If you’re curious about whether a monument sign could help your Houston-area business, then this article will teach you what they are, and what they’re for.

What Are Monument Signs?

Monument signs are large, freestanding, outdoor signs. The base of the monument sign can be comprised of one or more of a variety of materials, including concrete, brick, stucco, aluminum, stone, steel, wood, and more. The sign panel can use these materials, too, such as carved lettering into a concrete or stone panel, raised letters on stucco or steel, sandblasted wood, or the panel can be made of something else, such as plastic or coroplast. You can see monument signs all over the Houston area, typically installed near roads and sidewalks.

What Are Monument Signs For?

Monument signs are used when a business or property is concerned that a sign on their building isn’t sufficient to identify and promote themselves. Typically, this is because there is a parking lot or yard between the main building and the nearest road or highway. Picture a grocery store in Katy with a large parking lot. People driving, or even cycling or walking, past this Katy grocery store might struggle to read, or not even notice, a sign installed on the grocery store itself. People looking for the store might not be able to find it and others won’t notice the store and thus won’t be interested in pulling into the lot and visiting the store.


With a monument sign, however, these problems are less likely. A monument sign installed right next to the road would be difficult to miss. On the sign would be the name of this Katy grocery store, along with maybe a logo, slogan, and/or address. A monument sign not only makes a business more identifiable, it can also make it look more welcoming and professional.

Monument Signs Require Professional Installation.

Monument signs are big and heavy. It is unreasonable to expect clients to install their own monument signs as this requires the right tools and knowhow. That’s why we at Houston Graphic Signs offer professional installation services to all our clients in the Houston area. Afterward, we will install your monument sign for you, so you don’t have to worry about it. This is also true if you’d like a pole sign, which is similar to, but taller than a monument sign.

    • 5 star review  Houston Graphic Signs is by far the best sign company in Houston, I am an assistant to a large local real estate brokerage in the area. We had an emergency regarding the HOA size requirements for a yard sign for one of our top agents about a year ago and Houston Graphic Signs were the only sign company able to expediate the sign and have it delivered asap! (believe me I probably called every sign company in Houston for help and Houston Graphic Signs were the only company that got it done) I have been working with Houston Graphic Signs for over a year now they produced high quality signs for our top producing agents (around 300) and worked with me regarding the art work and spreadsheets. Houston Graphics Signs always checks for errors on the art work to insure high quality. Michelle Mason who is one of the owners is always available! She always goes above and beyond even working late into the evening and weekends to assure our products arrive on time. You will not go wrong using Houston Graphic signs if you want high quality material priced at a competitive rate as well as top notch service. Thank you for everything Houston Graphic Signs Michelle Nagler

    • 5 star review  This company is fantastic. The design department was very receptive to our ideas for our logo. They were quick to offer suggestions for ways to make our company logo memorable. They offered multiple designs for us and were quick to present any changes that were made. They were very accommodating to our schedule for the installation on our truck. If you are looking for great service and a quality product, you need to look no further than Houston Graphic Sign Company. They will be doing all of our future graphic projects.
