The Custom Monument Advantage

Why opt for a custom monument when there are standard monument options available? The answer is simple: uniqueness. Our custom monuments are tailored to your business's individual style and requirements. With a plethora of materials, including EPS foam, wood, and stucco, at your disposal, your monument becomes an artistic canvas for conveying your brand's identity.

There are many different design options to choose from; you can order our cabinet signage in a variety of shapes and sizes – from ovals to circles, radius corners, or domed tops with rounded ends. You can have custom pillar signs mounted on side posts or a solid base with pillars.

Sign Crafters offers a variety of options for cabinet sign faces, including:
  • Pan formed smooth
  • Pan formed embossed or debossed
  • Routed aluminum with colored acrylic (push-thru copy available)
  • Flex faces (decoration applications with 3M translucent vinyl, digital printing, and grip flex spray painting)
  • Flat Lexan or acrylic
  • Flat aluminum

The Power Of Monument Graphics

Monument graphics play a pivotal role in capturing attention and conveying important information. These graphics are strategically designed and placed to enhance visibility and make a strong impression. Whether it's a company logo, directional signage, or a community landmark, monument graphics on a sign serve as a visual representation of identity and purpose. They can incorporate bold typography, vibrant colors, and eye-catching imagery to attract viewers and communicate messages effectively.

These not only provide essential information but also contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of the environment. With their combination of artistry and functionality, these graphics ensure that the display becomes a memorable focal point, guiding and engaging individuals while leaving a lasting impact

In the world of signage, visuals speak louder than words. Monument graphics are a pivotal element of your custom sign. Whether you choose stucco monument graphics for a touch of elegance or opt for a more traditional look, your graphics will captivate passersby and leave a lasting impression.

Materials We Use

Our sign cabinets are fabricated from either steel and aluminum frames or our aluminum extrusion selection of 4", 6", 8", 9", 10", 11 1/2", or 12" depths. All cabinets are UL® licensed and built to order, so we can accommodate any lamp diagram or mounting method that may be required for your specifications. Our sign structures are primed and painted with sign-grade Grip Guard paints that carry a 9-year warranty. Our Akzo Nobel Grip Flex spray station can match the Pantone color chart and other paint formulas to match your artwork. Illuminated cabinet signs shine brightly with interiors painted with Akzo Nobel white light-enhancing primer.
We can also create monument signs with metal letters or dimensional plastic letters that are installed directly onto your base of stone, brick, stucco, or another surface.  Our team will work with you to ensure that your design is compliant with area ordinances for signage.

Frequently Asked Questions

We get a lot of questions about our monument signs. Here are just a few:

What is a monument sign?

A monument, pillar, and ground sign is a low-profile, freestanding outdoor sign typically located at ground level near the entrance of a business, organization, or property. These signs are designed to be highly visible and serve as a prominent identifier for the location. These signs are often constructed using a variety of durable materials such as stucco, EPS foam, wood, or stone-like finishes and can incorporate graphics, branding elements, and text to convey information about the business or property. They are a popular choice for enhancing the exterior aesthetics and visibility of a business, providing a professional and inviting entrance, and creating a lasting impression on visitors and potential customers. Pillar signs can be customized to match the branding and style of the business, making them a versatile and effective form of outdoor signage.

What materials can be used to make pillar signs?

Monument and pylon signs can be crafted from a variety of materials to achieve different aesthetics and durability levels. Some common materials used for constructing a monument include:

  • Stucco: Stucco is a popular choice due to its versatility. It can be molded and textured to create various surface finishes, making it suitable for a wide range of design styles.

  • EPS Foam (Expanded Polystyrene Foam): EPS foam is lightweight and can be sculpted to resemble various textures, such as stone or brick. It's a cost-effective option that provides a realistic look without the weight of traditional materials.

  • Wood: Wooden monument signs offer a classic and rustic appearance. They can be stained or painted to match the desired aesthetic.

  • Stone or Faux Stone: Natural stone or faux stone veneers are used to create an elegant and timeless look. These materials are durable and provide a high-end appearance.

  • Metal: Metal components, such as aluminum or steel, can be incorporated into the design for added durability and a modern, sleek appearance.

  • Concrete: Concrete monument signs are extremely durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions. They are often used for long-lasting signage solutions.

The choice of material depends on factors such as budget, design preferences, local regulations, and the desired look and feel of the monument. Many businesses opt for a combination of materials to achieve a unique and eye-catching design that aligns with their branding and the overall aesthetic of their property.
