    What would you do for this monument for a subdivision? The dimensions are weird and it's clear no one thought to involve a sign company until AFTER everything was built. :(:(:(

    To me the columns are WAY too thick for the amount of sign area to work with.

    Any ideas?

    My first thought was a board in between the posts with dimensional letters on it.

    You mean the internet hasn't evolved enough to pull the pictures directly out of my brain?

    Fine, I'll post it. (See original post)

    what's that thing in the middle? uplighting?
    agreed, they went overkill with the masonry, I'd have at least made it a bit wider.... panel between the columns seems legit. right option, 1/2" PVC letters & add a border, call it a day.

    They grey ones look like tombstones.

    The tombstone is supposed to be dark mocha colored.. If I add a border the other one looks like a piece of toast...

    As a customer would probably say "I think the top needs a bit more pizazz. You know?" Maybe shape the top to be like a peak of a cottage.

    as suggested, shape the top to increase the size, a little more color to pop the sign...here's a quick rough idea

    aluminum framing skinned with max metal and raised dimensional lettering. Nothing you can do about the gigantic mini masonry
