Signs Manufacturing Corporation
Pole Signs and Pylon Signs are sometimes referred to as Road Side Signs, Highway Signs, Freeway Signs, or small Billboards.
On the detail pages that follow (¬tabs to left) discover how we make each pole or pylon sign to last; including the use of CNC manufacturing, structural-steel frames, rust-proof metal, high-end automotive paint, high-impact plastics or strong flexible-face materials, and most importantly, sophisticated protective coatings. All our signs include these many hidden features, critically important to you but often ignored by competitors to lower their cost. We even add self-cleaning properties.
We commonly build pole and pylon signs with real and artificial brick, stone, and stucco exterior finishes. View our "Bricks & Masonry" page, tabbed to the left.
Pole or pylon signs with color graphics and PinLights™ LED first-surface lighting is a hands-down winner. Signs Manufacturing incorporates a patent pending design into our unique new-look concept. Visit our "LED Sign Faces" tab to the left.
We champion energy-saving signs solutions that save our customers money while protecting our environment. Explore our "Lighting Choices" tab with its own "Energy Savings" tab. PinLights™ can even economically be solar powered.
Photos of many varied sign designs are interspersed on the detail pages tabbed on the left.

Can you afford not to?
"I almost made a huge mistake by not listening to you and visiting your showroom prior to buying my sign. I thought I knew what I wanted, after listening to so many salespeople...boy, was I wrong. My vision of the sign did not jibe with what it would really turn out to be, even after viewing so many drawings. It was obvious the moment I entered the showroom. If I had stuck to my guns my sign would have been a disaster. I would have wasted a lot of money."
Cecil Drake, Drake Communications

Why Buy Factory-Direct from a State-Licensed Company?
Why not buy from a Sign Dealer (also called a Sign Broker or a Sign Store?)
Would you give a car dealer $10,000 and tell him to buy you the best car he can for the money, sight unseen (or from a drawing?) Don’t you think you would get the car that made him the most?
Do you think you could meet your needs asking for the cheapest car he can buy?
Why would a sign dealer (sign broker or sign store) be any different? Remember, they are merely buying a sign from a manufacturer to resell to you, usually to resemble a drawing, making the most money they can.
Believing “...a sign is a sign” gets you a Yugo instead of a Cadillac. Remember the Yugo? They didn’t last very long, either.
Also, most sign dealers, sign brokers and sign stores cannot legally install or service an electric sign. Ask to see their license.
Ask to see a manufacturer's license also. A few are not licensed to do electrical work, either, they also have to hire other companies to install the signs they make.
Now, who provides the warranty? The manufacturer, the installer, the salesman, anyone? If the sign was installed illegally do you think they'll honor their warranty? Did they REALLY obtain your City sign permit? Is the sign even safe?
As a large, UL listed manufacturer, our name is on all our signs. Just like you, we can't afford to have a bad sign destroy our business. We have to care. Particularly with our LIFETIME* warranty.
Summary - Pole Signs and Pylon Signs In a Nutshell
The Special Features and Benefits of Signs Manufacturing's Pole Signs and Pylon Signs
Lasting Quality – Your Sign will ALWAYS look good to potential customers
Special Features and Benefits of doing business with Signs Manufacturing
The Benefits of Buying All Signs Factory-Direct
You need answers to these questions before you buy (anything from anyone.) Don’t be a naïve consumer.
Is the sign installer working for you, or the factory, or only the sign seller (broker?) Who is legally responsible? Who has the financial ability to remedy accidents and omissions? Single-source responsibility is best. Product liability insurance is good, too.
The Additional Benefits of Buying Our Sunburst LED Displays™ Factory-Direct
* A poorly installed EMC can void a factory warranty, leaving YOU to haggle responsibility with the installer and sign seller (broker.) For instance, without a separate grounding electrode being installed during the installation of most LED signs the manufacturer’s warranty is void. Will you know if your installer doesn’t install a grounding electrode? Problems will probably begin to occur months later.
Large metal areas will be reinforced to prevent "oil-canning".
The structural-steel frame inside the sign is separately painted before the skins are installed; important to prevent rust stains later.
We commonly build pylon signs with real and artificial brick, stone, and stucco exterior finishes. View our "Bricks & Masonry" page, tabbed to the left.
Our signs are properly engineered to withstand the winds of North Texas (100 m.p.h.); signs attached to poles are welded, not bolted, in place.
We employ Certified Welders. Horizontal, vertical, and overhead.
We are virtually the only sign company in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex employing certified welders.
The Importance of Sign Thickness
The minimum allowable thickness of a sign depends on the type of internal lighting and the type and size of the sign face.
Lighting and sign face types will be discussed later.
It is very important that the sign be thick enough that the lighting in the sign does not show as “hot spots” or “zebra striping” on the face of your sign. Either of these makes your sign look “cheap” no matter what its cost. In some instances these can be so bad that a sign is not readable at night. You’ve seen them.
All of this makes the use of extruded aluminum sign frames problematic in building a quality sign, to say nothing about a strong sign (no structural steel inner frame) since extrusions are only available for limited cabinet depths; however some sign companies continue to attempt to do so. Signs Manufacturing does not use extruded cabinets precisely for these reasons.
We calculate what is required to make a proper and impressive sign for you, and then we build it.
It is more expensive to do the job right, but what is the value of a “cheap” sign that gives potential customers a negative impression of your business?
The Importance of Retainer Width
Equally important to the appearance of the sign is the width of the retainer (the ring of metal around the sign face that covers the mechanism that holds the sign face in the cabinet.)
This border plays a very important role in the apparent quality of your sign, and both size and color must be considered in the overall design.
This makes the use of pre-made extruded aluminum sign frames undesirable.
Tabs to other components of a pole/pylon sign are listed down the left side of this page.
Our modern 1.2 acre (under roof) production facility, with both high and low dock doors, is located on a 3 acre concrete pad; the additional area being used for parking and "clean" outside storage. One-half acre is planted greenbelt.
If you are seriously considering buying from someone else we suggest that you also visit their location to observe if they can actually do what they say they can; or at least “Google” their address. A lot of competitors who present themselves as manufacturers actually only buy and resell signs, working out of a house, office building, small warehouse, or storefront!
