Modern House Numbers

The perfect font underscores meaning and brings another dimension, whether humor, elegance, nostalgia, to words on a page. Major publications like The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vogue and many others all use recognizable fonts that are uniquely their own.

That's why we like the fonts we found at They have an easy to understand website with a limited number of choices. But they've been able to include over 40 fonts we know and love, from Americana Bold to University Roman Bold, to create house numbers for anybody's taste.

We chose Ribbon for the modernist's home.

For an Arts and Crafts style, we like Roffe.

Other sites, like offer several more choices, making it much more difficult to decide. We loved that CustomHouseNumbers broke their fonts into categories like Neutraface, and Early to Mid-Century, but the later category was empty. Their Mixed Eras section is good and allows you to put your own address in so you can see just how your numbers would look.
