What Is a Pylon Sign?

A pylon sign is a very tall outdoor sign held up by one or two posts. There may be one cabinet attached or multiple. Each cabinet is an opportunity to display a brand name. You may have also heard of commercial pylon signs called freestanding signs, as they are not directly attached to a building or a structure.

Types of Pylon Signs

There are four basic kinds of pylon signs. While we offer custom signs and can alter your sign in many ways, knowing the basics will help you narrow down the kind of sign you’d like. The most popular types of pylon signs include:

  • Single pole: They have only one supporting pole.
  • Twin pole: They have two supporting poles.
  • Covered pole: The single pole is covered to look more aesthetically pleasing.
  • Custom lightbox: There is a lightbox that may advertise multiple businesses.

There are also illuminated pylon signs and non-lit pylon signs. Although pylon signs are available in both non-lit and illuminated, most businesses prefer the lit pylon sign for its higher visibility.

Uses for Pole and Pylon Signs

Pole and Pylon signs have similar uses to other commercial business signs. Their advantage is mainly in their visual presence and their reach. They accomplish similar goals to other signs, just with a much wider area of effect. Some of the uses for these signs include:

  • Wayfinding: Help people find their way to your parking lot or know that they are in the right area for your business as they are driving by on the street.
  • Branding: All pylon signs should have a large branded graphic (like your business name or logo) to maximize the business’s visibility in the area and help make positive brand impressions.
  • Promotion: Pylon signs may incorporate digital message boards which allow you to add more specific promotions to the sign.
