Exquisite house number signs, traditional craft
When you create a living space, everything matters: the building materials, the furniture, the light fixtures. You tend to every detail–inside and out. We place the same care in the design and fabrication of our enamel house number plaques. Made to order, our signs reflect the beauty of everyday objects.
The beauty of everyday design
In 1991, we revived the traditional hand stenciling technique and now produce authentic high-end residential signage, including house numbers, address plaques, door signs and nameplates. Every personalized house number comes with a lifetime warranty, guaranteed to maintain its original hue.
The History of Enameled Number signs
As modern-day house numbering systems began to emerge in the nineteenth-century Europe, enameled porcelain signs became ubiquitous throughout northern Europe. By the 1850s, porcelain house numbers and street signs were produced in large quantities, albeit by hand. Traditionally fabricated with a rich blue background and white numbers, this color combination became characteristic of the era. Sometimes referred to as “French house numbers”, these handcrafted and weatherproof house numbers became less available by the end of the Second World War, when other forms of sign production replaced older techniques.

A modern house number, traditional craft
The modern house number is not simply a marker to identify a location and orient visitors. When well-designed, a house or door number can complement an architectural design, complete the details of the facade, or simply give a personal touch to the public face of your dwelling.
Why are enamel number plates so hard to find?
If you walk the streets of Copenhagen, Paris, or Berlin, it is not hard to find examples of vintage enameled house number plaques. A closer look will even reveal regional styles. But if you want one of these gems for your house, authentic reproductions are difficult to find.
In the 1800s, handcrafted porcelain enamel address numbers and street signs were produced in large quantities. Durable and weather resistant, these glossy signs were the perfect adornment for the streets of northern Europe. However, by the end of the World War II, new production techniques had replaced traditional ones. Porcelain enameled signs became scarce – until we revived the art of producing them. Today, Ramsign is one of the few fabricators who still carries on the tradition.

From Our Kiln to Your Door
What gives our address numbers their charm? Every piece we produce and ship is individually made.
We fabricate our signs layer by layer, using a precise heating process. First, we apply the background color to the sign’s metal base. Next, we kiln-fire the sign so the enamel sets. After the base color cools, house numbers are stenciled on by hand. The sign is fired again at a new temperature.
Although the process is controlled, there will always be slight environmental variations in the kiln. As a result, no two house number plaques are the exactly the same.
Styled after the traditional European blue enamel signs, Metropolitan house numbers define our classic collection. Often called “French house numbers”, our traditional Metropolitan signs are our most popular style. Our authentic recreation features classic numbers, a single trim, and a glossy enamel finish.
Framed with decorative double trim, our white Highlander house numbers mix high gloss with elegant lines. With its clean lines, the Highlander series is striking in its simplicity. The black outer border protects the edges of the house number signs, while providing an elegant frame.
