license plate frames are fast becoming the rage. Auto,
motorcycle and scooter frames customized with your name, logo or
message are big hit promotional items and used by businesses,
schools, groups, organizations and individuals. We offer both custom
plastic and custom metal license plate frames.
The most popular frame customization methods include engraving,
screen printing and full color process printing. Custom screen
printed plates are less desirable as the imprint will wear and
begin to fade in the weather. The methods used by us include Laser Engraving and
Printing. Laser engraving is applied to metal frames (plated zinc
alloy and anodized aluminum). Full color printing is used with our
plastic frames (white, black and chrome).
Laser engraving is the method of choice for customizing
metal license plate frames.
Engraved plastic inserts are used for zinc alloy frames. These
frames have recessed areas on top and bottom for applying the
inserts. The plastic inserts are available in a variety of
background and engraving colors. With this method both text and
logos can be engraved. Plastic inserts are extremely durable and
rated for outdoor use.
license plate frames are directly laser engraved on the surface
metal. anodization is a process which produces a very durable
surface layer which is typically in a color ie black, blue, red,
green etc. The high energy light beam emitted from the laser removes
the anodized color coating to expose the aluminum metal color
underneath. Laser engraved marks on anodized aluminum shows up
looking "frosty" white and ideal for reproducing text and logos in
great detail. Laser engraved marks are extremely durable and won't
rub or scratch off.
Full Color Process Printing
This printing method is primarily applied to
plastic license plate
frames. With this method multi-color designs can be reproduced.
Full color images are first applied to durable outdoor rated vinyl
strips. These strips are then adhered to the top and bottom recessed
areas of the plate. Full color imprints are applied to either a
white or clear background. Clear allows the color of the frames to
show through and thus becoming the background color.
