The font goes perfectly with my mid-century modern home. I bought 1 of the 4 numerals I needed before I ordered the rest just to check out the quality. These are definitely nice quality numerals, though probably not the highest quality. For the price, they are excellent. They are made of metal (some other reviewer said they were plastic; they're not). However, I believe these would serve best if viewed from a distance. Up close, you can make out either imperfections from the molding process, fine lines from the polishing/burr removal process, or both. From a distance it is not an issue, but if you wanted to use them, say, on an office reception area wall where people could get a close look, you may want to find higher quality numerals.
I accidentally discovered an alternative to using the templates found folded in cardboard package backing (which I didn't know were there until afterwards). The plastic packaging front is "molded" to the exact shape as the numeral. I glued each plastic "mold" onto a piece of wood and arranged them exactly like I wanted the numerals lined up on my mounting surface. I then dropped the metal numerals loose into the "molds" and they were are lined up and nicely spaced and leveled as I wanted them. I wanted to float mount them on a metal I-Beam and did not (could not) drill holes onto the steel as directed to float mount them with the included hardware. I ended up hack sawing off the part of the float mounts that were supposed to sink into the mounting surface. This left a flat metal mount that I applied glue (J-B Weld) to mount them on the I-Beam. I just had to carefully position the piece of wood with the pre-aligned plastic "molds" and press the whole set of numerals directly on the I-Beam all at once. I secured the piece of wood so it put even pressure on the numerals and gave the glue time to dry. Once done, I just lifted off the "molds" and I had a perfectly aligned set of numbers.
