Property Identity Signage - Leading the Way to Your Business

11-30-2016

Of all the business signs you own, property identity signage may be the most important. After all, if someone is not impressed with your entry way or monument sign, they may not make the effort to even check out your business. Let's examine what makes effective monument or entry way signs.

Monument Signs

Monument signs are freestanding signs built at ground level. They are not meant to attract attention from long distances. These signs are informational, and are meant to add an air of distinction for the reader.

Many monuments signs are made of stone or masonry. Some can be steel with masonry outer surfaces.Today, you can choose artificial stone materials that look just like realstone.

Monument signage should be designed with a definite purpose. In other words, don't try to accomplish too much with one sign. If the sign is meant to provide directions, then one should not provide additional information which does not have to do with directing the reader. This takes away from the sign's appeal.

Be aware of your local sign ordinances and remember, they can change from year to year. Also, know your property boundary lines before you begin construction and make sure to secure the proper building permits.

Entry Way Signs

An entry way sign can be a monument sign or several other types of property identity signage. Some are hung from frames and others are simple signs like "welcome center".

We are familiar with these outside influences, so we set out to develop each design to stand out in beauty and function, given each unique location. Whether you are purchasing a pylon sign, backlit channel letter sign, neon sign, or any custom sign, we use our creative graphic design talents to make it stand out. Contact us for questions about graphic design and signs.
