House Number Signs

“THE ORNAMENT of a house is the friends who frequent it.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The house number sign by your door should be more than just a fixture for the postman to look at. It is a beacon to direct and gather new friends and old. Unique house number plaques should say something about your personal tastes and be a handsome entry statement for your home.

Personalized house numbers add that finishing touch to the beauty and style of your home. A house number with special art will give your visitors a reason to smile every time they come to your home. House number signs are easy to design - start by choosing a favourite from one of our sign image portfolios then tell us how you would like us to tweak it.

When planning a new house number sign keep in mind that the size of the number determines the distance it can be read from. Different fonts and colors can have an impact but size is the main factor. An approximate rule of thumb is: 2 inch tall text can be read from 30 yards away, 3 inch tall text can be read from 40 yards and 4 inch tall text can be read from 60 yds.

Danthonia custom house number signs are made of HDU. High Density Urethane is a waterproof, insect-proof closed-cell foam, it carves, paints, and machines like timber. It is the same density as cedar with comparable dent resistance. Weathering is superior to wood in exterior applications as HDU signs will not crack, split, swell or rot when hung outdoors.

House number and house name signs are a great way to show parents or grandparents your appreciation for the home of your childhood or to wish them luck on a new house or property. Personalized house numbers add value to a house and are much enjoyed by friends and neighbors. Browse our galleries.
