Pylon signs are freestanding signs that are often supported by one or two poles. An aluminum or steel frame with a rigid or flexible face is typically used. Pylon signs can be visible from a long distance, making them an excellent advertisement for your company and a powerful tool for attracting attention. Your message can be shown on one or both sides. Pylon signs are frequently illuminated or backlit with LED or fluorescent lighting, but they can also be kept unlit.
