Pole/pylon signs in Vancouver WA, Portland OR, and elsewhere attract a lot of viewers. They are a mainstay on the American (and worldwide) traveler and commuter landscape.
Pole and pylon signs are different names for the same type of signage and branding solutions. Generally speaking, pole/pylon signs are freestanding and installed at great heights — tall enough to be seen from many hundreds of feet away, in fact. That’s why engineers are usually required to determine their specifications.
However, pole signs differ from pylon signs in that the pole that holds them aloft is usually plain and unadorned. Pylon signs, on the other hand, often incorporate designs into the supporting poles or pylons themselves.
Unlike other types of signage, a pole/pylon sign’s effectiveness stems from its ability to communicate a brand or store location quickly and efficiently despite being situated much higher than eye level.
This requires a dash of forethought and a dose of creativity — both of which are in good supply at NW Sign Solutions. The forethought comes in the form of a question: Is a pole/pylon sign in Vancouver WA right for you and your business?
The Right Solution: Pole/Pylon Signage
Think of a pole/pylon sign as a taller version of a monument sign.
Among other similarities, both are typically made of sturdy and durable materials designed to last for years, if not decades. Both can be crafted with a lightbox design or LEDs to illuminate the signage, as well as other design and lighting elements. And both can feature a single business or a number of different businesses (in front of a shopping plaza, for example).
The difference, as we’ve mentioned, is in the relative heights of the two types of signage. Pole/pylon signs can be quite tall; that’s why you see them so often along major thoroughfares and highways.
Keep in mind — this is where that forethought comes back into play — that we’ll need to discuss and anticipate potential challenges to the installation of a pole/pylon sign in Vancouver, Portland, and the rest of the metro area.
Like many parts of the country, the Vancouver/Portland region is made up of multiple counties, cities, towns, and neighborhoods. Where will your sign be located? Are there height restrictions when it comes to signage?
Remember, these signs can be installed atop towering structures meant to be seen from a great distance. How high can you build your pole/pylon sign? What are the zoning restrictions and rules and regulations that oversee signage in your area?
Don’t worry. As we discuss your project, we’ll be sure to take all of this into account. And we’ll certainly craft something that reflects your presence, your brand, and its prominence within the local business community.
