How to Choose Mounting Solutions for your Interpretive, Wayfinding or Decorative Sign Projects
Whether you’re a reseller, a fabricator, or you’ve created a sign yourself, it’s important you select the right mounting solution to showcase your project. Even the best signs can go unnoticed if they’re not properly installed.
The problem is, a lot of people waste time and money purchasing overly complicated, heavy, and outdated installation kits that don’t even do their sign justice. In this blog, we’ll discuss what to look for when purchasing a long-term mounting solution and how the right mount is both crucial to your display’s budget and to your overall ROI.
The primary goal of a sign mounting solution
No matter how you use your sign (interpretive, wayfinding, or part of a wall mural), it has an important job—to communicate a message to your visitors. With this in mind, your primary goal should be to find a solution that’s capable of supporting your sign’s message. Whether you employ a standard mount or a custom solution, all of your decisions should be based on this simple question: Does this solution support my sign’s message?
Easy, affordable, and standard mounting solutions
Now that we’ve established this first priority, let’s take a closer look at standard mounting solutions. Here are the top three traits you should look for when purchasing a permanent mounting solution:
Durability: If you’re searching for long-term value, it’s critical you select a mount that boasts strong durability. For example, powder-coated aluminum is incredibly tough! It doesn’t chip or rust, and it’s easy to clean and maintain. The best part is, it’s cost-efficient, comes in different colors, and it’s easy to install!
Simplicity: Second to durability, you need a solution that’s simple! The last thing your team needs is overcomplicated hardware that’s prone to difficult installs. Don’t get caught up on too many bells and whistles. Remember, your mount should support your sign and its message, not take attention away from it!
Compliance: Last but not least, your mounting solution should meet all required state and federal regulations. If you’re not familiar with these, make sure you work with a sign company that is. Compliance is key!
With these traits in mind, you’ll also need to decide on the following preferences:
Finish: Choose a color that enhances and compliments your sign.
Installation type: In-ground or surface-mounted, railing and wall mounts
If this last step has you feeling overwhelmed, the right professional sign company can walk you through the process and provide you with project-specific literature to help inform your decision.
Custom sign mounting solutions
You may be reading all of this and thinking to yourself, “That info is great for regular projects, but mine is complex. I need a custom solution.” Don’t worry! From decorative areas to intricate exhibits, the basic principles above apply to custom solutions as well!
The key to creating custom mounts is working with a company that’s aligned with your same goals. When in doubt, ask yourself the question, “Does this mounting solution support my sign’s message?” Never compromise the integrity of your sign – that only leads to increased cost and headache down the road.

The right mount improves your ROI
When you display the right sign with the right mount, it boosts your return on investment!
If you’ve invested money into creating a durable signage but you display it with a cheap, or insufficient sign mount, it jeopardizes the life of your sign and compromises your message, brand, and visitor experience. Instead, work with a sign company to find the perfect sign mount for your project – one that strikes the right balance between durability, simplicity and compliance.
