Stone Monolith Signs – Boost Your Business’ Kerb Appeal


As a business owner, you know that first impressions are everything.

The moment a potential customer lays eyes on your business, they start forming an opinion about it.

That’s why it’s important to have both external and internal business signage throughout your premises that not only catches their attention but also reflects your brand’s personality and values.

And what better way to do that than with a bespoke stone monolith sign?

What is a Stone Monolith Sign?

A stone monolith sign is a large, single-piece stone sign that is typically placed at the entrance of a business or property – though they can be used as unique signage, focal points of interest, or as memorial monuments in many different ways.

They can be crafted from a variety of natural stones, such as granite, sandstone, limestone, slate, or marble, and can be customised to fit any design or style.

They are also often referred to as stone boulder signs, especially when they are made in the form of a large natural stone boulder.

Why Choose a Stone Monolith Sign?

There are several reasons why a stone monolith sign is a great investment for your business.

Here are a just few:


Stone is one of the most durable materials on earth, making it an excellent choice for an outdoor sign. It can withstand extreme weather conditions, such as high winds, heavy rain, glaring hot sunlight, or freezing ice and snow.


Unlike other types of signs that may need to be replaced every few years, a stone monolith sign can last for decades with proper maintenance.


Stone monolith signs can be customised to fit your specific needs and preferences. You can choose the stone material, size, shape, and font that best represents your brand. You can also choose to have specific features incorporated into the design – we’ve been known to craft a bird bath, interactive rubbings, and intricate illustrative imagery into stone!

Kerb Appeal

Boulder signs are environmentally friendly as they use natural materials and require less energy to manufacture. This makes them a sustainable and responsible choice for businesses that want to reduce their carbon footprint.

How to Design a Stone Monolith Sign

Designing a stone monolith sign requires careful consideration of several factors.

Here are some important things our skilled stone monolith sign designers keep in mind during the design process:


The size of your sign should be proportional to the size of your property and the distance from the road. It should be large enough to be visible from a distance but not so large that it overwhelms the surrounding landscape.


Stone monolith signs are typically rectangular, square, or curved. The shape should complement the architecture of your building and the style of your brand – stone monolith signs are impressive when they seamlessly blend in with their surroundings, but certainly not so well that they go unnoticed!


Stone comes in a variety of natural colours and tones, from white to black and everything in between. The colour or tone should be chosen based on the look and feel you want to convey and again goes back to blending in well with the surrounding environment.


The font you choose should be easy to read from a distance and should match the style of your brand. Avoid using difficult to read cursive or overly decorative fonts – unless white enamel paint or stunning gold leaf lettering is chosen to help it truly stand out.

Maintenance of a Stone Monolith Sign

A stone monolith sign fortunately requires very little maintenance, but to ensure that it remains in its best presented condition for many years, there is some simple cleaning procedures you can carry out from time to time.

Here are some tips:

  • Clean the sign regularly using a soft brush and mild soap.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or high-pressure sprays, as they can damage the stone.
  • Check for cracks or chips and repair them promptly to prevent further damage.
  • Consider sealing the stone periodically to protect it from moisture and stains.
