The plates are manufactured and shipped to your local tag office.
Here is a common scenario: (for illustration purposes only)
Your current annual registration (your yellow decal renewal) is 46.10.
You purchase a pre-sale voucher for $33.00.
You decide to replace the plate while your registration is still current:
Approximate fee to replace: 36.90 (License plate replacement fee plus branch fee)
You decide to wait until your tag is up for renewal:
Approximate fee 46.10 + 28.00 (license plate replacement) = $74.10
*If your tag is up for a mandatory replacement (every ten years), the $28.00 would not apply.
Once you have made the switch to the specialty plate, your annual fee for future years might be 76.10 (46.10 plus the 30.00). The extra fees go to the sponsoring organization to support their mission.
Most private vehicle registrations, excluding trucks, are 28.10, 36.10, or 46.10 annually.
