Tippers Classic & Vintage Plates

Tippers is the only remaining manufacturer to use the original equipment and techniques to make truly authentic number plates for your classic, vintage or veteran vehicle.

Established in 1932 and proudly manufacturing in St Austell - Cornwall since 2010 we have an unrivalled range to suit all makes and models from 1898-today.

It is this experience and passion for history that means we are the first choice of the best restorers throughout the world.

This site only shows limited examples of the number plates that we are able to produce. As a manufacturer we start with sheet aluminium, so we can make number plates to any shape or size and are only limited by restrictions dictated from our dies, presses and that of the law.

We also make signs and plaques in the same classic style for your garage or shed. House names and numbers can also be produced so long as it could not be mistaken for a registration. 

We have a large collection of NOS aluminium digits from period manufacturers including Bluemels, ACE, Hills and the elusive Translucent digits for light boxes. 

If you cannot find what you are looking for on the site, please contact us directly to discuss your requirements for any bespoke licence plates.

Our contact details can be found in the Contact Us tab.
