Ocean Beach Newport Avenue Tile Project

Own a piece of history on Newport Ave!

Purchase a 6-inch square ceramic tile personalized with your own special message.


After filling out the form below you will be redirected to the product page to pay for your order. You must pay for your order before your tile will be created.

Message guidelines:

  • 3 lines can be utilized with 14 characters per line (each letter, punctuation mark, space, or symbol takes up one character space), capital letters only.
  • Messages will be centered unless indicated otherwise on the order form.
  • Messages will be screened for suitability in a community setting. Ocean Beach MainStreet Association and the City of San Diego have final approval over messages. Unacceptable messages will be returned with payment to the buyer. Creativity is welcome; obscenity is not!

Location/installation information:

  • Please select your first and second choice of block and indicate if you have specific preferences. We will do our best to accommodate your request.
  • Please note: Each phase of the Ocean Beach Tile Project takes time to complete. We must meet a quota of orders before we can initiate the engraving and installation process. It can take several months between your order and your tile installation.


  • Each tile is $175. Symbols cost an extra $5 per symbol.
  • Tiles are guaranteed for the life of the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association.

Please note:

  • You will see a variety of tiles and typefaces on the street (the project began in 1990). Our current tiles are sand-colored and the text is engraved in all capital letters. Letters are filled in with dark grout at installation.


We are currently accepting orders.  Installation is ongoing once we receive a minimum amount of tiles purchased.  Please call our office if you have any questions.
