Back40Life address decals allow your address to be visible for UPS, FedEx, Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, UberEats, and Walmart deliveries who need to find your location, elevating your home's curb appeal and giving your mailbox an artistic aspect. We offer dozens of classic, modern, and whimsical designs for your address decal, and multiple layouts to fit all mailbox types.

Style Considerations - Address Lettering Offered in 2 Styles

ย Decal: The decal's lettering is cut out of the vinyl and does not feature a background color. The application tape laid over your decal will allow you to apply your cut lettering all at one time. When your decal is applied, it will look like your address has been expertly painted onto the surface of your mailbox.

ย 

Background Sticker: A sticker decal features a colored background, which you can choose from any of our available colors (minus reflective white) and you choose a different, contrasting color for the lettering. These stickers will be sent in one piece and can be peeled off of the transfer paper and applied as a whole.ย

Decal Durability

ย It's important to choose the right material that will stick to all surfaces including steel, aluminum and plastic, and the vinyl we chose is great for all of those surfaces and has the ability to withstand harsh weather conditions.ย It is rated for 3-4 years of outdoor use or more, depending on your mailbox's location and the amount of sun exposure received throughout the day. Many customers have come back to us after 6-7 years stating that their decal just now needs refreshing.

ย 

Size Considerations

ย Consider the size of your mailbox before choosing the size to purchase. To determine the best size for your personal mailbox, measure the available space on the side of your mailbox and choose the sizes available accordingly. If one of our sizes does not work for your mailbox, or you have a designated space that is different than our offered sizes, contact us and we will happy to see what we can do to help!ย  Our listings have the dimensions of each size in our listing pictures: https://back40life.com/collections/address-decals

Color Options

We offer a variety of colors for our address decals. Our white vinyl stands out well against any darker mailbox surface and is easily read. The reflective vinyl is the same in those regards, but it has a silvery sheen to it during the day, and it is also highly visible at night, reflecting any light that shines its way. If your street is fairly dark at night with few street lights, reflective white will help out any service needing to find your location in the dark. Some HOAs and other areas require reflective vinyl lettering for emergency services. We have non-metallic textures for gold, silver, copper, and rose gold coloring available.
