There are many different possible installation methods and configurations for mailboxes, including onto existing wooden posts, along mounting rails with other mailboxes, inside of masonry columns, or onto optional manufactured posts. Because of the great variety of possible mounting options, it is not feasible for mailbox manufacturers to include hardware for every possible variation. However, the appropriate hardware is included with all the different post and accessory products we make. If you buy one of our posts, it will include the correct hardware to properly and securely mount one of our mailboxes.
For wall mount mailboxes, we offer up to 6, half-inch, vinyl characters. For our post mount mailboxes, we offer up to 8, one and a half inch to three inch, vinyl characters for the front and up to 16, one and a half inch to three inch characters, per side.
Our custom lettering is available in Black, White, Metallic Bronze, Metallic Copper, Metallic Gold, Metallic Light Bronze, Metallic Pewter, and Metallic Silver.
If you have a small blemish on your product, contact us to order touch-up paint. We have touch-up paint for every powder coat color we offer. To ensure the best adhesion possible, make sure the product is clean and dry, and clean off any residual powder coat chipping. If you want to paint the entire product, we recommend using a primer and a paint designed for outdoor use.
We guarantee our products against defects in workmanship and materials. If you are experiencing an issue with one of our products, please contact our Customer Experience Department for more assistance. You will need proof of purchase and all details about the issue you are experiencing.

We use specialty keys not readily available in-store. Please contact our Customer Experience Department to order key blanks that can be cut from your original by any qualified locksmith.
Although Architectural Mailboxes is the manufacturer of your product, we are not the company from which you made your purchase. Because of this we do not have access to your method of payment and we cannot process your refund directly. We can however help assist you with locating the dealer from whom you purchased. Please contact our Customer Experience Department for assistance.
All of our mailboxes are made with materials designed to withstand outdoor exposure. We use galvanized steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and ocasionally UV-resistant plastic. These materials serve well when exposed to the elements. Additionally, all metal parts are pre-treated then powder coated with a material specially formulated for outdoor use. Powder coating is a painting process that creates a chemically cross-linked finish that is very durable and long-lasting, similar to the process used for cars. Despite the steps we take to design our products for outdoor use, improper installation and care can lessen the life span of our products. Please use the following guidelines to give your mailbox a long and happy life:
Although it is possible to attach Architectural Mailboxes' house numbers, we don't recommend it. The use of adhesives or penetrating your mailbox body may damage the product and will void your warranty.

Yes. For certain applications, it makes sense to have all locks use the same key profile. Examples include locking mailboxes used as paperwork drop points on a medical campus, or several key drop points at a car dealership. You can order a set of locks that are all keyed alike. See the FAQ, "How do I change the lock on my product?" for further instruction on this topic. Contact your Architectural Mailboxes dealer for more information.

Yes. We understand that parts get damaged in use from time to time. Our mailboxes are designed for maintainability and we have replacement parts for just about anything you can imagine. Please contact us directly if you need a replacement part.
We've been at this for a long time and we've seen every kind of installation under the sun. The majority of installations use a 4x4 wooden post, and we have a great solution for it: the 4x4 adapter plate. If you have a post made by one of our competitors, our mailbox will fit it if it uses the informal industry standard 4" x 10" bolt pattern. Here is an illustration of our bolt pattern, and every one of our post mount mailboxes uses this pattern. If your existing post uses a different pattern, we recommend attaching your own "DIY" wooden adapter to your existing post, then attaching your mailbox using the 4"x10" pattern. Do not drill new holes into your mailbox or it will promote corrosion and void your warranty.
Yes, they can be painted, but this will void your warranty. The powder coated surface of most of our products serves well as a painting substrate. To ensure the best adhesion possible, make sure the product is clean and dry, use a primer, and use a paint designed for outdoor use.
Yes, all of our mailboxes that are subject to USPS approval are formally and officially approved. We go through every step of the arduous process to properly design, test and certify our products according to the stringent USPS Standard 7 requirements. It is important to note that there are many mailbox manufacturers who simply stamp their mailboxes "US MAIL - Approved by the US Postmaster General," but whose mailboxes are not actually approved. While this is both illegal and unethical, the USPS enforcement system is insufficient to ensure this activity does not take place. When in doubt, contact your local USPS Postmaster and ask them to provide you with the latest list of approved receptacles.
Our customers, of course! Please Contact Us if you need anything at all.
