When you are traveling to a destination, the first thing you look for when you are close to your location is the building, office, or residence address number. They are one of the most looked upon sign types which assure visitors that they have arrived at the right place. From house number signs to building signs, there are a lot of choices in terms of materials, designs, shapes, and sizes.
Address signs are important as they help people find and identify buildings. If your building doesn’t have an address sign, it makes is difficult for people to find you. A good rule of thumb is if customers and clients are visiting your location or you receive mail and packages on site, then an address sign is a necessity!
Address signs aren’t only for ease of business, there are also regulatory requirements for address signs to assist emergency services to find a location in need of immediate assistance whether it is a fire, health care emergency or security issues. In general, requirements for emergency services mandate that basic address numbers should at least be 4-inches in size and height, with a thick enough brush stroke to be seen from a distance. Contrasting colors should be used as well as good lighting so that your sign can remain visible even in the dark. Municipalities typically provide the detailed requirements for your area. As important as these signs are, it is remarkable how little we think of address signs.
You don’t have to stop with just the basic requirements though. Where’s the fun in that. More importantly, it’s a great way to reflect the personality of the location. Whether you want to show a little bit of your character on the front facade of your residential home or you manage a business and you want everything you display to reflect your brand. Address signs can be a great way to showcase some of your identity. You can appear classy and refined or whimsical and fun to show what you are about.
There are many options available to show off your personality or business. Dimensional numbers in metal, acrylic and formed plastic materials are good options for building numbers to meet the emergency services requirements. Cast plaques in aluminum, brass and bronze can really make an upscale impression. Carved HDU panels also create an upscale appearance and offer lots of options in regards to design features, color and graphic images.
Whatever underlying trait you want to subtly communicate to the outside world about you, your home, or your business, you can do it with a high quality, durable, well-made address sign.
