Is there some software that could be used to make them? Free if possible.

You can just type in what you want on the plate and it automatically puts it in the correct font and color, just right click and import it to miscrosoft word, resize, then print.
And if you do not have the proper font....do a search for the font you need, download, unzip and load into windows fonts folder. then you can type the correct font
I did this for another person and when reduced the fonts are dead on and level.....I have found at least 12 plate font sets online that I use

That's way easier than my way. Thank you for posting that link Nick!
It is NOT the easiest way if you're looking for current plates. Most of the plates on that site are outdated.

Rob, I started printing my plates on photo paper, they come out much better on photo paper then decal paper for me. I use double side clear tape to attach them to the model.
That is a great idea Jonathon.
I'll have to find some double sided clear tape. Is it like carpet tape?

Here in Illinois we have ex govenors who make license plates as they are spending time in the clink.
lol, I think most politicians should be making them at the end of their careers! lol

I also print my decals onto photo paper and merely glue them in place. No double sided tape needed.
