EPS Foam Monument Sign with Gold-Leaf Gilded Letters and Faux Stone Pillars
The photos on this page show over 100 entrance and monument signs for stores, corporate buildings, churches, lawyers, veterinarians, golf courses, parks, apartment complexes, business parks, etc. These signs are typically 4 to 16 feet wide, and are mounted between posts, on a wall, or on a monument base made concrete blocks with a brick, stone, or stucco veneer. We do not make the masonry base for these type of monument signs, but work with contractors who do.
Monument signs are large (typically 6 to 15 ft wide), low (4 to 9 ft high), freestanding signs, often mounted on a solid base on the ground, sometimes with pillars, located at the entrance road to a residential community or town, a park, a church, a corporation, an industrial park, a large farm or estate, or a hotel or resort. They can be made perpendicular to the main street, and two-sided, so passing cars from either direction can see the sign; often, however, they are perpendicular or at a 45 degree angle to an entrance road or driveway and are single-sided so they can be seen by a car entering the driveway, with the back of the sign hidden.
The term "monument" strictly refers to those signs with a substantial stone, concrete or brick base laid on a concrete foundation (referred to here as masonry monuments, or (B) below). However, we use the term more generally here to refer to three types of bases/support systems for large, freestanding, roadside or entrance signs mounted near the ground. We make and sell all three of described below.
TYPES OF MONUMENT & ENTRANCE SIGNS
Carved HDU Sign Mounted on Two Wood Posts
(A) Post & Panel Signs. These signs are supported by wood or wrought iron (steel posts), sometimes with lateral beams mounted on the bottom or back of the sign. Posts typically vary from 4 inches in width (4 x 4's) to as much as 12 inches in width, and can be square, round, or rustic (logs).The sign itself (the panel) is usually sandblasted or carved HDU or wood, described in Product Line 5. Less expensive ones have MDO or foam PVC signs mounted on them. For large signs, we reinforce the panels with steel, aluminum or wood beams. Wrought iron supports can have scrolls on them.
HDU Sign with Gold-Leaf Gilded Letters and Marble Background mounted on Stone Monument Base
(B) Masonry Monument Signs. These signs usually have masonry bases, often with side pillars, which can be made with a poured concrete, concrete block or brick core (sometimes large ones have a hollow wood frame core) mounted on a concrete slab or footer foundation, and faced with one of the following: real stone, brick, poured concrete, stucco, marble, ceramic tile, or a wood, HDU or a bronze sign face. These often have separate large stand-off letters and logos made of metal (aluminum, bronze, iron, or gold-plated aluminum, plastic, HDU, and metal-coated HDU or wood letters . We do not make or install these type of masonry monument bases; however we make the sign faces (including separate letters and artwork) that can be mounted on them.
EPS Foam Monument Sign with Gold-Leaf Gilded Letters and Faux Stone Base and Pillars
(C) Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Foam (with Hard Surface) Monument Signs. These have the same appearance as masonry monument signs (B) above) but are less expensive and are much easier to install. A variety of exterior surfaces is available, including faux stone, brick, stucco and marble. They have a hard protective coating over an EPS foam interior and are rugged and durable. Like (B), they can have a variety of sign faces, including sandblasted or carved HDU, wood, or ceramic tile, and can also have stand-off metal or HDU letters installed on the sign face. We can provide custom models as well as the standard models shown on the page above. Most of the photos for EPS standard models ( at bottom of this page) were designed by others, and are included here only as examples of what the standard models look like. The integrated assembly is ready for simple installation by the buyer or a handyman contractor. Art Sign Works sells all of these various types of bases and supports.
EPS Foam Monument Sign with Gold-Leaf Gilded Letters and Faux Brick Monument Base and Pillars
We sell complete sign assemblies for (A) and (C), ,and sign faces for (B), throughout the USA and Canada. (A) and (C) can be shipped anywhere in the USA or Canada for easy on-site installation. We do not sell the masonry bases for (B), Masonry Monuments. Masonry monument bases usually requires detailed architectural drawings and government permits, specialty labor, and can take several days or more to construct the monument (pouring the concrete foundation, laying blocks, bricks, or stone, installing electric) and to install the sign on the site. However, we can supply and ship the sign or letters to a local contractor for installation on the base.
We will design you a custom entry or monument sign of any of the three types above, at no cost, assuming you buy the base/support system. You can either order just the sign (for (A) and (B)), or the sign plus posts or pillars, base, etc. ((A) and (C) only) in an easy to install kit form. Please browse the designs below. Please refer to the ID number (e.g, M6480) and Model number (for (C) only) if you want your sign to be similar to one or more signs shown in this Gallery.
