Corrugated plastic, also known by the brand name Coroplast®, is a tough, waterproof, plastic sign material which resembles the appearance of “plastic cardboard”. The hollow-fluted design of Coroplast makes this sign material extremely lightweight, easy to handle and simple to display in a number of ways.
The lightweight properties of Coroplast makes it extremely versatile, and has made it a popular alternative to rigid Acrylic Plastic Signs and PVC Plastic Signs. Coroplast signs are also commonly preferred over poster board and foam core mounting board. Foam core is not waterproof and the surface is much more sensitive to damage than corrugated plastic.

"What are some common uses for Coroplast corrugated plastic signs?"
"When do plastic signs that look like “plastic cardboard” become a good choice?"
Just because corrugated plastic signs are cheap doesn’t mean they have to look cheap. Most people looking at signs don’t know what they’re made out of anyway — nor do they really care. When you look at signs, what do you see? The message, the colors and any graphics, right?
You can dramatically increase the effectiveness of your advertising display by focusing on these design elements. With an attractive layout and color scheme, an otherwise ordinary piece of “plastic cardboard” can be turned into a highly effective sign for your business. When you’re ready, our Art Department can create an alluring, eye-catching design for you!
"Are the Coroplast plastic sign myths true?"
Cheap corrugated plastic signs aren’t quite as “cheap” as you may have heard. The public perception of Coroplast corrugated plastic signs is that they are cheap because the materials are obviously so cheap. When compared to other sign materials, corrugated plastic sign sheeting is indeed much cheaper to buy. However, what you may not realize is that it takes exactly the same amount of time and material to design and decorate a corrugated plastic sign as it does an aluminum sign. So the reality is, the only cost difference to make an aluminum sign instead of a Coroplast sign is the difference in the raw material cost of the aluminum panel itself.
For example, the cost difference between aluminum metal signs and Coroplast corrugated plastic signs is only about $4.00, for a standard 18” x 24” sign. And yet an aluminum sign looks more professional and will last at least 5 times longer than a Coroplast corrugated plastic sign. Just thought you might like to know.
"How long do Coroplast plastic signs last?"
Corrugated Plastic Signs are the ideal material for real estate and political signage
Corrugated plastic signs are not as flexible as the vinyl banner material or as rigid as solid plastic sheets. Although custom corrugated plastic signs are commonly used outdoors, high winds can damage the corrugated sign material. Corrugated plastic signs are intended for both interior signs and short term outdoor signage. Coroplast signs used outdoors last up to 2 years, while indoor Coroplast signage can last for decades.
