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.

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

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.

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.

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...
