    I have an customer who wants me to produce 2ea of 4 signs printed on 2 sides that will hang from their ceiling. They will have to have the hardware to attached to the drop ceiling. the signs will be 48"X24". I would like suggestions on what substrate would be best and what supplier can do this for me.

    and do you need a supplier for the material or you need them to do the entire job?

    which one would be less likely to bow or warp?
    I need somebody to do the entire job.

    I'd use Ultraboard for this all day long, won't warp and is lightweight. PM me if you're interested and ill get you a quote.

    We do a lot of this type of work and use both gatorfoam (mostly 1/2 & 3/4") and Pvc, at least 1/4".

    Gator would look slightly nicer, Ultra would be more durable in humidity (bow and warp). 1/2" should be fine.
    Could also stick it on flat coroplast for economy and lightness.
