Printed Sign Boards:
If you are looking for sign boards for your business we can handle your requirements.
We are able to supply printed Correx, Foamex or Dibond, which can be supplied in any size up to 2.4m x 1.2m (approximately 4ft x 8ft) in one piece. If you need to cover a larger area we can print across multiple boards enabling them to be tiles.
Printed boards can be supplied to your exact size requirement and can also be cut to shape if required.
The boards are extremely durable on their own, but we can also finish with a standard matt or gloss laminate or an ant-graffiti laminate (available on Foamex and Dibond only).

Correx board is a plastic material that resembles corrugated cardboard. You may hear it referred to as corrugated plastic, flute board, fluted polypropylene, or fluted plastic. It’s a common choice for its economical price. The material is flexible, durable, recyclable, crack-resistant, and water-resistant. It is light and easy to transport, and it’s simple to display. These signs are well suited to indoor or outdoor uses. You’ll see corrugated plastic used for outdoor signs, bollard covers, promotional signs, trade shows, estate agent signs, and directional signage. Typically it is used where the sign is not intended to have a long lifespan and it is not as durable as Foamex or Dibond.
You might hear Foamex referred to as PVC or foam sheet. It’s a lightweight, flexible, yet durable material that can also cut to shape but is more solid than Correx. It can be used indoors or outdoors and as it is lightweight it can easily be installed with adhesive or strong double-sided tape, but is also durable enough to be screwed through.
It is M1/B1 fire-rated to comply with UK and European fire safety standards.
We can supply either 3mm or 5mm Foamex which is useful in a range of applications. Some include fascia signs, wall signs, hoarding panels, site boards, directional signs, internal displays, trade shows, exhibitions, artwork, displays, hanging signs, and building or storefront signs.
As with any foam-based products, please bear in mind that there is a possibility of expansion in hot conditions and direct sunlight. If there is no room for expansion (for example if it is fitted into a frame) it could cause the board to warp. The standard product tolerance is an expansion of 5mm per linear metre.
For signs that need to be a little more durable, Dibond is a smart choice. It’s also referred to as aluminum composite panel (ACP) or ‘sandwich panel’. Dibond uses a polyethylene plastic inside encased in aluminum outside, making it a lightweight, strong, rigid material that stays flat. Suitable for use indoors and out this type of sign is often used in hoarding panels, POS/POP displays, trade show booths, gallery or museum signage, large format, fascia signs, directional signs, hanging signs, and building or shopfront signs.
