    Default Looking for Coroplast

    Does anybody know where I can get some Coroplast.

    Was it John, at the mini, that had the wire frame demonstration. I think he is from Tennessee. Right?

    BTW, I live in High Point and travel to Statesville every day.

    How Much are you looking for?

    After Elections You can pick some from used political signs.

    Also sign shop can get you some.

    I has have access to a vendor in South Carolina that can get me whole sheet but I need to order at least 20 sheets.

    Maybe a couple sheets would be good.

    Jane and I want to start experimenting with making wire frames this summer.

    I was thinking about making something similar to John's light bulbs... The ones he brought to the mini.

    I was also thinking about making my own 3-D boxes... kind of like gift boxes.

    Do you know the name of a sign shop around here?

    Depending on how much you need you could get it from these people
    http://corrugatedplastics.net/Corrug...ticSheets.html

    They have an shop in Raleigh and Charlotte. Cheap too.

    I bought some coroplast at a sign shop last year. It was pricey but saved me from driving across town at $4 a gallon for diesel.

    Man, I wish we had one of those stores here in Chattanooga. The sign shops were kinda pricey and didn't really want to sell just the plain coro.

    Hmm, they have one in Knoxville, I'll be up there for a couple days of meetings in mid July. Maybe I'll have time to run buy there before I come back home.

    Brian, the color I used for the 24 bulbs was purchased as white. Used Krylon for plastic spray paint. Don't hesitate to PM or email me if you have wireframe building questions, I'll try to answer any of them I can.

    Thier is a place of HArris road in Charlotte NC that will seal you 4 by 8 sheets for about $10 a sheet but you need a $100 min order I think.

    I know this is an old thread, but if anyone is still looking, I have 6-8 sheets I don't need. Just let me know.

    I don't know Don. A guy at the sign shop told me about this place. I don't use coroplastic very much. Here is the phone number.

    Unfortunately there's a message on their Locations tab that says local pickups are only allowed at their New Jersey location.

    They used to allow it or at least when I was told year before last. I was told by the sign company that I could drive down and get them at the dock.

    My local Lowe's Building Supply carries smaller pieces in the sign/lettering area, in white. I don't remember how much it was.

    I fully intend to clean my local neighborhood of political signs when I'm legally allowed to. My Lions Club has even used the cardboard ones; they pull apart and will work inside out, giving you a white area. But then, they're only good for one fund raiser that way.
