Information on letterbox signs

It’s nice to have a letterbox sign, and it also clearly indicates to the world who lives in the home or who the letterbox belongs to.

A letterbox sign might not be an actual requirement from the paperboy or postman, but it makes their work easier and ensures you get your post. A letterbox name plate is also a first welcoming gesture for visitors.

When selecting a sign to fix to a letterbox, there are several important aspects to consider. Apart from choosing the right colour, shape and design, it can be useful to review some of the more common text types that can be found on letterbox signs. Our plastic signs are 1.6 mm thick.

Designing a suitable letterbox sign

Name label on letterbox

This is a smaller form of letterbox name plate. In terms of text, it normally only features a surname or business name. A name label is a simple way of indicating who lives or works in a building.

“Lives here” sign 

This is a more personal version of a letterbox name plate. Below the name, you can include the text “lives here”, which of course in one sense is obvious, but it makes your letterbox sign more welcoming. 

Last name/full name 

A name plate for a letterbox can include either just the last name of the people living in the house, or both their first name and surname. This is a matter of taste, but for those living in an apartment block where several people may have the same last name, it might be useful to also include the first name on the letterbox.

Address 

In addition to including a name on a letterbox sign, it is also possible to print the address. This can prove useful if, for instance, there is no sign on the outside of the building showing the address, thus making it easier for delivery men and postmen.

Informative post box name plates

Design your very own post box name plate with informative text - e.g. no junk mail, family members or is it a special newspaper you want in your post box? Don't forget to mention it on your post box name plate. 

Adding your house number to your letter box is a nice touch and increases the chances for your mail end up in the right letter box.

Choose a letterbox sign with care – even a small sign can convey important information.
