Does anyone know what the material that those cheap plastic "For Sale" and "Open" signs that you can buy at hardware stores is made of? Any idea where to buy blank sheets? I'm not talking about coroplast by the way. I'm talking about that thin flexible plastic stuff....I'm not sure if its vinyl or poly or what...and I have no idea what to call it when I call a supplier so that they know what I'm talking about. Anybody have a name for the stuff?
My boss at my day job wants to hire me to screen print some signs to hang on telephone poles and the like for his other business. Needs to be weather resistant and cheap. Coroplast seems like overkill.

Look under substrates > Plastic View category
You prolly want thick polystyrene or polcarbonate sheets.
Call them though as I have their paper catalog and there seems to be a whole lot of colors to choose from that I cannot find online.

I was starting to think it had to be styrene. Thanks for the information guys! There are a couple sign supply places locally and a Curbell Plastics division right in town. Now that I know what to ask for I should be able to hunt it down. Now....what ink to use? Nazdar 9700?
