Did you know custom monument signs can boost visibility for your business?

Call Forerunner Signs & Graphics to create the most attractive monument signs today!

Monument signs are outdoor signs ideal for companies with a large area outside their building. They are free-standing signs that require no support from a large architectural structure. When businesses want prospective customers to see their outdoor signs from a distance, they install monument signs.

You can easily customize them to incorporate different designs and features that improve versatility. Regardless of your location, monument signs can provide the visibility you want for your business on a busy street. You can customize your monument signs in many different ways, but certain factors affect their performance.

Monument Signs Design Factors

While designing a new custom monument sign for your business, you have to consider the following factors:

Contrast of Colors:

The color contrast factor is important for monument signs as this signage is supposed to capture attention from a distance. You can use vibrant colors that are easy to spot and even use your brand colors to mark the monument sign as an important element of your branding.

Material Choice:

Monument signs are supposed to be durable and long-lasting, without any repair costs for years. Therefore, wisely select a material that can withstand weather conditions, expected and unexpected damage. The most common choice of materials for monument signs are acrylic, metal and aluminum, plastic, wood, and stone.

Design Simplicity:

If the monument sign is not easy to understand, you may end up losing customers. You can communicate your message using simple words and designs to make the sign look professional and stylish. Avoid complicated text, graphics, and too many colors. Only then will your sign look interesting to your potential customers or visitors.


It’s imperative to design your monument sign based on the location you will place it. Select the location carefully and make sure it’s in direct line of sight from the main road or the street you are targeting. You can test the visibility by standing 100 feet away from the sign’s possible location to determine whether it will be visible.
