Unique Pl8z | Liberty and Justice For All

Looking for somethings for the person who has it all? How about custom license plate art? Our Gift Guide Giveaway series continues tonight with Unique Pl8z. Nicole O’Brien, the owner of Unique Pl8z, shares her story below:

“Unique Pl8z was honestly sort of an accident.

While cleaning up around the garage; my dad was getting rid of some old license plates that my grandfather had collected. I quickly stopped him because I knew I could do something with them. I cleaned them, cut them up, and turned them into one of a kind signs. I then gave them to family and friends as Christmas presents.

Soon after those presents were opened I started to receive phone calls and emails from my friend’s family and my family’s friends!  The signs I made as gifts were a big hit and suddenly everyone wanted one!

That was just about one year ago!  I haven’t looked back since.  All my signs are handmade by me and each piece of art is completely unique.  No two signs will ever or can ever be the same. I am blessed that my passion for recycled art, my hobby of re-purposing, and my love for junk have led me to have such amazing success. My goal is to grow my brand and to send a little piece of the good ‘ol U.S. of A. around the globe!” – Nicole O’Brien

  32. One of the most amazing pieces of folk art I’ve seen in a long time. My mind has been on this beloved art having looked up possibly getting another subscription to Folk Art Magazine which I found retired in 2008! I’m lucky to have over a dozen of the old editions. First time here. So impressed by just seeing the license plates that I’ll have to think of a new subscription! Maybe to FOLK. And right after the election….I’d better stop there. Love, love, this work and kudos to the artist! I’m headed right over to the website. Yahoo!!!, fellow etsian! jolee
