Sign Monument Cost Guideline

Sign Monument Cost – What To Expect.

The most common question our Sales Department receives is…

Question: “What is the cost of one of your monument signs?”

Answer: “It Depends On What You Want.”

We will listen to your needs by first asking the stage and scope of your project. Do you have an established community, but the developer didn’t think about a sign? Or do you have a sign that is outdated or damaged?

Ask yourself – “Do I want something fantastic, something nice, or just something?”

We house the best designers, the best technology, and the best solutions in the industry. Be open in discussing your budget and your needs and we will deliver the best solution available.

Need cost examples? To get an idea of neighborhood entrance sign monument costs, let us start by looking at some specific projects of real-life sign monuments.

This was new unit to replace an existing dilapidated sign. It has double sided graphics, and the street address on one column. This sign monument cost was $8k delivered.

And here is an example of a brand new community development that just broke ground. We designed this sign monument to match the architecture of the housing, and faux matched the stacked stone that was common on the construction. This brand new double-sided entrance monument was around $14k delivered with the faux stacked stone match:

This example is for an existing retirement community that needed an updated sign monument. Here is the design and the final product before shipment, which ran around $7k delivered single sided graphics.

In this example, the community needed a modest-sized monument but the faux brick MUST match the leasing office the sign would be installed next to. They sent us a camera phone picture of the brick, and we matched it dead on. This example ran around $9k delivered with single sided graphics.

New construction is easy to design as there is nothing to match! We came up with this unique entrance sign monument and added additional 3-D embossed elements to the columns for around $11k delivered.

Can We Use Or Modify What We Have?

While every entrance sign monument is a ‘new project,’ we can of course integrate (recycle) any existing sign elements if at all possible to save costs. Send us photography of what you have on site, and we will gladly recommend any cost-saving options.

Gold Inlay Sign Letters – New Product!

Gold Inlay Sign Letters make your community look fantastic!

We can use any font (typeface) and/or any logo on our computer router tables and produce individual letters & logos. These pieces are made in a wide variety of materials such as PVC plastic, high density urethane (HDU) Sign Foam and even metal.

This is a new product to the sign industry – gold inlay sign letters:

Gold Inlay Sign Letters On Curved Brick Wall

Let’s walk through a community entrance sign structure that is a curved wall in brick. Individual sign letters are the perfect solution for a curved wall as a flat panel will not mount correctly.

Our product arrives with everything included for a one-man installation. Buying direct from us (the manufacturer) and installing yourself will save you half the costs of contracting a local sign franchise.

The first step is to tape the paper template to the wall, step back, and make sure it is in perfect position. The paper template has a black in plotted outline of each character, and indicates where to drill the holes.

Paper Template On Curved Brick Wall

Using a 3/16″ masonry bit and a cordless drill, all holes are drilled into the facade as shown:

Holes Drilled Into Wall Through Paper Template

The next step is to screw in the stainless threaded rods (known as “pins”) into the back of each element.

Stainless Studs Inserted Into The Back Of Each Character

Now, you simply ‘pop’ each element into place. We take into account repeating letters have the exact same holes in the back, so you are not looking for the correct letter ‘N’ of the two in this project, for example.

Here are all of the letters in position:

Once everything is in place, you remove and dispose the paper template!
