How long can I use my corrugated plastic yard signs?
Corrugated Yard Signs are great for short-term outdoor use. With proper care of your custom printed Corrugated yard sign, they can last you many months.
Is corrugated plastic durable?
Corrugated Plastic signs are very durable. Coroplast uses a copolymer resin in order to increase impact and low temperature performance. Copolymer resins are also used because the retain the ability to be flexed an unlimited number of times without breaking. We call this unique ability "a living hinge".
I want to order a custom size yard sign?
Our corrugated boards are 96"x48", which gives us the freedom to product sizes, simply pick the next size up board from your final size and let us know in the comments section what the final size of the sign you would like. We'll confirm the custom size while in the proofing stage.
Can I custom cut or die cut my corrugated plastic yard sign?
Yes! We have top of the line cutting machinery, and we have the ability to do most custom die cut projects. Here's how you can set up the cutlines. Please contact us about your custom cut signs 888-319-8184 prior to placing the order.
Is the graphic mounted to the yard sign material?
No, we print directly to the Corrugated board material using high quality UV inks. Mounted prints are when the graphic is printed on a sheet of paper or vinyl then it's mounted onto the Corrugated Plastic material with an adhesive. In our experience printing direct to material produces just as high-quality results as custom board mounting.
Will my graphic peel away over time?
Since we print direct to material none of the graphic will peel off the board unlike mounted prints.
Can I make my yard signs double sided?
Yes, we can print on both sides of the corrugated plastic material. Choose double sided printing in the drop down.
