Post and Panel: The Versatile Solution

post and panel signageThese versatile signs come in many shapes and sizes and can be constructed from a variety of materials.

They can be used for short term when built from MDO board (processed wood) or long term when printed onto aluminum or aluminum composite.

You can see these signs both horizontal and vertical, and you can add decorative trim to dress them up. Routed faces add interest and dimension.

Generally these signs are not illuminated, but can be illuminated with exterior lighting.

Below are some examples of post and panels and their uses:

Business Identification

These signs can be single or double sided. The top and bottom frame secure the face and give a finished look to the sign. The aluminum can be custom painted to match your building or the colors in your logo.
