The damage screws do to doors



Sometimes when you go to put a new number or letter on your door, you have to whack out your drill and screw kit. Not anymore! With our easy stick-on numbers and letters, our products require no specialist equipment, which is much better for the condition of your door.

But why exactly are screws so bad for your front door?

  1. They leave a permanent hole in your door, which isn’t great if you want to change the style of the number on your door or the position. The hole can only disappear if you fill it, which is more hassle than what it’s worth.
  1. It's possible that if you are drilling into a wooden door, the drill and screw could split the wood. This would mean you have a broken door and you have to go out and buy a new one, which is not cheap. Why not save yourself a new front door and use a risk-free stick-on number or letter. 
  1. As well as potentially splitting the wood of your door, the screw could get stuck in your door or you could drill it the wrong way and it could break. Stick-on, adhesive door numbers and letters eliminate all of these problems by having a simple peel-off back that takes only two seconds to apply.
  1. If you drill a hole in the wrong place, there will be a random hole in your door for no reason, unless you choose to hang the Christmas wreath from here through the holidays. However, throughout the rest of the year, the random hole in your door will just look untidy. Which is why stick-on numbers are such a great idea.


Screws do damage doors, and there are lots of things that could go wrong. To make sure you have a stress-free application process, choose stick-on door numbers and letters.
