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 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.

Don F - Santa Teresa, New Mexico

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
