Central Prison
License Tag Plant - Page 1

North Carolina's "First in flight" license tags are made by the inmates of Central Prison in Raleigh. The license tag plant is in the prison's industrial building.

In the first part of the tag-making process, a large spool of aluminimum feeds down a conveyer belt where the reflective surface of the tag is applied.

It is then cut into tag-sized pieces of metal.
