    A client has brought us a colored ribbon of very thin (plastic?) It has the same sort of feel and flexibility as Trade Show material but colored and cut into 1.25 inch by 48 inch strips. This will be a fairly large order if we can find a comparative material, but we have no experience with this.

    Any ideas what this might be and where we might be able to find it? (Preferably already cut to the 1.25 inch dimension)

    What do you mean by trade show material? Like a fabric? Do you have a picture?

    I guess I'd ask what is going to be used for. Then you can narrow it down from there. To me it looks like a very thin piece of acrylic plastic or flexite. If it was me I'd contact my distributor and ask them. If they recommend anything for what you're using it for. I use this for a lot of my poly plastic jobs. Sorry I'm not of more help.

    Woo! In case anyone was curious of the outcome to this - we found a match called Polystyrene, 0.015" thickness, with the ability to custom print and die-cut through Stouse Incorporated. Thank you everyone for your suggestions! This helped point us in the right direction!
