Unhappy Where to get Coroplast?

Hey, just another quick question!

Where do you all buy your coroplast from? I have been having the hardest time finding it here.
Would you be so kind as to include the price and quantity of it from when you purchased it? Thanks so much!!
xxx Emily

Hi!

It would help to know where "here" is

I had luck finding some at an art supply store in QC, Canada (Omer de Serres) they have different thicknesses and colors.

Otherwise I've seen coroplast for sale at some printing shops (they're often used to make signs) so you should be able to track some down that way.

I paid a little less than 20$ for a 4' x 8' sheet

There are DeSerres stores in Ontario, BC and Alberta too. I guess other craft stores may have them. But I think Home Depot have some too.

Rona. $15.99 for a 4'x8' sheet the last time I bought it. Home Depot has it too but it was more expensive.

I'm having trouble finding it here in South FL as well and online when you buy you have to buy in bulk.

signage stores is another good place to start. here in B.C. we have quite a few stores called things like fastsigns. they have all different colors and will often cut it to the size you need as well. Let them know you are using it to make a cage and not a sign and they may even give it to you for cheaper.

Try a Google search of: sign shop (your zip code)
I had several show up here in Florida. I called around to get prices and the store I bought it from even cut it to size for me.

Hi Emily or anyone looking for coroplast,

I wanted to let you know, since I know a lot of people were having trouble at Home Depot stores (as there employees aren't always the best trained). You may need to ask for "corrogated plastic sheets" because they may not know what Coroplast is~ heck I didn't know what everyone was talking about on here until I looked it up! Not guaranteeing that they will know either way, but sometimes it helps to be specific.

Hope that helps.
~Melissa

Good for mentioning that. You are right. The people at the Home Depot here didn't even have a clue when I said corrugated plastic. We walked the aisles until we found it.

I live in Stillwater, Oklahoma

Anyways, thanks for helping me out everyone! I haven't went out and looked for some yet, but we have a Hobby Lobby here in town that should have some. There is one sign shop that I know of, and we also have a Low's, but not a home depot. Thanks for giving me ideas!
