    Default Free Coroplast signs

    I still haven't figured out what I'm doing about signs. Then, I had an idea the other day. There are signs everywhere right now. And Janet Pueschel and Tom Murry's signs are both coroplast. I'll be picking up several free signs later on today from the side of the road!

    You can repaint the coroplast, and most of the cardboard signs are invertable - remove the staples, turn them inside-out, and re-stable them. You have a clean white surface (sometimes gray) for a hand-letters sign.

    A perfectionist never delegates!

    Though you are right... But even then, I have to tell them what I want on it, where to put holes for lights, etc.

    I though we had seen full sheets of coro for sale in the $10 to $12 range ? Seems like by the time you eat up the gas and time for painting, you could just buy a sheet of black and make anything you want ?

    If you are looking for ideas with Coro, one of our members had a neat idea last year for "shooting star." He made 12" to 15" stars on coro, and attached them on a rope from the ground to your roof (or anywhere). Each star on a channel .. So you make as many as you have channels for .. Then you make them "shoot" and other patterns in your sequences.
    Thanks,

    In about 15 minutes, I grabbed 11 signs. If anyone needs one, holler. Or go get your own...

    I'm figuring some of that plastic spray paint will cover well enough. Will go get some early this week and give that a trial run. Then, let the drilling begin!

    Hey Scott,
    How did you end up covering your signs to make them usable?
