Announce your presence!

Pylon Signs can be a great way to attract customers to your store, especially if many retailers are clustered in an area. Bright and flashy, they tell passerby’s everything about your business.


A Canadian Standards Association (CSA) certified shop will ensure that your sign meets the latest safety and quality standards.

Get noticed with a pylon sign

As well as enhancing the visibility of your property or business, pylon signs provide excellent visibility for your business or for your tenants if you own the building. If your business is not visible from the main road, a pylon sign will let your customers know that you exist. Also, a great design will make it easy for your customers to find your store due to the visibility of your sign.

Almost anywhere and at any height, a pylon sign will be visible from a considerable distance.

Pylon Types
A pylon sign is an iconic symbol of the cityscape. It has been around for more than a century and it is still going strong. They are highly customizable and can be made of a combination of many materials, colours, shapes etc.
See below the most common types:


The single-pole pylon sign helps single-tenant businesses to gain the most visibility in their area. They are perfect for branding and marketing your business at a lower cost. One or two lightboxes are suspended from a single-pole that extends from the ground. Can be made with single or double-sided lightboxes, illuminated or not. Your pylon sign can be customized in many different ways. They can be built with Lexan graphics, channel letters, dimensional letters, aluminum cladding, and any colour of your choice.


The twin-pole mount is built with two poles and is typically used to hold one large sign cabinet or several smaller cabinets. The poles are usually made of steel and can be either round or square-shaped. The height of the pole will depend on the height of the box and how many boxes you want to put on it. You may be subject to height restrictions depending on where your business is located.


By using the covered-pole concept, you can create any shape for your pylon sign. Aluminum cladding, dimensional letters, push-thru letters, and channel letters are some of the components that can be used to create a beautiful and modern pylon sign. It can be made of natural or faux stone, wood, or concrete, or you can create a beautiful raised bed landscaping around it.


The main goal of any mall is to attract customers to its storefronts and keep them there for as long as possible. One way to do this is by making sure that all tenants have visibility from outside the mall and that their storefronts are easily accessible from public spaces like streets and sidewalks. The use of pylon signs is one way to achieve this because they can be placed in a strategic location around the mall entrance and can be easily seen from a distance. For multi-tenant complexes, pylon signs can be customized with different logos so that customers know which businesses are inside.


Monument signs are another type of pylon and are usually used to welcome people to an area, such as a corporate head office, a condominium block, or even a municipality, informing them about the area, town, or city that they’re entering. Since it is shorter, it can be made with a variety of materials, including stone veneers, brick, metal or aluminum frames. The sign could be illuminated or not, flat or with dimensional letters. It is a great way to give a warm welcome to your guests.

Here are all the answers to your permitting questions.

A sign bylaw and sign permit process are intended to ensure businesses have equal and fair opportunities to advertise and promote while preserving the aesthetics of the community. A sign permit is required prior to a sign being constructed, moved, altered, placed or repaired in City limits.

A sign permit is required prior to any new signage; or alteration, or relocation of existing signage. The permit fee for new business signs located on a building (wall sign) is waived if you apply for it within 2 weeks of receiving Business License approval.

To obtain a sign permit, applicants need to submit an application with the requested drawings and appropriate fees to the Development Services Department at City Hall.

1) When do I need a permit?

Anytime you install new signage or awning on the exterior, you will be required a sign permit from the City.

2) Where can I find more information?

We have compiled a list of the most common questions and steps here on our website. There is always more information available on the website of your city or municipality. For Winnipeg, you can look at this link: Winnipeg Permits Portal

3) Do you take care of the permit process?
Absolutely. A small management fee is included in your quote for us to prepare the drawings, file the application, and follow up.
4) What’s an encroachment?
If your sign or awning goes over your property line, the city will charge you an encroachment fee. Your property survey certificate will be required if the city is unsure whether the sign encroaches.
5) How can I get an engineer's stamp on my plan?
In case an engineer stamp is required for your sign or awning, we work with our team of engineers. Engineer fees should be included in your quote.
6) Do I need an electrical permit?
To connect the power source to your illuminated sign, you will need a certified electrician. They will require an electrical permit in addition to your approved sign permit.
7) What happens if the Sign Permit is not approved?
We will try to find a solution to comply with the legislation based on the changes the City requires. If, however, the permit is not approved, then you will only be charged the applicable fees.
8) Can I apply for the permit?
Anyone can apply for a permit by following the City’s guidance on their website. For a small fee, we make the process simple.
9) Do I need my landlord’s approval?
Yes, we recommend getting your landlord’s approval before manufacturing the sign to ensure it complies with any technical guidelines of the property.
