Pylon Signs

About the Pylon Signs

A pylon sign is a large Sign usually placed at the entrance facing the street. They can have the logo of your business or the name of the tenants in a building. Pylons require Municipal Permits to be made.

For cars and pedestrians, looking at your sign is important, that’s how they find out where your business is. If your sign is an enormous Pylon Sign by the street that stands out of everything, they will surely know where you are. Big Logo, Big Exposure. As simple as that.

There are two general types of Pylon Signs. Pylon Signs which are shared among many people, in which case sometimes customization is out of the question to keep it simple. And Pylon Signs that are owned by one business, and the can portrait a big and customized logo of their company, completely unrivaled.

Pylon Signs require a special permit. So you definitively will need an expert guidance in order to achieve this project. In Billboard Connection we are your experts.

It mainly an architectural structure, so take care of it as one. Every project has unique properties, like metal that will need cleaning every now and then, or paint that will need to be retouched every couple of years. Call us if you need renovating an Old Pylon Sign
