Idaho License Plates

City governments were responsible for registering motor vehicles from 1909 through 1912.  The first Idaho license plates were made of porcelain, brass and steel.  The first slogan on Idaho’s license plates appeared in 1928 where the word POTATO at the bottom of plate was stamped/embossed, in addition to an image of a potato.  The 1940 plate commemorated 50 YEARS OF STATEHOOD at the top and 1890 IDAHO 1940 at the bottom.  The word SCENIC was used on all Idaho license plates issued between 1941 through 1946.  The 1947 Idaho license plate has VACATION WONDERLAND and the image of skiers embossed/stamped on it.   The 1948 Idaho license plate was embossed/stamped with WORLD FAMOUS POTATOES at the bottom.  An image of a potato was placed between the county code and license plate number.  In 1953 AND 1956 Idaho changed the slogan to read WORLD FAMOUS POTATO.  Beginning in 1957 to present, all Idaho license plates were issued with the slogan FAMOUS POTATOES.

The 1928 potato Idaho license plate was the most popular issue in the United States.  The detail of the embossing/stamping including the de-bossed potato “eyes” was an engineering marvel back in 1928.  Retro-reflective film license plates were introduced in Idaho in 1972, green on reflective white.  The state of Idaho has used retro-reflective film on its license plates continuously since 1972.  The 1948 and 1949 Idaho license plates show screened images of potatoes with a dab of butter.

Idaho license plates for 1928, 1947 and 1948 are so rare that few are ever seen in public. The 1985 Idaho license plate base is same as the 1983, but was modified to show snow-capped mountains.

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 picked up my license plate from my aunt's place this weekend and I just wanted to let you know it arrived safe and sound, and to say it's very beautiful, and to say thank you so much for helping me and making sure I finally got it. It looks perfect and exactly like the real license plate from that era; I can't believe how similar it is to the real thing! Again, thank you very, very much! It (and you) are wonderful!

I received the 1947 OREGON STATE LICENSE PLATE--EMBOSSED WITH MY CUSTOM NUMBER BY PRIORITY MAIL ON THURSDAY, MARCH 25th, I am impressed beyond words, looking atthe plate is like being transported back in time to see my late father's 1947 Black Buick RoadMaster, White topped Convertible that had the 380-497 plate, the car was stolen in Portland,and wound up on blocks in a field in Texas, it was beyond recovery, never saw it after that.As I e-mailed earlier, I will be ordering 2 more plates, possibly on Friday March 26th or Monday March 29th. My son will be helping with the ordering, he is more familiar with theprocess of using the computer.
