PRODUCT DESCRIPTION ----------------------------------------------------

Our Gibson Custom mailbox -- our most popular design -- can be customized with up to five numbers (we offer our Gibson Classic if your mailbox does not need customization; please see the listing here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/96833456/the-gibson-mailbox-classic? ). The face plate is composed of 1/4" steel, and the sides are made of 14 gauge steel to provide utility and keep the overall weight of the mailbox down. The numbers on the face of the mailbox measure 3" in height. Please scroll through the pictures above to see the dimensions.

This mailbox is designed to be a wall-mount mailbox, with protection from direct rain or snow. We do not recommend this mailbox be mounted on a gate, fence, or post as there are mounting holes in the back which prevent the mailbox from being fully waterproof with direct exposure to the elements.

PLEASE NOTE: we are only able to offer customization with your house numbers; unfortunately, we cannot do last names or other words on the mailbox.

WEATHERING --------------------------------------------------------------------------

As with all of our products, the raw steel will eventually develop a brown patina over time with natural weathering. The rate at which this rusting happens varies with exposure to the elements and climate. You can forestall this process (but not eliminate it altogether) by treating your item with a clear coat product such as a Rustoleum spray product from your local hardware store. Each product will require multiple treatments over time to avoid and delay the natural rust process, though neither will guarantee a 100% rust free surface. We recommend applying the clear coat before you mount your item as the rusting process can begin immediately.

PURCHASING INFORMATION -------------------------------------------------------

When ordering, please choose a font style (please refer to the chart above to the four different options. Also, please list your house numbers in the "notes" section upon checkout. Please allow 2-3 weeks fabrication time. Upon completion, we will send you shipping notification and tracking information.
