i believe this is why you have to try and find a "niche" market.

of course its the uv which fade the plates, so it does depend where you park it etc.

we bought a batch of backings with boarders already printed on them.

made 1 for a trailer, which is parked outside, and the red border has now vanished, plate was 6 months ago, so no system is fool proof.
