Monument Signage Ontario

What type of outdoor signage is right for you?

Everything from storefront signage to towering billboard signs have the ability to influence customers in a positive manner. And depending on your targeting and placement requirements, it’s important to fully understand which sign styles, materials, and graphic options are best suited to your needs.

To help give you a better idea of different signs available and how they can be used to advertise your message or brand, we list below some of the most popular types of outdoor signs most often sought after by businesses in various industries. If you don’t see what you’re looking for or would like something more customized and unique, we would be happy to help you create a more personalized solution.


Freestanding Signs

Freestanding signs are simply outdoor signs that are not connected to any buildings or other similar structures. Instead, they are permanently fixed to the ground by a solid base, braces, or poles and pylons. You’ve probably seen these types of signs outside of corporate buildings, in dealership lots, at gas stations, and on the side of highways.

Managing freestanding signs can sometimes require permission from the city or county you are located in. Our team at Grand River Sign Design can not only help navigate city bylaws and health and safety concerns, we can provide complete signage engineering drawings and permitting services to make this process as easy as possible for you.

So what types of freestanding signs are available? There are three main types of freestanding signs including; pylon signs, monolith signs, and monument signs.


Pylon Signs

Pylon signs, sometimes referred to as pole signs, provide far-reaching visibility due to their substantial size and height capabilities. They are great for businesses located in crowded plazas, high-traffic areas or nearby highways who are looking to stand out as they can tower over competitors and beat nearby obstructions. They are often illuminated so they can be seen day and night and can range in height anywhere from 9 feet to over 100 feet tall.

Who are pylon signs best suited for? They work great for various business types and are most often seen outside of auto shops, restaurants, car dealerships, plazas, hospitals, and literally every gas station in every city across the country.


Monolith Signs

Monolith signs, also known as totem signs, are often used as prominent brand markers and directional signage. They can emphasize an entranceway or identify a building from the roadside.

Monolith signs are freestanding and are typically constructed from hard wearing materials like steel and durable aluminum that can endure exposure to the harshest weather conditions. They can be displayed on one side or act as a double-sided advertisement for maximum visual impact. If you think a monolith sign is what you’re looking for, reach out to team to further discuss your needs.


Monument Signs

Monument signs are freestanding low-profile signs that are usually no more than 5 feet tall and are installed to display messages at eye level. They are permanently fixed in place and are designed to blend in nicely with your surrounding property.

These signs are typically used to display a buildings name and address, as wayfinding to identify building tenants, or to mark a buildings entrance. Monument signs often include front-signage lighting to ensure they stand out with clear viewing even in the darkest settings.


Billboard Signs

Although billboard signs are considered to be a part of the freestanding sign family, they are a little more versatile in that they can also be mounted to buildings or attached to other similar structures.

Billboard signs are great for companies looking to build their brands or push new products to a broad range of customers. Due to their size and visual capabilities, they can bring ideas to life with large-scale high-quality graphics that reach customers miles away. If you’re looking for high visibility, billboard signs will do the trick.

Whether you need to advertise your billboard on the side of a building, on top of a tall structure, or near a highway, we have the experience to ensure your project is successful from start to finish.


Channel Letters & Graphics

Commonly used as exterior signage for businesses and retail centers, channel letters break the mold when it comes to unique shapes, sizes, and lighting effect. They can incorporate a variety of custom elements to further enhance your logo, business name or any other graphics you can think of. This can include a trimless edge, neon highlights, 3D lettering, color-changing LEDs, custom textures, perforated returns, and other LED illumination options such as halo lit, face lit, dual lit, or reverse lit. When combining elements together, they can be bold, striking and packed with wow-factor.

Channel letter signs are the top requested choice for most outdoor storefront signage due to their versatility and customizable features. Check out our gallery above to view just a sample of our work.

Cabinet Signs

Cabinet signs are the perfect sign choice for retail stores or a business with multiple tenants. They are most desired for their durability, low maintenance, and how easy sign faces are to replace. They can be illuminated and customized to include practically any type of logo, font style, and colour scheme so standing out won’t be an issue.

They are extremely flexible and are one of the most cost-effective methods of advertising. They can be mounted to any building, wall or strong structure for added stability and are made out of highly durable materials to withstand even the harshest Canadian weather for years to come.


Awning Business Signs

Awning signs are a popular feature for many businesses, and for good reason. They enhance your business’s curb appeal by providing a decorative, classic look that just isn’t available with other signs. As an added bonus, business awnings can provide additional advertising space to promote your products, services, and brand. Additionally, they are great for protecting your property from outdoor elements such as rain, snow, and even the sun.

With various materials, shapes and sizes to choose from, they are fully customizable to match your business décor and colours – helping to take your signage to the next level with a high-end unique look that’s consistent with your overall brand.


Projected Blade Signs

If you’re looking for an eye-catching sign that drives foot traffic to your location, blade signs are an excellent choice. They are a great way to catch the attention of pedestrian shoppers in dense location such as plazas, shopping centers, or busy streets as they are perpendicular to the flow of traffic. They’re typically double-sided and stand out to passerby no matter which direction they are coming from. Blade signs are well-crafted customizable signs that can be designed in many unique styles to help you stand out and to meet your branding needs.


Don’t see what you’re looking for? The above examples are just a sample of the types of signs we design, manufacture, print, and install.

Words cannot express how much we enjoy working with Tim and John at Grand River Sign Design. We first used their business when we were looking to add signage to our location after years of working without much signage. The quality of work that they produce, and their customer service is bar none. When they come to do a site visit they are prompt and professional, and offer expert advice on what size and locations make signage stand out. Their turnaround time is great, and all of their work really has transformed our business! We look forward to many more years working with this dynamic team
