    Need more info.
    Single/double side
    Thickness
    Panel shape

    I almost always give HDU some kind of support/stiffener

    If single sided, run stringers behind the sign and fasten to that. If double sided, you should've decided this before you made it. If it is double sided, I would suggest some aluminum angle, painted to match, and then fasten through the sign with a bolt and nut.

    Do not just run lags through the posts into the sign, HDU will not hold if your trying to thread into it.

    From what I am seeing, you have a sign that is 2' tall x 4' wide, and one that is 3' tall x 4' tall, one stacked on top of another, between (2) 4 x 4's...
    I personally would fabricate a rectagular tubing mount to mount the signs to. If your thinking wood 1x4's, I wouldn't trust that. too much warping from some thin material...
