Whether your home has a name or a number it needs to be visible. There is nothing more frustrating when you are looking for an address and you can’t see a name or number anywhere.
We’ve never had a huge issue with people finding our home, but recently two deliveries have been abandoned with the companies saying they couldn’t find us. In all honesty, I’m not sure how, as they had additional detailed instructions, and no one else seems to have a problem – one of the deliveries was for a new dishwasher, so that was especially frustrating. It got us thinking about how we could further improve the signage at our house.
We already have a plate outside the front door, but decided if we also had one at the end of our driveway, there could be no dispute and it would be much clearer.
We decided to go for this slate sign it looks really smart and is easy to read from the road. The bright white writing stands out really well. This is weather proof ink, so should hopefully stand up to all the nasty weather. It’s rained pretty much non stop since the sign went up and it’s looking great.
If you are looking for a sign for your home, you could also check out Village Green Signs or Trade Sign Shop. They have tons of house signs to choose from, but you could also use them as stable and kennel signs, so if you are a dog or horse owner they might be a good bet too.
Delivery is speedy and the signs come carefully packaged, with the fittings required for mounting them.
I think these would make a really nice house warming gift for someone, if you are looking for something different and don’t need one yourself.
Do you have any issue with deliveries? Is you home well sign posted?
