Leave This to a Professional
There are a few reasons why DIY-ing your house numbers might not be the best idea. First of all, if you get the numbers wrong or mismatched, it can be confusing for people trying to find your house. Additionally, making sure the lettering is neat and legible is a lot harder than it seems - and if it's not done well, it can look messy or even unprofessional.
Finally, many homeowners associations have rules about what kind of house number signage can be displayed, and they may not allow residents to DIY their own numbers. In general, it's probably best to leave this job to a professional.
