Monument signs are ground level signs with a low overall height.

This type of signage is becoming more popular due to various city signage size and height limitations. The base of these signs is usually as wide as the sign itself. Whether the sign is designed to be memorable and attention grabbing or designed architecturally to match the architecture of the building itself, clear easy to read lettering should be used. The main function of these signs is to alert motorists that a business is ahead, allowing them adequate time to safely plan to get off the road and into the business parking.
