Brackets for post mounted signs

I’ve used this method for most of my post-mounted signs over the years. It’s an aluminum bracket that is bolted to the edge of the sign face then into the post. The sign face looks like it’s floating between the posts. I hope others might find it useful.

The hangers are made from 2-by-1/4in. square shoulder aluminum flat stock welded as shown. Cut the aluminum rather than shearing it, so that you get nice square corners for a better fit. After the mounting holes are drilled in each side, I paint them black. The length of the bracket depends on the height of the sign panel.
