The screen shots below show a tour of the LG Plates software in use, highlighting the pre-set templates and functions.
The software simplifies number plate production by presenting one click design options and automating font sizing and spacing.
Full usage instructions covering all features and functions are available in the manual, which can be found on the installation disc.
We only guarantee the plates created, when the software is used with our systems, media and our printers only using genuine consumables.
The software uses a split screen display with an options and settings bar on top of a plate preview with a 'What You See Is What You Get' display.
Select a plate size from the drop down menu, which is populated with imperial sizes and our media part codes. The plate preview window will change to show the size change.
Enter the plates registration number in the text field, the letters and numbers are all automatically set to uppercase. The plate preview changes corresponding with each letter or number added.
