School signs can be printed on a number of different materials.  The most cost-effective material – and perfectly adequate for temporary signs – is corrugated plastic.  Often called coro or corex, the material has a corrugated core and a smooth plastic face.

“We print sponsor signs on corrugated plastic for Rosalia School District, Liberty School District and Northwest Christian School.  It’s a great way for public and private schools to raise the badly needed funds to enhance their sports programs,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said.

We digitally print the custom design or message, then add grommets or heavy duty double stick tape for easy hanging.

For long-term school signs, there are many more rigid sign materials to choose from.  We printed these literacy wall signs on high impact polystyrene and gatorplast for Rogers High School.  The purpose of the signs was to develop and increase students’ love for reading and literacy in their school, and they will be sure to last many years.

Some other materials for indoor and outdoor school signs include: Aluminum or Aluminum Composite Material (ACM), Lexan, Acrylic, and PVC.  Aluminum is great for safety signs, whether they’re in the parking lot or in the science lab.  Show your school pride with parking signs, visitor signs, and security signs with custom printed school name and/or mascot.

Foamcore, or foam board,

is definitely an underutilized sign material.  Though foamcore must be used solely for indoor signs, because it is both inexpensive and professional looking, foamcore signs can be used either as short- or long-term signage in almost any setting.

Use foamcore signs for:

  • Hanging signs
  • Point of Purchase signs
  • Directional signs
  • Exhibit signs and Kiosks
  • Tradeshow displays
  • Custom shaped signs
  • Easel signs
  • Presentation displays

Foamcore is a paper product with a wood-fiber veneer.  It has similar thickness to corrugated plastic, but with a smooth face, and it’s perfect for indoor displays and indoor hanging signs.  Unfortunately, the soft paper exterior of foamcore means it is not outdoor durable, and should be kept away from moisture and high-traffic areas.

Even though it can be fragile, foamcore’s positive qualities prevail:

  • Holds a high-quality digital print
  • Very lightweight; ideal for indoor hanging signs
  • Inexpensive
  • Professional looking interior signage

Our foamcore signs are custom, full color signs that can be printed either single- or double-sided.  See descriptions of foamcore and other sign materials. Our experienced design team can take a concept and create a one-of-a-kind look for your next custom sign project.  Contact us today to get started!

Coroplast Signs, also known as coro, corro, corex, fluted plastic or corrugated plastic, often gets overlooked as a serious sign substrate.  Its versatility and other great qualities lend itself to several situations, indoor and out, temporary or long-term.  Even though coro is great for yard signs (perhaps its most usual niche), its potential goes far beyond the front yard.

Some other ways to use coroplast signs include:

  • Menu boards
  • Event signs
  • Directional signs
  • A-frame signs
  • Construction signs
  • Tradeshow signs
  • Standees
  • Indoor hanging signs
  • Point of purchase signs, and more!

What makes coro so versatile is its lightweight, durable material.  It’s 100% recyclable and water- and weather-resistant.  Coupled with the inexpensive price, coroplast is an easy choice for many sign solutions.

Coro is relatively inexpensive, and it can often be used in place of a banner.  “Coroplast Signs have the same look as a banner when you put it up, and it’s cheaper than banner material,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger explained.  “We had a customer who wanted a 3’x7’ banner, and we suggested printing to coro instead.  They got two 2’x8’ coro coroplast signs for less than it would have cost for one banner.”

Signs for Success stocks Standard and Opaque Corrugated Plastic in both 4’x 8′ and 5’x 10′ sheets.  Contact us today to get started on your next custom coro sign project!
