Why are your printed Correx® boards so cheap?
Corrugated plastic material is not expensive. It is light and easy to cut, reducing the cost of delivery and labour. We print direct on Correx® boards instead of using digital vinyl printed and mounted onto boards. The latter method is old fashioned, expesnive and time consuming.
If it's an ideal material, why do people use more expensive materials?
Correx® is very light and although it is durable it is not as hard as foamex or aluminium, and also not as smooth a finish either. Foamex or Foamcore material may be more suitable for high profile indoor purposes like exhibitions because it has a smoother finish than corrugated Correx®. Have a look at the foamex if you need more heavy duty or exhibition panels printed.
