A suggestion for a simple stand you can make small or large to fit signs, for table top simple, only slightly more complicated for free standing stand.
Made from 1x 1 1/2 stock you can get anywhere. No fancy joint for the base pieces, just make sure they are square to the vertical part (speed square) and screw and/or glue, or peg through the wide side.
Drill quarter inch holes (or 9/32nds for an easier fit) in the top of the base.
To display more than one sign, make the base much wider, then add another set of horizontals up higher, with holes for 1/4 pegs to hold the edge of the sign. Put in 2 to 4 holes about 3/4 inch apart so you can set the sign at the best display angle. Oversize hole makes it easier to insert pegs.
Use tape for a hinge if you want to make it fast and easy, small hinges if you want, but unnecessary. Quick, easy, light weight. Paint same color as your L shelf, voila. Done. Set the two legs at a 45 degree angle for use. Fold flat for transport and compact storage.
You could cut it out of ply, but easier to make with the suggested boards. Pine will do. Coarse finish just needs sanding before painting.
The wooden one would take more time and work.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
