Custom Stone Monument SignMonument signs are a great way to provide more visibility to your business and stand out making your logo recognizable, creating greater brand awareness while attract new customers to your company. These signs provide a sense of permanence. A custom crafted Monument sign is the best way to be not only more noticeable but even become a landmark used for directions as well as helping to find your organization on busy streets lined with business. A unique Monument sign is an investment that has the ability to pay for itself. Many municipalities have created “Monuments only” signs ordinances to insure the beauty of their towns.

Monuments are different from other signs because the sign sits at eye level which eliminates the need for posts or pylons that require additional maintenance and may rust over time. Monument signs were traditionally constructed of masonry but today they are also made from highly engineered products like high density urethane and expanded polystyrene. A very high end image can be projected by using granite or bronze letters and logos attached to the monument face. These options can be tailored to your budget and are very popular with churches, schools, business parks, residential neighborhoods, apartments, condominiums and professional/office buildings.

When cost is a great factor, a less expensive alternative would be a Post and Panel sign which as the name implies are two posts holding the sign in between. The posts can be as simple as possible by using pressure treated wood or as decorative as vinyl fencing posts with elaborate caps topping the posts. The sign can be made of aluminum, sign board or plastic. These materials will last a long time but not nearly as long as a well-built Monument sign. Also, a Post and Panel sign does not provide the same sense of permanence as provided by a Monument sign. Most monument signs are affordable and create a memorable advertisement to drive customers to your business.

Another alternative is a Pylon sign. This type of sign is usually 8 or more feet above the ground and is normally a lighted sign. The advantage to this type of sign is the added visibility from a distance. However, they normally require a truck with a lift to provide normal maintenance.

Freestanding Business SignAlternatives that replaced neon signs are called electronic signage. There are several different types including LED Signs, such as electronic fuel price changers, electronic message centers, digital menu boards, and digital display systems. This type of sign requires training so that our customers can provide quality digital content needed to catch the attention desired of prospective customers that are driving or walking in the business district.

These types of letters and many others are easy to customize in a letter style or logo for perfect 3 dimensional signs.

Monuments provide the marriage of quality and creativity to suit your sign budget. For example, foam products have a smaller cost than traditional materials with similar, long lasting results.
You can add beauty to your signs with a variety of decorative elements. These decorations enhance signs for individual businesses, business parks, apartments, condos, subdivisions, retail stores and malls, churches, government offices, real estate offices, service industries, construction companies, commercial properties, schools and charities.

Every company has a sign, so to make your sign stand out you need to make it unique. Your Monument
sign should be more than just your logo and address; it should show visually that your company is different. The production team at Great Bay Signs can show you how this is accomplished right down to the location of the sign which needs to be in a hand selected area that best shows it off. The color pallet for the sign is important to able catch the person’s eye as they are driving by. Will the sun hit it in the morning or evening? If so our team will work to use that to your best advantage. Will the Monument be under a street light or need to have lights shining on the sign for it’s best viewing advantage or will the sign need to be lighted from within? Our team will guide you to make your sign both memorable and beautiful…quality you can see!
