The current UK laws don't require number plates to have a minimum length, only a minimum margin on the sides of 11mm. This means that almost all of the excess on the sides of the number plates can be removed, producing a much smaller and cleaner looking number plate. This knowledgebase article explains our process.
If you prefer to learn from visual material, as opposed to reading our Knowledgebase articles, please check out our new video regarding making a 3D gel or 4D laser cut number plate. This will guide you through most of the aspects of making the plates, but there are extra tips and tricks to be found in the Knowledgebase.
Intro Sometimes, customers can't decide between 3D gel and 4D laser cut number plates. They like them both, so it's a difficult choice to make! That's where 4D 3mm with gel, or crystal with gel comes into play. The customer can have the best of both worlds; the sharp edges and depth of the 4D letters, combined with the curved light catching 3D gel. Step by step: Taking the acrylic and reflective that you produced following our previous guide (see here if you've not done this step yet), place it securely into your purpose built number plate jig. Gather the letters and...
