LG Plates Software
LG Plates software offers a user friendly and an automatically compliant solution to number plate production, version 2.4.5 comes with a licence and remote support for an entire year.
LG Plates Software only makes road legal number plates and restricts its design options to meet British Standards. It integrates perfectly with our specialist printing solutions, in fact its designed to be used with them exclusively. The current version of the software 2.4.5, comes on a USB stick and requires a Windows PC for it to be installed on. After install, a quick telephone activation enables its designs to be created and printed out.
A licence is included which provides phone and remote technical support for an entire year. Internet connectivity and a working web browser is required for remote support. Licences are automatically extended based on a minimum spend, otherwise you may find it more cost effective to simply purchase another years licence.
There are two main parts to the software, a plates builder and a supplier log. More information on these can be found below.
LG Plates software has features that simplify and streamline plate design while remaining compliant with BSAU145d. Complex designs are turned into simple one click options, helping users to design and print a legal number plate in moments. The latest version comes with templates for a hundred plate sizes including lipped plates with support for more modern printers. New features include improved registration number validation, new badge positioning for 2-line plates, improved font and plate definitions, lipped plate support for oblong plates and user authentication with password log-on.

The plates builder holds all the design options in one accessible location. Built in plate templates fulfill the legal requirements for text placement, font type, size, colour and spacing. Changing to another plate size automatically adjusts the text size and spacing so it continues to be compliant.
A text field is used to enter the registration number with check boxes largely used for optional choices, with only legally compliant options available. Operators can choose between a text or image supplier identifier and include a coach line. Supported templates enable the use of lip images and allow changing the lip background in the preview window. Comma separating registration numbers allows batch’s to be processed for faster production runs.
As well as helping suppliers adhere to the British Standards for layout, our LG Plates Software comes with an integrated RNPS Log feature to help them keep accurate records of all the number plates they make. The information for each plate is stored along with the proof taken for identity and entitlement. Multi-branch organisations can sync local information with an instance of our LG-RNPS database for centralized back-up and monitoring. This feature can be deactivated and turned-off for organisations with their own recording systems. Advanced features may not be available by default or extra costs required.
