A Digital Printing Network
I have done mostly garments with my printer/cutter up to this point, but have had quite a few requests for signage, etc. I am looking for blank, white coroplast sign material - my current client is wanting 10 pieces cut 24x36. Who do you use for this, and will the cut to sizes needed?
Thanks in advance!
I use http://www.harborsales.net, they're listed in the product index under plastic as corrugated plastic sheets. They have a variety of pre-cut sizes, colors, and even a few shapes. 24"x36" is one of their standard sizes, but if you ever need a size that they don't carry you just have to order a 4'x8' and they'll cut it to whatever sizes you need. They sell the stakes for them as well, listed under hardware & tools as step stakes. I usually get the 10"x30" SS1 step stakes, just make sure you order the 4mm or thicker Coroplast if you go with them, pretty sure they don't fit the 2mm sheets. Also, make sure the Coroplast you get has the flutes going in the right direction, i.e. if you're displaying that sign in a landscape orientation you want 24" flutes, if it's being displayed in a portrait orientation you want the 36" flutes.
grimco is a good source for coraplast and they have distribution warehouses nationwide
There are several good suppliers in New England-don't know where you are. I get 'discount' rates on orders of 10 full sheets or more, and delivery on their own trucks is an additional $10 per order. You can buy a coroplast 'knife' for cutting down the flutes fast, and once a year I found someone offering 'real estate' cut blanks (18 x 24) 50 in a case with 50 H frames for a ridiculous price-I usually stock up a couple of them to have on hand.
Use Rapid Tac II for your application fluid-lays the vinyl down like melted 'buddah'...and you can shape it by hand with a contractor's knife easily. Creative Banner Co. sells many different shapes (like golf balls with dimples already screened on) for golf tournaments, etc.
