Outdoor Sign Showcase: How To Build “On Premise Billboards” On A Budget

Discover what signs you can use to create the effect of an on-premise billboard on your Bakersfield–Delano Area property without going over your signage budget.

What’s An “On Premise Billboard”?

Billboards can be a great way to advertise a business or product. Located in the right place, billboards can generate thousands of impressions every day and can offer a good return on your investment. Unfortunately, they do require significant investment, though. Renting billboard space is often expensive and requires recurring payments to keep your ad on the billboard.

Wouldn’t it be great if you can just install your own billboard on your own business’s property?

You could advertise your business to passersby while identifying it for anybody looking for you. But billboards are quite big and expensive. If only there were similar outdoor signs you could use to create a similar effect. Well, actually, there are.

What Are Post-And-Panel Signs?

A post and panel sign is a popular outdoor sign that consists of a sign panel held in place by one or two posts. The panel might be held up by two posts or one post and an arm. A post-and-panel sign can be any size you need it to be and can display any logo, text, or graphics you wish.

You can use a post-and-panel sign to identify your Kern County business, to brand outdoor areas, to advertise products or services, or to display wayfinding information. While it would deviate from the billboard look, you might consider hanging the sign panel from the crossbar or arm of the sign with cable, chain, wire, or rope. This allows the sign panel to swing gently in the breeze, and this movement can generate more impressions.

What Is A Monument Sign?

A monument sign is a large, freestanding outdoor sign. They are typically located near the road or highway so drivers can easily identify a business without having to see the actual building of the business. Monument sign panels can be made of wood, brick, stone, plastic, or metal.

What Is A Pole Sign?

A pole sign is a large, freestanding outdoor sign similar to a monument sign. The biggest difference is that pole signs feature a sign panel high up on a pole, whereas monument signs tend to be lower to the ground. A pole sign is probably the conventional outdoor sign that most resembles a billboard.

Excellent service and quality :) Trinh was awesome to work with. Their expertise and creativity brought my vision for the in-office sign to life. I started with a small project to swap out the name of the previous owner on the roadside monument, which resulted in a clean and visible result. They listened and considered all my ideas and helpfully steered me in the right direction to get both an optimal and personal result. Patents and staff alike have complimented TM's work and I would recommend their team for anyone looking for a quality and thoughtful outcome.

Hats off to Trinh and her team. We needed new signage on quite a few of our office doors. Other companies we checked in with were not able to come out until the following week of our request, Trinh showed up within an hour to measure for what we needed. The work was performed within a few days perfectly! We would highly recommend giving this company an opportunity to earn your business. They did ours this time and future times to come.

When the best man at my wedding was unable to make it last minute, Bakersfield Signs and Graphics came to the rescue. They custom made a cardboard cutout of the best man. It was a huge hit at my wedding and everyone loved it! They made it so fast and it looked exactly like the other groomsmen. I couldn't believe how well it turned out. Thank you so much for bringing some much needed laughs and fun during times like these.

BSG did a fantastic job re-designing the Yard Sign logo for ICO Gardening. The original picture was old and couldn't be used due to low resolution. They had to create a new one to the exact picture. They were quick and efficient in competing my order.
