Central Valley, CA – Monument Signs for Business Complexes

Monument signs are a great way to capture and guide potential customers. They provide a lot of space for creativity, are multipurpose, adds professionalism and looks amazing! They can be used to represent multiple business or just one business.

City Signs recently installed a sign in Lathrop, CA.  

The image above illustrates a monument that City Signs created. The sign is used to represent the addresses at the location and to show which businesses are present. If you would like a monument with a similar design, you would need to ask for a texture coated monument with FCOs, panels and standoffs.

How Are Monuments Made?

Monuments take a longer time than other signs to make because they’re relatively large and require a lot of body work. However, they are also one of the most eye-catching types of signs in the market.


For the most part, monument signs need to be approved by the county/city. This may affect the design of your monument therefore, check with the county/city of where you want your monument sign to be. At City Signs, we also provide a permit specialist, who can guide you in your permitting needs.


The first step of creating a monument is welding. Welding is the process of joining metals together using heat. At City Signs, we have welders that take their time and focus on the details of your sign. They ensure that the skeleton of the monument is the right size and has good support.

Next, the monument gets bodywork and paint done. At this stage, our team tries to make sure your sign is smooth and without blemishes. This process helps the painter have an even and level monument to paint.

Afterwards, all the tiny details of the sign are put together. Placing the panels, the FCOs and the vinyl together. The sign goes through quality control to ensure that it looks nice and follows all the details of the provided paperwork.
