First impressions matter the most. Exterior signage gives you the opportunity to make the best first impression imaginable on your visitors. Empire Graphics can develop an exterior architectural signage program that will fit your exact needs, whether it be for brand identification and representation, or way-finding signage to guide your visitors and staff.
TYPES OF EXTERIOR SIGNS
A monument sign provides an excellent format for street advertising while representing an image of the pride you have in your company.
Typically installed low to the ground, a monument sign is a detached, freestanding sign whose sign surface is attached to a proportionate solid base or structural frame. They can be internally or externally illuminated.
These permanent structures create a professional entrance to your company. They are built from materials that are proven to withstand the elements of nature. Monument signage comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. The goal is to install one that effectively represents your facility.
PYLON (FREE STANDING)
Pylon signs, often called pole or freestanding signs, are erected independent of any building or structure. Since they are typically mounted higher in the air than monument signs, pole signs offer excellent visibility from a distance.
One of the many advantages of pylon signs is to separate your business from the rest along your street, reflecting your company's identity and professionalism. The pole(s) can be covered with an attractive shroud to provide an added dimension for maximum impact.
Pylon signs are typically illuminated, either internally (most common) or externally. Really looking for maximum impact and message capabilities? Add an electronic message center (LED sign) for an unparalleled eye-catching display!
SANDBLASTED / ROUTED SIGN
A sign represents your image. Image is everything in business. Although sandblasted signs are more expensive than 'quick sign' vinyl sticker-style sign solutions, a sandblasted sign will last for decades. A typical vinyl sign has an exterior life expectancy of fewer than 5 years.
Whether you are looking for a residential entrance sign, development directional signs, business park tenant signs, lobby or reception displays, church reader boards or golf course signage, we can provide a solution that will exceed your expectations and leave a lasting impression.
REAL ESTATE / YARD / SITE SIGN
Whether it's one sign or hundreds of signs, put your name in front of prospective customers with eye-catching and attractive real estate, yard, or site signs.
Perhaps one of the most widely used, visible, and effective promotional type of signs around, these types of signs can advertise your business, sell your home, or, for campaign purposes, elect your local, state or federal politician!
Depending on their intended use, real estate, yard, or site signs come in various shapes and sizes, material options, decoration methods and more.
Installation methods are just as varied. By utilizing sign stakes or frames, you can quickly install and remove some of these signs around your local community (keeping local ordinances in mind, of course!). To draw the attention of a passerby, lawn signs can feature bold, high contrast colors and large fonts. If you're looking for something more durable and semi-permanent, choose a site sign that can be installed on posts set in the ground.
