Guide to Monument Signs

From understanding what Monument Signs are, to considerations for compliance, cost averages, real-life examples, and answers to common questions, we've got you covered.

What are Monument Signs?

Monument Signs are freestanding signs that are usually positioned at the entrance of a property or business. They are often used to display a company's name, logo, and sometimes the address. Designed to be sturdy and eye-catching, these signs are called 'monuments' due to their substantial and permanent nature.

Constructed from materials such as stone, brick, metal, or high-density foam, Monument Signs give a sense of permanence and stability. They are a highly effective way to make a strong first impression, and they convey a sense of quality and permanence about your business.

Considerations for Monument Sign

When planning for your Monument Sign, it's essential to consider:

Design: A well-designed Monument Sign reflects your brand identity. It should be cohesive with your company's color scheme, typography, and overall aesthetic.

Size: The size of your Monument Sign should be proportionate to its surroundings and easily visible to passing traffic.

Location: Choose a location that maximizes visibility. Often, this is near the entrance of your property.

Materials: Durability is key as the sign needs to withstand various weather conditions.

Local Regulations: Some areas have restrictions on sign size, location, and lighting. Ensure you comply with local regulations.

Average Costs of Monument Sign

The cost of Monument Signs can vary greatly, depending on the size, design, materials, and whether or not they're illuminated. A small, non-illuminated sign may start in the low thousands, while large, custom, illuminated signs can exceed tens of thousands. For an accurate estimate, we recommend contacting us with your specific requirements.
