The Low Profile That Gets Noticed
The most distinguishing characteristic of a monument sign, also called a ground sign, is that it has a low profile with little or no open space between the ground and the sign.
Monument signs can be a single tenant or multi-tenant sign; be internally illuminated with LED lights or neon lights; externally illuminated with spotlights; or have LED display screens incorporated into it in various creative ways. Furthermore, they may be constructed of a combination of brick, wood, metal, or materials similar in appearance.
Similar to the pylon sign, monument signs may be installed along feeder roads near freeways or along major thoroughfares, too. In contrast, monument signs are intended to be viewed at the eye-level of passersby, and some jurisdictions only allow for this type of sign.
