Creating Your Monument Sign

Monument signs make a strong impression on your future and current customers and represent your business on a large scale, so you want them to be both well-designed and clearly-branded. These large signs are freestanding and exist outside your business, often at the entrances of parks, churches, developments, subdivisions or hotels. Other businesses ranging from gated communities to restaurants to music venues use monument signs to herald their services and champion their brands.

Elements of a Successful Monument Sign

Monument signs that engage the public are most often mounted on stone, brick, or wood bases, or use side pillars to hold them up. Many times, as denoted by the word “monument,” sign builders use a large amount of stone, brick, or concrete in the base, which they then lay in a concrete foundation. This technique differs from a post-and-panel style of construction, and conveys a long-standing, established quality.  To save costs, sign companies often use High Density Urethane (HDU) that gives a faux cement, stone or brick look while being versatile and stable.


Your company’s brand is everything. It’s what people remember when they hear your name. It includes the associations potential customers make when they hear about your services.
