80s UK number plates

Post  Juha on Sun Jun 03, 2012 10:30 pm

Does anyone which font was used for the UK car regs in the 80s?

I've found a few that are almost a perfect match, but I always need to mix up 3 different fonts to get each plate correct, which is a bit too much work. Laughing

Hi Juha,

I've recently started using both 'UKNUMBERPLATE' font and 'REGISTRATION PLATE UK' fonts and by stetching the font slightly on my desk top publisher, I can make a good version of the earlier style of number plate. I appreciate it's not an off the shelf 'old style plate' font but so far, it's the best I've found.

Hope that helps, Steve

I used the first one, but not the second. I'll have a look for it. Thanks!
