Monument Signs and Their Value in Business Marketing

Monument Signs

Monument signs, like the one we did for Johns Hopkins, are great ways to promote your business or organization.

We all know that effective marketing is invaluable to a business, but one of the best marketing tools is signage outside of your location. Since there are so many types of signs, it can be difficult to choose which one is right for your business. If you’re looking for a versatile and sophisticated look to your signage, you may want to consider a monument sign to draw customers to your business.


Monument signs are comprised of 2 main features: masonry and signage, both of which can be customized to your needs. The masonry of your monument sign can be stone, brick, or stucco and can be designed to match the architecture and style of your existing building. However, it’s truly up to you, whether you want to match or compliment your building or not; a sign can fit your vision.


The upfront costs of a monument sign may be high for materials and labor, but the quality of the sign will definitely outweigh the cost. Masonry lasts much longer than other signage materials and can stand up to wear-and-tear over time a lot better. If a true masonry monument sign is out of the question, you can opt for more affordable foam panels that can be shaped and painted to look like stone or brick. The visual difference between a true brick or stone monument sign and a foam sign is typically unnoticeable

Optional Illumination

The signage component of your monument sign can be customized as well, and you can choose to light up your sign in a variety of ways. If the message on your sign is not apt to change, you can have it lit up with ground lights, or you can use a sign cabinet. A sign cabinet is typically made from aluminum and plexiglass and uses fluorescent lighting from behind to illuminate your sign or logo. You can also include a digital message center on your monument sign if you need to change it a lot, like for sales, promotions, etc.

If you don’t want a light-up sign, for aesthetic or zoning reasons, there are multitudes of other ways to draw more attention to your sign like carved wooden signs, dimensional letters, or vinyl graphics on aluminum or flatwood sign panels.
