Pan Face
Flex Face

Charleston Sign Manufacturing offers a wide range of sign panels in both aluminum and high impact plastic substrates. In addition to these, they also provide pan face configurations, which are designed to create a more substantial, three-dimensional image.
These pan face signs are vacuum-formed to a depth of approximately 2″, giving them a striking appearance that will make your graphic message stand out. They are an affordable option for both illuminated and non-illuminated signs. You can choose from second surface vinyl, back sprayed embossed lettering, or first surface applications to customize your pan face sign.
These panels can be easily integrated into Charleston Sign Manufacturing’s line of architectural signage extrusions, ensuring a professional finish.

Charleston Sign Manufacturing also offers a complete line of flexible face panels, which are designed to help your graphics be more visible. These panels are designed primarily for use with the Series 1200 framing system and are perfect for large commercial applications.
The tensioning systems and choice of fabric covers are thoughtfully designed to make these panels durable and visually appealing no matter the application.

System Features & Design
The beauty of GPP-CI architectural signage systems are their inherent versatility. Utilizing modular components, the systems can be adapted to virtually any signage application ranging from monolithic designs to interior wall-mounted directories. The GPP-CI systems offer design integrity, aesthetic quality and remarkable economy.

GPP-Charleston Industries maintains a complete in-house paint facility. As a result, we are able to offer single source responsibility and a high level of quality control. In addition, our color matching capabilities are without equal. We take pride in providing full color matching services, usually in a week or less.

Our standard paint finish is an acrylic polyurethane, the most recognized coating for quality, brilliance and longevity in architectural signage systems. 6063 T5 aluminum extrusions are mechanically pre-treated, primed and electrostatically painted.

The finish is then baked on in an oven-accelerated air-dry system. The resulting hard, slick surface makes it impact resistant and able to withstand exposure to most solvents and chemicals as well as heavy traffic or abuse. In addition, the finish maintains

its "just painted" look years after exposure to sun, salt, and corrosive industrial environments.

Beyond our standard acrylic paint finish, GPP-CI can also provide anodized, Kynar 500® or other premium coatings as required. Please call us directly with your inquiries.

All posts and frames are manufactured from heavy duty 6063 T5 aluminum extrusions produced to Aluminum Association standards. Standard sign panels are supplied in .063 to .125 aluminum. Acrylic, fiber glass, Lumasite® or polycarbonate panels may also be specified.

There are a number of ways for a sign to effectively convey the proper graphic image. GPP-Charleston Industries employs state of the art graphics equipment and technology. This allows the architect/specifier the freedom to choose from a number of processes for producing a graphic image. Some of the processes used by GPP-CI include:

  • Applied vinyl copy
  • Precision routed copy
  • Push-through copy
  • Frisketed copy
  • Back sprayed copy
  • Routed dimensional letters
  • Digital print


Our graphics capabilities allow us to offer a variety of options such as logo reproduction, corporate identity programs and sitewide uniformity of graphics.
