House Beautiful feature on signage
We’re delighted that our Hummingbird house sign, designed by Francesca Grace of Brighton, has featured in a round-up of signage ideas in House Beautiful magazine online.
The article is full of pretty basic facts on how to choose a house sign and the usual conventional designs. It’s a shame they didn’t approach Selene Signs for more information, or we could have told them that house signs can be the equivalent of having artwork at your door – it can be enjoyable for its own sake. Or how much fun you can have in choosing a design and wording. For the cost of a bunch of flowers you can display a sign that raises a smile from your visitors and can be changed easily if you tire of it.
I’m not saying the article isn’t useful, as there are facts about house naming and applying for recognition by the Post Office. But as long as your official street number is displayed prominently you can also give your house whatever name you like and yes, we’re talking about you – ‘The Box of Frogs’ – in Topsham, Devon
