Are there any designs that are digital, meaning that they are flat without the raised print? We recently switched to the digital printing format in Georgia and they look so much better and don't seem to show the amount of wear the raised printing does. I started to go through the catalogue on the DMV site, but there are so many special interest plates in Virginia!

I believe the answer to your question is, "no".

I've never seen one like this. Sounds cool though.

The only one I know of is the antique vehicle plate. They are made of thick aluminum plate with a plastic film overlay with the letters/numbers.

I would think that they would resist a flat digital plate because of counterfeiting. Who would counterfeit a license plate, you ask? Go to the Virginia State Police museum in Richmond and they have an entire exhibit of counterfeit plates that troopers have siezed over the years...

Your argument is actually favoring the digital plates. See this small explanation about when we switched to digital license plates in Georgia. It is very similar to the technology used for driver's licenses. http://www.gachiefs.com/pdfs/NEWS_GANewLPFinal.pdf

There are some new things to get used to...I am going to have to get a front license plate holder because we don't have front plates in Georgia. I know that our costs went down dramatically switching to these plates. We have a friend that is a Tax Assessor for one of the largest counties in Georgia.

My favorite thing about these license plates is that I think they are easier to read. But, I know that some dispute that.

Virginia's embossed plates have included a directional image security feature for at least 20 years. Va's plates are made by prison labor and cost less than 3 bucks a set....and last many years. You still see the 1976 bicentennial plate occasionally.

I don't know, it just seems like a counterfeiter would have a harder time coming up with the machinery needed to emboss plates than they would a PC and a printer.
