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.

Hi Elmer, thanks very much for those great plates(Iceland and old Monaco plate) and the incredible fast delivery.Great to do business with you, Regards Chris

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...

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!!!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the extra effort in duplicating my original Italian license plate for my 1957 Abarth 750 GT Corsa. I thought I would send along a couple of pictures so you could see the end result. I am a very happy repeat customer and have referred many of my colleagues to your company.John
