My knowledge of license plate manufacturing is limited to the movies. Specifically, prison movies. They always seem to have a license plate factory, and even today I have heard that some states still manufacture their license plates through the prison systems.
Is this still the case with all states, or do some states farm this work out to private contractors?
My assumption is that states may contract out the production of the plate blanks, but they still control the stamping of those blanks.
If anyone knows the answer to this (even if it is only for your own specific state),
can you list your state and tell us if it’s a private enterprise or a prison function?
