Find out how to create your auto's number plates. (bike image by Charles Taylor from

Creating custom number plates is really fun. You get to pick your own colours, designs, themes, fonts and, most importantly, the text. The best part is that nobody will have a number plate similar to that of your car. Many websites on the Internet allow you to customise your own number plate. The customised plate can then be ordered through mail after making a payment.
