If you recently moved to Florence, you may be concerned about your mail being forwarded properly. The use of mailbox name tags will allow your postal delivery person to accustom themselves to dropping off mail at your new residence. Name tags are often made of vinyl or metal and can be affixed along the front, top, or sides of a mailbox. 

The Use Of Tags

If you have ever received mail that did not belong to you, you are aware of how easily this type of mistake can occur. Mail may get mixed up due to a wide range of reasons. Someone new to a neighborhood may not be automatically recognized when it comes time to hand deliver mail to their residence. A new postal carrier may make occasional mistakes too. They may not be accustomed to delivering mail in a particular region, which could ultimately result in some mail pieces being delivered to the wrong address.

Tags are designed to give a mailbox a professional or decorative appearance. Tags can be used to identify each occupant who you reside with, plus the street address that you have recently moved to. Tags are weather resistant and are designed according to a client's preferences. A supplier of custom tags will furnish dimensions for each tag product, plus will specify the manner in which a tag will need to be installed.

The Shopping Process

Online tag retailers will list colorful photos and descriptions that will guide you in ordering one or more tags. First, review some online distributors. Consider the design of your mailbox when shopping for a tag. Maybe you own a metal box and would like to order a custom Florence tag that will be a complementary color and shape to the box. If so, shop for products that will stand out and truly customize your box. 

Next, consider how a tag system needs to be secured. A supplier of tags may require that screws are used to attach a tag. A tag may also be designed to be secured to a bracket that attaches directly to a mailbox. Take measurements of your box and order one or more tags that will fit well on the outside of the box. Some tag products may contain a luminescent property. This type of tag may light up at night, which will further aid with ensuring that your mail is delivered to the proper address.
