What are Pylon Signs?
Pylon signs are large, freestanding structures not attached to any building that advertise one or more businesses. They can either be lit from inside or with exterior lights, and their foundations or support posts are clearly visible. Pylon signs come in all sizes, shapes, and styles, but the goal of a pylon sign is to be easily visible from a distance. For example, shopping centers or malls use large pylon signs with the names and logos of each business in the center so that people driving by will be able to clearly see it. Pylon signs can also be commonly found advertising restaurants, gas stations, hotels, or amusement parks.
What are Monument Signs?
Monument signs are closely related to pylon signs, in that both are freestanding, typically lighted structures. Whereas pylon signs can extend higher than the building they advertise, monument signs are about the height of a person and meant to be seen at eye level. They are often used at the entrance of a business to be seen by people nearby, as opposed to pylon signs which can be seen from far off. Monument signs are a great option if you are limited in space or budget, but still want an attractive and eye catching sign.
What are Marquee Signs?
Pylon signs can also take the form of marquee signs, which are lighted white boxes with easily replaceable letters. These are commonly seen at movie theaters, where titles and showing times can be changed daily by the staff, or public buildings such as schools, where upcoming events can be displayed. Depending on your needs, marquee signs can either be surrounded by a simple black outline, or decorated with colorful or blinking lights.
