Louisiana License Plates

Louisiana cities (New Orleans, Shreveport, Alexandria and Monroe) registered the first license plates in 1903. The earliest license plates in Louisiana were made of leather and later porcelain.  

In 1954, the word YAMS was embossed on Louisiana license plates –believed to be a counter to Idaho’s Famous Potatoes license plates. The slogan SPORTMEN’S PARADISE was embossed/stamped on Louisiana’s 1958, 1961, 1962 and 1963 license plates. This was changed to SPORTMAN’S PARADISE in 1959, 1964 through 1973, 1984, 1989 and 1993 Louisiana license plates. The 1960 Louisiana license plate commemorated one hundred years of Louisiana State University and was embossed with LSU CENTENNIAL. The 1974 and 1977 Louisiana license plates were embossed with BAYOU STATE at the top.

The main graphic icon on Louisiana’s license plates is a Pelican – embossed on the center of plate, except for 1950 where the pelican was a color decal. This icon was first on the 1932 issue and was used until 1939. The other graphic used was introduced in 1940 and used again in 1941 – a map of the state of Louisiana embossed on the center of plate. The 1989 Louisiana license plate was first to show a screened mother pelican with baby pelicans. The state name was positioned at the bottom of license plate in blue except for USA in red.

From 1922 through 1929, Louisiana issued two sets of license plate colors – one for vehicles up to 23 horsepower and the other for vehicles over 23 horse power. Louisiana license plates issued from 1929 through 1932 carried FRONT and REAR embossing or stampings. In 1944, to save metal for World war II, license plates were made of fiberboard.

Reflective paint was used to coat embossed or stamped areas of Louisiana license plates beginning in 1955 and continued through 1967. Retro-reflective foil was first introduced in 1968 (white) and continues today.  The state of Louisiana, like many American states, has an avid car collector group.

I just ordered from your company and I must say I am very very impressed with the over quality and look of your English plates. I had ordered one from another company a while back and since I received yours, there is no comparison. I ordered an English plate and it came with German font! I'm very glad to have come across your website in a search.This is the only site I will use from now on and will be a frequent customer. All my future orders will be through you guys and I recommended all my friends to you who use Euro plates.Kind regards,CaseyFlorida

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 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!

In January, you sent me some replacement letters for a license plate I ordered from you a few years ago. I have just now taken the time to replace those letters and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate you for sending the letters.Thank you so much and should I ever need or want to buy another license plate, I will be in touch.Have a nice day.Joyce

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
