Panel Signs are some of the most popular and effective outdoor signs in the Greater Houston Area of Texas. But just what are they? Should your Houston business or organization use Panel Signs?

Panel Signs Are Outdoor Signs That Can Be Used For A Variety Of Purposes.

The name “panel sign” describes what the sign is. The panel, which is typically rectangular, is the sign panel itself. On the panel is where you will find the text or graphics that the post and panel sign displays. The sign panel is held in place by one or more posts. The structure could be a simple vertical post and one horizontal crossbar holding the sign in place or two posts and a crossbar if the sign is large enough to require a second post, or if you prefer a two-posted sign for aesthetic reasons.


You can also choose to suspend the panel from the crossbar via a chain, cord, or rope. This is great if you’re going for a trendy or even look aesthetic, but it also has the advantage of swaying in the wind, and even minimal movement can catch the human eye. Be careful not to install a hanging panel sign in a windy area. A sign expert at a local Houston signage company can advise you on which variation of the post and panel sign is best suited for your purposes, location, and budget.

Uses For Panel Signs

Panel Signs can be used to serve as a number of different signage types including:

When Should You Use A Panel Sign?

Could you use a post and panel sign? Depends on what you do. Are you organizing a large outdoor event in Houston? Some Panel Signs can be made quite inexpensively, so it might be worth it to use a post and panel as temporary signage for a festival, party, or other social function. Panel Signs can also serve the same function as a monument and pole signs. While generally not as large as a monument sign or as tall as a pole sign, a post and panel sign can still effectively get people’s attention even when they are far away from your building.

    • 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.
