A pole sign can raise your brand profile, literally and figuratively. Whether you’re located in a high-traffic area, rural area, or housed on a large piece of property, the pole sign can be custom fitted to suit your situation. Their versatility and cost-effectiveness make the pole sign a highly attractive solution for any business.
Reasons To Choose A Pole Sign
In places where you are competing for attention with other businesses nearby, the pole sign can lift your brand and get you the recognition and awareness to drive traffic and increase sales.
Because a pole sign is a free-standing cabinet sign that sits atop a pole, it becomes a much more efficient solution to fit small spaces while still having a big presence.
On the flip side, in more rural areas or when your business sits on a large piece of property, a pole sign can signal to motorists from a distance, like a beacon that attracts and guides consumers to your location.
Many clients are trying to decide between the two most popular free-standing signs – a monument sign vs. a pole sign. In terms of cost, the pole sign is much easier on your budget compared to the more structurally and architecturally complex monument sign.
In terms of visibility? Well, nothing quite beats the pole sign.
Regardless of location, the pole sign significantly increases visibility. The large double-sided cabinet sign raised up offers an unobstructed view of your brand and logo from every direction.
With LED illumination, the pole sign can boast 360-degree visibility 24/7. Not many signs can say that!
Placement and Permitting
Unless we’re installing the pole sign near an easement, special permitting is not required in most cases. This is also an attractive quality of a pole sign. In many situations, the city may require a pole sign, rather than another type of sign, so it is an easier process to get started.
Before we start the installation and dig, we always do our due diligence and make the right calls to the city to ensure the installation won’t disrupt any power or water lines.
Most cities require the sign to sit at least 10′ back from the property line. It’s important for the pole sign to have a little space and some room to maximize visibility. You also have to consider the installation requirements.
There has to be room for our team to hydro-power a hole for the pole that tends to be between 2-4′ wide and 3-10′ deep. Our initial site survey will give us better clarity about the size and scope of the project, and we’ll be able to provide informed guidance on the best steps forward for your custom pole sign.
Customizing Your Pole Sign
The size of the pole sign should be proportionate to your location and your business. While we understand the desire to go as big as possible, you also want the sign to look good and make a great impression.
Suppose a pole sign is comically large compared to your small business or comically small next to a giant warehouse, parking lot, or corporate campus. In that case, it will feel unnatural, which will affect the way consumers view your business.
We’ve fabricated custom pole signs that vary in size from 10′ to our most recent pole sign project – a 25′ pole sign with LED lighting incorporated into the cabinet signs.
It’s all about balance and proportions, and we’ll help you find that sweet spot.
