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.
