How long will they
With normal care, each plate may last
longer than the vehicle it's mounted to.
How do they attach?
With peel and stick neoprene automotive-type
adhesive tape, or if you wish we will affix a magnetic
strip at no extra charge. However,
we cannot guarantee how well the magnetic strip will
adhere in your application. From personal experiences
it won't survive an automatic car wash.
Will it harm paint
and how do I remove?
If your car's paint is in good condition
to begin with, the adhesive will not cause damage. Plate
may be removed with the aid of a hair dryer to soften
adhesive. Soften a section at a time and gently pry
up as each section becomes soft. If carefully removed
your Car Tags plate may be used again by applying a
new adhesive backing.
What is the size
of the plates?
Lower case letters such as a,c,e,n,i
are 1" high
Lower case letters such as l,b,t,d,f are 1.25"
All upper case letters and numbers are 1.25" high
Letter widths vary.
The maximum length of a Car Tags plate is 18".

characters do you have?
