Address Plaques

Personalized House Signs and House Plaques

Beautiful House address signs, enduring style

Designing a home or building a business is a labour of love–so is crafting our personalised plaques. We work with simple, sustainable materials. Most importantly, we take the time to hand stencil every line with precision. Vibrantly coloured, each address sign we produce is a unique piece that can last a lifetime.

Address plates designed to be visible

Typically a larger format than our house numbers and nameplates, our address signs offer the greatest visual impact. Because size and spacing of characters can be adjusted, the lettering can be refined to increase legibility from a distance.

From Our Kiln to Your Door

Like our signature house numbers and nameplates, our home address signs are fabricated in Europe using time-tested techniques. The first step of the process involves combining a finely crushed mixture of silica and fluxes—a composition known as frit—with metal oxide. This composite powder is then applied to the metal base of the address plaque and placed in a kiln. At high temperatures, the frit fuses to make the porcelain enamel. During the firing, the metal oxide will react, giving the the address plaque its unique, rich colour. With their durable porcelain enamel finishes and high contrasting colour combinations, our hand-stencilled address plaques stand out for their beauty and craftsmanship.

Why were porcelain enamel address signs used throughout Northern Europe?

Porcelain enamel signs–unlike exposed metal signs or wood signs–have an added layer of protection that give them an advantage. Porcelain enamel is glass-based coating that bonds to metal when heated. When hardened, the enamel is smooth, yet strong. This glaze shields the metal base from the harshest elements. Because of their durability, house address signs were widely manufactured and used in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and other Northern European countries the 19th century. Known for their vividness and crisp presentation, enamel address signs also provided an aesthetic quality.
