    Wondering if anyone knows of a good source for poly coated board. Something we would use for printing yard signs?

    Thanks!

    Coroplast, pretty much the standard yard sign material. Any supplier should have it. Not going to find much cheaper that it.

    We used to print on stuff called "rain-coat" cardboard with a coating of something on it. We got it through a paper supplier in Omaha. It has been over 15 years so don't remember who it was. Been using coro that long instead.

    I just bought 1,000 4x8 sheets of B-fluted cardboard. Works out to about $4.00 per sheet with shipping. You could roll a clear coat on it? Can't get much cheaper than that right Mosh?

    We run thousands of sheets of this yearly. 22' x28" polyguard, .024 thick.
    Our supplier is Lamitech in NJ. 1-866-878-7708.
    This is not the place to call if your only looking for 100 sheets or something. We generally order 3-4,000 at a time.
    We screen print these with NazDar's 9700 series ink.
