    ....I have a town that won't let us sink poles in parking lots.
    I need some upscale post options for 18" x 12" signs.
    Anything available?
    Thank you

    i don't think it's upscale, but pg 81 in the april 08 grimco catalog.....the "post mounting base" might work for you....

    2nd the post mounting base... they use them down at the Phillies ballpark parking lot for handicap and reserved spaces. not sure if they will next year as a bunch of people ripped the sign & poles off the bases and were walking around with them at the parade this past Friday. they were waving them around. i'm trying to google what they looked like. the pole and base were nice looking.

    Are you sure Grimco doesn't have an online catalog, I was on it a few times. You have to call your local office and get a pass code to get on there site.

    any of those bases would work good
    but would they be stolen in this upscale area?

    I made some by buying cheap big plastic planters that had a nice shape,
    pouring with colored concrete and setting a 2"x2" square tube post in them.

    Not sure if it is appropriate for the location, but using a more permanent planter, setting concrete in the bottom portion and incorporating planting material could be really nice.

    Than again, it's almost winter up there.

    the concrete planter idea sounds good
    alot harder for someone to walk off with

    I second the planter idea. We did a couple- like that once, but left enough space above the concrete so the customer could fill it with soil and plant plants in it. They looked really nice and there was no walking off with them...
