We are the only company in Australasia that manufactures its plates off original drawings which means our plates are the brightest, most colourful plates available. We are also the only company that offers large (25cm) and small (16.5 cm) plates giving you a range of sizes and pricing.

We are so confident that our plates are of top quality that we offer a 10 year guarantee that our plates will not warp of fade.  If they do we will reproduce them immediately free of charge.

Customer-focused and quality driven, we deliver every time.


Art on a Plate is a boutique, customer focused business. Built and created by sisters-in-law Jenny and Lauren, now including Shirli.  Art on a plate launched in New Zealand in 2010 and quickly had customers from Australia approach us to work with them there. We are based in the lovely Howick area of Auckland, manufacture on the South Island of New Zealand and work across Australia and New Zealand, with many happy and loyal customers that work with us annually to produce their Picture plates for fundraising.
