Heatlie Letterboxes offers a range of set designs to base your custom faceplate on. These designs are based on what we observed to be the most popular among customers, looks the best, and are practical and straightforward to manufacture.
We offer these designs with the hope of encompassing all the different styles of letterbox faceplates that anyone would want.
They still retain customisation aspects though, with almost everything within the set template being up to your choice. Check out how you can customise your faceplate in our other blog, our custom faceplate guide.
The purpose of this post is to showcase our options and give you a run down on what we offer with some examples.
Landscape: 390w x 200h
Portrait: 290w x 200h
Option 1 is only slightly larger than a standard Superior faceplate (390 or 290w x 190h), being 10mm higher. Unlike a standard faceplate however, it gives you the ability to have a water jet cut out number.
This plate is generally best for when you don't care to display your street name. It is number centric as due to the limited space, there isn't really any room for anything more than a 75mm high number.
Landscape: 390w x 250h
Portrait: 290w x 250h
This option keeps a similar principle to Option 1, but allows extra room for your street name. It generally looks best centred, but with any of our designs, simply place a note in the comments if you would like it aligned to the left or right.
Landscape: 390w x 450h
Portrait: 290w x 350h
Option 3 goes for a much more elongated vertical style, giving room for 3 lines of your address. This is handy for long street names and similarly vertically elongated pillars and walls.
Option 4 & 5
Landscape: 650w x 220h
Portrait: 550w x 220h
These two are the same design, but one facing each direction. With a wider plate, it allows the number to be put on full display, while still giving the street name some room to shine. These work well on a large open space like a brick or rendered wall, or a long picket fence.
Landscape: 390w x 390h
Portrait: 290w x 290h
Option 6 is a fully square style and is quite versatile in terms of where it will look good. Being quite large, it basically encapsulates options 1 through 3 as it could be used for just having one big number, or a full address over two or three lines.
Beyond our set templates, we can still do faceplates cut to custom sizes. This is handy if you have a fence or wall that is restricting you size wise, or you may have grand plans for a special design.
This just means that you'll have to notify us of the custom dimensions. They still need to fit inside certain parameters such as...
- No bigger than 700w x 700h
- No smaller than 290w x 190h
This is due to manufacturing restrictions as well as Australia Post regulations on letterbox sizes.
Custom sizes can still be ordered online, just by selecting the most similar option and noting the desired dimensions in the order comments.
For extra custom, (700x700 or above) please email us with a concept design of what you are after so we can quote accordingly.
