3D Number Plates

Build Your Plate

Aesthetics and Durability Guaranteed

Plate Empire offers 3D number plates for all vehicles, ensuring a perfect fit on imported cars, motorbikes, and all UK models. They offer high-quality materials and incorporate state-of-the-art technology to provide exceptional visual performance that emphasises your automobile’s intensity. The sturdy design ensures long service, resisting rain, wind, or shocks and keeping your plates looking new for a long time.

3D Plates: Built to Last, Made to Shine

3D number plates are specially designed to display raised 3D text. Their crafting process and durability demand strong materials.

Applying the plate to the vehicle also leaves room for elasticity so it can withstand impacts without damage. But that’s not all! Plate Empire understands that letters on the number plate can fade due to weather conditions and other similar reasons. But our crafting process ensures your number plates remain glossy and intact for years.

Crystal Clear Protection: 3D Gel Letters Built to Shine

The letters are made from a gel polyurethane resin with outstanding water and chemical resistance. This resin is used as a sealer and coating agent to offer maximum durability. The 3D gel is explicitly made through a doming process, which includes applying a clear gel over a black vinyl cut to the shape of number plate letters. The idea is to maximise shine with a protective coating that keeps the appearance fresh and avoids damage. Also, the letters are heated during the curing process to keep the gel bubble-free.
The final procedure includes using 3M adhesive to fix the letters on the 3D reg plates and applying machine pressure to stick them tightly. The 3D number plates are then ready to be fixed on your vehicle. Plate Empire abides by the DVLA rules and regulations, ensuring your number plates are 100% legal.

Client’s Reviews

Joe Raods

Purchased a 3D number plate for my car and wasn’t disappointed. The quality was fabulous, the delivery was fast, and everything seemed amazing. I wanted my number plate to be shiny and tough, and they made sure I got what I needed.

Aina Kelly

My experience was really good! The number plates were great, flexible, and durable. I had no issues attaching them to my car. Needless to say, my car looked awesome with these plates. I was a bit worried if they’d look exactly as I wanted them to, but thankfully, it turned out even better.

David Tom

Received my parcel today, and everything seems fine. The plates are good; there is nothing much to say about them. But after purchasing, I realised that 4D plates would have looked much better on my motorbike. Anyway, it was a nice experience with them.

Alisa Roy

Awesome! The plates are fantastic. Received them an hour ago—pretty fast delivery, though. I would definitely want to try showplates now. 

Frequently Asked Questions

3D plates are legal if they comply with DVLA regulations. 
These include:
Material: It is reflective with black characters – no colour or tint added.
Font & Spacing: Regulations for size and spacing in the BS AU 145e standard.
Placement: Permanently attached to the vehicle
Important Note: 2-tone 3D effects, which were previously used, are against the rules now.

The 3D reg plates come with multiple beneficial aspects, such as: 

  • Enhanced Durability: Made from acrylic, which is rather hard-wearing, these plates’ surfaces are less likely to scratch, chip, or fade compared to ordinary metal plates.
  • Improved Visibility: A glossy surface and raised characters give high visibility, but they are at different angles and in poor lighting. This ensures the safety of all road users, including pedestrians and cyclists.

Modern Aesthetics: This 3D design now gives your vehicle increased aesthetic value by giving it an appealing modern look.

Different 3D number plate sizes are available to fit your car and be legal and classy.

Even Smaller Options: We also supply plates that are even smaller and meet UK standards for motorcycles and ATVs with short registration numbers.

Legality Guaranteed: We always value your safety and have the documentation to prove that our plates meet the DVLA requirements (BS AU 145e standard).

Expert Help Available: If you have any questions regarding sizing or the legalities surrounding the 3D gel registration plate, please feel free to reach out to our friendly professional staff members. 

3D Gel Number Plates: The plates are made of polyurethane gel resin, allowing the characters to have a raised appearance on the plates. They have a slightly stereoscopic look with a high-gloss sheen.

4D Number Plates: However, 4D plates are made of solid acrylic. This material enables a fine and clean cut around the lettering, thus making it different and bolder than the 3D gel plates.

As established, both styles appear three-dimensional, though 4D plates will create even more pronounced effects because of the sharper angles used.

There are two ways to order 3D reg plates
