A monument sign, like it’s name states, is a monument to the business. It is usually substantial in it’s size and appearance. It can be lighted or unlighted. Monument signs can be made of stone, brick, cinder block with stucco, aluminum or other materials. They can be shaped and painted to look like brick, stone, stucco or other materials. Different faces or letters can be applied to them to provide creative displays and to get good visibility to the business. As with many signs, you are really only limited by your creativeness (and the city sign ordinances).
The difference between a monument sign and a pylon sign is that the pylon sign is going to show multiple occupants. The pylon sign can be a sign with various panels showing the occupants of a business or shopping center with posts on either side. It could also be a lighted cabinet with the business listed. They can be simple or very complex. There are multiple looks and styles.
