Pole and Pylon Signs

Pylon signs are often called pole or freestanding signs. Basically they are signs erected on a pole or pylon independent of any building or structure. Since they are typically mounted higher in the air than monument signs, pole signs offer excellent visibility from a distance.

A pylon or pole sign will set your business and your identity above all others by cutting through the confusion of obstacles and marking your place in the air, and on the ground.


Pylon signs are often called pole or freestanding signs. The main difference being that pylons have shrouded poles that add an architecture elegance to the structure.  Pole and pylon signs can be of simple construction or works of art. They can range from a standard illuminated cabinet or box sign, to including other elements such as neon lettering or accents; an Electribic Message Board; or neon lighted graphic elements. It all depends on how far you want to go.


One of the many advantages of pylon signs is to separate your business from the rest along your street, reflecting your company's identity and professionalism. The pole(s) can be covered with an attractive shroud to provide that added dimension (and impact!) to your sign.

Pylon signs are typically illuminated, either internally (most common) or externally. Really looking for maximum impact and message capabilities? Add an electronic message center for an unparalleled eye-catching display!

Like most other types of commercial on-premise signage, be sure and check with your local city or township ordinance for height and size restrictions - or just ask us and we'll find out for you!
