About Us


Housenumbers Limited is a family run e-commerce business based in Blandford Forum, Dorset.

We believe in supporting British jobs and manufacturing, which is why all our products are designed and hand finished in-house, after being laser cut here in the UK! We also believe in offering outstanding customer care and every order is important to us, from each online retail order to large scale corporate orders for new-build estates, and every beautiful bespoke sign in between; we will make sure you are delivered a high quality service and product. Twice a month we batch-produce bespoke signage to our customers' specific requirements, and we specialise in helping you create something truly unique for your home.

The company was established in 2005 by Katherine Ellis, after her family failed to find a house number they loved for a new house extension. Our number 17 in a circle, which now forms part of our corporate image, was admired by friends and neighbours to such an extent that the business just took off from word of mouth recommendations. It is now run by Katherine and husband Charles and daughter Josie, plus their small and dedicated team who help bring everything together:

Katherine - chief production manager, bespoke sales designer, corporate order manager and everything in between!
Charles - resident CAD design expert, metal workshop & assembly manager, and electronics supervisor.
Josie - bespoke sales designer, product photographer, social media & marketing manager.

Fiona - admin and despatch assistant who ticks off the orders and gets them out the door.
Gary - our expert metalworker who hand finishes your orders.
Paul - electronics workshop assistant for all our LED signs.

Margot - the family dog who makes us smile every day!

Our stainless steel ranges have grown over time and now include a huge variety of fonts and styles, as well as products made by other British associate designers such as Tim Carter.
