Message and Lifestyle plate frames

The Message and Lifestyle personalised plates available in New Zealand are the same length as standard licence plates but are taller (360 x 155mm Vs 360 x 125mm Standard). This size has not been popular enough for any frame maker like us to make a mould for this size. Plastic injection moulds cost thousands of dollars and 3D printing is still to expensive per frame so the only option is to cut three standard frames and glue them to the taller plates. 

Cut the frames in the pattern illustrated in the pictures above. Trim the length of the sides so the pieces are a close fit to the plate. Fit the pieces and tape them in place with masking tape or other temporary tape that is clean and easy to remove.

Flip the plate and frame over and use roof and gutter silicone or other similar outdoor product that with stick well and fill the spaces between plate and frame. When cured, remove the temporary tape and install on the vehicle. Below is a Slimline frame glued to the plate with clear silicone as an example.

We don’t recommend using chrome frames as the joins on each side may be more visible than plain plastic frames.
