Totem Signs & Monolith Signs

Lavastar take a three-pronged approach as the best designers, manufactures and installers of stunning bespoke totem pole signs and monoliths across London and the rest of the UK.

Totem sign systems originated way back in 1810 and remain a ubiquitous feature among all industrial areas. A popular style of vertical signage, a totem pole monolith sign is a great way to turn a passer-by into a customer, showcasing information about your business in a bite-sized, eye-catching way.

What Are Totem Signs And Monolith Signs?

There’s no better way to draw attention to your business than with a monolith pole sign. A large space for business advertising, totem signage is typically emblazoned with logos and branding, allowing you to direct customers to your store. Also known as pillar signs, these innovative designs can be surveyed, designed, printed and installed by our in-house totem pole sign team.

Monolith totem pole systems are freestanding and far-reaching in their scope, offering maximum potential for eyes to be drawn on your business. An aluminium totem sign is the ideal promotional tool for physical shops. These signage system designs are typically illuminated with an integrated LED screen for added exposure in periods of low light.

If you like what you see and think totem signage or monoliths may be the visual solution you’ve been searching for, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch and our expert team will be on hand to answer all your queries.
