Americans unite when sharing a passion for a cause. We’re also a nation of individuals who enjoy embracing (and sharing!) our one-of-a-kind identities. Today, our need for self-expression is most often shared via all forms of social media, along with any other ways that allow us to proudly express our individuality.
One exceptionally popular way for expressing your individual style is with a personalized license plate that displays something unique that you want to share with others. And, if you live in one of 19 states that do not require official license plates on your front bumper, the sky’s the limit to your creativity!
(These states do not require a front plate: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.)
Fun fact – There are nearly 10 million vehicles in the United States with custom license plates that allow drivers to express themselves with personal mantras or to use as an inspired way to market your business, products, or services to the masses.

License Plate FAQs
These terms are often used interchangeably and share the same meaning.
In the US, if a vanity (or personalized license plate) is government issued, the owner of the motor vehicle has paid an additional fee for specific license plate letters and/or numbers that usually represent a recognizable phrase, slogan, abbreviation, or personalized names or initials. Rules vary by state.
If the license plate is not government issued, for example, a front license plate displayed in a state that does not require one, then a vanity, or custom license plate, is one that can be specially designed to display almost any text or images. Individual states may have rules in place governing what can and cannot be displayed on unofficial license plates.
How Do I Get a Personalized License Plate?
To personalize a license plate required by the Department of Motor Vehicles, visit a local motor vehicle service center in your state. Non-government issued license plates can be purchased through any license plate retailer.
NOTE – We are unable to produce custom plates that may pose a security risk, including, but not limited to, anything that resembles an official license plate for police, fire, law enforcement, government, or other security agency. Some states, like Texas, have cracked down on custom plates, particularly plates that suggest vulgar and crude meanings.
