You only get one chance to make
a first impression.
Make it count.
Orthografica uses environmental demands, architecture and wayfinding to design thoughtful house numbers and plaques.
We use sustainable materials and all of our address numbers and plaques are made in North America.
Founded by Dian Morin in 2003,
Orthografica Inc is one of the
most respected signage firms
in the North America.
After 14 years in business, we decided it was time to make custom address numbers and plaques more accessible to individuals. If you’re an architect, a designer or a homeowner, you will be thrilled by how easy it is to design and order custom numbers.
WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT WHAT MY ADDRESS LOOKS LIKE?
What's the first thing you see when you're going to someone's home for the first time? What are you seeking out, like a hawk looking for its prey? Their address, of course! And you know what they say about first impressions; you only get one chance at 'em.
You might not always take note of the detail that goes into creating address numbers, but you sure as heck notice when you can't find it — either because it is too small, too dark, hidden or worse, ABSENT! You no longer need to resign yourself to off-the-shelf tacky numbers and plaques that don’t suit your house.
SO, HOW DOES IT WORK?
Just fill out our form and one of our associates will get back to you within the next few (working) hours with a visual proposal and a quote for the options you selected. Once we get your approval of the drawings, we'll go ahead and start production. You can expect to have your address within 2-4 weeks. It’s that simple.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT?
No problem! That’s why we’re here. You can email us a picture of your house and indicating where you imagine the numbers and the dimensions available for your address. We’ll send you 4 options of what we think would look nice. Send the email to firstname.lastname@example.org
WHO IS GOING TO INSTALL MY ADDRESS NUMBERS?
You! Or a handy person you know. But anyone equipped with a drill can do it. Our numbers are stud mounted on the back and a template is supplied for installation. All you need to do is drill the holes and insert your numbers. Voila!
If you want to be extra safe, you can squeeze a bit of glue or silicone into the holes before you insert the studs in.
HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?
Our address numbers and plaques are built to last as long as your house. That's a guarantee!*
*No really, it is.
