We are now offering letter key chains! Put a letter on your keys!

We have many letters and colors currently in stock. Letters are rarer than numbers on license plates, so choices may be more limited. See the last photo for commonly available colors. We don't always have each color available in every letter, so request a first and second choice for color in the buyer notes or convo us, and we will send you options.

Color options like "Red on White" mean a red letter on a white background. A single color option means that your key chain's background will be that color with a white letter.

Key chain size varies per the license plate number. Generally, the key chains measure around 2.5" x 1.5", but the largest I have in stock is 3" x 1.5" and the smallest 2.5" x 1". Let me know if size is a concern.

Looking for a letter from a certain state? Just ask!

These key chains are made from vintage, retired, and found-alongside-the-road vehicle license plates, mostly from the state of Michigan. Each key chain comes with one key ring and a silver eyelet to protect the number from wear and tear. Backs are left to show the natural license plate; some are silver and some are painted.

The letters are sealed front and back to protect the paint from chipping, especially on those vintage plates that are in danger of giving up their colors. Rust is a natural part of the lives of these plates, so they, too, are preserved to create the unique, weathered look vehicles get here in the wintry north. The key chains are textured, but smoothed so they will not snag on clothing or fingers. Be aware that, though they are sealed, the letters may scratch and distress with use.

Shipping to USA is by USPS with tracking. International customers, contact me for shipping cost.

Custom orders and strange requests are always welcome!
