If the house numbers are not steel, what are they made from anyways?

We use a light weight aluminum plastic composite material, aka ACM or ACP. The face and back are thin aluminum, and the core is recycled plastic. It's very popular for making signs, and is made for any weather, from arctic cold to desert heat or wet conditions. It won't rust or rot, and if you need a custom color it can be spray painted. The screws used to fasten are steel, with painted heads. If you would like more corrosion resistant screws, request our stainless screw option with a note on your order, or by messaging me.

What are the fastening methods?

SCREWS + SPACERS FASTENING: Comes pre-drilled for screws and includes 3/8″ spacers to make your number stand out from the wall. 1.5″ screws are also included

PEEL + STICK FASTENING: No holes on the face and outdoor rated adhesive tape already applied. *NOT FOR USE ON STUCCO OR ROUGH SURFACES.

What is peel + stick?

This means there will be no holes on the face of your number and an outdoor rated adhesive tape already applied to the back. You will need to clean your surface, peel the backing off of the adhesive and stick into place. ADHESIVE OPTION NOT FOR USE ON STUCCO OR ROUGH SURFACES. Instructions for application are included with your order. *COLD WEATHER ALERT* must be mounted in temperatures over 50F or 10C.

How do I install numbers with screws?

1. Use a template. Find them hereOr space out the numbers on the wall, using masking tape to temporarily hold them in place and using a level to make sure they are straight.
2. When you are satisfied with the placement, predrill the screw holes – using the holes in the numbers as a guide.
3. Fasten with screws and stand offs, using the holes you
just drilled.
4. Remove template and you are done!

Why are the numbers different sizes? I thought I ordered them all the same

The numbers and letters can vary slightly in height and width, even if you order all the same height. This is because font designers usually make digits with curves on top or bottom to be taller. It helps them appear more uniform visually and is not a defect. However sometimes this can make them appear larger or smaller than the digit beside it. If you have questions or would like to see a preview of your digits before ordering, please email You can also download and print free templates here to see them and help with visualizing them in your space.
