New Jersey License Plates

The State of New jersey issued its first license plate in 1908. The New Jersey license plates issued between 1909 through 1915 were made of porcelain. From 1908, all New Jersey plates were dated with the exception of the 1956, 1959 and 1979. 1991 to current issue were undated. The slogan "GARDEN STATE" and appeared first in 1959 and still appears on currently issued license plates. The first graphic to appear on New Jersey license plates was a map of the state which was embossed (stamped) between the letters and numbers. This graphic of the New Jersey state map is still embossed on current issue license plates.

The 1908 New Jersey license plate was a kit plate and was state issued. It consisted of a metal base with crimped edges meant to accommodate flat painted metal panels. Each digit was assembled and mounted along with a panel for the state’s abbreviation, date, and the manufacturer’s seal. The license plate manufacturer seal was also applied to porcelain license plates which were issued from 1909 to 1915.

New Jersey is a top antique car restoration state and has numerous antique auto collectors. In addition to being the home for many car enthusiasts, the state is a top venue for car shows.

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!!!

Hello:Wanted to let you know that I received my plate yesterday, and am very pleased. Your custom reproduction of a 1934 Florida plate is outstanding in every way, and the craftsmanship used to make it is obvious. I have purchased other plates from you folks, and the results have always been superb. Thank you, and keep up the good work.
