    Hello
    My name is Randy
    I am a retired contractor and now run a custom picture frame shop.
    I am interested in learning more about the sign business so I will be lurking
    and searching and reading for a while before I ask too many questions.
    One question I do have now is where to buy coroplast or other brand polyflute wholesale in central North Carolina. I use this in my picture framing business too and would like to find a good source (4x8 sheets preferred) .
    Thanks
    Randy

    Any plastic sheet or sign supply distributor listed in your local yellow pages will have it. It's very popular.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.
    I have found a supplier in Apex that is not too far from me with better prices than I was getting for the coroplast.
    I have a homemade cnc router that I occasionally cut signs and name plaques with and a cmc mat cutter that will also cut vinyl and magnet. I cut refrigerator mats and lettermats and such now and thought I might try to expand a little into the sign making.

    Welcome from Oklahoma!

    :Welcome: to :signs101: ​
    Sign supply stores also have a special knife to cut coroplast.
    Go to www.fellers.com and ask for a catalog if you don't have one yet.
