The Next Generation of License Plate Sheeting

3M™ High Definition License Plate Sheeting is visible and legible - day or night, rain or shine.


The Benefits of High Definition License Plate Sheeting

3M™ High Definition License Plate Sheeting is more than 2x brighter* head-on than 3M™ Beaded License Plate Sheeting. HDLP's brightness and visbility can improve road safety by helping make vehicle identification and plate authentication possible for law enforcement and others.

*Figures are based on observation from a following vehicle when measured at an observation angle of 0.2° and an entrance angle of -4°.

  • A car drives down a dark road at night with a highly visible, illuminated rear license plate.
    Visibility

    The brighter and whiter sheeting is more visible than 3M™ Beaded License Plate Sheeting in low-light conditions, which improves road safety by helping motorists see stalled or crashed vehicles.

  • A law enforcement officer faces a car whose rear license plate is illuminated by headlights in the dark.
    Legibility

    More legible than traditional plates, high definition license plate sheeting can help law enforcement identify vehicles at greater distances. These advanced plates can be read 8% earlier than license plates with beaded sheeting.

    Security

    3M™ High Definition License Plate Sheeting features 3M™ Dynamic Security Script markings, which use advanced retroreflective technology embedded in the sheeting to help prevent counterfeiting. This makes it more secure than conventional printed graphics, watermarks, embossed characters and holograms. 

  • A long roll of license plate sheeting cycles through a large printer.
    Flexibility

    High definition license plate sheeting is compatible with digital printing platforms. It can be embossed and roll coated, or hot stamped.
