 6" X 14" with numbers 5/8" wide and 4" tall.  County numbers first appeared on 1932 license plate issues.

The slogan: COLORFUL was first embossed on Colorado’s license plates 1955 and continued to 1955.  Colorful did not appear on 1956 and 57 but reappeared in 1958 together with an embossed skier on the right hand side of the license plate.  To mark the 100th anniversary of Colorado’s statehood, the word CENTENNIAL appeared on 1975 and 1976 Colorado license plates.   The next graphic on Colorado’s license plates appeared in 1975 with a motif of Colorado’s mountains screened on the license plates.  However the first embossing of a mountain on Colorado’s license plates was the year 1960 and this style is in use today.

Colorado issued its first retro-reflective license plates in 1971 and this continues today to follow mandate by the United States Department of Transportation.  The most popular Colorado license is the 1971 issue used in the movie Vanishing Point with number OA-5599.

I confirm that I received the plate for my motorcyle. Many thanks to you and the team at Platemeister for the excellent quality of workmanship.You were correct about warning of issues with the postal service in the UK : The UK Post Office here advised me they had sent notification of the item arriving (along with a 'collection code' ) to someone else's address!!!!!. Thankfully the USPS email link 'Endicia' (sent by your colleague Jerome) enabled me to keep close tabs on the delivery stages and to bypass the error made by the UK Post office...

I just received my EU-style Michigan license plate and it's brilliantly done. It's an amazing reproduction of European license plates, the blue bar on the left features the letters MI and a very clear State of Michigan flag.I very much look forward to mounting it on my BMW Alpina to add that certain touch to the vehicle.Licenseplates.tv, anytime again! Keep up the great work and I shall recommend you to those in need for license plates.

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!!!

Matthew A - Knoxville, TN

Great plates, great selection, great price, quick delivery, free customization. What more could you ask for I could not find a Hungarian license plate anywhere else. I have a VW Jetta III, which has been converted to look like a Vento (the European name for the same car). The Hugarian plate is icing on the cake for the transformation. You guys have made my dream a reality.
