Reflective Paint Application

I have never used it, so perhaps you all could help me with something. I want to use reflective paint on a steel plate on the side of a go-cart. Problem is, I want the plate to be reflective but still be able to read the wording on it. If I just use the reflective paint over the plate would the words still be legible at night? If not how could I make the background reflective but not the words? Hopefully my question is understandable.
