What Size?

What size sign letters should you order?

This page will help guide you in answering that question. 

All our signs are measured by CAP height. If your sign has a descender the overall footprint of the sign will be larger. Keep this in mind if your address sign is on a beam, entryway or trim.

Capital letter heights vary and may not all measure the same height. Some may be slightly smaller than the size you purchased depending on the font and text. Example: The “E” below measures 10 inches and the “F” measures 9.8 inches and the top to the bottom is 14 inches. 

5 Inch Minimum

We offer address signs from 5 inches letter height to 12 inches tall and even larger. The 5 inch minimum size is measured from the capitol letter height. The reason is because our sign letters have drill and tapped holes on the back to secure to the wall. The smaller fonts are too thin and the letters are not able to be machined properly. 

This Address Sign Sizing Guide will help you determine your sign size only if you are installing above a garage.
