The purposes of show plates
People buy show plates for a variety of reasons. Show plates are often seen at trade shows and exhibitions, sometimes added to classic cars that are now kept off the road. They can boost the appearance of your off-road vehicle remarkably and are even seen at weddings, in offices and on walls in homes. Another great thing about show plates is that they make an excellent gift, and you can easily tailor them to create something really special for a loved one. Because you don’t need to comply with any regulations when you buy show plates, you have a wealth of fun options available to you and are only really limited by your own imagination.
We offer some of the best and most competitive prices for show plates in the industry, though this never means our customers have to make compromises when it comes to quality. Our show plates are designed to the same sky-high standards as their road-legal counterparts. This is just one of the reasons why we receive so much glowing feedback from our customers, and all the customers and rating you’ll see on our site are 100% genuine. Many people come to us after seeing the products we have manufactured for their friends and family members. We are constantly complimented for the quality of our products, our low prices, our excellent customer service and swift despatch times. More and more people are returning to us time and time again for further purchases.
The show plates that we supply to our customers do not come with holes pre-drilled. There are various reasons for this. One of these reasons is that the holes on vehicles tend to be in different places, which means the plates may not fit if we drill the holes ourselves. Another reason is that many customers prefer to apply their plates with sticky pads to avoid placing holes in them at all. The pads that we provide as part of our fitting kits are incredibly strong and dependable, so you won’t need to worry about our plates falling off once you have affixed them to your vehicle. Nonetheless, we do also supply and screw option with the fitting kit, giving you all the flexibility you need. We strongly recommend that you opt for this when you place your order to avoid unnecessary problems and save time.
The kitting fit specifically includes:
• 6 double-sided sticky pads
• 2 black screw caps
• 2 yellow screw caps
• 4 coated self-tapping screws
• 2 white screw caps
The kit will become available to you once you have designed your plates and added them to your basket.

Where can I display show plates?
Show plates enable you to add extra personalisation to your vehicle. They can help you make a powerful statement and are often seen at motoring events across the country. Many people use show plates to add an extra touch of class to their cars, and it’s possible to make your plates completely unique thanks to the vast range of customisations available to you.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the main uses for show plates.
Big events: Do you regularly find yourself parading your car at big events? If so, show plates could be ideal for your needs, helping you win attention from the right people. Many people acquire show plates when they have entered competitions and wish to impress the judges, not only in the UK but abroad too. They can help your vehicle stand out from others which are otherwise similar, making it truly distinctive.
Brand promotion: Companies from a wide range of industries use show plates to promote their brand, products and services. Many companies and organisations run competitions with cars as the prizes to increase awareness of their products and drive brand engagement. These aren’t just motoring companies – show plates are often found on cars used to promote radio stations, newspapers and various other services.
Decorative purposes: Show plates are often used to add an extra touch of personality and class to environments such as homes and offices. If you’re a lifelong car fan, you can buy show plates and add any wording or colour scheme you like to them. Custom show plates can become a powerful talking point and are great to show off to visitors.
Selling a car: It’s often wise to add show plates when you are selling a car. Show plates can help you get your car looking its best to attract potential buyers. They are sometimes added to cars in showrooms and used by private sellers. Because there are so many cars available on the second-hand market, sometimes it’s essential to do something to make your vehicle stand out from the crowd. Show plates can help you achieve this and can be the difference between selling your vehicle and it continuing to sit idly on your drive.
Gifts: Many people choose to give show plates as gifts for their loved ones including their friends and family members. It’s easy to customise plates to make them extra special and meaningful for your recipient. Whether your friend or family member is an avid motoring fan or not, a custom show plate can make an excellent gift. Some people even buy bespoke show plates as wedding presents featuring the names of the couples that have just started their new lives together.
Boost the appearance of various vehicles: Show plates aren’t just for cars – they can also be added to vehicles like boats, scooters, quad bikes and motorcycles to give just a few examples. You can add your plates to any vehicle as long as you are not driving it on a public highway or on public land.
What makes our show plates superior to other options on the market?
People opt for our show plates over others for a wide range of reasons. The internet has made it much easier to source high-quality show plates, and what’s more is that we can provide you with show plates for 50% less than you can expect to pay on the high street. One reason why we can sell show plates for less is that our overheads are not as costly. Our online plate maker gives you a valuable, accurate insight into what your plates will look like once they are brought to life. We don’t operate a physical store, which enables us to make substantial savings and pass them onto you in the form of incredibly competitive prices. Some of our competitors have higher overheads, which is why they don’t use the British Standard approved acrylic wo do. However, the cheaper acrylic used by some of our competitors can become brittle and crack easily, fading in the sun in the process.
How can I tell if my existing show plates are made from quality materials?
You can tell whether plates are printed on quality acrylic by looking at the bottom right of the plate. If you see the number BS AU 145 D, this means the acrylic used to manufacture your plate has gone through tough stress and durability testing and meets retro-reflectivity standards. There is no difference in manufacturing quality between the road-legal and show plates we produce. If this number is not present on plates that you have purchased elsewhere, this will probably mean your plate does not conform to the British Standard and is therefore of inferior quality to the ones produced by GB Show Plates.
How do I get in touch with GB Show Plates?
Another reason we are able to keep our prices so low is that we communicate with our clients via e-mail. We run a highly-efficient, automated service and find that the margin for error is much smaller when you design your plates through our online plate maker rather than describing what you are looking for over the phone. E-mail has proved itself to be by far the most effective communication channel available to us and means mistakes are kept to an absolute minimum.
You can contact us at any time if you do have any queries about the show plates that we manufacture and supply. We endeavour to get back to you as promptly as we possibly can. If your enquiry is about your order, please include your order ID in your message to speed up the process. You will see your order ID in your email order confirmation.
