In this blog, Bespoke Plates will tell you how to buy a 4D personalised registration plate keychain, while providing you with information that will help you understand some of the vital services we offer along with our bespoke accessories.

The basics of a keychain

Keychains are used as an accessorise your keys. They can come in the form of a variety of items, they can contain novelty items like a mini-torch, bottle openers and more. Some can present a convenient identifier for important keys such as car keys, house keys etc.

Keys, regardless of the style, don’t usually have any significant identifiers that make them unique aside from the cuttings that are specific to the door it unlocks. Generally, you have to use them in order to know if they are yours. This is exactly why keychains are a great solution, as they personalise your key collection.

Personalising your key collection via keychain accessories gives your keys a unique stamp, making them easily identifiable to you, as you can choose what you add to your keychain.

Do you need a car to own a keychain?

Of course not! It doesn’t matter what kind of keys you own, any can be accessorised and personalised with a keychain, it can be your house keys, back door keys, shed keys, any sort of key.

What are 4D registration plate keychains based on?

4D registration plate keychains are based on real-life customised registration plates, otherwise known as gel plates, which can either be 3D or 4D. The plate has this name due to the characters of the plate not being flat, but instead slightly protruding from the plate, giving it a 3D effect.

Gel plates are becoming common and accessible to anyone, and with the subtle yet distinct style provided, along with the extra reinforcement provided to the plate, it’s no wonder they are so popular! And as a result, you can now have that unique style on your own keychain!

Bespoke Plates, alongside being a provider of 4D registration plate keychains, are also a renowned, established and certified vendor of gel plates, show plates, standard registration plates, and more.

Can a registration plate keychain be used as an ID?

No, a registration plate keychain is not a valid form of ID, or a valid form of confirming which car the keys belong to, as anybody can get any registration plate number on their registration plate keychain if they wanted to.

You may have a clear understanding of the aesthetic purposes of owning this keyring, so what about the practical reasons?

Maybe you’re set on getting one of these unique keychains for yourself or as a gift for someone but are struggling to think of a way to personalise it. Let us give you some ideas.

Whether it is for you or someone else, you can personalise the 4D registration plate keychain by:

  • Using your or their name, replace letters with similar-looking numbers, like ‘0’ instead of ‘O’, ‘5’ instead of ‘S’ and ‘4’ instead of ‘A’, etc.
  • Using the letters to spell out a nickname, pet name or an inside joke
  • Using the letters to spell the name of the car, or an abbreviated version of it
  • Using the numbers to signify an important date, or numbers important to you
  • A word that is important to you, like ‘Strength’ or ‘5TR3NGTH’
  • A positive term of endearment, such as KING or ‘K1NG’

Should I put personal information on a registration plate keychain?

We advise you not to put details that could compromise the safety of yourself and those around you on a personalisable registration plate keychain. Dates like your birthday may not be an issue, but your address and postcode may not be the best idea.

Should I put my registration plate on a registration plate keychain?

This is completely at your discretion, we wouldn’t advise this to anyone who is vulnerable, as opportunistic thieves could easily identify who owns a certain vehicle by the registration plate keychain.

Do 3D registration plate keychains exist?

Unfortunately, we do not supply 3D registration plates, but they may exist. Though we must highlight, the difference between actual 3D and 4D registration plates is noticeable, with keychains and their characters being so much smaller, there wouldn’t be much difference between a 3D and 4D style.

Do 5D registration plate keychains exist?

At the moment, in terms of actual registration plates, there is no such thing as a 5d registration plate, so the likelihood of a registration plate keychain version existing is extremely unlikely.

Is a 4D registration plate keychain a good gift?

Definitely! 4D registration plate keychains are customisable, so what you choose to put on it as a gift is special and unique to the person you will be gifting it to.

Of course, it goes without saying, any true car enthusiast would love the style, customizability, and thought that went into selecting a 4D registration plate keychain as a gift for them.
