Post Top Signage Options: Choose the Right Option for You

Choosing the right signage options for your crowd control needs can be a daunting task. With various factors to consider, such as size, location, inserts, and the environment, making an informed decision is crucial. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore post-top signage options, helping you understand the choices available and the best times to use them.

What Are Post Top Signs?

Post top signs are valuable accessories for your queue management system. They work in conjunction with your existing setup, effortlessly fitting onto the top of stanchions to create informative and eye-catching displays. Our innovative construction is designed for quick and easy installation on any stanchion type, ensuring there’s always a suitable signage option for you.

1. Standard Post Top Frame: The Versatile Classic

The standard post top frame is commonly seen in queues across the USA. These signs can be easily placed on top of retractable belt barriers, securely displaying messages to your audience. Importantly, we offer options not just for belt barriers but also for classic rope stanchions. This means you can effortlessly attach a sign to the top of any stanchion for a secure and effective post-top display.

These signs specifically feature a frame that can hold either an acrylic sign insert either from our range of stock signs or a custom sign printed to your requirements. Alternatively a set of two clear acrylic sheets can be supplied, for use with paper signs. This makes replacing signs a breeze, as you can simply slide any paper sign or poster between the two acrylic sheets to replace the signage. Along with the easy customization of the signage within, we also offer the largest range of sign options on the market.

This extensive selection ensures you can choose a small sign to convey a specific message, a large sign to display posters, or anything in between. To enhance flexibility, we also offer horizontal or vertical orientation for all signage options, allowing you to accommodate various poster layouts and designs. With these options, our post-top signage not only boasts the highest quality on the market but also offers the widest variety of signage options on the market.

2. Bracket and Paper Signs: Flexibility Meets Effectiveness

The bracket and paper sign options are similar in setup to the standard sign frame range but come with some key differences. These options serve specific purposes, each with their advantages and disadvantages.

Bracket Signs for Acrylic Inserts:

Bracket signs are designed for use with acrylic signage. These customizable acrylic signage plates easily slot into the top of the bracket adapter, creating a sturdy setup suitable for areas with heavy foot traffic. The frameless design ensures that the acrylic sign takes center stage, making your message pop.

However, while bracket signs offer advantages in durability and in many cases visual impact, they have limitations in terms of customization. Unlike standard sign frames that allow you to slot in acrylic signage as well as paper signage, bracket signs require an acrylic insert to be used properly. This restricts your options when it comes to displaying different messages or promotions as you may need a new acrylic sign for each new promotion or message you would like to display.

Paper Signs for Printed Signage:

Paper signs, on the other hand, are specifically designed to hold paper or printed signage. These signs consist of two clear acrylic panels pressed together with a bracket. The printed sign is then placed between the acrylic panels to create a sign.

Paper Signs

While paper signs offer customization potential, they come with limitations. Typically, they can accommodate standard paper sizes, such as 8.5×11. If your needs go beyond what the paper sign can hold, it’s essential to consider other options like standard sign frames that can hold paper signage of multiple different sizes.


In conclusion, selecting the right post-top signage option involves considering your specific requirements and preferences. Standard post top frames offer versatility and a wide range of choices, while bracket and paper signs provide flexibility and customization options. Understanding your crowd control needs and the characteristics of each signage option will guide you toward making an informed decision.
