What Is a Pole Sign?
If you have ever driven down a road looking for a fast food joint or a gas station, the first thing that will alert you to their presence is a sign sitting tall on top of a pole. These signs stick out and can be seen from vast distances depending upon the terrain. These are what are referred to as pole signs, for obvious reasons. They are so tall as to stand out from the scenery and often will alert customer to the presence of a business well before they can see the building itself. For this reason they are usually positioned on the side of the road, away from the main building, allowing people to locate a business that is situated far back from the street. At night, illuminated pole signs can be easily be made out from thousands of feet away.
