Monday, 6 February 2023 (Austin, TX) – It’s official! The number one specialty license plate design in Texas for 2022 was the ever-popular and timeless Classic Black, from My Plates.com. This retro design has held the position as Texas’ most popular plate since its official launch in 2016. The Classic Black design claimed over 19,000 of the more than 91,000 sales of State and My Plates specialty license plates sold in 2022, making it the top selling plate by My Plates. The popularity of this design reaches back to 1958 when a fully black Texas license plate was a general issue plate design.
The Lone Star Black design came in second with over 7,900 plates sold in 2022. Although it came in second, this design still holds the title for the most sales of any plate design within the My Plates program since the design debuted in 2008. Over 119,000 Texans can say “We Got That” design!
In third place selling 5,665 plates is the Carbon Fiber plate design that launched in 2017. Carbon Fiber narrowly beat out the new Classic Black Silver plate design, which launched in May of 2022, and managed to secure 5,616 sales. Small Star Black completes the top five plate designs with 4,369 plates sold in 2022.
“Black and white plates are very popular in Texas. They look sleek, cool, and compliment every vehicle color,” said Steve Farrar, President of My Plates.com.
