Home » Monument Signs

Visibility is one of the key elements to a successful business. If customers don’t even know you exist, how would they know about your products or services?

Finding ways to increase visibility can be a challenge for Orlando business owners. It’s important to find new ways to get noticed. Here’s where a roadside sign solution, like monument signs, can help.

Monument signs: Styles, features, where to buy

Monument signs usually — but not always — contain elements of masonry, The freestanding signs are popular with Orlando, Florida businesses.

Monument signs are designed with a statuesque aesthetic and can be crafted from rock, brick, concrete, stucco, and, perhaps surprisingly to some, lightweight foam that replicates stonework.

These signs are usually used to display your business name. Other details can also be included, like your company logo, address, contact info, and the like. They are usually placed along the road or by the property entrance. Outdoor monument signs are great for pointing customers toward your business.

Any type of outdoor sign is usually the customer’s first point of contact with your business. This first interaction must be a positive one. This can significantly affect how customers perceive your business in Orlando.

Having an impressive entryway is key to creating that positive first impression. As well, monument signs are just the right signs to impress your customers from the get-go. Their size and stylish designs are sure to build a more professional image for your business.

Multi-Tenant Signs

Modern monument signs are also perfect when you have a multi-tenant facility. These signs can be built with multiple sign cabinets that display the various tenants of your building or business complex. This tells customers what type of offices or businesses they can find there.

Each sign cabinet can be illuminated to ensure maximum visibility, even at night. They can be designed to match the business name and logo of each tenant in your facility, too.

Multi-tenant monument signs are perfect for:

What is a monument sign and what purpose does it serve?
Monument signs are large, ground-level signs typically installed at the entrances or driveways for commercial buildings, educational institutions, hospitals, and shopping complexes. They have a large sign face, which makes them perfect for marketing, increased visibility, and branding. Monument signs also function as wayfinding assistance for pedestrians and drivers.
Do I need a permit for a monument sign?
You may need a permit for your monument sign, though that depends on where you install it. If yours is installed on private property, a permit may not be necessary. However, a sign that’s on public land will need to be approved by the City of Orlando. For support obtaining a permit, contact Envision Orlando.
What size can a monument sign be?
A monument sign can be as large or as small as you need it to be. Typically, monument signs range from three to ten feet tall and four to six feet wide. Oftentimes, how big your sign is dependent on how you plan to use it, the space you have available, and how far away people need to be able to read it.
What materials are commonly used to construct monument signs?
Stone, brick, concrete, wood, HDU, and aluminum are some of the most common materials used in monument signage construction. They are durable enough to be used outdoors, offer a high degree of customization, and create a visual appeal. To find the right material for your sign, speak to our team.

Absolutely! Our monument signs are designed and engineered to give you years of hassle-free performance. Our signs resist water damage and fading under Orlando’s strong, year-round sunshine. We install signs securely and professionally, ensuring they can withstand the occasional harsh weather too!
How long does it typically take to manufacture and install a monument sign?
The timeframe to build and install a monument sign depends on a variety of factors, including:
· Size
· Complexity of the design
· Lighting options
· Chosen materials
· Permit applications
· Lead times for raw materials
Generally speaking, a monument sign can take four to six weeks to build; however, for an accurate estimate, speak to our team.
Is a monument sign a freestanding sign?
Yes, monument signs are freestanding signs. They are installed directly on the ground or mounted on supporting pillars. This positioning allows you to install the sign some distance away from your building. Note that heavier signs will require the base to be prepared, such as with a concrete slab, gravel, or reinforced earth.

There are a wide range of monument signs you can choose from, including:
· Stone signs
· Brick signs
· Directory signs
· Illuminated signs

    Loved working with envision Orlando! If you want it done right the first time I highly recommend them. They were nothing but outstanding the entire process. They took my vision and brought it to life. And they gave me input and ideas that I would have never thought of!

    Stephen and Todd at Envision are the definition of professional! Envision handled all of our small business needs from signage to custom vinyl lettering for our product and more. They also helped with logo adjustments which helped our overall image that we were looking for. Every question or request was answered with a "yes, no problem!" and they were extremely flexible and helpful with scheduling while still getting the job done quickly and efficiently. We had spoken to several shops prior to choosing envision and found them to be extremely competitive and affordable. We are very pleased with our choice and would absolutely recommend them!
    Worked with them before so not quite sure what changed in their customer service but I contacted them for a sign and have been out on the back burner for months.Today I asked again and they said they couldn’t do the sign after waiting for so long and them never returning calls. I’m super disappointed in my experience.
    Stephen was amazing to work with and his work was 10/10.

    Todd at Envision was great! He showed up to quote and measure when he said he would, was fantastic through all of the permitting and design process and the final product is perfect! We couldn't be happier with our backlit sign and get compliments all the time. Thank you, Todd!
