What To Consider For Your Church Sign

Your church sign is like your church’s handshake; it’s how you greet the world and introduce yourself. If you’re in the market for a new church sign, here’s what you should consider.

What Is A Church Sign?

A church might use many different signs for different purposes, but the church sign is the sign that is outside, in front of the church on the lawn or in the parking lot. The church sign acts as a form of building signage as it identifies the building behind it. But it also acts as a monument sign because it is usually significantly closer to the sidewalk and street than the church is.

What Type Of Sign Should You Use For Your Church Sign?

But what should your church sign look like? The most popular form of church sign is a type of post and panel sign. The sign panel of a post and panel sign is held up by one or more posts. The panel can be held statically from the crossbar or it can hang to create some movement. Post and panel signs are common yard signs; many realtors use post and panel signs in the Houston area.


But church signs are usually much bigger than real estate signs, so while maintaining the same basic structure, you need to scale it up for a church sign. Church signs typically use a long sign panel held up by two posts. Unless a church receives the majority of its parishioners on foot, as some churches in dense areas of downtown and midtown Houston do, a church sign is usually quite large so it can be seen by passing motorists. Church signs can be made of wood, foam core, metal, or high-density urethane (HDU).

Should You Use Replaceable Plastic Letter Tiles For Your Church Sign?

That’s entirely up to you. If you believe in the value of displaying bible verses or the themes of upcoming sermons, letter tiles are a tried and tested way of doing that. If you’re looking for another option, your church sign can contain an electronic, digital display board as well that lets you announce events and times.

  • 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!

I subcontracted them for a signage and wall graphic installation project I had in Houston and they have done a fabulous job. Very prompt responses and communication, great client service, and flexible to on-site changes. Would highly recommend!

  • 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.

  • 5 star review  They made a custom yard sign for me very quickly. It was affordable, well made, and exactly what I was looking for. I have had several neighbors comment on it andI happily yell them where I got it. I would use Houston Graphic signs again without hesitation for any signage needs.
