Pylon Sign


  • What types of signs do we offer?
    We offer a wide variety of signs, from small vinyl decals to large pylon signs and everything in between. We are a one-stop shop for all your sign needs. Basically, if it’s not a billboard, we probably do it.
  • What are we allowed?
    What kind of sign you are allowed really depends on what city/town/township you are in and what your zoning ordinance dictates. Luckily, we have Denise, who is our procurement specialist that investigates zoning ordinances for you to make sure you know exactly what you are and are not allowed. We will handle your signage project from the beginning.
  • What kind of sign should I get?
    We can’t really say what kind of sign you should get until we know what kinds of signs you are allowed. However, we can provide a couple of suggestions based on where you are. ​ If you are in a multi-tenant building, more often than not, you are only allowed a wall sign for your store frontage. If this is the case, the best way to advertise your business is channel letters. Their distinct shape and lighting statistically catch the eye of passersby and potential customers more than a simple cabinet sign. If your business is in a stand-alone building, you have a multitude of options ranging from pylon signs to monuments as well as large wall signs, so people can see you from the road. ​ Consider your building and your property type. Large set backs typically give you more options. Check with us! Let us find out what your ordinance allows, and we can go from there. In the meantime, peep our different sign pages and their descriptions to see what looks the most intriguing to you.
  • How fast can I get it?
    Our standard turnaround time (design, permitting, production, and install) is 4-6 weeks. However, we do understand emergency situations and will do our absolute best to accommodate whatever circumstances you bring to the table. Give us a call and we can assure you that we will do our best!
  • How much are signs?
    Price varies, but what research has found is that there is a correlation between the amount of money you spend and the advertising benefit you receive as a result. For example, an electronic message center is comparatively the most expensive type of sign you can buy. However, studies have shown that the return on investment (ROI) is much more significant than if you do newspaper ads or TV commercials. Advertising value is measured by CPM, or cost per thousand impressions. At $.74 per thousand impressions, electronic message centers are less costly than TV, radio, newspaper, and billboards.
  • How far do you travel?

  • What materials are commonly used for outdoor signs?

  • How long does the sign-making process usually take?
    This will vary widely depending on what type of sign is ordered and what time of year. We work diligently to keep lead times down, but warmer times of the year bring more work, which inevitably affects that installation date. There are shorter lead times for signage that includes just a panel and some vinyl, whereas a full-on, custom main ID sign could take up to 10 weeks.
  • Can we assist with the sign installation?
    We absolutely offer sign installation. We have a very experienced install team of licensed sign specialists and assistants.
  • What size limitations do we have for custom signs?
    We have the capabilities for almost any size sign, but we work with township and city ordinances to figure out what is allowed for the zone of the business so that we can acquire permits for the sign. Therefore, we are only limited by those regulations. The same goes for sign placement, as there are often times minimum setback requirements.
  • What maintenance is required for outdoor signs?
    Painted aluminum signs should be maintained like a car. Washed every week or two (more in the winter on signs close to the road) with any paint-friendly cleaning product.
  • Are our signs weather-resistant?
    Like a car, they are weather resistant to a point. If you don’t maintain your sign, you will see aging years down the road.
  • Can we create signage for events or trade shows?
    Yes, we can!
  • What are the differences between vinyl, acrylic, and metal signs?
    When it comes to material, it’s all about the application. Vinyl graphics are typically used for things such as door decals, panels, and vehicles. It can be for a short-term or long-term situation. Acrylic signage is dimensional. It gives life to a piece, whether it be your logo on the side of your building, some address numbers, or an interior standoff sign with your logo or other information on it inside your office. These can be painted or covered with graphics to achieve whatever design idea you are looking for. Metal signs, from channel letters to monument signs and pylon signs, are the most common for business identification. These signs can be illuminated or not and will always carry a dimension to them that will stand out above all other signage.
  • Do we offer illuminated or LED signs?
    Yes, absolutely. We specialize in custom, illuminated signs and we are one of the top dealers in Michigan of Electronic Message Centers.
  • Can we match specific colors or branding guidelines?
    Yes. We always make sure everything is in accordance with branding guidelines and that we have accurate color-matching capabilities.
  • What file types are accepted for custom designs?
    Vector artwork files like .ai, .eps, or .svg are the easiest. However, if you cannot access the original vector files of your logo or design, our designers can work on recreating the artwork for production to the best of their abilities.
  • Do we offer shipping or delivery for signs?
    We install signage every single day, sometimes right around the corner and sometimes as far as Colorado. We quote sign installations all over the country.
  • Can we create ADA-compliant signage?
    Yes, we have a lot of experience with ADA-compliant signage and can do standard designs or more custom, branded designs.
  • What warranty or guarantees come with our signs?

  • How can I inquire about the progress of my sign order?
    You will have a personal account manager who will communicate with you throughout the process and will be available to answer any questions.
