How Do I Buy A License Plate Frame?

The 11-99 Foundation license plate frames are NOT for sale to the general public. Frames are only offered to new or existing members, as there are 1-2 included with each membership level. Members can purchase additional frames with proof of vehicle insurance. Please refer to the Membership page to review the details of each membership level and what items are included with each level.

If you are a member, please coordinate your replacement through our office by calling 714-529-1199 or submitting a request online.

NOTE: All license plate frames, as well as all membership items, are the sole property of the 11-99 Foundation (as noted on all membership applications). Third-party or private-party sale of frames or any membership item is strictly prohibited. Our staff monitors selling platforms on a daily basis and will flag and remove any sale, as well as revoke one’s membership to the Foundation should this occur.
