If you have decided on what kind of mailbox you need and chosen which type of wood to use for your post, the next decision is how you will display your address on the side of the box. A couple of options for address lettering and numbering are to paint them on or place them on with a stick-on. Below are the benefits of each:
Vinyl stick on numbers and letters are available at most big box home improvement stores. These aren’t very attractive or professional looking, but they get the job done. This is a good option if you live in a rural area and not a community where all the mailboxes must match. Also, it takes a steady hand to make sure all the letters line up correctly.
If you are looking for a consistent “hand painted” look, using the vinyl transfer lettering is the best option. You can choose from a number of font styles and colors to compliment the color of your mailbox. Vinyl transfer lettering is commonly used in neighborhoods where all the mailbox units match. Since vinyl transfer letters and numbers are formatted on a computer, alignment and character spacing is already taken care of.
