Sign Materials



Coroplast is a corrugated (slightly ridged) plastic. It is very lightweight, due to the hollow structure. It is waterproof and resilient. The lifespan is about 1-2 years. Great for temporary outside signs.


Foamcore is a lightweight material that is easily cut, but also easily dented. It has a clay-coated paper on the outside, with a polystyrene foam in the middle. This material is not waterproof. Unlike the slightly ridged coroplast, it has a flat surface. The lifespan is about 3-5 years. Great for indoor displays.


Styrene is a very versatile sign material. It is lightweight and an extremely durable white plastic. The 3mm thick styrene can be rolled and will spring back to flat without breaking. It has a flat surface. The lifespan is about 3-5 years. Great for short term outside use and indoor displays in high traffic areas.

Aluminum Composite

Aluminum Composite is made from three layers – two thin aluminum sheets bonded to a dense plastic (polyethylene) core. This allows for excellent strength, durability, flexibility, at minimal weight. The lifespan is longer than 7 years. The image will fade long before the composite deteriorates. Great for long term outside signs.


Plexiglass is a strong, transparent thermoplastic. It is a lightweight, flexible and shatter-resistant alternative to glass. It scratches easier than glass, but scratch marks can be easily removed with polishing or heating the material.

Sign White

Sign White is a semi-translucent, milky-white hard acrylic. When light is shone from behind, the printed graphics on it show up in brilliant colour, night or day. Great for indoor and outdoor use.
