    Screws in plastic anchors.

    Either:
    1. Construction adhesive (available in caulk tubes from Lowes/Home Depot/Ace, etc) or,

    2. Masonry anchors (and you’ll need the proper masonry drill bit) and lag bolts (also available from your favorite hardware store)

    You need to place anchors in the wall where you plan to hang the sign.
    It doesn’t matter how big or small your sign is, you always want to anchor the load points of the sign into the wall.
    Your local hardware store may be able to help you with the different options you have in the different types of walls with different load amounts for you.
    Sorry if that confused you more. Just remember the beging of the answer.

    the best way to hang anything on a brick wall is to drill small holes in the wall and then put wall anchors in. These will give you something solid in the wall in which to put screws. You’ll need a concrete or masonry drill bit, a drill and a screwdriver, and the screw and anchors that you’ll be putting in the wall.
    The anchors come in all sizes, with matching screws- the length, thickness, and strength will depend on the size and weight of your sign. See attached site for pics of assorted anchors.

    Sorry guys above me, I’m too lazy to go to all of that work. I hung the metal sign on a brick wall with Locktite. Simply smear enough on the back to hold up the sign, place it on the bricks making certain there is contact with the bricks, (not the mortar) with the adhesive, hold for a second or two, and viola the sign sticks. Mine has been up for a couple of years through all kinds of weather and even kids trying to pry it off, still holding…

    Get some of that expanding foam insulation. It’s sticky as heck and will hold the sign on very nicely. Don’t use too much, or it will come out the edges.

    If you need to take it off, then a wire brush will clean up the area. No holes!!

    Wow. Everyone has some great ideas. The masonry anchors that you choose must be strong enough. Make sure you do your research. The company I work for, Mc-Graw Hill, has top quality solutions for the hardest jobs. I hope this information is helpful to you.
