Tips: To get an idea how the numbers you are thinking about using can be seen from the street or by passing vehicles, try using your computer's printer to print them on cardstock or paper. Cut them out and use some tape to position them where you are considering. You may find that you need to move them so they are not hidden by a tree, another part of your house or you may find that you want them to be bigger.
Numbers should be at least three or four inches tall. If they are not lit then make sure they are covered with a reflective material so they will be lit up by passing headlights. You sure do want the police or fire dept to be able to see them easily if ever needed.
Avoid hard to read or script fonts. Script house numbers drive people crazy when they are looking for an address. And remember that if you put house numbers on your front door that a storm or screen door might cover them later.
