In Maine, New York, and Pennsylvania, the letters are raised.

In South Dakota, Nevada, and Delaware, the letters are flat.

If you have plates with raised lettering in Texas, you've had your vehicle for a while. I do know that after a certain number of years pass the plates fade and they reissue them with flat plates.

Texas did not waste any money on the default plates, they're black and white. I have a personalized plate that is red, white, blue, and black. Personalized plates can be almost anything in Texas. If you have $4815 for the setup fees and a design that will pass the muster of the Texas Department of Public Safety, you can get a personalized plate for your cause. Texas has a Dr Pepper plate (part of the proceeds go to the Dr Pepper Museum in Waco) and a plate to raise research money for Cancer of Unknown Primary Origin (with a fuchsia and black spotted ribbon on it). For a while, they had a "Built FORD Tough" plate but for some reason they're no longer issuing them. However, those who have them can keep them until the ink on the plates fade.

Here in NJ they used to be raised, but recently they have switched to an all flat license plate.
