EYE ON DESIGN: House Numbers Count

Fire departments want house numbers to be easy to read from the street. I think they should also give your address a little zip. After all they’re the finishing touch for your new house. A little research reveals that many  typefaces found in word processing programs are available as address numbers. Here’s a sampling from WestOn Letters:


Times New Roman in white baked enamel.

Roman in green baked enamel.


Bodoni Condensed in oxidized bronze.
WestOn Letters offers easy instructions for attaching. Prices, which start at around  $30 per number, vary according to style, height, and finish.
