In today's marketplace where just about everything is of inferior quality and imported, it might be comforting to know our license plate frames and other automotive accessories come direct to you from our facilities here in Lake Forest, California.
This rarity allows us to offer two things that seem to be overlooked right after you place your order - quality and service. For more than thirty five years we have made these two forgotten business principles our company policy, and we have benefited from the many repeat customers that appreciate this old, but fresh approach to doing business.
WHAT MAKES OUR FRAMES DIFFERENT FROM OUR COMPETITORS?
Our 30+ years of experience in manufacturing quality metal license plate frames, along with our direct private label vehicle manufacture supply programs, has made us the industry experts on this product line. All this experience has been channeled into the design, materials, and manufacturing processes we use to produce our line of frames. Below are a few of these quality features for your consideration when you choose a US license plate frame.
1. We use only the highest grade of rust resistant 304 stainless steel, which compared to lower grades of stainless steel like 400 series has a very low iron content. This grade of 300 series stainless steel is also supplemented with the addition of corrosion resistant nickel. The combination of materials to produce 300 series non-magnetic stainless steel makes this grade extremely corrosion resistant, and able to withstand the many harsh environments that your frame will be exposed to. Do not be fooled by other stainless steel frames available on the market, as not all grades of stainless steel are alike!
2. We use 20 gauge thick material to ensure that the frame is rigid enough to protect your plate against the perils of car washes, road debris, and parking lot mishaps. And, all of our frames are edged deburred to remove sharp edges to avoid handling concerns during installation and hand car washes. Many of our competitors use thinner gauges of stainless steel without deburring the sharp edges, ouch!
3. Our frame designs have been fine tuned to fit all 50 US State plates including Canada. The variety of frame styles we offer guarantees we have a frame to meet all of your local DMV requirements, such as issues of blocking important plate information, and register tags locations. Additional features like our backside lower plate holding tabs, and slotted frame mounting holes ensure a perfect fit and a secured license plate within the frame. Having the wrong DMV compliant frame style and an improper fit on your vehicle can be a real bummer!
4. All of our frames include our “patented hardware hider caps”, and upper and lower license plate anti-vibration spacers. These added installation aids assist to create a cleaner looking frame by hiding away ugly mounting screws, and the plate spacers assist in a vibration free plate and frame combination. Quality is measured in these sort of fine details, no other competitor measures up!
SUSTAINABLE, RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS
When designing our first frames, we needed a solution that was elegant and durable. By constructing our frames from high quality 304 stainless steel and polishing them to a brilliant, mirror bright finish, we can guarantee our frames will last through a minimum of four years of exterior use, and ensure our frame materials are 98% recyclable - creating less waste than cheap plastic frames needing frequent replacement.
We use only 100% recyclable PET and paper-based materials in our retail packaging. Our recyclable shipping containers have also been designed for a snug fit with our products, reducing the need for package fillers. When we do use box fillers, we use water soluble Eco Peanuts.
Our procedures were also developed with the planet in mind. Our office buildings feature energy efficient equipment and lighting, and we use products such as Simple Green to minimize our environmental impact during every step of production. Our scrap materials are recycled or repurposed, and other environmentally friendly manufacturing processes ensure we meet the highest standards.
