LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Starting next year, Kentucky’s license plates will have a new look.

The new plates will be flat and printed digitally instead of embossed with raised numbers and letters.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, KYTC, is making the plates flat to reduce the production costs and make the plates easier to store.

The background graphics and pricing for standard and special license plates will stay the same.
