Choose Dard Hunter Style numbers. Reproductions of a typeface from the 1900s, they're available in copper (shown), brass, aluminum, and black powder coat. The four-inch numbers can be mounted with just a couple of nails.
No porch light? No problem. Matter's solar designs soak up energy from the sun all day, then use it to power two white LEDs at night. The numbers, laser-cut in an aluminum plate, are four inches tall. Available in silver and black.
Chaenomeles' 4 1/2-inch solid copper numbers are welded to a bar with two 18-inch legs. Because the pieces are custom-made, they take about eight weeks for delivery. Just think of the grass-is-greener envy they'll inspire in the neighbors.
Spare your guests turnarounds by placing your address on Whitehall's post at the end of the driveway. It comes in white, dark bronze, or black; the peel-and-stick numbers come in nickel, brass, or dark bronze.
