Novelty license plates are simply a lot of fun. You’ve no doubt bought a few when you went on vacation, so consider stocking them yourself. Dedicate some shelf space to them, and you’ll watch them become best sellers in no time!
You might be stumped, though, trying to find a reputable, reliable source of wholesale license plates. You may even question just how long you’ll have to scour the internet before one appears…
Cast those worries aside: You’ve arrived at Smart Blonde! We specialize in wholesale, funny license plates that come in a massive variety of sizes and topics. Let’s go over the details!
Available Sizes for Wholesale License Plates
Before you check out our designs, first think about what size(s) you think your customers would like. Here at Smart Blonde, we offer eight different-sized license plates with nearly 15,000 unique designs. You’re free to pick from the following:
1. 12” x 6” — Standard License Plate
Our first option here is perfect for good old-fashioned, regular-sized USA license plates. Place one of ours overtop your normal, everyday, state-issued license plate — they’re the same size!
2. 7” x 4” — Motorcycle License Plate
Motorcycles, in fact, don’t use the wide plates found on today’s cars. They’re smaller, which makes sense, because motorcycles are smaller, too!
3. 6” x 3” — Bicycle License Plate
You won’t need to register your bicycle with the state for these plates, don’t panic. Our bicycle novelty license plates are just for fun, and they’re sized perfectly for mounting on either a pedal-powered or electric bike.
4. 4” x 2.2” — Mini License Plate
These are totally just for fun, but you could mount them on something like a large radio-controlled car or a skateboard if you’d like!
5. 20.5” x 4.5” — European License Plate
We haven’t forgotten about you, our European friends! We have your usual plate size of 20.5” x 4.5”. If you want that measurement in metric units (we hear you’re a fan of that system), that’s 52.07 cm x 11.43 cm.
6. 12.5” x 5.5” — Tennessee-Shaped License Plate
License plates don’t have to just be rectangles, you know. How about plates shaped like Tennessee? We’ve got some here that are ready to hitch a ride!
7. 11.5” x 6” — Bear-Shaped License Plate
Okay, Tennessee plates are definitely neat, but these next ones are just plain cool. Who wouldn’twant to stock novelty license plates that are shaped like bears? You’ll “bearly” be able to keep them in stock — pun entirely intended!
8. 12” x 4.5” — Half License Plate
Something that’s half the size doesn’t mean it’s half as awesome. Maybe you have an original design you want to sell (we let you design your own, after all), or you found one of ours that’s just perfect for your clientele but needs to be a bit smaller. In any case, we’ve got you covered.
9. License Plate Strip Wood Signs
For these, we take a standard 6” x 12” plate and cut it into strips to create individual letters, numbers, and other symbols that you can mix and match. The plates can be from any of the 50 states, and we can arrange the strips to spell any word, name, date, or phrase you’d like. Then, we’ll mount them onto a wooden base for easy hanging.
Costs for Wholesale License Plates
Retail orders require a $150 minimum, but since each plate design is priced differently, you could get more standard license plates than bear-shaped license plates for that price. Regardless, all US orders over $600 (including discounts!) come with free shipping!
Not to mention, the more you spend, the less you’ll spend! We promise that makes sense. Check out our discount tiers:
- Spend $250, get 4% off
- Spend $500, get 6% off
- Spend $1,200, get 8% off
- Spend $2,500, get 10% off
- Spend $5,000, get 12% off
- Spend $12,000, get 15% off
It’s as simple as that, and if you’re a wholesaler yourself, you can even avoid sales tax. Just go to our page covering Tax Exempt Information for Wholesalers to get the details!
Designs for Our Wholesale License Plates
As for the designs you can expect to find at Smart Blonde, we cater to just about every possible area of interest. Just a few include the following:
- Animals and Pets
Like some of the designs? We don’t blame you! You can check them out as sticker decals or spice up your license plates even more by adding our license plate frames and adding even more customization! If that’s still not enough, you can apply your own design if you want to sell novelty license plates to advertise your brand.
Fun Fact: Did you know that license plates were first distributed back in the year 1903 in the United States and have been evolving ever since? Ranging from motorcycle tags to European license plates and unique shapes and sizes. Represent any state and country with our license plates and much, much more!
Do You Have to Have a Resale Business to Order Wholesale License Plates?
Nope! Most entities that meet our $150 order minimum are going to sell the plates, but not everyone does. Let’s go over some other reasons you might order some wholesale, funny license plates:
As Corporate Gifts
Novelty plates can make for a fun way to guarantee you stay right at the front of the minds of your clients, and employees enjoy getting them as gifts, too!
As an Advertising Tool
Getting your branding and logo in front of as many eyes as possible is how you win big. Just about everyone has to sit in traffic at some point, so having your brand or logo on a front plate (in states that don’t require two license plates, anyway) is a great way to make sure people remember your name!
As Decoration for Your Office
Maybe you run one of those fun companies where the employees wear sandals and there’s a pinball machine in the breakroom. A wall covered in novelty license plates may just keep the casual Friday vibes going all week long!
As a Reward for Customer Loyalty
If you have a company that routinely interacts with the public, such as a TV/radio station, retail shop, or restaurant, you know how important it is to retain customer loyalty. Reward them every now and then with cool gifts, like novelty plates!
What Else Can Smart Blonde Make?
We’re so very glad you asked! We offer more than just novelty plates, such as:
The cool thing about our signs is the massive variety of shapes you can choose from, in addition to the cool graphics. Your options include all of these:
- Mason jar
- Octagon (stop sign)
- Highway shield
- Spark plug
Each sign has drilled mounting holes, but they can also sit nicely in plate display stands or frames.
Not only do we offer stickers in sizes ranging from 6” x 12” down to as small as 1.5” x 3”, but they come in a wide array of shapes and designs too!
Just choose X-Large 100% scale (standard license plate size), large 75% scale, medium 50% scale, or small 25% scale (the 1.5” x 3” size). These are vinyl sticker decals designed to last, and they won’t leave any sticky residue behind when you peel them off, either.
Coasters, Dog Tags, Magnets, Keychains
We love making products out of aluminum because it's so versatile. We can cut it into circles and put cork backing on them to make coasters, stamp out dog tags, pop them into rubber outer guards, and install 18” chains, or even adhere a magnetic strip on the back of one so it’ll hold up the grocery list on your fridge.
We always keep aesthetics in mind, too. When we ship keychains, the metal ring is wrapped to prevent it from scratching the surface of the keychain. Just unwrap it, install it, and enjoy.
