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

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

Good Morning mileena202,

I posted an inaccurate response to this Topic :-( . In South Carolina the "standard issued license plate" is flat, endorses tourism and is reflects the state's history. The other with "In God We Trust" has raised letters and must be requested when you purchase a vehicle. I put it in my sales contract when I bought my 2012 Ford Ranger XL and 2011 Toyota Matrix. If you have the standard issued plate, you can exchange it for the "In God We Trust" version without charge. I still have to do that for my 2012 Chevrolet Sonic.

I do wonder what license plates I'll receive after their ten year life cycle expires. This duplicity is not made known freely by SCDMV and is not cost effective as the returned license plates can't be reused.

Take Care :-). MGY
