Correx plastic sheets are an ideal printing substrate as they can be printed with any design or coloured ink for a high-impact, high-quality sign. Correx is the brand name for polypropylene board, a corrugated plastic sheeting that is lightweight, durable and water-resistant. Correx sheets are commonly used for signage, particularly temporary signs such as estate agent boards, as it’s easy to hang using just tape, glue or nails, or it can be drilled with ease for a more permanent fixture. At Cut My Plastic, we can cut and print onto any size sheet of Correx to suit your needs using weatherproof inks that are designed to last.

What are the benefits of Correx for printing?
Correx is a cost-effective material for printing that delivers great results. It has lightweight properties that make it great for easy installation and it offers a fade-resistant surface for your image, logo or text. For a budget-friendly application, such as medium-term signs and notices, estate agency signs or indoor displays for retail spaces, Correx is a great option that can be pre-drilled for easier installation.
It can also be printed on just one or both sides for maximum visibility – for larger signs, a thicker board of 5mm or 6mm will provide more rigidity and stability, particularly for outdoor use. Despite being lightweight and portable, Correx is a tough material that will withstand exposure to wind, rain and sunshine and the design or images printed onto it will remain vibrant and clear for several years without fading.
