Bespoke Plates will share everything you need to consider.

The basics of a keyring

keyrings are used as an accessorise to 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 keyrings are a great solution, as they personalise your key collection.

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

Why do people buy keyrings?

As previously mentioned, keyrings add a level of personability to your key collection, making it easily identifiable. Alongside this, they can make a thoughtful and personal gift without necessarily breaking the bank to buy one.

Additionally, keyrings are sometimes given as a gift in order to promote a brand, keyrings are an understated level of personalisation to your key collection and is a smart way to advertise a brand in a way that is more subtle.

What is a 4D car registration?

A 4D car registration, or 4D registration plate, is an optional and legal accessory to your vehicle that is customisation on the standard registration plate, resulting in pronounced and 3D-looking characters.

Aside from 4D plates, you can also have 3D registration plates, which have a similarly pronounced effect on the plate characters, but with their own distinctions. Both styles of plates fall under the distinction of gel plates.

Are 3D and 4D registration plates legal?

To clear up any confusion, plate modification, whether that be hex plates, or gel plates (3D & 4D) are 100% LEGAL if you stick to the outlined rules from the DVLA.*

*Please do your due diligence and research, some unverified registration plate providers may not be making their plates to the legal specification, which could become a massive inconvenience for you. Visiting Bespoke Plates is the best way to avoid this trouble.

Alternatively, using the government gateway to find licenced and approved plate makers is the best option for peace of mind and finding a plate maker close to you. Enter your postcode on the government gateway website.

What are the legal requirements for a registration plate?

The legal terms that a registration plate must adhere to are:

  • be made from a reflective material – for road safety
  • black display characters on a white background (front plate)
  • black display characters on a yellow background (rear plate)
  • not have a background pattern – so as not to distort the readability of your plate
  • be marked to show who supplied the registration plate – to assist with thefts and sourcing queries
  • be marked with a British Standard number – this is ‘BS AU 145e’ for plates fitted after 1 September 2021
  • The characters must not be removable or reflective. If your registration plates were fitted after 1 September 2021, they must also be a single shade of black.
