Printed Correx Board
Correx and Proplex are brand names for fluted polypropylene sheets, sometimes referred to as corrugated plastic sheets. These lightweight fluted boards are most commonly seen as branded estate agent boards and railing signs. Printed corrugated are a favourite on construction sites as they are fully waterproof and can be easily cable tied onto railings or drilled into walls. Because Correx is the cheapest of the printed sign boards, they are popular for use as temporary outdoor signs and trade signs (builder’s signs, scaffolders’ signs, roofer signs etc). Fluted polypropylene board is a versatile substrate which can be used for flat outdoor advertising signs. These cheap signs can also be cut to shape to make interesting bespoke signs. They can be fixed by drilling, nailing, riveting or Velcro (hook and loop). The normal maximum size for Correx boards is a full sheet of 8’ x 4’ (2400mm x 1200mm) and as well as durable outdoor signs, Correx sheets can also be part cut and creased for constructing into 3 dimensional shapes for printed bollard covers, wet floor signs, printed boxes etc.
Printed Foamex Boards
Foamex and Foamalite are brand names for expanded foam PVC board. These strong, rigid sign boards can be used inside and outside and are commonly used for wall signs, railing signs, workmen’s signs, safety signs and shop fascia signs. Branded Foamex boards can be used inside as well as outside. We recommend laminating for any long term outdoor signage. This will protect the print from scratches. Printed foamboard can be cut to shape to your requirements. Branded Foamex is a highly versatile substrate from which we have also produced smaller items such as shaped beer pump clip voting paddles and selfie frames. Your Foamex advertising signs can be drilled, stuck, riveted or attached with Velcro. The normal size of a full sheet of Foamex is 8’ x 4’ (2400mm x 1200mm) but multiple printed advertising boards can be fixed side by side to create a large rigid sign for instance a printed billboard or shop sign. We can supply 5mm Foamex and 3mm Foamex and even double-sided Foamex panels. We can also add special finish vinyl cut lettering or acrylic sign letters to your rigid plastic shop sign. For instance, metallic silver letters or metallic gold letters or other specialist vinyl.
Printed Metal Dibond Boards
Dibond and Dilite are brand names for aluminium composite board, sometimes referred to as sandwich panel. Our 3mm Dibond sheets make perfect heavy duty signs for billboards, shop fascia signs and swing signs. This recyclable sign board is the more durable than Correx and Foamex. It can be drilled and it can also be cut to a bespoke shape to match in with your logo. We recommend laminating for any long term outdoor signage. This will protect the print from scratches. We also offer an option for anti-graffiti laminate. The normal size of a full sheet of Dibond is 8’ x 4’ (2400mm x 1200mm) but multiple printed advertising boards can be fixed side by side to create a large rigid sign such as a large printed wall sign or metal shop sign. We can also add special finish vinyl cut lettering or acrylic sign letters to your metal shop sign. For instance, metallic silver letters or metallic gold letters or other specialist vinyl. Also, you may be interested in our foam-centred board for indoor displays. Not to be confused with foamboard (Foamex board), it is a 5mm thick, very lightweight mounting board which you can cut it with a scalpel.
