Virginia License Plates

 Virginia issued its first license plate in 1906.  These were made of porcelain until 1913.  In 1914, Virginia issued its first license plate made of steel.  All of Virginia’s license plates were dated except for the years: 1906, 1907, 1908 and 1909.  All of Virginia’s license plates issued were very utilitarian with few color changes, slogans and artwork.  In 1976, Virginia issued and optional license plate to celebrate the nation’s Bi-Centennial.  The plate had a screen print of George Washington in the center surrounded by stars.  The slogan "INDEPENDENCE BICENTENNIAL 1776-1976" was screened on the bottom of the license plate.  In 1985, the Great Seal of The State of Virginia was used on optional license plates issued by the state.

Due to World War II, Virginia issued a fiberboard license plate in 1944.  Unlike fiberboard license plates issued by other states, the 1944 Virginia fiberboard license plate was fully embossed.  Virginia license plates were issued in many colors with either white on black, black on white or blue on white being the most common.  Other colors were blue on white, red on white, white on blue, white on red, white on green, dark blue on orange-yellow on blue, yellow orange on black, red on green and black on orange.

In 1971, Virginia introduced its first license plate with retro-reflective white sheeting. This use of retro-reflective sheeting still continues today due to safety and DOT mandates.

THANKS, the actual plate you made looks much better in person than the proof you sent for me to approve, you went above and beyond my expectations, and thanks for taking the time to get it right.

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 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!!!
