First impressions really do count, at least we think they do!
Just as we meet someone for the first time, we have already made an initial first impression in the first few seconds of our encounter.
This can also be said of the times we park up to the kerb of a house and glance over at the front door.
If its the postman delivering your daily mail or friends coming over to visit, house number plaques also serve a practical purpose when trying to locate you.
So in choosing a house plaque, it needs to be stylish, easy to read and since it is going to be outside for all of it's life, it will need to withstand the worst of our British weather.
Advances in manufacturing and product development means you can now have all the above without having to stick to traditional materials.
Acrylics are now made to look like real glass but afford better qualities in the fact that the material is lighter, safer and easy peasy to install.
The link below shows Avalon house plaques that are not made from glass but are in fact made from acrylic, so if it is advertised as looking like glass, make sure it really does look like glass. The special manufacture of the acrylic produces a green tinge around the edges , unlike standard manufacture which provides only a clear edge.
With an ethos of providing visually stunning and practical house plaques for the design conscious home owner, Avalon Plaques was founded in 2007.
