Make your own house number sign: the basics
The first thing to decide when making your house number is which material to use. Choose a colour to suit your taste and determine what size your house number should be. Are you going for coloured acrylic? Do you like the look of aluminium sandwich panels, or do you fancy stainless steel house numbers? In our webshop, you’ll find a wide range of materials suitable for making house numbers. We laser cut all figures for you in whatever size you like. Use special spacers to mount your house number (s) neatly or attach them using a sealant adhesive. Do you have a two-digit house number? Why not link them neatly side by side at the front door!
DIY acrylic house number plate ideas
Matte black house numbers, white glossy house numbers or coloured house numbers: when you’re talking about house number plates in acrylic, the possibilities are endless! Work out the thickness and size you need, and we’ll laser cut the figures to the millimetre. You can mount your acrylic house numbers using spacers or by glueing them, as shown in the example below with house number 8. Are you attaching your house number with adhesive? Be sure to use double-sided tape to hold your house number in position until the adhesive forms a strong bond.

Making an aluminium house number
Aluminium sandwich panels, also known as alupanel / Dibond®, are ideal for making house numbers for your front door. House numbers in this material give a luxurious look. For example, choose a house number plate with a stainless steel look and house numbers made of brushed aluminium for an eye-catching effect. Silver house numbers look equally effective. Alupanel house numbers can also be attached with spacers as well as with sealant adhesive. See how to do it in the images below.
