The newest custom Texas Tech license plate design for the State of Texas has been unveiled.

This newest design features a license plate with a black background, a 3D Double T to the left, white letters for the license plate ID, and "WRECK 'EM TECH" in red letters at the bottom of the license plate. The previous custom design for a Texas Tech license plate was updated in 2017.

According to MyPlates.com, sales of full color and black background designs are more popular than plain white background designs.

"Our top 5 selling plates in the program are all black background designs," said Steve Farrar, President of MyPlates.

The new Texas Tech design was recently approved by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Board during their June meeting.

Other Texas universities with updated designs include Texas State and SMU. Texans wishing to purchase any of these new designs may do so by visiting MyPlates.com.

All custom license plates purchased from MyPlates.com start from only $50 a year or as low as $35 a year when purchased for a five-year term. Farrar also noted that Texans do not have to wait until they receive a registration renewal notice; custom license plates can be ordered at any time.

All MyPlates specialty plates are available for cars, trucks, motorcycles and RVs. Most are available for trailers, and they can all display the International Symbol of Access logo, too.

Since November 2009, Texans have purchased more than 450,000 My Plates, putting more than $80,000,000 in the general revenue fund, which helps pay for services for all Texans.
