House numbers…functionally we need them to identify our homes for visitors and emergency responders but shouldn’t they also be visually appealing? Modern House Numbers does just that by offering high quality and affordable address numbers, mailbox numbers and curb stencils for the modern dweller. Now offering more than numbers; check out their letters, symbols and custom plaques.

Modern House Numbers was started in 2008 by two young architects who wanted to make a personal statement on their own home without breaking the bank. They now offer well-designed products to other homeowners like you.

Simply type your address into and you can automatically preview your address in a variety of modern fonts. Complete your vision by selecting the height of your aluminum house numbers, color of your mailbox numbers and curb stencil. Your neighbors will envy your new curb appeal!
