Monument Sign: A sign that sits directly on the ground
If you want your business or organization noticed make the monumental decision to go with a monument sign.
A monument sign shows that a business/organization is well established and secure enough to have such a sign. Most people who look at these signs think they are solid concrete, rock and brick signs with expensive price tags and it takes a business/organization with a secure future to invest in one, little do they know that these signs are often more affordable than they look. A larger percentage of the monument signs your see are faux monument signs. They are not rock, brick, and concrete.
The Pioneer sign pictured above is all faux, even the bricks. You need to drive up and touch them to know they are not real!
A faux monument style sign can save you thousands of dollars alone on just the footer/foundation and install compared to a concrete, rock and brick sign. Since they are not concrete and rock they are not heavy they do not require a poured concrete footer. They only require post and post holes for installing. We typically can install a monument sign in only a few hours.
Can you believe that the Pioneer sign above was only around 150 lbs? Each section on the Belton Stroup sign was around 100 lbs. When you drive up to them you would swear they would weigh several tons. The Belton Stroup sign is installed with only three posts in all the columns. Can you imagine how much a solid footer would have cost alone if this sign was a real concrete sign, probably as much as the finished project cost doing the sign as a faux monument sign.
The specialist that make our faux monuments can match brick and rock patterns if any exist on the architecture of a building where a sign is going. This adds to the illusion of the sign being real brick and rock since they match what is currently on site. The Concord sign , around 150 lbs, faux bricks closely matching bricks on school building. The Valley Regional is a hybrid sign combining a faux monument and an electrical cabinet sign. The bricks were matched to their building.
The faux monument signs can be equipped with reader boards and LED displays.
