Monuments | Pylons
Monument and pylon signs are exterior, freestanding signs that help identify and designate the location of businesses, institutions, hospitals, schools, neighborhoods, and community centers. They assure your customers that they’re in the right place.
Monument signs can come in all kinds of custom shapes, sizes, and styles, and can be constructed out of aluminum, stone, steel, TexturePlus, HDU, stucco, brick, concrete, and acrylic. Most monument signs contain elements of masonry to incorporate the building’s architecture. Masonry can get expensive, so we recommend using TexturePlus or Faux Masonry (EIFS or Stucco) to save on costs.
Pylon signs typically contain a single cabinet that sits atop a pole or is positioned between two poles. The main difference between monument signs and pylons is their extreme height — most pylons are taller than their associated building. Because of their height, pylon signs can attract more pedestrian and street traffic, especially within busy areas.
