Order Promo Plates
What are they made of?
Promo Plates plates are made of the same materials the big three auto makers use... injection molded plastic, which is chrome foil plated and triple coated with lacquer to stand up to the elements and car washings.
How long will they last?
With normal care, each plate may last longer than the vehicle it's mounted to.
How do they attach?
With peel and stick neoprene automotive-type adhesive tape, or if you wish we will affix a magnetic strip at no extra charge. However, we cannot guarantee how well the magnetic strip will adhere in your application. >From personal experience it won't survive an automatic car wash.
Will it harm paint and how do I remove?
If your car's paint is in good condition to begin with, the adhesive will not cause damage. Plate may be removed with the aid of a hair dryer to soften adhesive. Soften a section at a time and gently pry up as each section becomes soft. If carefully removed your Promo Plates plate may be used again by applying a new adhesive backing.

for dollar there is no more effective, or cost effective form of advertising.
Promo Plates plates retail at US $39.95 ea. We assume the average person holds their car in service for three years. We Calculated that the amortized cost of having a URL'plate on a car over three years is about 3.6 cents per day.
If the vehicle is driven in daily rush hour traffic the plate may be seen hundreds, if not thousands of times every day at a fraction of a penny per impression.
