These larger type signs, typically identify shopping centers and strip malls.  They list all the tenants in that center and sometimes include an electronic message center. The electronic message centers allow the shopping center to advertise, events, specials, and advertise new tenants with ease. Additionally, the message centers can serve as emergency notices regarding weather and traffic.

Pole Signs:

Also used for visibility from a distance.  Although smaller than pylon signs, pole signs will usually contain one tenant. Many times they include a changeable copy panel or even an electronic message center. The electronic message center provides real-time messages for communicating special events or product offerings. Pole signs, like the pylon signs incorporate internal illumination.

Made from aluminum, brick, stone or even faux masonry or stucco, monument signs work well for identifying business locations for local traffic.  Monument sign illumination will vary from internally illuminated or externally spotlit.
