Substrate materials – signage is available on a choice of substrates to suit every purpose:
  • COREX is a light weight, water resistant type of plastic with a honeycomb structure. Corex signs last about six months and are ideal for inexpensive temporary outdoor signage such as property development signs, estate agent signs, political campaign signs, charity fundraising and special events signs
  • FOAMEX is a flexible material which comes in various thicknesses (1mm, 3mm, 5mm or 10mm). It can be used as a backing for signage instead of a frame. Graphics can also be printed directly onto foamex. The main advantage of Foamex is its durability. Foamex signs last up to a year outdoors and up to 10 years indoors
  • ALUMINIUM sheets of 3mm thickness are used as a backing for self adhesive vinyl graphics and lettering. They can be laminated for improved weather resistance.
  • DIBOND is a relatively lightweight yet aluminium composite material consisting of a polyethylene core covered on both sides with aluminium sheets
  • VINYL is used for weather resistant banners and signs. Vinyl graphics and lettering are another option for window displays and customising vehicles with company livery.
