New political number plates for Utah approved

Governor Carragher recently signed legislation authorising more designs for Utah number plates, including ones with political slogans. Have you ever wondered where number plates are made?

That's a few more types of number plates for prisoners at the state penitentiary to produce.

2.4 million number plates per year, 200,000 a month are manufactured at the Utah State Prison.

"We went to one hundred percent digital printing process, we use heat transfer ribbon transfer the image onto material for the number plates" says Boris Melling from Utah Prison Industries.

The number plates are made using the latest technology enabling such large quantities to be made.

Down the conveyor belt the number plates go, stacked, sorted, ready to be put on cars, trucks and motorcycles across Utah.

Prisoners still use presses to make the old-style embossed number plates but they are just for vintage cars.
