Hickman Yard Sign
Welcome Home. This modern address plaque on stakes adds instant curb appeal to your home with rustic metal and modern aluminum street numbers.
This address plaque is made to order in Austin, TX and is constructed of 14 gauge steel with a hand-finished and sealed rust patina. Due to the nature of iron and the hand-finish we provide, the patina will contain unique variations. As with all iron, rusting will occur, the sealant used will slow the process but will not eliminate it. This plaque features (2) metal stakes (finished in the same patina) that easily slide in to two holes located on the back of the plaque (see pictures)..
4" solid aluminum numbers are included and come with industrial strength magnets attached (aka rare earth or neodymium magnets). They are easy to install and will stay put in all weather conditions.
Available finishes and fonts:
Brushed aluminum (silver) in a clean, modern font or brass powder coated numbers (gold tone) in mid-century "futura" font.
Overall: 20"W x 8"H
Street Numbers: 4"H
Stake Length: 22"
Installation Method (VERY important, please read):
1) Slide both stakes into the designated holes located on the back of the plaque, hold stakes in place so they do not fall out.
2) Using both hands, push stakes and plaque into the ground as much as possible (It may help to get the soil wet before you install). This will ensure that you are hammering the stakes in at the correct distance apart from each other.
3) Take the plaque off the stakes BEFORE you begin hammering the stakes into the ground with a rubber mallet. This is VERY important because pounding the top of the stakes with the plaque installed can damage the plaque and the finish.
4) Once you have hammered the stakes to your desired height, slide the plaque down on the stakes.
5) Welcome Home!
Note: Neodymium magnets should be handled with care. They can damage electronics and interfere with pace makers.
