Is that a Sculpture? No, it’s a Monument Sign!
Monument signs are built to make it easy to locate your business for customers and build your
brand. A monument sign is designed to promote your business and be a piece of artwork to
stand out from your competition. It’s an effective form of advertising and wayfinding.
At San Francisco Signs, we believe monument signs are art sculptures. Every angle will be
appealing and remembered by every viewer in all industries. We can help you design and plan
a monument sign for your business. Designs, as simple or complex as they can be, are based on
configurations, creative elements, and colors. The best designs will make your sign such a
monumental sculpture that will strengthen your brand and the legacy of your business.
Monument signs are placed and built on the ground. They are not part of the building. They
can be illuminated or not and are made from durable, lasting material.
There are 3 types monuments: illuminated mall, masonry land mark, and wood post/panel
Illuminated Mall monuments are basically mall entrance signs. These are normally metal and
have different panels to promote the businesses located in that mall. They are illuminated with
LED lights for brightness and low energy costs. Older monuments with fluorescent lamps
should be converted to LED. Masonry Land Mark monuments are signs for, most but not all, apartment buildings, neighborhood/communities, and industrial parks. These are usually made from concrete, stone, stucco or brick.
Wood Post/Panel monuments are signs used by businesses and housing complexes. These are
usually made from wood. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s make plans as production and permits may take weeks after a design is approved.
