Pylon signs are extremely tall, very big signs made to be seen from a great distance. Shopping centers and strip malls also use pylon signs to advertise the various businesses featured at these locations.
Pole signs are similar to pylon signs except they feature just one sign on a single pole. Stand alone businesses will often use this type of sign.
Directional signs provide the location of business addresses within a structural complex. Hospitals, college campuses, government buildings will often use this type of sign. These are easily visible to pedestrians and from a passing vehicle.
Wall signs identify your business and are mounted on the wall usually above the business entryway. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes and designs. These signs can incorporate a variety of materials and lighting options.
Monument signs are low lying signage normally fronting the entrance to parking areas/lots or the entrance to a building complex. These signs typically list the name of one company or they may list all the tenants in the complex. Common materials used in the manufacturing of this type of sign are concrete, granite, marble, brick and wood.
Blade signs also known as projecting signs are mounted perpendicular to the wall of the business. They allow pedestrians and customers to view and locate the entrance to a business as they walk on the sidewalk.
Awnings are classic. Reminiscent of a simpler time; popular with family style restaurants, neighborhood delis, mom and pop style grocery stores and the little flower shop on the corner. Typically made of canvas over a frame, awnings not only promote the business but also offer protection from the elements.
