Aussie Sizes

This is where you order your Novelty Fun Novelty Number Plate. Just like the real deal, embossed pressed aluminium.
Aussie Sizes “customs” as we call them, have become a large part of our business. We can assist with everything from simple one offs through to batches of 1,000 plus plates for special events. We can print sequential number and letters and a wide range of colours. All of our products are printed on high quality aluminum with a quality finish.

    We started selling customised novelty number plates in the 1990's and over the years have made thousands. The range of sizes, plate colours and character colours has grown and grown and nowadays is immense - when last we counted there were over 550 combinations. Sadly we haven't yet found a website app that can handle that number of variations, so this post is all about our BEST SELLER - the good old favourite Aussie Standard Sized number plate, which has mounting holes pre-drilled so ready to hang. There are only 45 variations published here as from our main Dixie Souvenirs website this gets also listed in our Ebay store Dikse Plates and Signs and there we are limited to a maximum of 50 variations.   So lets tell you how to order your STANDARD SIZE NUMBER PLATE - PERSONALISED CUSTOM MADE, and before we continue please note that we are unable to replicate genuine number plates under any circumstances. It is illegal to use our novelty plates on any vehicle as substitute genuine registration plates. Heavy penalties apply for misuse Please read the details of PLATE and CHARACTER colours, then using the menus select the plate type, size, Character/Border Colour; the Plate Colour and the number of plates you want to buy.  FINALLY type in the embossed letters and numbers you want on your plate in the 'Order Notes' area. Aussie Standard Size plate (13.4cm x 37.2cm) - available in 14 background colours but in this post we have listed the 6 most popular which are: White; Black; Dark Blue Yellow; Red and Silver.  If selecting one line of characters there is a choice of three different heights Large (L) =80mm; Medium (M) =60mm and Small (S) =50mm. If ‘L’ is chosen there can be no more than 6 characters. If ‘M’ chosen then no more than 7 characters. If ‘S’ is chosen no more than 10 characters. PLEASE NOTE that spaces are counted as characters. Small and Medium characters can be positioned vertically towards the top, centrally or towards the bottom of the plate. In the horizontal plane they can be to the left, centre or right of plate. If selecting two lines of characters there is only one choice of character height which is Small (S) =50mm with no more than 11 characters per line including any spaces required EMBOSSED CHARACTERS  There are 9 choices of character/border colours listed here which are White; Black; Blue; Yellow; Gold; Silver; Green; Red and Maroon. Characters are pressed out of the base plate then coloured to highlight them, and the chosen character colour also becomes the plate's border colour, so it’s not possible to have characters in one colour and the border another colour. When choosing the words or characters to go on your plate it's important to PLEASE NOTE that spaces are counted as characters (so for instance MY TOY is 6 characters and not 5). Characters are embossed onto the base plate in a choice of three different heights with Large (L) = 77mm, Medium (M) = 60mm, and Small (S) = 50mm.  The size of characters used will be by default the largest we can fit into the space determined by your choice and number of characters. Mixed size characters are NOT POSSIBLE.

Additional Embossed characters are diamonds, dashes (-), pound or hash (#) at symbol (@), ampersand (&), apostrophe (') or full stops (.). Small and Medium characters can be positioned vertically to top, centre or bottom and horizontally to left, centre or right of plate. Diamonds or dashes are centrally positioned in the character line and a dot or full stop is positioned at bottom of character line.
