Looking to make a lasting impact with your advertising? Look no further than totem signs. These eye-catching structures, resembling tall columns, are perfect for grabbing attention from passing traffic. Most petrol stations have a totem sign and you’ve probably seen them around retail areas, roadsides, and entryways. Their sleek, oblong shape beautifully showcases your brand and services, making a powerful visual statement that demands to be noticed.

what are totem signs.

Totem signs, also known as monolith signs, are like billboards on steroids. With multiple panels, they offer ample space to share valuable information with your audience. You can divide them strategically, placing your branding at the top and highlighting key product details below. Passersby, whether on foot or in vehicles, can’t resist taking a closer look at what you have to offer.

when to use totem signs?

Totem signs are incredibly versatile, making them suitable for a wide range of industries. Hotels, restaurants, manufacturing companies, and even educational establishments have all harnessed their advertising power. Why not join them and unlock your business’s potential?

For the best results, totem signs should be in clear sight. The ground will require substantial preparation for a tall sign and we always recommend running an electrical cable to the installation. Electricity is required for the signage lighting at night.

the benefits of totem signs?

Now, let’s talk about the benefits of totem signs. Trust me, there are plenty to get excited about:


  • They’re visually stunning: Totem signs tap into the timeless beauty and elegance of ancient totems and monoliths. There’s something inherently captivating about a towering geometric structure rising from the ground. Not only will totem signs promote your products and services, but they’ll also add a touch of aesthetic appeal to your surroundings.
  • They’re flexible: Need to raise brand awareness? Want to offer exclusive deals to passersby? Totem signs can handle it all. Their versatility makes them an ideal choice for various advertising purposes.
  • They’re double-sided: Unlike many other types of outdoor advertising, totem signs are double-sided. This means you can position them to face oncoming traffic, maximizing visibility whether you’re situated on a bustling thoroughfare or by the roadside.
  • They’re impossible to miss: While regular signage may suffice for businesses directly facing busy streets, most establishments are set back a bit. But fret not! Totem signs are here to save the day. With their bold colors, large size, and occasional illumination, they demand attention and make it impossible for people to look away.
  • They’re built to last: Outdoor signage needs to withstand the elements and potential mischief. That’s why we take pride in crafting our totem signs using only the highest quality materials. When you invest in our totem signs, you’re investing in long-lasting durability.
