Tens of thousands of these signs are used throughout the commercial world. They are very good value in price, versatile, durable and suitable for almost any size. Best suited for single sided use. Posts are mounted behind the panel on plate and post rather than either side.

Why Choose Plate and Post?

Plate and post signs are extensively used in the commercial world as they offer durability, versatility and great value for money.

The Plate and Post panel is made from 3mm aluminium, which is sign written in full colour on one side. The aluminium panel comes in 24 standard colours, however we can also powder coat it in any RAL colour to replicate your company’s branding. Aluminium will not rust, rot or corrode, so once installed it will continue to look great for years to come with no maintenance.

The panel can be cut to almost any size or shape and posts are attached to the rear, with visible fixings. Plate and post is a cost effective solution for signs but if you need both sides printing or a more aesthetically pleasing reverse side, sleeved signs are more suitable.

If you are preparing a sign for a multi-occupancy site within a tight budget, Plate and Post panels can be divided into sections to make it easier to make changes without needing to replace the entire sign.

Impact Signs have installed many plate and post signs on industrial estates, at the entrance to large commercial premises and in car parks. We use a loading programme to accurately calculate the thickness of post and depth of hole required prior to providing a full installation service.

Care of your new rigid letters

Congratulations, you have just bought ‘the best’. Impact Signs use ‘new generation’ materials for all of their fascia signs. Everything that we use is…

  • UV stable (fade resistant).
  • Waterproof.
  • Rot proof
  • Virtually maintenance free.
  • All you have to do is clean with soapy water and a sponge as required. That’s it!
If you wish to remove the sign writing (vinyl only) at any stage, this is relatively easy to do, just use the following guidelines:
  • Use heat! Vinyl can be removed easier when it is warm. A hair dryer is the best tool for the job. Caution! Do not use hot air guns, these may burn the fascia!
  • To remove the glue residue use white spirit. Let it soak in for approx 2 minutes first, glue should then be easy to use.
  • Do not use a knife to remove vinyl, a plastic knife is best, or ask us for a squeegee. The following are only available for our Plate & Post systems.


Impact Sign Solutions really listened to what we needed and gave some great friendly guidance, the end result was a top quality job which reflects really well on our business
