Gopher Sign Company manufactures a wide variety of custom displays and exhibit bases designed to protect and present your signs in an attractive manner. They are designed and constructed with a focus on security, durability, ease of installation, and professional appearance. Our exhibit bases feature an aluminum construction for optimal corrosion resistance. The custom frame extrusion profile protects your sign panel and allows double-sided printing. Tamper-resistant stainless steel hardware is used wherever possible to protect the signs and bases from corrosion, theft, and vandalism. Finally, each base is powder coated to provide maximum weather resistance and provide a long-lasting aesthetic appearance. Custom base configurations are available upon request.

In addition to the featured displays and exhibit bases, we offer a variety of mounting methods and configurations including Z-clips, stainless steel threaded studs on the back of the signs, VHB tape, Sign Track extrusion channels, countersunk holes, custom brackets and more.
