About Us

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

The company was established in 2005 by Katherine & Charles Ellis, after their 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 day to day by daughter Josie, with Katherine and Charles still on board, plus their small and dedicated team who help bring everything together:

    Josie keeps the place running day to day, manages our corporate customers & is our marketing manager

    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.

    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 glass designer Tim Carter and door mat makers Mattify, who made our door mat for the workshop, pictured below and now sell on our site!
