S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • October 2019 • 17 Popular Options Metalcraft Industries' deluxe scroll bracket with a twisted shaft arm is another popular option for sign displays. Company owner Kevin Liles developed the signature bracket with a twisted shaft to give the look of a traditional wrought iron bracket that also is substantial and durable. It is handcrafted from a twisted tubular steel shaft and adorned with scroll ironwork. "It is a signature look," Schlegel says. "It goes with old-world architecture."

"It's a nice routed, shaped piece of alu- minum," Schlegel says. "It has ears off the side of it. Poles are slotted to the thick- ness of the ears. You drop it into the pole."
