A pylon sign, also known as a marquee sign, is a type of freestanding sign that is typically tall and has exposed poles. Pylon signs are similar to pole signs except the bases of a pylon signs are not always poles. Pylon signs are often used to serve the same purpose as most pole signs and monument signs: to identify a business so that it can be seen by anybody, especially motorists.
Your pylon sign can be as imaginative and creative as you want it to be, though you should keep your budget in mind. The panel part of your pylon sign can be pretty much anything you want. For the base, you can choose between one or more metal poles, brick, an arch made of brick on concrete, as well as a few other options, depending on where you are, your budget, and what you want.
Pylon signs are often quite large and this brings up a possible issue: zoning. Different municipalities and neighborhoods throughout the San Diego area have different regulations with regards to outdoor signage. You want to make sure that your pylon sign complies with all these regulations, that is why it is crucial to work with a local sign studio who knows all the rules and the processes for applying for the right permits.
