When companies want to establish prominent commercial markers, they often turn to post and panel signs. They are designed to be streamlined, high impact, and to get your name out there to passersby, including motorists. This is why more businesses in the Chicagoland area are turning to Vital Signs USA for post and panel signs.
There are many different styles of post and panel signs from decorative alternatives that serve ornamental purposes to basic setups for short term use on job sites. By breaking down the post and panel signage options, we will guide you in your decision making.
Post and Panel Signs Defined
A flat panel that is mounted between two poles is known as a post and panel sign. These markers are freestanding and are considered a type of monument sign. When choosing a post and panel system, one of your main considerations will be materials. We primarily use signfoam, aluminum, wrought iron, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and wood.
These are the main materials used for all sorts of properties whether it’s a local park, a large commercial office park, or a luxury vacation resort. Each has its own unique qualities. For instance, in all weather, signfoam and PVC can stand up to the elements. Or, for timeless elegance, wood and wrought iron are good options. Your guides as you pick materials should be basic functionality and achieving your desired visual effect.
Bigger Is Better
The size of your post and panel sign will be determined by what you plan to achieve with your marker. For example, you want motorists to be able to see signs that show where your parking lot is. Consequently, a bigger panel is necessary. Small businesses, retail stores, and restaurants that want to catch the eyes of pedestrians and car traffic will also want larger signage. For wayfinding and directional applications on a property, smaller post and panel signs are usually appropriate.
Your exterior sign can be enhanced several ways. You can create more of a visual impact using decorative sign headers, T-straps, base caps, post finials, iron scrolls, and other supplemental accessories. A post and panel display with decorative fittings will inspire onlookers to learn more about your message, location, or brand.

A monument sign is a freestanding sign that stands directly on the ground or ground level foundation. Also referred to as a low-profile signs, this type of sign will often include a brick or stone base structure supporting the sign cabinet. A monument sign is often used to mark a place of significance or the entrance to a location. Schools and churches often will have a monument sign identifying their institution and the monument sign may include an electronic message center for keeping the public informed about upcoming events.
Pole and pylon signs are an effective way to rise above the crowd. This monolithic styling is used for primary site identification, directions and information.
