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

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

raised, just like our taxes... running over it in the driveway a few times usually takes care of that, though...

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.
