This veteran house number has been through the wars and has ended up stamped on the wall in a style more suited to a crate of army rifles than a house sign.
Or I’ll have your sorry guts for supper, GI!

If house numbers could scream, this one definitely would. Yes, if you live in a hot part of the country, your house number may be suffering from heat stroke. It’s quite easy to detect. The thing is turning to cinders before your eyes. Why not order a lovely round address sign from the House Number Shop? It’ll be so cool.

If your house numbers are on the decrease then it’s time to think about getting one that won’t fall off, won’t get vandalized and will help people find your house. It’s really simple. Order a neat secure house number from the House Number Shop. It’s as easy as falling off a wall.

This here is a full-sized logging trolley with three logs on it. Painted on the end of the top log are the names of the occupants of the timber house in the background and the house number: 708 Oak Street.
Get it? Oak Street? A sign made of actual trees!
They must have more easy going postal carriers where they live, because our postal carrier would probably refuse to deliver mail if I tried to get away with something like that. I’d have to add a lawn house number from The House Number Shop, because I feel certain that we’d never get mail otherwise.

If you live where the snow drives down and the wind blows it about, then it is definitely not advisable to have a house sign that lets snow collect and stick onto it. Get yourself a granite and pewter house number from The House Number Shop. You don’t want to miss out on those important holiday visitors.

When you put a house number outside your house or apartment it’s really, really important to find out your address first. This house number is probably 36 BUT MAYBE NOT! It could be 38. Or 36 – 38. Or the door to 38 has been bricked. Or No 38 is upstairs. Or something.

Here we have a classic case of numerical rotting disease (NRD) which afflicts mainly even numbers (though not prime numbers) and is specially vicious in multiples of fifteen, ten and five. This interesting case was brought to the attention of the NRD Emergency Clinic (NRD) of the NYHCCH who rushed to the scene with cameras and face masks. It wasn’t long before they had wrestled the number to the ground and placed it in a zipped bag. The owner of No 30 should consider a ceramic house number from The House Number Shop to avoid a long spell in a federal penitentiary for neglecting his number.
