Why are 4D number plates popular?

4D number plates are popular due to their distinctive look and the premium feel of any vehicle. The raised characters offer a modern and stylish appearance that sets them apart from traditional plates.

What is the difference between 3D and 4D number plates?

The main difference between 3D and 4D number plates lies in the depth and appearance of the characters.

  • 3D Plates: These are made using gel resin that creates a raised, glossy effect. The characters on the plate have a rounded, bubble-like appearance, giving a sleek three-dimensional look.
  • 4D Plates: These use laser-cut acrylic characters that are flat but prominently raised. This provides a more defined and angular look, making the characters stand out more distinctly compared to 3D plates.

While standard printed plates have flat characters, 3D and 4D plates add depth and style to your vehicle with their unique designs.

If I buy a 4D number plate, would it be approved by the DVLA?

We do not sell registration numbers or personalised number plates. It’s important to note that you cannot simply create a registration number and use it on UK roads. 

You or the person you’re buying for must already own the registration number you intend to use. We only manufacture replacement number plates for registration numbers you already own.

Is there a warranty on 4D number plates?

We offer a 3-year warranty on all our 4D number plates, covering any manufacturing defects.

How do I fit my new 4D plates?

Fitting your plates couldn’t be simpler. At the time of checkout, you will have the option to add our fitting kit, which will allow you to easily affix your new 4D plates using either sticky pads or screws.

How do I maintain and clean my 4D number plate?

Maintaining your 4D number plate is easy. Simply clean it with a soft cloth and mild soapy water. Avoid using abrasive cleaners to keep the surface in pristine condition. Regular cleaning will ensure your plates remain clear and reflective.

Why do my 4D plates have different colour digits, with some appearing grey?

Please peel off the removable front protective film on each letter and number. This will reveal the true colour and ensure a consistent look across all characters.
