The website is committed to educating others about license plates and using license plates to encourage appreciation of the geography, history, nature, art, and diversity found across the USA and Canada.
I started collecting license plates at 8 years old and still do so today. Currently, my collection consists of about 2,300 license plates.
When I was young, I read Encyclopedias to learn about the different states (such as the state flag, motto, animal, etc.). This site attempts to re-create that experience for today’s youth and adults in a fun and engaging manner.
