Pylon signs were given their name because they are freestanding structures that jut up from the ground. Whereas many outdoor signs are affixed to a building – think logos and business names written on storefronts or decorative awnings – pylon signs are usually positioned at the front of the lot. Though it’s rare for pylon signs to be the only outdoor signage identifying a business, they tend to make terrific complementary assets.

What is a pylon sign? - A pylon sign is a ground sign that displays the name and/or logos of one or more businesses. They can be used by a single business to increase the overall visibility of a company’s outdoor signs – e.g. a pylon sign can be placed near a road so motorists become aware of the building before they’re right next to it – or be used in front of multipurpose buildings – e.g. strip malls – to function as a directory.
Types of pylon signs - Pylon signs come in various shapes and sizes, and can be designed to accommodate a sprawling variety of tastes. They can be small and understated, used to complement a storefront, or large and bold, used to attract the eye from a distance.
Directory pylon signs - This type of pylon sign is most often used for commercial properties that host multiple businesses. For example, if you pass a strip mall, you’ll likely see a ground sign positioned near the road that lists each of the establishments comprising the mall. Having a pylon sign to serve this function saves drivers from having to read every storefront individually, a task that can be tricky from behind the wheel.
Single business pylon signs - Though pylon signs are a great way to compile and display a group of business names located on a single property, they can also be used by individual businesses. In such cases, a pylon sign may include the name and/or logo of the business. Just as with directory signs, these pylon signs will be positioned near a road so that motorists see it before they’re right in front of the building, at which point it may be too late to turn. In addition to the company name and logo, pylon signs may also include pertinent information.
Illuminated pylon signs - Whether informing passers by about each of the businesses on a property, or lending roadside presence to a single establishment, pylon signs can be illuminated to stay visible after dark. Illuminated pylon signs work in the same was as illuminated channel letters and sign boxes, which are usually affixed to the building itself.Order now
