At Aplates, we exclusively use the highest-quality materials available on the market. We combine deluxe acrylic with laser-cut gloss black characters to create the iconic 3mm depth, to which we add the domed gel resin to produce the sleek, rounded look. This formula has been tested extensively to maximise plate durability and retention.

We use cutting-edge laser technology to bring you the best quality plates available on the market.

Our 4D Neon Gel plates have been tested extensively in order to maximise their durability and premium condition. As a result, the plates are weather-proof, and they can even withstand being jet-washed from distances over 1.5m.

We include a free pack of sticky pads in your delivery for every plate ordered. These 10 strips provide an extremely strong grip which allows for a quick and easy installation.


No, Neon Gel plates are illegal for use on public UK roads – they are strictly intended for Show purposes only.

Following the latest iteration of the British Standard (BSAU 145e) in September 2021, Neon Gel number plates are no longer road legal in the UK.

Consequently, Aplates only sell Neon Gel plates as Show plates. This means they are printed without our manufacturer details and the British Standard.

As a DVLA-registered manufacturer and supplier of number plates, Aplates must ensure all of our road legal plates comply with the British Standard. Thus, please note that by law we must include our company name, postcode and the current BSAU number on our road legal plates.
However, as these are considered Show Plates, this means they are not legal for road use; they are strictly intended for Show purposes only.
Therefore, these plates come without legal markings – without our supplier name and postcode, and without the British Standard code.
The font style we use for all our number plates is Charles Wright, which is the standardised font in the UK.
