Somewhat depends on whether there is a frame on the rear, how rigid they are, etc. If a frame, just cut some 2" small wood blocks, pre-drill, and screw them into the 4 corners of the panel.

If rigid but no frame, you can screw a couple of blocks into the wall around the middle of the panel and just let the panel lean on them - assuming you are hanging them from a wire.

I use the cardboard containers that are used to group 4 six packs of beer or 24 cans of pop. I have small ones from Science Diet pet food at about 1.5 inches to the Monster energy drink ones at 3.25 inches. My panels are mounted with a single picture wire across the back making inserting and removing the cardboard easy.
