    sign board suppliers please

    Hi All, can anyone suggest a supplier for signboard. Just a generic white board for making signs with vinyl, as in the pic. A4 size or simmilar. Or a larger board that can be cut to size/ Ive seen the foamboard and the board with corrugation between 2 thin sheets of plastic. so something along those lines. What do people use, and what do you reccomend, and where to buy?

    Thanks in advance.

    Chris P

    MDP supplies are good and reliable.
    Always use correx for outdoors. Foam board doesn't behave well in the sun.

    You want ACM Aluminium Composite Material for long term outdoor use.

    Correx is great for short term use but a little wind and it’s bent and looks awful so if it’s going outside for any length of time I use alu composite panels also.

    mdp sell these cut to size and pretty cheap too.
    i used to cut them myself but the time and hassle of smoothing the edges it’s just easier to get them made to size.

    When using correx it you need to find out how the customer is mounting the sign and orientate the flutes accordingly. If mounting as a 'T' sign then the flutes need to be horizontal, if mounting from the bottom then vertical flutes. If the sign bends in the wind then it is because the signmaker hasn't asked the right questions, or more likely just used what he has in the workshop. Properly mounted and orientated correx will last for more than a year.
    Mounted flat they will last for years. I have one mounted to the front of my workshop that has been insitu for 4 years.

    Most tradesman want correx for cost and simplicity of mounting, and for public liability reasons. If correx blows off in the wind it will do less damage than composite.
