    How do we make pressed metal number plates?

    Creating pressed metal number plates is a multi-step process that includes machines working to a 1% pressure bar. First, the plates are fed through a machine which uses hot foil at over 200 degrees centigrade to burn the numbers and letters onto the exposed raw plates. After this, they are cooled to ensure the finished product maintains its original shape and durability. This method of craftsmanship has made British number plates highly durable – reminiscent of German-style designs.
