Monument Signs: What They Are, What They're Used for, and Why You Might Need One

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.
