You know how they say “time is money” well I have to agree, especially with the price of gas right now. There are few things I hate more than being unable to find where I am going because I can’t see the signs with the address or house number clearly stated. For stores I may end up driving around simply because they don’t have a custom address plaques and in the end I may not even shop there.
I often get solicitations taped to my door about painting a number on my curb so that emergency services, mail delivery, guest and neighbors can find me easier. But why would I want to paint something on my curb, that in the end if going to need touched up from time to time and is so low to the ground that it may be missed? I personally would prefer to put some effort into a quality personalized address plaques for the entry way, especially when in some cases if you purchase one online you may even get a free solar light.
When I am headed to a playdate I love when I see residential address plaques on the home, especially the first time I am there, because there is nothing more embarrassing than pulling up, getting the kids out of the car and then finding out it is the wrong house. Especially when I come bearing gifts like a dish to share for lunch or snack.
So it is possible to save time and money, as well as my gas, and maybe even save you money when selling your home, as plaques provides a lot more curb appeal than a painted on number on your curb – even if it does glow in the dark.
