Monument Signs FAQ

What goes into buying a monument sign?

The process is rather lengthy and can take up to 6 months, depending on the municipality. All cities regulate what kind, the size, materials, and the presence of LED’s in monument signs. We start with our customer. We gather what they would like, any design characteristics they would prefer and we draw up a rough sketch. We provide budgetary pricing based on a review of the municipalities ordinances and what our customer is looking for. If that is satisfactory, we collect a deposit. Once we have received the deposit then we begin working with the city on obtaining the necessary permits. Sometime we have to go to planning committee meetings and present our design. With permits in hand, we begin to manufacture the sign. Simple, one piece monument signs, can be installed in 6 weeks (if everything goes perfectly). Other more complicated signs can take up to 12-16 weeks.

What are the options for a monument sign?

The options on a sign are completely controlled by municipal ordinance. The height and color are all mandated by ordinances. If we include a LED message board, the number of times that the message changes and the colors on the board can be regulated. All of this is part of Optimum Signs review that we do with the municipality and our customer..

I have an existing monument sign. Can we reuse some of it to lower the cost?

As with anything you can. In most cases, trying to reuse old components ends up costing more. Trying to retrofit a sign that has been in place for years is a very manual process. Light boxes that were square when they were installed, aren’t any more. It requires adding additional supports, welding new structure, or even cutting and the fabrication of new metal work.
