Address Sign Text Size:
We offer 3", 4", 5", and 6" high characters on our signs. 4" characters are the default on our signs and the most popular size for residential buildings. 5" characters are required by some counties for residential buildings. 6" characters are the typical size for apartment and commercial buildings. Some fire departments or municipalities require 3" as the minimum and 4" as the maximum. See table below to determine which character sizes are available for each sign size.
We have the capability of making our address signs any length using any text size requirements, but online we only offer 8 sizes and four standard text sizes of 3", 4", 5" and 6".
Font Style Options
Safetysign.com will use the font below known as the FHWA Series fonts (also known as Standard Alphabets for Highway Signs) when producing your 911 address signs. This font offers several variations of character compression and character spacing — the correct version will be selected by us when producing your signs. The selection will be based on the length of the street address versus the length of the sign ordered.
