Towering above a business, high-quality pylon signs draw eye-catching attention at long-range distances. Is your place of business located in one of the busiest districts of Huntsville, Athens, or Madison and you want distinctive signage that showcases your business and brand in a larger-than-life manner? If the answer is yes, this sign is your visual solution.
Unlike monument or post and panel signs, this signage extends above eye-level, typically in excess of 8 feet. Therefore, employing pylon-type signs as a visual means of communication requires a unique set of criteria. One of the primary factors when considering your sign is the location of your business. If your office, shopping center or place of operations is located along a busy street surrounded by other businesses, a high-flying sign that towers over obstructions will easily get you noticed. Similarly, if your business is situated along a remote highway, a pylon wayfinding sign draws attention of travelers and directs them to your location.
Branded custom pylon signs that carry your company’s distinct personality have a greater chance at becoming a major landmark in your neighborhood and are therefore perfect options for long-term investments. In no time, both locals and visitors will associate your brand with your location, making you top of mind whenever they think about your area or products you offer.
A pylon is a free-standing structure that is either single-sided or double-sided. Because of their height, pylons are supported by a single pole or two columns made of steel and require a concrete foundation. For durability, functionality and visual appearance, a commercial pylon sign is made of either a steel or aluminum frame with a rigid or flexible face. As with other types of signage, pylons are very customizable with limitless color and graphic options, allowing you to deliver your marketing message with long-range visibility.
For maximum exposure, illuminated pylon signs are integrated with LED lighting for 24/7 visibility. Additionally, this signage offers greater branding capabilities when equipped with an electronic messaging centers (EMC). An EMC is capable of displaying text, symbols, figures or images that can be electronically changed remotely, essentially writing messages in the sky! Commercial shopping centers, large multi-unit office buildings, churches and hospitals are ideal candidates for pylon signs.

Pylon signs are tall and slender structures used to display advertisement messages. These signs are typically illuminated so that they can be seen day or night. Pylon signs can measure up to 30 feet in height and be as big as 120 square feet in area.
The size of a pylon sign depends upon several factors, including the size of the area it needs to cover and the number of people who will see it.
Pylon signs are printed on high-quality, weatherproof vinyl. This material is suitable for outdoor use and will not be damaged by exposure to rain or sunlight. Pylon sign structures are weatherproof when they are secured to a foundation in the ground. The signs can be installed with or without the plastic lightbox. If installed with the light boxes, standard fluorescent light bulbs can be used.
The minimum size should be 4 feet by 4 feet.
The maximum width should be 7 feet. The maximum height should be 8 feet. The sign may have a diagonal dimension not to exceed 1⁄2 the height of the sign measured from the bottom left corner to the top right corner, so long as it does not extend beyond 4 feet above ground level.
The sign is usually attached to a metal suspension bracket that attaches to the top of the pylon. The pylon is typically hollow and made of fiberglass, aluminum, or steel. If you know what you’re doing (and most don’t), it’s possible to climb up into the pylon and attach the sign yourself. That’s why it’s great to hire an expert.
It depends on location, installation type, and quantity. The average cost of a pylon sign is between $1,000 and $2,500. But it depends on many factors like size and weight. In general, the larger a sign is, the more it will cost to create. Contact us for a quote to get the most accurate price.
