Pole signs are effective, large-scale, outdoor signs. Many businesses in the Houston area of Texas have seen an uptick in business after installing a pole sign on their property.

A Pole Sign Can Help Boost The Visibility Of Just About Any Business In The Houston, TX, Area. But Some Businesses Stand To Benefit More Than Others.

One job of all large outdoor signs is to increase the visibility of a business. Some signs do this with a monument sign, but monument signs are rarely very tall. Roof signs are quite high up, but not every roof is adequate to have a sign installed on it. Nor does every business/building owner care to have a large sign installed on their roof.

Pole Signs Feature A Large Sign Panel Installed On Top Of A Long Pole.

By reaching high into the sky, a pole sign increases a business’s visibility in all directions (the sign panel of a pole sign should always be double-sided). Pole signs can reach 60 feet into the air, so they can be seen by motorists and pedestrians from quite a distance away. Pole signs are also great because they elevate your business, literally; pole signs can be seen above other obstructions in the immediate environment.


For example, a quick-service restaurant off of Interstate I-10 in Katy, just outside of Houston, might find that commuters coming in and out of the city are not stopping in for a bite to eat but are merely driving right past them, because they don’t notice the restaurant. By installing a pole sign, this Katy restaurant can expect to increase business. People will notice their business, often from quite far away, and will consider pulling off the highway to pick up some food.

Pole Signs Are Largely Effective Due To Their Height And Size. But These Are Not The Only Important Factors.

The imagined Katy restaurant above can have the highest pole with the largest sign panel on it, but these alone are no guarantee of increased business. The sheer size of such a pole sign would generate many impressions, but you want to ensure that your pole sign generates a positive impression. Attractive, on-brand design is key. If you manage such a business in Katy, or elsewhere in the Houston area, you need to consult a sign expert at a local sign company. Both to ensure you have the best design possible and to check that you can get permission from the local Katy, Houston, or other municipal government to install such a large pole sign.

  • 5 star review  Houston Graphic Signs is a fantastic business with amazing customer service and a fast turnaround! Michelle was extremely helpful and communicated with me every step of the way. I ordered a yard sign to announce my son's graduation from college and it is much nicer and bigger than I expected! It was also packed with great care which tells me how much they value their customers. I will definitely give Houston Graphic Signs more business in the future!

  • 5 star review  We had an outstanding experience with our signs! HGS made decals for the sides of our trucks. Brent helped us with creating the right electronic file from one of our old files. Michelle has been proactive in her communications. Quality is far better than we have received from other sign companies. HGS will be our permanent sign company going forward!

  • 5 star review  Wonderful experience! Price was competitive, customer service and quality of work was better than expected. I had to replace a store front sign just and these folks went out of there way to make sure they understood what I wanted and exceeded expectations at every point of the process.

  • 5 star review  Michelle and her team work very quickly. When I placed my order with Houston Graphic Signs, I was on a tight deadline. Not only were they Friendly and Helpful but they were also Fast and Professional. The vinyl stickers I ordered look AMAZING and are made with quality materials to hold up to wear and tear! Thank you HGS for a job VERY well done!

  • 5 star review  Used Houston Graphic Signs to wrap one of the trucks in our fleet. We've had a vendor we've used for years that we were satisfied with, but HGS is in our office complex, and we figured we'd give them a shot. The whole process from their quote, to completing the work, to invoicing was seamless and easy. The wrap went on great with no issues, and the price was a significant reduction from what I was used to paying. Great process all around, and I plan on using these guys for all of my graphics needs.
