Benefits and Purpose of Monument Signs

Monument signs create an impact like no other. If you want your business to be taken seriously, these signs give your business an aura of sophistication. These signs convey your brand’s image and showcase your business’s headquarters. These signs are generally more permanent and expensive than other signs, requiring more planning during the design process.

Design Materials

A crucial part of the design process for creating a monument sign is deciding on the type of material to use. You may want to match the monument’s look with the other signs you already have in place. Otherwise, you have the creative freedom to start from scratch.

Types of Materials

  • Stone or Brick: These materials create a classier look for a monument sign and are the most expensive. They are also on the heavier side, which increases their durability.
  • Concrete: A more economical option than the one above, concrete is guaranteed to be the most durable material of them all for a monument sign. 
  • Wood: Wood signs are great for businesses hoping to achieve a more rustic look, such as parks.
  • Aluminum or Metal: These materials are best suited for more modern, industrial businesses and are long-lasting.
  • Plastics: Plastics are the preferable option for more complex designs since they are easily customizable in terms of graphics and colors. You’ll want to make sure you design a plastic monument that matches your business’s image.
