Pylon Signs

Boosting business visibility  

A Pylon Sign is a freestanding sign that is usually supported by either one of two poles.  They can display your message on either one or both sides. Often pylon signs are illuminated or backlit with LED or florescent lamps , however, they also can be left without illumination.  They are commonly made with an aluminum or steel frame with a rigid or flexible face.

  • Pylon signs are vital if you want people to easily locate your office or have the ability to read about your company from afar
  • One reason we recommend pylon signs is for their visibility. Pylon signs stand tall enough to be easily readable from 200 yards away or even farther. 
  • Multiple businesses can be seen in one place, helping guide customers to where they want to go. This also saves a lot of space. Instead of having dozens of signs scattered around, you can just have one!
  • Pylon signs can be designed to fit your exact specifications.  Here at Plumb Signs we can design, build, install and service your Pylon sign in any material, size, or shape of your choice.  When invite you to browse our galley and set up a meeting with our team of design and building experts.

Neon Signs

The first Neon sign was made in 1910 after its discovery by British scientists in 1898  

Neon signs are electric signs lighted by long luminous gas-discharge tubes that contain rarefied neon or other gases.   Neon signs were extremely popular in the United States from about the 1920s to 1950s and continue to be a favored by many today.

  • Neon tube signs are produced by skilled craftsman than bend glass tubes into shapes 
  • The interior of the tubes may be coated with a thin phosphorescent powder coating, affixed to the interior wall of the tube by a binding material
  • Pure neon gas is used to produce only about one-third of the colors (mostly shades of red and orange, and some warmer or more intense shades of pink).
  • A similar look to neon can also be achieved today using LED rope products.  They are faster, less expensive, and easier to repair than tradition neon.  If you are interested ask your Plumb Signs account representative for a free quote.
