How do I make a purchase of collectible or vintage license plates?
By using our Shopping Cart system, you will receive an invoice for cost of plates, postage and sales tax (Colorado residents only). We accept Paypal, personal checks and money orders.
Individual plate weight varies according to metal composition and gauge of the metal. USPS postage costs are calculated by weight to U.S. as plates are added to the Shopping Cart. International buyers should email for specific postage costs. We do not charge a handling fee and will refund any postage overage of $2 or more. Plates are mailed in USPS Priority Mail boxes twice weekly. We need to receive payment within 10 days or the plate/plates will be resold, unless other arrangements are made. We accept any returned plates and will give a full refund less any postage and Paypal fees, if applicable. Yes, we will combine your website purchases with our eBay auction sales (Automobile License Plate Store) but request that one total payment be sent to avoid confusion.
HINT: One of the best ways to save on postage is to make multiple purchases (up to 40 – 45 standard sized 12”x 6” plates) and use a USPS Flat Rate postage box for $13.45 or a USPS International Flat Rate box for $66.50. Longer international plates and some older U.S. plates do not fit in these Flat Rate mailers. Postage information is available at www.usps.com.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE: All license plates on this website are for hobby, collection or display purposes only.
How do I learn about the hobby of collecting expired license plates?
Check out the Automobile License Plate Buying Guide that we’ve written on eBay. Consider joining the Automobile License Plate Collectors Association, the absolutely best resource for license plate collecting information. ALPCA members have access to ALPCA Archives, a very comprehensive accumulation of information about the license plates of the United States and Canada, as well as the rest of the world.
How can you contact us?
Just shoot us an email at LicpL8s@aol.com and we will respond within 48 hours.
Will you buy my old license plates?
We sometimes purchase collections or accumulations of license plates that complement our current inventory. Please tell us about the plates you wish to sell including description, condition, price and any other pertinent details. Please check Tom’s Want List to see if you can help him complete one of his collections.
What else do I need to know?
Another purchase to consider are Poly Sleeves (plastic bags) that are 13” x 7”. These sleeves protect your plates from scratches and damage. HINT: At $7 for 100 bags, the best deal you can get is to order 300 bags for $21 and pay USPS Flat Rate box postage of $10.95.
Please consider sending this site information to a friend. We work hard to under promise and over deliver…..and we hope that plate collecting brings you as much pleasure as it has for us!
