Information on house name plates

A house name plate can be impersonal and purely informative, or welcoming and familiar. Neither option is necessarily better than the other. Everything rather depends on what awaits inside the front door.

Nowadays, different sign makers offer different signage on the Internet and it might be difficult to know which house sign is the best alternative for you. Are you looking for slate house signs, wooden house signs or clear glass signs with house numbers? Find your favourite among our range. Create your personalised house name plates using our Design Page.

The important thing is for the house name plates to reflect the right feeling. What do you want to convey with your personalised sign?

Many individuals and businesses choose to have a house name plate. Size and design vary greatly, but they all fill a similar function – to welcome visitors.

Modern house name plates – a variety of designs

Signomatic is a sign maker offering a huge range of bespoke signs. With us, you can customise house name plates in any way you want. Thanks to our wide range of materials, you can personalise your own house sign and come up with just the right sign for your house or gate.

Double layered signs

Our modern house name plates and house number signs lend an air of style to your home or enhance your company’s professional image. Contemporary house name plates can vary widely in design, but the one that has perhaps proved most popular is double-layered acrylic with an aluminium back panel.

With a standoff, this type of house sign stands out slightly from the wall, creating an attractive impression, no matter what surface it is mounted on. This makes it incredibly popular with businesses, but also with homeowners.

Printed aluminium house name plates

Fit a house name plaque that attracts attention! Why not consider a printed silver aluminium house name plate with the house number and street name on it? An aluminium house sign can easily be attached to the building façade or the gate, depending on where you want your sign to be visible from. We always supply signs with screws and pre-drilled holes.

Glass-like clear acrylic house signs

We also offer house name plates in clear acrylic made from perspex, which is a material guaranteed to last 7 to 10 years outdoors, although it is also suitable for internal use. The panel, which is 6 mm thick, is available as transparent or with a frosted effect.

Anyone wanting a white or coloured surface simply needs to choose their preferred colour from the options on our Design Page. This unique tool offers everything you could possibly want to create a house name plate to suit your needs.

House name plates– text variants

Welcome – This is one of the more common options. A welcoming message on a welcoming sign. Remember that it is the design of the plate that largely determines how welcoming it will be perceived as, not the text itself.

Family name – “Welcome to the … family” A nice personal way of giving visitors a first impression. Usually only the family surname is included, but some people also include the first names of family members to make the plate more personal.

The name of the house/estate – People living in an older house or on a larger estate can also include the name of the building/estate. This highlights its history and makes the house more personal.

Name and number - Where the house number is not clearly indicated in any other way, a house name plate can be used to do this. Some people also include the street name.
