Calfornia is known for its larger-than-life signs. After all, we are home to the gigantic and famous Hollywood sign that overlooks Tinsel Town. However, there is hardly anything as visible from a distance or stops you in your tracks more than a massive pole sign does.
Pole signage draws people’s eyes and lets them know your business is up and running. If you own a company and want a sign that both attracts customers and makes your business stand out, then a pole sign is the solution for you.
Customers see these special types of landmark signs and instantly recognize your brand or get curious about the new kid in town who has such grand signage. In either case, your signage is instantly recognized from miles away, which translates to more foot traffic for your business.
What Is a Pole Sign?
Pole signs, sometimes called a “pylon sign,” are a type of business sign with the main cabinet structure atop a tall pole. Materials vary, but they are usually metal. Pole signs stand anywhere from 20 to 80 feet high.
Think gas station or fast food signs mounted on the top of very high poles that are visible from the interstate when you pass them in your car, and you know exactly what we’re talking about when we say pole sign.
The Genius Behind Appealing and Beautiful Pole Signs
Keep in mind that a pole sign needs a professional and dynamic design or the result is going to give the phrase “sticking out like a sore thumb” a completely new meaning. What follows are a few well-designed and appealing pole sign examples.
This wooden commercial sign’s oasis approach was custom-made-to-order for the Kimpton Goodland Hotel. The pole sign’s 3-D effect and painted lettering combine perfectly with the rustic wood background for an aesthetically-pleasing and professional appearance. Also, the signage blends in very well with the palm trees and other parts of the landscape.
