Lone Star Black is the most popular plate design in 2015.

Black and white plates are very popular in Texas, they look smart, sleek, cool, and compliment any vehicle color

“Ever since we released this plate to the market back in 2008, it has been very popular with Texans and continued to dominate the sales on a daily basis” said Steve Farrar, President of My Plates.com.

In second spot overall and holding the place as the most popular design for 7-letter personalized plate messages is Texas Black 1845. In fact, the top three plates offered by My Plates are all predominantly black and white in design and account for more than 43% of total sales. With over 43,000 plates sold each year, that’s a lot of black and white plates.

“Black and white plates are very popular in Texas, they look smart, sleek, cool, and compliment any vehicle color,” said Steve Farrar.

The top ranked flag design was the “Come and Take It” Gonzales flag plate design, which again out-sold the “Don’t Tread on Me” Gadsden flag and the U.S. flag.

If you were wondering which Texas university plate held the top spot, then you may not be surprised to hear that the Texas A&M Aggies retained that honor over the Texas Longhorns, with the Texas Tech Raiders finishing out the top three.

My Plates also offers out of state College plates and the top ranked plate in this category went to Iowa State University, which launched their plate in May. The other leading out of state contenders were LSU and the University of Alabama.My Plates
