Legitimate registered number plate suppliers will manufacture your plates with the correct font, spacing and colours. In addition many suppliers offer a range of extras for your number plate such as flags and borders. You should also check the size of plate for your vehicle. Some vehicles require particular shaped plates such as motorcycles, 4x4's and some Range Rovers and Jaguars.
