Pylon Signs

Pylon signs often create the first impression of your business. Towering above the rest, pylon signs are designed to be seen from long distances and at higher speeds of travel. A well-designed, well-placed pylon sign landmarks your business, promotes your brand, and complements its surroundings.

What is a pylon sign?

Pylon signs, also known as pole or freestanding signs, are tall signs secured with footings below ground level. Pylon signs typically start at 20–25 feet in the air. 

Usually found along interstates or high traffic areas, they grab drivers’ attention and help them locate your business.

Pylon signs can be single or double-sided and feature one or multiple businesses. They can also feature an LED electronic message display, allowing you to promote products or share important information.

Pylon signs are perfect for multi-tenant listings

Pylon signs make a great option when you have multiple tenants, as they allow you to showcase each individual tenant’s brand, colors, and font.

Types of pylon sign mounts

Depending on your business needs, zoning, and city ordinances, your custom pylon sign can be mounted in a few different ways.

Single pole: A cabinet sign with a single pole. Ideal for higher applications of 25–40 feet tall
Twin pole: A cabinet sign with two poles on either side. Twin poles present a more polished look.
