Have you ever thought of revamping your car from the inside out for a new look? Are you thinking about it now but don’t know where to start from? How about starting with swapping the regular number plate with a unique private number plate? Private number plates have this myth around them that these plates are not for everybody. The truth is a private number plate can be yours at any given moment. The private registration plates represent a person’s traits, important dates, significant hobbies, career, passions etc. It is remarkable that so many minute details about a person can condense into one simple number plate.
However, the first rule of getting private number plates is these plates are not simple. Anything that is not simple demands experimentation to find the answer to its riddle. For a private number plate, too, it is like a clean slate where you choose to write something significant to you. However, the script is only letters and numbers. Private number plates often do not make any sense to other people, apart from the fact that the plates stand out with their unique combination. However, the novelty of private number plates lies in the combination of privacy and secrecy. To own something very private and secretive, meaningful to only you, holds an appeal that people seldom pass.
However, to own these coveted and cherished plates of unique combination, one has to be sure about what he wants on the plate. What goes on top of a private number plate represents the owner and the car. Fortunately, this leaves a lot of room for experimentation until the right look and meaning is found. This article talks about the different aspects of experimentation with private number plates in terms of representation.
- Name- The most common trait people choose on the number plate is the owner name. Putting your name on the car is an outright display of ownership. While people often add lettering as stickers or embellishments, the addition of name or initials to the number plate is an understated way of displaying ownership. Your initials and name letters bring forth a sense of belonging and accomplishment to the car or vehicle. On the other hand, it is convenient to spot the vehicle by your name. The decision to stake out your name on the number plate also roots from the fact that the number plate is the easiest thing to spot in a car. So, when you look at the number plate, you will easily spot your name and the car.
- Occupation- The occupation of a person defines his career. How prestigious it is to carry your profession on your car number plate. The inclusion of occupation on the private number plate gives a sense of accomplishment and authority to the person. The inclusion of occupation on the private number plate creates a status symbol out of your car. This works when your car is a sign of how far you have come in your life or how far you want to go in your life. Your occupation and career displayed on your number plate in a neat, stylish manner put forth an air of professionalism around you and your vehicle. This way, you announce your designation and stature the moment you drive into a building or gathering.
- A tribute to your loved one- One of the most significant assets we have is our memories. When our physical assets mirror our emotional high points, it brings us peace and content. The private number plate is beyond just a car accessory when it includes dates that matter to you and your loved one. You can also include the name of a loved one instead of your name on the number plate. Otherwise, you can pair up your initials with your loved one’s initials to show togetherness in a subtle and delicate way. This will surely win your loved one’s heart. Sometimes people put up plates of date combinations that show up on anniversaries and birthdays. You can also add dates that matter to you but remain hidden from the public eye. This adds a special, private touch to the combination on display.
- Your pet or your favourite team- many sports enthusiasts are die-hard fans of teams. As a child, we always want to support our favourite team. Even when we grow up, the child within us wants to stay true to his favourite sport and team. The easiest way of showing solidarity to a team is by etching significant symbols and letters into your number plate. Sports-related numbers and combinations go well with a sports car or a luxury car. Even then, if you are a travel enthusiast and are a part of a traveller’s gang, you can customize your number plate to show solidarity with your teammates.
In conclusion, with infinite numbers and combinations, the private number plates open up a vast area of representation and significance for the person who chooses them.
