    Rigid PVC - Black one side, white the other?

    I have seen samples of it, but have no idea of a manufacturer or supplier. I am looking for the 3mil variety. If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated.

    I should specify that I am looking for an expanded PVC sheet similar to Sintra. Sorry for the confusion. Also, for my application & quantities, laminating white to black would not be feasible.

    When you find it, let me know, would like to have some. Are you looking for polycarve.

    Nope, I am printing direct and would like the back to be black.
    I could,
    1. print the back black (most likely what I will end up doing)
    2. print/mount to black PVC
    3. print direct to black PVC utilizing white (too timely & expensive)

    One of my vendors used to carry it from what I am told, but only have it available in their Birmingham location and my rep didn't have a manufacturers name (or didn't want to give it to me for some reason).

    BINGO! I think we have a winner. Now to see if any of my vendors will stock it for me. I kept trying to google search it but everyone carries white and black pvc, but not in the same sheet! :banghead:

    :thankyou:

    Did a little more googling and it seems like Foamacell might be outta business. Their website has been taken over by viagra pushers & I found bankruptcy docs elswhere.
