Default Where to get Coroplast

Where would I buy a big peice of Coroplast?

Would they have it at Home Depot?

I would buy it online, but shipping is to much.

Thanks for any help.

I've seen it at Home Depot in Canada before. Not sure if they still carry it. Where I found mine was at a sign shop. Call around and see if they'll sell you a sheet (4' x 8'). 4mm seems to be the norm for smaller signs. The shop I got mine at didn't have any 2mm but was willing to order me a sheet in.

Thanks for the replys. I'll go and try to find a local sign shop.

I did try Harbor Sales Online, but the way to get the peice I would need would to buy the 8' x 4'; which shipping was $70.

Local is the way to go. I went to a commercial plastic supply house, and they sold me 2mm and 4mm coro for ~$9 per 8'x'4 sheet. They didn't stock the 2mm, but they had it brought in on their next stock truck at no charge to me.

I bought five 8'X4' sheets from them for $65, including shipping and cutting fees...

My local sign shops want $20-$30 a sheet... so Harbor Sales gets my business...
